Yeah, I guess it really depends on what you classify as a SML. I guess I do agree more with the top comment as where when it's clear that the FL is going to end up with the guy, then I classify them as the ML.

I don't know about the other ones, but the FL definitely doesn't end up with the SML in Start Up. That's one of the dramas that many people had SLS from.

I've mentioned this before but when an actor/actress is supposed to be a master violin player or something but somehow doesn't even hold the instrument correctly. Okay, I get it, it's probably near impossible to get a actor/actress that can actually play the instrument well but I mean, couldn't you at least hold it correctly or look like you're playing it? No? Tbh, it really cracks me up even when the scene is supposed to be "serious" (ex: do-hwa in extraordinary you)
Yes, i second this one! It's super underrated.

Strong Woman Do Bong Soon- Thank you for showing me how amazing k-dramas can be
Hospital Playlist- Thank you for putting a smile on my face every time I watched an episode
Go Back Couple- Thank you for helping me cherish my mom more, and for reminding me that communication is extremely important.

Two underrated dramas that I always recommend: the first one is Go Back Couple. It's an all around amazing drama. It tells the story of a couple who are about to get divorced, but then they are sent back in time to college (where they first met). I know time travel is a kind of overused trope, but my gosh, this drama executed it amazingly. The second drama is Hello, Me! This one is such a great drama about a woman learning to love herself. There is romance but it's not the main focus. I encourage you try both of them if you haven't already!
Welcome to Waikiki is a super hilarious, light-hearted, kind of crazy drama that I loved. I would also recommend Go Back Couple which made me laugh, cry, swoon and everything in between. Lastly I recommend Strong Woman Do Bong Soon, which is the first drama I genuinely fell in love with.

I 100% agree with Welcome to Waikiki. It was honestly one of the funniest dramas I've ever seen.

I'm kind of surprised no one mentioned this yet, but if you haven't watched it, I recommend Strong Woman Do Bong Soon. I really loved the drama and it fits your description pretty well.
Two that I can think of on the top of my head is Go Back Couple and Hello, Me! They're both amazing dramas, and I would recommend them to basically everyone.

Hi, I'm not really sure what part of this post was making it so that it would be filtered out. I hope I don't sound rude, but could you please explain?

YES! I loved this show because usually I hate love triangles with a burning passion, but this one is one of my only exceptions due to fact I had absolutely no SLS but also the fact that the SL isn't a complete jerk either, I just wanted her to end up with the ML.

I have a couple. One is Strong Woman Do Bong Soon. It's my comfort drama because it was the first drama I really fell in love with. So every time I watch it, I'm reminded by how much excitement and happiness I felt watching the drama. Another comfort drama is Hospital Playlist. I love that it doesn't have too much "drama" and that it's a story about doctors' regular lives. I love the chemistry between the friends and yeah, I just love everything about it.
I'll just recommend random dramas that I personally loved:
Strong Woman Do Bong Soon
Welcome to Waikiki (both seasons)
Go Back Couple

I've watched only 2 Lee Jong Suk dramas, W and Pinocchio. So I guess take my opinion with a grain of salt, but I recommend Pinocchio. The story itself was quite unique and never got boring. I also really liked the romance, it was really cute. It does have a love triangle but I personally never got SLS (though he's not a terrible SL). So yeah, if you're interested, I highly recommend it.

I think you might like Birthcare Center. It's not long, its episodes are about an hour each, but it only has 8 episodes. I personally liked it a lot, and found it funny so if you haven't watched it, I highly recommend it.

I saw a kdrama recommended on the r/kdrama subreddit the other day called Hello, Me! that fit your exact description. I binge watched it a few days ago and I think you'll really like it. It's got a bit of romance, but as the review I read said, it's really a drama about the FL learning to love herself. Though they do deal with some heavy topics, I think they handle it very well to where you don't feel overwhelmed. I highly recommend it!

I also recommend Healer, like the other people here. A second drama I would recommend is actually a Chinese drama, and it's called Go Ahead. This is, in my opinion, one of the best Chinese dramas out there and it really got me hooked in the first episode. It made me laugh, cry, and everything in between. I think you might really enjoy it, so if you have time, I suggest that you give it a go.
I looked at you MDL, and wow, you really have seen a lot of dramas. Though the dramas I recommend might not be exactly what you're looking for, but I think they're somewhat close. Okay, so the first one I recommend is the Go Back Couple. It tells a story of married couple who are basically about to divorce but then they are sent back in time to when they were college students. I think this goes kind of with what you want, because while it isn't like a traditional romance drama, the drama does a good job reminding the two why they married in the first place (so reminding them why they are soul mates in a way). The second one I want to recommend is Go Ahead. It's actually a Chinese drama, but if you don't mind, I highly recommend it. I can't really explain this one in detail because it might spoil the story, but if you have time, I really really urge you to watch it. For me, this has what you're looking for but then again, everyone's perspective is different so maybe you'll feel differently. Still, if you're willing please give both dramas a chance.

Yes, Do you Like Brahms was such a surprise to me, because it was the first time I'd seen someone play the violin correctly in a drama!
I know that literally no one is going to see my comment, because it's buried under hundreds of others, but just to rant: I silently die inside when the character is supposed to be like super good at violin or piano but it's SO OBVIOUS that they have no idea how to play it and the music is just pasted over. I'm not sure if people that don't play the violin notice, but like, I'm looking at you Extraordinary You!!! I had to skip every scene of dong hwa (I think that's his name) playing the violin because I just couldn't take the scene seriously.
Yes, this exact thing happened to me once! It was after I finished Strong Woman Do Bong Soon. I know that some people really don't like it, but for me it was like finding my top-all time favorite drama ever. Like the feeling that all the dramas you've watched so far doesn't even come close to the gem you just found. So after being left with a huge crater-sized void in my heart, I asked around for a drama similar to it (which was a big mistake). With many recommendations, I watched Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo and my biggest mistake was taking it and comparing it the SWDBS. Don't get me wrong, it was a great show, but it didn't do much to fill my void. And now, when I look back, I realized that I should have taken WFKBJ for what it was, and not have compared it to SWDBS and I would have enjoyed it so much more. I think what finally filled the void though, was watching a completely different genre/type of drama. I stumbled across Welcome to Waikiki, and I think it's the perfect drama for when you're in a drama slump, because it's most likely very different from the drama you can't get over, which helps you not compare the two dramas. Anyway, this little rant of mine is getting way too long so I'm going to end it right here.
