I Need Romance (Korean로맨스가 필요해; RRRomaenseuga Pilyohae) is a 2011 South Korean romantic comedy series starring Jo Yeo-jeong, Kim Jeong-hoon, Choi Yeo-jin, Choi Song-hyun and Choi Jin-hyuk. It aired on tvN from June 13 to August 2, 2011 on Mondays and Tuesdays at 23:00 for 16 episodes.[1]

The cable drama revolves around three thirty-something career women and their complicated love lives. It was popular with female viewers in their 20s and 30s for depicting contemporary women in a realistic way.[2][3]


Funny, romantic, and just a little racy, I Need Romance follows the Sex and the City-like adventures of three thirty-something best friends looking for love in modern-day Seoul.



Currently, there are two spin-offs, I Need Romance 2012 (2012) and I Need Romance 3 (2014).
