GENRE/TROPE LAKORN PAGE

SPECIFIC TROPES LIKE COOKING, MAFIA, CROSSDRESSING, ETC HERE!   More info on one specific trope, marriages in lakorns is here.

Most lakorns feature romance, so that's not going to be a category here. Instead, I'm going to focus on common lakorn genres for now that are subbed in English or partially subbed. Later on, I'll take a look at more in-depth tropes such as birth secrets, cross dressing, cooking, twins, and so on.

Ab Ruk Online ~ Secret Love Online

I'm sure there are many, many lakorns that I've missed putting into categories, so if you have lakorns you wish to add to any category, or just want to discuss them, feel free to talk about it here!

Lakorns in red means its still needs subbing. A (?) question mark means it may or may not fit that category.

Where can you find these lakorns? Check out our 'Incomplete' lakorn list for ones still being subbed, and 'Completed' lakorn list for completely English subbed lakorns.
SPECIFIC TROPES like cooking, crossdressing, time travel is HEREMarriages in lakorns is here.

Action - Ooh, lots of guns and punches flying here. Usually involves cops and revenge is a common feature in these lakorns. And of course, there are bad guys and good guys and the hero usually has a love interest.
