Tissues may or may not be required.

1. The female lead character.

She’s either (1) drop dead gorgeous and stays that way no matter how many problems she encounters, or (2) stereotypically ugly. She’s also so unbelievably stupid when it comes to love.

2. The male lead character AKA the female lead’s one true love.

He falls in love with the lead no matter how she looks. He also comes from a very wealthy family because duh!?

3. Best friend of the lead.

The bestie always gives the comic relief despite the lead having to deal with poverty/her cheating boyfriend/a foreshadowing murder. Bonus points of the bestie is gay.

4. The villain.

Usually the male lead’s parents who are so filthy rich they had to wear their Sunday’s best and full on make up while they sleep on their $5 million bed.

Also, they almost always know some hit man who, SPOILER ALERT, would later on (fail to) murder the female lead. But that’s okay because by the end of the series, they will all come to love her and everything will be alright. <3

5. The subpar bitch villain.

Usually a female who’s head over heels with the male lead. She teams up with the male lead’s parents to make the female lead’s life miserable just to be extra evil.

6. The boy who gets friend-zoned.

Similar to the subpar bitch villain minus the bitch part. He’s kind and does everything for the female lead, but sadly ends up being mayor of the friend zone 'cause the script said so.

7. Parent of lead who gets sick—

—just when the female and male lead characters are about to have their first kiss.

8. The neighbor who loves to gossip.

Despite his/her minor role, s/he is always present because who else could possibly tell the female lead that s/he saw her boyfriend hooking up with another girl, amirite?
