!!Notable tropes in their works include:
* EpunymousTitle[=/=]PunBasedTitle: The titles of their works are often a play on words
** ''HongGilDong'' is the title character of their 2008 sageuk. Throughout the series, the name 'Hong Gil Dong' is discussed as if it isn't one person in particular, i.e. ''Hong Gil Dong is alive through you.'' Hong Gil Dong is a placeholder name in Korea, like John Doe.
*** Also, the Korean title is Sharp Knife/Blade/Sword Hong Gil Dong. In the ending narration, the monk says, "''The sword that looks the world in the face, takes note of it, and changes it — in any world, there must be a Hong Gil Dong.''" That is, anyone who stands up against injustice is a sword, or anyone is Hong Gil Dong.
** ''[[Series/YouAreBeautiful You're Beautiful]]'' - The title in Korean is "Mi-nam-i shi-ne-yo", which can be translated to ''He's/She's/You're Beautiful'' or ''He's/She's/You're Mi Nam'' because there is no pronoun. The main character is also pretending to be "Mi Nam", or rather, she ''is'' Mi Nam.
** ''[[Series/MyGirlfriendIsANineTailedFox My Girlfriend Is (a) Nine-Tailed Fox]]''. Nine-tailed fox = ''gumiho''. In Korean, there would be no indefinite article, so the title is literally ''My Girlfiend is Gumiho''. The main character is called Gu Mi Ho for most of the drama.
** ''Series/BestLove'' was previously called ''The Discovery of Affection''. The main character's name is Ae-jung (affection).
* HurricaneOfEuphemisms[=/=]HurricaneOfPuns: Their characters' tend to use puns and metaphors as euphemism for their feelings.
