Nowadays, most Korean dramas have a novel version in order to cash in. Here are some that I was able to find out.

Something About 1 Percent (2013)
I'm I the only person that likes this Korean drama? Well, after a rewatch, it did get on my nerves a little.
The novel is published in 2002 and goes for $9.50. Think it is not a novelization but the source material considering the published date of the book.


Joseon Shooter
 The novelization comes out as 2 books and is $13 each. It is a TV novelization.

It's Ok, This is Love

 This is a script book and not a novelization comes out as 2 books and is $15 each. I did not like the show. So, not particularity interested.
