Who Are The Best and Most Romanic Korean Drama Couples of All Time?
1. Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo (Descendants of the Sun)
The most popular and the hottest couple as of the moment is the Song-Song couple, after Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo's role as the lead couple in the 2016 hit drama, Descendants of the Sun became internationally recognized. Who would have thought that a sweet-looking guy like Yoo Si Jin is actually a tough soldier, and not just an ordinary soldier but a Captain of the Special Forces? Song Joong Ki's acting was so convincing that even a non-K-drama lover will definitely go gaga over him. And who would believe that inside a scary emergency room hides the most beautiful doctor? That's Kang Mo Yeon's pretty power, that even hiding in the mask and wearing the doctor's gown, Yoo Si Jin still sees her as the sexiest in the hospital. Thanks to their perfect portrayals, they are now one of the best couples ever existed in K-drama history.
Because of their perfect chemistry, fans are speculating that they are not just dating on the small screen, but also dating in real life. Chasing like a wildfire in the forest are the rumors that the two are actually dating each other, after hitting the showbiz headlines for quite some time. But their agencies denied the rumors and confirming that the two remained good friends. Aside from that, some Song Joong Ki fans doesn't like to define his pairing with Song Hye Kyo as 'Song-Song Couple', because they believed that the original Song-Song Couple is his pairing with Song Ji Hyo in Running Man. Because of this, they are also being called as the cute 'Ki-Kyo' Couple.
2. Kim Soo Hyun and Jun Ji Hyun (My Love From the Star)

Kim Soo Hyun and Jun Ji Hyun's role as the lead couple in the 2013 wildly popular series, My Love From The Star brought them into a phenomenal situation wherein they are now considered as one of the best couples in K-drama history. Do Min Joon and Cheon Song Yi’s amazing chemistry and the actor's persuasive acting have led viewers to laugh and cry for each episode. Who would forget the '15 seconds to fall in love challenge' that eventually lead into a sweet kiss during the episode 8? Or Do Min Joon's sad farewell to his girl in the planet Earth? Sure enough, they are both comical, serious, and romantic, which makes the viewers go crazy as they feel the surging love from the small screen.
Right now, there are many fans who are wishing that the series get a second season. After many months of rumors and speculation, director Jang Tae Young finally admitted that the preparations for a second season are already being prepared. However, director Jang pointed out that the possibility of Kim and Jun, taking the lead role again remains hazy. He said, "Jun Ji Hyun has her new baby, and Kim Soo Hyun is due to enlist soon. So, unfortunately, it is impossible for them to reprise their roles for the second season."
3. Park Min Young - Ji Chang Wook (Healer)
Chae Young Shin and Seo Jung Hoo
If you've ever read anything on this blog, you had to know this was coming. Healer's couple is everything I ever wanted in a K-drama romance. Shared trust, mutual support, shy glances, easy friendship, passionate kisses....If this romance doesn't work for you, you should probably get your heart checked out to make sure you aren't actually a robot. (And I'm sorry to be the one to break the robot news to you.)
4. Hyun Bin and Ha Ji Won (Secret Garden)
The Secret Garden Loveteam
Another hit drama that touches the hearts of many K-drama lovers is the Secret Garden, featuring the very handsome Hyun Bin and the queen of Korean dramas, Ha Ji Won. This drama has become hit because of its pure, heartwarming, and gentle story. And, who can forget the very passionate kiss they shared on the screen, which makes us think twice if they're dating in real life?
While filming the drama, it is reported that the two became very close friends. Hyun Bin hang outs with Ha Ji Won in his personal time. Ji Won even mentioned in 2014 that Hyun Bin is the closest among her actor friends. It is also noticeable that every time she is being asked about him, she would shyly smile. When Hyun Bin was discharged from his military service in 2013, he confessed that he sent a message to Ji Won. He said, "I texted Ha Ji Won after I was discharged from the army." After this confession, their dating rumors have accelerated, and many Secret Garden lovers are wishing that they will end up being together.
5. Jin Goo and Kim Ji Won (Descendants of the Sun)
The 'GooWon' couple may not be the highlight of the 2016 hit drama, Descendants of the Sun, but they gained the approval of many viewers with their complicated-yet-cute relationship. Playing the role of First Lieutenant Yoon Myung Joo, Kim Ji Won looked pretty tough and brave. But no one else knows that she's got a soft heart, besides her one and only man, Seo Dae Young (played by Jin Goo). Their love shows a more mature romance compared to the 'love-at-first-sight romance' of the Song-Song couple, and the hardships they have to go through just to prove their love is not a simple battle. Many fans would agree that their relationship is a lot more complicated than Yoo Si Jin and Kang Mo Yeon's situation. Because of this, many fans believed that they are the best second-lead romantic couples in K-drama history.
When asked how similar Jin Goo is to his character Seo Dae Young, Kim Ji Won replies, “About 50 percent.” She adds, “He would suddenly change 100 percent in Seo Dae Young when we were filming, but usually he has a boyish charm... He’s like what he looks like when he dances along to Red Velvet’s ‘Dumb Dumb.’”
Jin Goo married his non-celebrity girlfriend, Kim Ji Hye on 2014. They welcomed a baby boy in June 2015, and recently, announced that they are expecting their second baby.
6. Kim Seon Ho – Shin Min Ah
As the couple that inspired this topic, this duo has to be mentioned first. Although in Hometown Cha Cha Cha, the romance of Shin Min Ah and Kim Seon Ho’s characters has a rather slow progress as they argue with each other for more than half of the drama, before officially becoming a couple in episode 10, but viewers have soon left comments on how good they look together since the drama poster was released.
The reason is that the two actors have one thing in common: the adorable dimples that can capture viewers’ hearts. The two actors’ visuals also suit the taste of most viewers, a tall, soft male lead and a sweet, cute female lead. Chief Hong and dentist Yoon of Hometown Cha Cha Cha were shipped before they fell in love with each other in the drama. Now that they have acknowledged their feelings for the other, the viewers continuously get to experience heart-fluttering moments because of the extra sweet and cute moments of the couple.
7. Hyun Bin & Son Ye Jin in “Crash Landing On You”
Perhaps one of the most beloved couples on this list is Hyun Bin and Son Ye Jin from tvN’s “Crash Landing On You.” This star-crossed lovers story starts when Yoon Se Ri (Son Ye Jin) crashes into North Korea while testing out her paragliding gear for her popular company called Se Ri’s Choice. It’s there that she meets the stoic soldier Ri Jung Hyuk (Hyun Bin), who eventually takes it upon himself to protect her and get her back to South Korea unharmed.
This drama charmed viewers from the moment it began, especially since fans were eager to see Hyun Bin and Son Ye Jin reunite after their 2018 film “The Negotiation.” To say that Se Ri and Jung Hyuk had to fight tooth and nail for their happily ever after almost seems like an understatement. Their chemistry pulls you in throughout all the funny, angsty, and romantic scenes that this drama has to offer. They left a lasting impression on our hearts and are surely one of the most iconic couples in K-drama history.
8. Lee Min Ho and Ku Hye Sun (Boys Over Flowers)
Another phenomenal K-drama is the Boys Over Flowers, featuring our beautiful MinSun couple. Lee Min Ho, who played the very charismatic role of Gu Jun Pyo, eventually become attracted to Geum Jan-di. The onscreen couple gained popularity because of their perfect portrayal of two young individuals with loving hearts despite the troubles.
Recently, the lead actress, Ku Hye Sun, was married to Ahn Jae Hyun, who is known as her handsome partner in the vampire drama series 'Blood'. During her interview last year, Hye Sun remembered Min Ho in their early days in Boys Over Flowers as she mentioned, "The vibe he [Ahn Jae Hyun] gave off is similar to that of Lee Min Ho when I first met him. It was a very refreshing feel." Thanks to this, though our pretty Hye Sun has already tied the knot with her man, the 'Boys Over Flowers' fanatics will forever be reminded of the love and joy that MinSun couple once gave onscreen.
9. Jung Yong Hwa and Park Shin Hye (Heartstrings)
The cute pairing of our favorite actress, Park Shin Hye, with the handsome singer-turned-actor Jung Yong Hwa (from the K-pop boy group CNBLUE) originally started in You're Beautiful, in which Yong Hwa played the guy who had hidden feelings for Shin Hye. But the love blossomed even more when they starred in Heartstrings in 2011.
The two look so lovely together, and they are very good friends in real life. During the press conference for Heartstrings, Yong Hwa shared what he thinks about Shin Hye, “I feel so comfortable around Park Shin-hye, she’s like a member of (his group) CNBLUE. She is very laid-back and bright — she’s one of the few celebrity friends I have.” Park said at the same press conference, “Jung Yong-hwa and I know so much about each other, I think it would be difficult for us to start a romantic relationship.” Although they are not real-life couples, they are real-life friends. Who knows when their friendship can grow something into a different level as time goes by?
10. Rain and Song Hye Kyo (Full House)

Mama Bear and Papa Bear
Who wouldn't know these popular love teams from the 2004 drama Full House? Everyone will be reminded of the 'Song Hye Kyo - Rain' pairing as the cute 'Mama bear and Papa bear' couple, thanks to Hye Kyo's character who created a sweet song about one happy small family of bears living together. Just as the song suggests, the two played the role of being a family under one roof, however there are many troubles and difficulties.
Being one of the earliest love teams who touches the hearts of many K-drama lovers, these two never failed to make the viewers laugh, cry, and feel the love. Many fans will be forever thankful to them while remembering their sweet and funny scenes, while listening to the famous OST, 'I Think I Love You'. Their fair love and war in this romantic comedy brought them the Best Couple Award at the 2004 KBS Drama Awards.
11. Lee Min Ho and Park Shin Hye (The Heirs)

One of the most popular K-drama couple is the 'Lee Min Ho - Park Shin Hye' pairing which was formed from the drama, The Heirs. Playing the rich, smart, and charismatic role of Kim Tan, Min Ho has perfectly acted in the drama, as well as the innocent-looking Shin Hye, who played as Cha Eun Sang. Their story follows the common rich and poor teenagers who fell in love despite the social differences. But that chemistry was so good that "The Heirs" fans could not abandon the hope that the two would date in real life.
Fans were maybe hoping that Kim Tan and Cha Eun Sang would continue their romance into real life, but it's nice that they're good friends and respect each others' acting skills. in an interview, Min Ho said what he thinks about Shin Hye, He said, "I think she's a terrific colleague and [I] consider her a younger sister." On the other hand, Shin Hye described Min Ho as a man with great personality. She said, "Whenever we work together, we joke around and that makes it comfortable and easy for shooting to continue."
