In Focus: Korean Stars We'd Love to See in a Drama Together


With the amount of Korean dramas produced every year, it's quite surprising how there are still many actors and actresses in the industry who haven't work together yet. Personally, for us, we have lots of dream pairings that we wish we could see in a drama soon! From working together in other projects to having cute real-life friendships, these stars would surely have an amazing chemsitry as on-screen couples!

Although we rarely see these stars together, their fleeting moments next to each other have been enough to realize that they have that undeniable spark. From IU and Park Bo Gum to BLACKPINK's Jisoo and ASTRO's Cha Eun Woo, these are the Korean stars that we're dying to see paired up in a drama!  

1. Park Min Young and Lee Seung Gi

The second season of Netflix's Busted remiered just this month which features actor Lee Seung Gi as the newest cast member joining the likes of EXO's Sehun, Gugudan's Se Jeong, and actress Park Min Young. And in every scene that Min Young and Seung Gi are in, you can see how adorable they look together! They were also the chosen MCs at the 33rd Golden Disc Awards which further proves their chemistry. A drama next, yes?

2. Dara and Lee Min Ho

We first saw them together in Dara's first solo track "Kiss" MV, wherein Lee Min Ho played as her love interest. Their chemistry was on fire that they even made a short sequel that made the fans spazz even more. Since then, everyone has been waiting for a drama that stars them together. From a 3-minute video, we're hoping to get 16 episodes next!

3. BLACKPINK's Jisoo and ASTRO's Cha Eun Woo

These two K-pop idols have been the lead stars of numerous fan fictions already, and it all began when a rumor about the live-action version of the popular webtoon True Beauty popped up! People of the internet noticed how similar Jisoo and Eun Woo are from the two main characters, making them the best candidates for the roles. From their similar godly looks to their undeniable charm, it's all the fans want to happen!

4. IU and Park Bo Gum 

As fans, there's nothing like getting closer to our idols, and Park Bo Gum is certainly a fanboy who can relate to this feeling! It was last December 2017 when we first caught a glimpse of Bo Gum fanboying over IU; he was seen by fans holding a paper slogan and cheering for IU at her "Palette" concert in Seoul. Although the two have previously worked together in a commercial, we're sure that we're going to have cuter scenes if it's a drama!

5. EXO's Suho and Red Velvet's Irene

One of the most loved K-pop ships ever is SuRene, A.K.A. EXO's Suho and Red Velvet's Irene. Unlike other idol ships, these two had actual moments together already since they're under the same agency SM Entertainment. Although we get why most fans want these two to date since they look so cute together, we would love to see them first in their very own Korean drama! Suho and Irene have lead couple vibes, that's why we're sure that they would be able to pull off any character and story line!

6. Lee Sung Kyung and Park Hyung Sik

These two first worked together for the 2016 DreamWorks film Trolls, dubbing the voices of Princess Poppy and Branch for the Korean release, which premiered in February 2017. They even sang the film's OST "True Colors" that showcased their stellar vocals. After this, fans have been requesting for them to be in a drama together. Most of them are even suggesting a romantic-comedy since they both have the same humor, we just know they're going to portray any role so well!

Hopefully, we'll receive an announcement soon that at least on of these pairs is finally going to star in the drama of our dreams! When that happens, let's all go back to this article and start rooting for the next one until the time comes that they have all been paired up! For now, we're begging the K-drama gods to grant this wish list!
