One thing that Korean dramas do best is cute, innocent romance. Think of cherry blossoms, butterflies, and sunshine, and you basically have an image of how well-done romance is in Kdrama. But of course, we cannot deny that some Kdramas do it better than others, and some couples just have better chemistry with each other than the rest. So, in this post, we will list down the Top 10 Cute Couples in Kdrama!
Do Bong Soon and An Min Hyuk from Strong Girl Bong-Soon
One thing I like about this show is that it breaks the stereotype of men doing all the physical protecting. In this case, Do Bong Soon is the stronger one of the two, so she saves his life several times.
What’s great about it is that An Min Hyuk is secure in who he is and is wholly supportive of Bong Soon’s strengths. They have a very healthy and safe relationship, and that makes it heart-warming. They like to tease each other a lot, and they’re very transparent in how they like each other.
Fun fact: The main actor and actress admitted to liking each other in real life!
There may have been some fairly dark themes at certain parts of the show and their relationship was challenged. But even then, they easily make this top 10 list of cute couples in Kdrama.
Sung Deok Mi and Ryan Gold of Her Private Life
Her Private Life follows the cute story of a museum curator, Sung Deok Mi. She’s a career woman by day, and an absolute fangirl by night. And as a true fangirl, she is completely committed to her bias.
What makes her relationship with Ryan Gold so cute is that he is very supportive of her hobby – however strange it might be. Deok Mi adds a lot of color and brightness to Ryan’s otherwise monochromic life. Meanwhile, Ryan provides Deok Mi with the stability that she needs.
The best part is that their chemistry with each other is both powerful and organic. It is tangible in even their most normal activities, and this is what makes them cute.
Yoon Se-Ri and Ri Jeong Hyeok from Crash Landing on You
The story of Crash Landing On You may be a bit more serious than the others on this list. But that doesn’t stop it from having one of the cutest couples in Kdrama. Fans know them as the RiRi couple, and their chemistry is astounding.
The first half of the series really showed their playfulness and natural chemistry, whereas the second half revealed the depth of their love for each other. We get to see serious Captain Ri pout and become jealous. We also witness career woman Se Ri turn into an absolute softy.
I’m just glad they got the best possible ending to their story, because they deserve it.
The best part is that Hyun Bin and Son Ye Jin who played Captain Ri and Se Ri ended up dating after the drama ended. They got married earlier this year, and they’re now expecting a baby together!
Kwon Jung Rok and Oh Jin Shim from Touch Your Heart
In the Kdrama world, couples that have already been paired with each other in one show do not get paired again. This one is an exception because they’re really just that cute.
Lee Dong Wook and Yoo In Na, the actor and actress who portrayed Jung Rok and Jin Shim, already worked together as the second lead couple in Goblin. They quickly became fan favorites, so they ended up doing Touch You Heart together.
In this show, they had a love-hate relationship going on, then, when they got together, they tried to hide their relationship from their workmates. It was very amusing and very cute.
Yoo Shi Jin and Kang Mo Yeon from Descendants of the Sun
So, Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo who played this couple got married and got divorced in real life. BUT that doesn’t minimize just how cute their relationship was in this show, when their feelings for each other were still developing.
This is another love-hate type of relationship, featuring an army man and a doctor. They first met in Korea, it didn’t work out, then they met in war-torn Uruk. The place became the perfect backdrop for their love story, featuring crystal clear waters, rescue missions, and a lot of heart-pounding moments.
Kim Bok Joo and Jung Joon Hyung from Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo
I think that this show didn’t get as much recognition as it deserved, simply because many people thought the show was too light and sweet. But that’s what made it so cute.
Kim Bok Joo and Jung Joon Hyung have a cute friends-to-lovers story, and there wasn’t really heavy drama in their relationship. Most of their fights involved petty jealousy, and it’s all done in a manner that would make people perceive it as cute, not annoying.
Fun Fact: The actor and actress were also friends for years before dating in real life.
Nam Se Hee and Yoon Ji Ho from Because This is My First Life
Look, this couple went through A LOT together and the drama isn’t all rainbows and butterflies. But it’s because of this that they had built a solid foundation in their relationship.
Eventually, the strong love they had for one another was evident even in their day to day. The moments of joy they shared in the mundane made their love feel cute and warm.
Vincenzo and Cha Young from Vincenzo
This is a love story built on friendship, camaraderie, and shared goals. Though they started out being annoyed at each other, a few forehead flicking and gang incidents later, we find our main character lowkey falling in love.
They are very sweet and encouraging, they share a lot of trust, and they are goofy around one another. Just look at this photo! We love them, and we ship it.
Lee Jun Ho and Woo Young Woo of Extraordinary Attorney Woo
A couple that fights for justice together stays together. Watching their love slowly and warmly blossom through the episodes is a revelation. And they’re not just a cute couple together; they’re powerful together.
What’s best about them is they embrace each other’s quirks, and they are extremely patient with one another. They’re just happy enough to spend time together, and that’s a trait that makes a top cute couple – not just in Kdrama but in real life.
Jung Ji Ho and Choi Sang Eun from Love In Contract
Park Min Young always has great chemistry with her co-actors, and Ko Gyung Pyo isn’t an exception. Fake dating (or in this case, fake marriage) is always an amusing trope, and it works for a reason.
This show is still ongoing, but so far, we’ve seen our main leads being in denial of their feelings, playing hard to get, and hiding their jealousy. They have all the makings of a top cute Kdrama couple for sure!
