8 Korean Couples
Who Made Fans Go Crazy
Because of their Real-Life Romance
By Patti Sunio
Part of K-fandom is having “ships” we root for and feel so strongly about. So when news breaks out about our favorite ship finally dating, getting married, or breaking up, it definitely affects us a hundred percent.
This year, we’ve been witness to a lot of pleasantly surprising news of new couples (omooo!), updates on our long-dating couples going strong (aja aja!), and a few breakups (boo). Here are 8:
Lee Min Ho and Suzy Bae
Top endorsers and undeniably our favorite leading K-drama actors! In 2015, the two finally got together and officially announced their dating status. They also recently just celebrated their second anniversary with friends, before Lee Min Ho went away for military service. We are really hoping for wedding bells after he is discharged!
Kim Woo Bin and Shin Min Ah
Certified Hallyu stars Kim Woo Bin and Shin Min Ah are another favorite and practically one of the most photogenic pairs in Korean romance history. They are also one of the highest paid pairs, what with their perfect face and model stature! The two first met for a Giordano campaign ad, and that’s where it all started.
Ahn Jae Hyun and Ku Hye Sun
Seeing their married life up close and personal wasn’t just an episode of We Got Married—it’s for real. They are one of Korea’s most kyeopta couple, Blood co-stars Ahn Jae Hyun and Ku Hye Sun, and we fell in love with their innocent appearance and childlike spirit! We can’t believe they are already talking about married life, revealing who does the chores, who is clumsy while eating, and more!
Rain and Kim Tae Hee
A real-life romance drama right before our eyes, these two! For a lot of us, Rain will always be the Hallyu star who’s introduced us to the K-world; while Kim Tae Hee is one of the most sought-after endorsers in Korea. The two recently wed in a very solemn ceremony, and as of today, are expecting their first child already!
