Warning: minor spoilers forward
Somni: Lee Hwa Shin & Go Jung Won (“Don’t Dare to Dream”)
The legendary rom-com “Don’t Dare to Dream” (often known as “Jealousy Incarnate”) obtained a lot of love and a spotlight not solely due to the chemistry between Jo Jung Suk and Gong Hyo Jin but in addition that of Jo Jung Suk and Go Kyung Pyo. Their bromance is my favourite in any K-drama by far! Although Lee Hwa Shin (Jo Jung Suk), Pyo Na Ri (Gong Hyo Jin), and Go Jung Won (Go Kyung Pyo) are entangled in a love triangle, because of the tight-knit friendship between Hwa Shin and Jung Won who can’t keep away from one another, they create unprecedented comedian scenes which can be filled with laughter and comfortable tears. I nonetheless keep in mind the epic scene by which Hwa Shin and Jung Won fiercely combat one another over Na Ri in a mudflat whereas Na Ri is deeply immersed in clam digging and has no thought what is occurring behind her. After going by the turbulent phases of affection and hate, Hwa Shin and Jung Won open up their true emotions and make as much as root for one another’s happiness.

Yeon: Kim Sung Ryong & Seo Yul (“Good Manager”)
My favourite K-drama bromance to this present day must be the hilarious duo of Kim Sung Ryong (Namgoong Min) and Seo Yul (Lee Junho) in “Good Manager.” Working collectively on the identical firm, they by no means appear to get together with their utterly reverse personalities and Seo Yul always being aggravated by Sung Ryong’s antics. However, their fixed bickering ultimately results in an sudden partnership and powerful teamwork. Their love-hate relationship and amusing chemistry led to the actors even successful Best Couple on the 2017 KBS Drama Awards! What higher proof of an incredible bromance?

Sehee: Park In Sung & Kim Sun Joo (“Unlock My Boss”)
The bromance in “Unlock My Boss” is sort of totally different in comparison with what you’ll see in most different K-dramas. “Unlock My Boss” is a novel comedy thriller about Park In Sung (Chae Jong Hyeop), an unemployed job-seeker whose life modifications after he picks up a smartphone that traps the soul of Kim Sun Joo (Park Sung Woong), the CEO of the massive IT company Silver Lining. The bromance between the 2 characters is made particular as they work collectively and obtain nice teamwork by their variations in school and background, fixing mysteries and working an organization collectively.

Natalie: Kim Shin & Grim Reaper (“Guardian: The Lonely and Great God”)
There’s extra to life than simply Cinderella and Prince Charming, proper? Life’s additionally a few misplaced goblin and a cold-hearted grim reaper who kind a ravishing friendship…proper? Whether you agree or not, you possibly can’t deny that “Guardian: The Lonely and Great God” (often known as “Goblin”) has the best possible bromance duo, with the Goblin Kim Shin (Gong Yoo) and the Grim Reaper (Lee Dong Wook) displaying off their insane chemistry that simply flows out of the display screen. The pair grows a distaste for each other as they start cohabiting in Kim Shin’s home however quickly develops a scrumptious love-hate relationship as they spend extra time collectively and understand that they’re extra comparable than they thought. Their quirky banter provides the drama a breeze of recent air within the midst of its heavy plot. Also, Gong Yoo and Lee Dong Wook have stolen the hearts of many with their visible chemistry. If you don’t imagine me, take a look at episode 2 at 1:15:16. If this doesn’t persuade you to binge watch “Guardian: The Lonely and Great God,” what’s going to?

Seyeon: Jang Geu Rae & Han Seok Yul (“Incomplete Life”)
My favourite K-drama bromance comes from the hit workplace drama “Incomplete life” (often known as “Misaeng”), which portrays Korean company life in a really practical method. So-called “unqualified” intern Jang Geu Rae (Im Si Wan) is thrown into the company world with zero expertise after failing to grow to be knowledgeable Go participant. On the opposite hand, Han Seok Yul (Byun Yo Han) comes from a blue collar textile background and has a really pleasant persona. The chemistry between these two very totally different characters offers some comedic aid to the present, retaining the drama from being too darkish and making it rather more fulfilling.

Ginny: Yoo Shi Jin & Seo Dae Young (“Descendants of the Sun”)
I’ve to say Song Joong Ki and Jin Goo in “Descendants of the Sun” had the best bromance chemistry of all K-drama bromances. Song Joong Ki performs Yoo Shi Jin, the captain of a Korean particular forces unit, and Jin Goo performs fellow soldier Seo Dae Young. While they’ve their very own respective romances happening, the 2 clearly present a strong friendship. Considering that they’re in a conflict zone, they get caught in unbelievable conditions however handle to get out of it utilizing their expertise and wonderful teamwork. It’s additionally hilarious to see how Seo Dae Young reacts to Yoo Shi Jin always poking enjoyable at him. It’s a must-watch collection with unforgettable bromance!

Winnie: Lee Young & Kim Byung Yeon (“Love in the Moonlight”)
Park Bo Gum and Kwak Dong Yeon performed the roles of shut mates in “Love in the Moonlight.” In the historic drama, palace guard Kim Byung Yeon (Kwak Dong Yeon) reveals full loyalty for Crown Prince Lee Young (Park Bo Gum), even making a serious sacrifice to guard him, resulting in a really emotional scene that stole my tears (and the actors’ tears as effectively in keeping with interviews). Their bond has additionally prolonged past the drama, with the actors displaying their long-lasting friendship and enjoyable chemistry within the selection present “Young Actors’ Retreat” final yr!

JJin: Cha Young Min & Go Seung Tak (“Ghost Doctor”)
My favourite K-drama bromance must be Rain and Kim Bum in “Ghost Doctor.” Cha Young Min (Rain) is an excellent surgeon with “golden hands,” however he’s additionally boastful and egocentric. Go Seung Tak (Kim Bum) is a genius in the case of medical information, however he has a concern of blood. A sudden accident turns Cha Young Min right into a “coma ghost,” and his spirit continues to own Go Seung Tak’s physique. Their bromance is full of a lot of enjoyable, sarcasm, and playfulness! It is amusing to see them go from genuinely hating one another to being literal soulmates. Additionally, they develop as people by constructing on one another’s strengths. Another motive to observe this drama is Kim Bum’s portrayal of Cha Young Min’s possession and the thriller surrounding their unanswered backstories!

Sala: Go Nam Soon & Park Heung Soo (“School 2013”)
It’s inconceivable to overlook the legendary duo of Lee Jong Suk and Kim Woo Bin in “School 2013,” the fifth installment of the well-known “School” collection. In “School 2013,” Go Nam Soon (Lee Jong Suk) and Park Heung Soo (Kim Woo Bin) battle to face varied school-related points involving bullying, teachers, and friendships. At the beginning of the drama, Go Nam Soon and Park Heung Soo have a rocky relationship regardless of having as soon as been shut mates up to now. However, it rapidly turns into very evident that they nonetheless look after one another deeply. Despite Park Heung Soo’s adamant refusal to simply accept Go Nam Soon again in his life, Go Nam Soon continues to precise concern and affection, ultimately worming his method again into Park Heung Soo’s life and rekindling their damaged friendship. “School 2013” forgoes the standard romance subplot to concentrate on simply the friendships between the scholars, and the forged’s portrayal actually conveyed the uncooked feelings and pressure between the characters. What makes the drama shine much more is the stellar performing and simple chemistry between Lee Jong Suk and Kim Woo Bin, with their real-life friendship additionally withstanding the check of time!
