A Guide to K-drama Main Leads: The Relationship Map

Tuesday, June 09, 2020

If you’re a hardcore Hallyu fan, have you ever stopped to think that all your favorite stars might be connected to each other through their shows? Just like The King: Eternal Monarch, there must be multiple parallel universes in K-drama where someone’s love rival might be another one’s sweetheart in a different series. Now that we’ve got your interest, here is our K-drama Relationship Map that might just help you connect the dots between our favourite characters!

Kim Go Eun x Jung Hae In
While Ji Eun-tak (Kim Go-eun) and oppa Tae-hee (Jung Hae-in) were nothing more than a childhood crush in Goblin, they end up as each other’s soulmate in Tune in for Love.

Kim Woo Bin x Suzy
Choi Young-do (Kim Woo-bin) might not get the girl in The Heirs, but at least someone gives him the love that he truly deserves in Uncontrollably Fond as Shin Joon-young.

Lee Min Ho x Jun Ji Hyun x Kim Go Eun x Park Shin Hye
A rich man in all three worlds - Inheritors, The Legend of the Blue Sea, and The King: Eternal Monarch - Lee Min-ho definitely has a type and that’s a woman who can fight her own battles! 

Park Seo Joon x Kim Da Mi x Park Min Young
What does a bar manager and an office secretary have in common? Park Seo-joon as their boss, and later their man, in Itaewon Class and What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim. 

Son Ye Jin x Jung Hae In x Hyun Bin
Son Ye-jin’s characters have mastered the art of finding love in unlikely places: Yoon Jin-ah falls for a much younger man to the horror of her family in Something in The Rain, while South Korean chaebol Yoon Se-ri falls for a North Korean soldier in Crash Landing on You. There must be something about forbidden love that’s worth fighting for! 

Lee Seung Gi x Park Min Young x Suzy
Lee Seung-gi = murder solving genius with two different partners: Park Min-young in Busted: Season 2 and Go Hae-ri (starring Bae Suzy) in Vagabond. 

Hyun Bin x Park Shin Hye x Son Ye Jin
Imagine if strong Captain Ri Jeong-hyeok from Crash Landing on You and the smart and tech-savvy Yoo Jin-woo from Memories of the Alhambra teamed up - they would be undefeatable, but who would Jung Hae-Joo (starring Park Shin Hye) choose? 

Kim Go Eun x Lee Min Ho x Gong Yoon | Jung Ji Hyun x Kim Soo Hyun
Only Cheon Song-yi (starring Jun Ji Hyun) from My Love from the Star, Jeong Tae-eul (starring Kim Go-eun), and Ji Eun-tak (starring Kim Go-eun) know how it feels to fall for a man from another world.
