Who's Your K-Drama Love Match and Soulmates Based On Your MBTI Personality?

Monday, February 08, 2021

Sometimes, all you need is love and a little bit of introspection. 

There’s a reason why the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is still one of the most popular personality markers in the world. Not only is it a fun way to find out more about yourself by identifying with any of the 16 personality types, you could also learn to understand others - especially your significant other - better!

With romance on our minds now that Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, discover what kind of romantic partner you’re like according to your MBTI personality type as well as the K-drama characters you share similar traits with. Psst... you might find your ideal K-drama soulmate too! 
INTPs may be independent and direct, but when it comes to matters of the heart, they prefer to give hints to people they are interested in and wait for them to make the first move instead. INTPs can be loyal and passionate partners, and tend to avoid conflict if they can help it.
