K-Drama lovers out there, who are your favorite drama couples of the year?
On November 4, entertainment sports site Joy News 24 released their survey results for the “Best Drama Couple of 2019”. It was conducted last month from October 15 to October 22 in celebration of their 15th anniversary. Check out the top 3 couples below!
1. Kang Ha Neul and Gong Hyo Jin
Coming in at first place are Kang Ha Neul and Gong Hyo Jin. They are currently starring in the KBS2 drama When The Camellia Blooms, which is about a police officer named Hwang Yong Sik (played by Kang Ha Neul) who falls deeply in love with a single mother named Dong Baek (played by Gong Hyo Jin). Viewers love how refreshing their romance is, so unlike other dramas where the leads engage in a vague, “push and pull” relationship.
Their chemistry doesn’t just end on-screen, however. Recently, Gong Hyo Jin even named Kang Ha Neul as the best male co-star she has ever worked with.
2. IU and Yeo Jin Goo
Making it to second place are IU and Yeo Jin Goo. The two starred in the tvN drama Hotel Del Luna, which is about a mystical hotel that caters to ghosts and is owned by Jang Man Wol (played by IU) and newly managed by Koo Chan Sung (played by Yeo Jin Goo). Viewers are especially drawn to the witty dialogue between the two leads, as well as to their outstanding chemistry.
3. Ahn Jae Hong and Chun Woo Hee
At third place are Ahn Jae Hong and Chun Woo Hee. They starred in the JTBC drama Be Melodramatic, which revolves around the lives of three women in their thirties who are still trying to figure out how to be adults. Viewers enjoyed the cute interactions between Ahn Jae Hong and Chun Woo Hee, even saying they have “crazy chemistry”.
