Five On-Screen Couples Fans Want To See Paired In Real-Life

Five On-Screen Couples Fans Want To See Paired In Real-Life

(Photo : Millet, MBC, tvN) On July 1, the Korean outlet Dispatch published an exclusive story which claimed that "Pinocchio" stars Park Shin Hye and Lee Jong Suk were dating. S.A.L.T Entertainment, the agency which represents Park immediately denied the claims. Their statement was followed by one issued on behalf of Lee Jong Suk, who also denied the dating rumors.

A representative from WellmadeYedang provided a statement to Newsen which refuted the claims. "Lee Jong Suk and Park Shin Hye are not dating," said the spokesman. "They are just friends."

Dating rumors surrounding the couple escalated after they were spotted together, along with other top Korean stars, at a May 2015 resort wear party hosted by Chanel.

While their agencies denied that they were dating, outlets including the Korea Times posted photos from the Chanel resort event and social media to bolster the rumors.

News of Park Shin Hye and Lee Jong Suk was less startling to audiences who fell in love with their on-screen image during "Pinocchio."

The biggest challenge for actors and K-Variety stars is to convince audiences that an on-screen relationship could develop in the real world.

Here are five K-Drama and K-Variety couples that touched our hearts during the first half of 2015.

1. Lee Jong Suk and Park Shin Hye

Most fans were not shocked by news that Lee Jong Suk would actually date Park Shin Hye. Their on-screen chemistry in "Pinocchio" provided some of the sweetest K-Drama moments of early 2015. From their toast kiss to their shaving scene, the pair managed to captivate viewers.

2. Song Jae Rim and Kim So Eun

The LTE Couple is one of the most beloved pairs to appear on "We Got Married," in quite some time. Viewers continue to mourn their departure from the variety showwhile harboring hopes that they will continue their romance off-screen.

3. Gary and Song Ji Hyo

The playful banter between Gary and Song Ji Hyo are one of the primary reasons to watch "Running Man." The Monday Couple continues to attract attention, years after they were made an on-screen pair.

4. Park Min Young and Ji Chang Wook

Ji Chang Wook and Park Min Young shared so many adorable moments in "Healer." Their charismatic interactions transformed the action series into a timeless K-Drama hit.

5. Lee Jong Hyun and Gong Seungyeon

CNBLUE"s Lee Jong Hyun and actress Gong Seungyeon have helped to draw interest back to "We Got Married." Whether they are learning Kendo or visiting their family members, they approach one another with lighthearted joy.

K-Drama Actors Cope With Real-Life Mental Health Issues And Still Deliver A Great Performance

K-Drama Actors Cope With Real-Life Mental Health Issues And Still Deliver A Great Performance

Lee Joon

Lately, a few k-dramas have focused on male leads with mental health issues. Schizophrenia was the condition affecting Jo in Sung"s character in "It"s Okay, That"s Love." Dissociative identity disorder, also known as multiple personality disorder, affected Ji Sung"s character in "Kill Me, Heal Me."

But some k-drama actors have to deal with real-life mental health issues. And they manage to deliver a great performance despite these issues.

Former MBLAQ member Lee Joon, who currently stars in "Heard It Through The Grapevine," suffers from insomnia, caused by stress and bipolar disorder. The actor and singer admitted that he sometimes sleeps only 40 minutes in a 24-hour period.

When criticized for falling asleep during a program and not being admitted to Seoul University because he could not study, he told the Korean media outlet Newsen about the disorder.

"I had no time to rest during that period. I knew that I had to study, but I couldn"t. I have severe bipolar disorder and people only saw what was broadcast on TV. They don"t see the effort behind the screen, such as late night rehearsals. No matter how hard I tried, my body just couldn"t keep up with me."

Yet he continues to work hard to reach his acting goals.

Park Hae Jin and Lee Byung Hun have both struggled with depression. In the case of Park Hae Jin, the news that he struggled with depression hurt his career. Park was treated for anxiety and depression, which wound up exempting him from his two-year mandatory military duty. This led to some netizens accusing him of draft dodging. According to Korean military law, any man who has been treated for six months or hospitalized for more than a month at the psychiatry department of a hospital may be excused from serving. Park was cleared and although this temporarily hurt his career, it has recovered.

When Lee Byung Hun appeared on a 2013 episode of "Healing Camp" he said that he suffered from depression and panic attacks after his father died and left him in debt.

"At the time, my drama "Beautiful Days" was really popular, and I was able to pay off the debt, I was supposed to be happy, but right then, I fell into depression," he said. "I felt like I was trapped in a small room. It was really difficult to even open my eyes. As soon as I opened my eyes, I wondered why I woke up. The happiest time was when I was asleep. I later found out it was depression."

Although the depression has lifted, he says he still occasionally suffers from panic attacks when he is in crowded places with unfamiliar people.

Cha Tae Hyun, who will soon appear in "Producers," also admitted to suffering from panic attacks.

"I began to suffer from the disorder when a top actor was cast for a role in a rival TV drama after the show I appeared in continued to do poorly in ratings," said Cha. The attacks can be severe. Cha once fainted during a flight and another time had to call an ambulance only a half hour before a concert.

Given the problems these actors cope with, it"s even more impressive that they manage to deliver a top-notch performance.

Reel-to-real Celebrity Couples: Top Actors Chase After Their Drama Co-stars!

Reel-to-real Celebrity Couples: Top Actors Chase After Their Drama Co-stars!

It's no surprise that actors who have chemistry on-screen find themselves falling in love with the co-star even when cameras are turned off! Following the many K-drama finales where they make us swoon, male stars try to recreate fairy-tale romances for themselves without the help of any script. Some confess their feelings to their first love, while others fall head over heels for ladies they just met. The outcomes differ, but their love is the same.

I have listed a few of the many handsome actors who initiated a relationship.

1. Ji Sung

TheKill Me Heal Me actor relentlessly pursued Lee Bo Young for three months before she agreed to go out with him. He even promised to give up acting for her because she didn't want to date fellow actors.

2. Kwon Sang Woo

After he saw Son Tae Young in MBC's Come To Play, he was interested in meeting her. Fellow actor Kim Sung Soo introduced the two beautiful stars to each other at a dinner party. The Temptation actor had to compete with another suitor at the party to win her heart. When the other guy left early, he stayed until the end of the reception to win her over.

3.  Yun Jung Hoon

The Vampire Prosecutor star had to pursue Han Ga In for three months before his shy lady agreed to date him. He even treated her agent to drinks on a regular basis during the filming of the 2003 KBS series Yellow Handkerchief.

4. Oh Ji Ho

The Maids actor met his first love in high school, but she had a boyfriend during their school days. Five years later, she was finally single, and Oh jumped at the opportunity to date the woman he had fallen for years ago. They broke up after only one month of dating because she cheated on him.

Nonetheless, Oh Ji Ho married the real woman of his dreams last year.

5. Seo In Guk

He actually pursued his co-star, A Pink's Eun Ji, from Answer Me 1997. The singer and actor texted he loved her and asked to meet up after filming. He developed feelings for her during their tvN's drama filming. Unfortunately, the "Hush" singer didn't return his affections. Their relationship never materialized.

6. Ji Hyun Woo

The Trot Lovers actor boldly declared that he loved his Queen In Hyun’s Man co-star Yoo In Na at the drama's finale fan meeting. She was utterly surprised by his confession, and the pair dated for two years before calling it quits.

7. Woo Young

The 2PM singer had his fellow JYP Entertainment labelmate Seulong text IU for him during their Dream High days. He wanted to get closer to his pretty co-star so he needed a little help. The You're The Best Lee Soon Shin actress responded with a cold text, but the pair eventually went on two dates together. He paid both times!

Which actor would you have wanted pursuing you?

Kim Ji Won Talks Character and Possibility of Real-Life Couples from "The Heirs"

Kim Ji Won Talks Character and Possibility of Real-Life Couples from "The Heirs"

Kim Ji Won Talks Character and Possibility of Real-Life Couples from The HeirsKim Ji Won took on the spoiled rich girl role as Rachel Yoo in “The Heirs,” a departure from previous roles playing good girls. In an interview with My Daily, she talked about her role in the drama, as well as shared her thoughts on the drama pairings.

Kim Ji Won watched writer Kim Eun Sook’s previous works to prepare for her character, and thought that Park Min Sook (Kim Jung Nan) from A Gentleman’s Dignity would be what Rachel would be like when she grew up. 

In person, Kim Ji Won is the exact opposite of Rachel Yoo. While Rachel Yoo comes straight to the point, and always says what she wants to say, Kim Ji Won comes across as being surprisingly shy. She doesn’t get angry easily, and she thinks about saying something for a while before she says it, so she says she’s missed the opportunity to speak up many times. She says the scene that sticks in her mind the most is the scene where Rachel drops a bomb on everyone at the pancake restaurant in Episode 3, making it extremely uncomfortable for Kim Tan (Lee Min Ho), Eun Sang (Park Shin Hye) and Chan Young (Kang Min Hyuk).

“That scene embodied Rachel as a character the best. Rachel always stays true to her feelings and instincts. She’s part of high society, and trying to behave like an adult, but I see Rachel as being very much her teenage self. When she falls in love, she’ll throw money or anything and go all-in; she’s definitely done a lot of things that were not mature and adult-like.”

She also revealed that she took a page out of Blair Waldorf’s book, referring to American drama “Gossip Girl,” pointing out elements such as Blair’s vicious expressions and conceited gestures of superiority. The straight-cut bangs, though, were entirely writer Kim Eun Sook’s idea.

“Writer-nim expressed that it would be good if I got heavy bangs. She thought that the stuffy bangs would suit Rachel’s image better. I liked having bangs. It was a small change but made a world of difference. I can’t imagine a Rachel without bangs right now.”

Kim Ji Won’s real-life dating style is also very different from Rachel’s. While Rachel is the type to give her heart completely to the person she likes, and obsess and follow after them, Kim Ji Won says that if the other person doesn’t like her, she would go through a period of heartache alone and then break it off cleanly.

“I’ve been asked before if I’ve been in any relationships, and I’ve said no. But in truth, I have had a boyfriend previously. It was in between transitioning from the third year of middle school to the first year of high school. But it’s hard to call it a romantic relationship. Thinking back, he was just a male friend that I went to extra classes outside with and ate with.” (Laughs)

She’s got such a pretty face, so it was hard to believe that she had had nearly no dating experience. When asked there was anyone who caught her eye while filming “The Heirs,” she said, “It was all business for us. We built friendships, but it ended cleanly.”

“I don’t know of any of us who became a couple after the show ended. I don’t understand it, and none of the staff do either. When we filmed at the school outside Seoul, all the actors came down from the city. We waited in the classrooms in between takes, and sat at the desks like students while eating snacks and chit-chatting.”

However, through this project, she’s gained an admirer in the form of actor Kang Ha Neul, who played Lee Hyo Shin. In the drama, both liked other characters, but due to an unexpected kiss, the two gradually built an attraction to one another. Before the final episode, the two revealed a picture of them holding hands with one another, causing viewers to be curious if their characters would end up together in the drama.

“I met Ha Neul-oppa before while working on the drama ‘To The Beautiful You,’ but this is our first time acting together. He’s really nice so it was comfortable working with him, we also found that we have similar hobbies, so it felt like we were real siblings. As a joke, he was the male Kim Ji Won and I was the female Kang Ha Neul.”
