Love triangle stories have always had a distinct charm on the Korean small screen.
Love alarm 2
The love triangle of Jo Jo (Kim So Hyun) – Hye Young (Jung Ga Ram) and Sun Oh (Song Kang) continues to turn the audience upside down in season 2. At this time, all three characters mentioned above have grown up and have a life of their own.
The screenwriter of Love Alarm 2 really knows how to play with viewers’ hearts for focusing too much on Jo Jo and Sun Oh but in the end let Jo Jo choose Hye Young. The ending of the film has made viewers, especially those who support the character Sun Oh, angry.
On the other hand, the audience who loved the Jo Jo – Hye Young couple was extremely satisfied with the ending and did not forget to defend Jo Jo and her choice. All three characters in Love Alarm 2 have their own right and wrong and their own reasons. So no matter what the ending be, it will still be controversial.
Although Ju Gyeong also opened her heart to Seo Jun, she chose to stay with Su Ho in the end because her heart was always directed towards him. Ju Gyeong’s choice was also the talk of the town for a while.
However, most netizens just feel sorry for Seo Jun’s feelings, not debated as fiercely as in the case of Love Alarm 2. Many viewers shared that Ju Gyeong had a pretty reasonable choice and it must take her a lot of time to make a decision.
The King’s Affection
The love triangle in The King’s Affection is perhaps the most interesting of the four dramas on this list.
Supporting woman Ha Kyung (Jung Chae Yeon) even knows her fiance Lee Hwi (Park Eun Bin) is a girl, but she still loves without hesitation. Unfortunately, Ha Kyung’s love is not strong enough to defeat Rowoon‘s Jung Ji Woon.
Our Beloved Summer
The audience of Our Beloved Summer is afraid that the film will have a shocking plot twist, when it is discovered that the supporting male Ji Woong (Kim Sung Cheol) – a childhood best friend of the male lead Woong (Choi Woo Sik), also secretly loved the female lead Yeon Soo (Kim Da Mi) for a long time.
Right now, everything’s still fine, but if Ji Woong confesses his feelings, a lot of awkward situations will happen. Woong – Yeon Soo were born for each other but Ji Woong is also a good person and doesn’t deserve to suffer.
Hopefully the writer will have a reasonable way to handle this love triangle because no one wants any of them to get hurt.
The New Year is almost here and I’m just hoping that Our Beloved Summer will have the best ending, or at least be as good as True Beauty, and not cause a long-term controversy like Love Alarm 2.
