We wish we had friends like them in real life.
An ideal friend is someone who understands and stands by your side under every circumstance. We all deserve good friends who make us feel appreciated and respected. Here are 5 K-drama characters who are such good friends.
Lee Joon Ho – Prison Playbook
From bending the rules to saving life, to giving his friend motivation to pursue dreams, Lee Joon Ho has devoted all his heart to Kim Je Hyuk. It is difficult to find such a friend in real life.
Lee Ik Joon – Hospital Playlist
Ik Joon (Jo Jung Seok) is the embodiment of sunshine, dispelling all sadness and gloom. He is incredibly funny, the moodmake of any situation, and a reliable friend.
Thanks to his emotional maturity, he can easily understand anyone and give them the right advice.
Ik Joon is the type of guy who is willing to drive to your place at 3am if you say you need him. Watching Hospital Playlist, we are sure everyone would be jealous of the squad for having a friend like Ik Joon.
Kim Jung Hwan – Reply 1988
Kim Jung Hwan (Ryu Jun Yeol) is someone who can give unconditional love, even if that love leans more towards romance. Although he is a cold and strict person on the outside, he is deep inside, always thinking about his friends and family.
The way he accepts the fact that he loses the girl he likes his lover to his friend is endearing and what makes his character receive much love from viewers. Kim Jung Hwan is the type of friend that if you are lucky enough to have in your life, you should really treasure them.
Hwang Han Joo – Be Melodramatic
It would be lucky for someone to have a friend like Hwang Han Joo (Han Ji Eun). She never hesitates to stand up for someone, whether it’s a stranger or her best friend.
Han Joo’s maternal instinct is used everywhere, with her friends and it’s the cutest thing I’ve ever seen on a Korean TV series.
However, the best thing about having Han Joo as a friend is her outspoken nature. Honesty is key for a lasting relationship.
Cha Mi Jo – Thirty, Nine
Different from her seemingly sweet and soft exterior, her personality is that she never hides the truth, even if it is bitter or can hurt feelings.
Mi Jo can protect and fight hard for justice. She was never afraid to get hurt. She can fight anyone if they try to hurt her friends. It’s no coincidence that Cha Mi Jo is the “Mama Bear” of her group of friends and her friends really, really love her.
Above are the characters who, in my opinion, are the ideal best friends on Korean television. Which character do you like the most? Please share with me. And if you have great friends like the above, cherish them.
