As the end of the year approaches, K-drama schedules for 2023 are being unveiled, and so many couples are already raking up extremely high expectations.
Many K-dramas planned for 2023 are already beginning production or have announced their cast members, raising expectations for the combinations and chemistry that will blossom. And below are 5 K-drama couples that are already garnering quite the attention for 2023.
Lee Min Ho – Gong Hyo Jin
Set in a space station, “Ask The Stars” will depict a romantic tale between a space visitor and an astronaut, and is expected to become a blockbuster on the K-drama scenes with its cast lineup and production.
Park Seo Joon – Han So Hee
With the combination of Park Seo Joon and Han So Hee, “Gyeongseong Creature” is already raking up quite the attention for its broadcast, which is expected to be in 2023. With gorgeous visuals and outstanding talent, this will obviously be another “golden couple” of the K-drama world.
While “Gyeongseong Creature” is promoted as a mystery and action drama, the love line between Park Seo Joon and Han So Hee will still play a crucial role, and that alone is already enough to become a hot topic.
Im Yoona – Lee Jun Ho
Initially debuted as Kpop idols, both Im Yoona and Lee Jun Ho have built up quite a repetoire in the acting world, with Yoona recently starring in “Big Mouth”, and Jun Ho achieving a big success with “The Red Sleeve”.
In 2023, this couple will co-star in “King The Land”, which revolves around a wealthy hotel owner and a dedicated employee from the same establishment. While the male lead abhors fake smiles, the female lead always has to plaster on a “customer service” face, making them on completely different spectrums. Nevertheless, opposite attracts, and together, they create a sincere and understanding relationship. While there are no still cuts of the couple thus far, Yoona and Lee Jun Ho’s combination at a year-end festival is already lethal enough to raise expectations for “King The Land”.
Lee Joon Gi and Shin Se Kyung
Lee Joon Gi and Shin Se Kyung is an interesting combination for the next anticipated series, “Arthdal Chronicles” season 2. They will take over the roles previously portrayed by Song Joong Ki and Kim Ji Won. Lee Joon Gi plays Eunseom in his adult years while Shin Se Kyung plays Tanya. This major change manages to pique the interest of viewers and builds considerable anticipation of how the sequel to his big-budget drama will play out.
