Forget the common tall guy and short girl K-drama couples, here are our favorite pairs where both of them are tall.
Plenty of K-drama couples are famous for their adorable major height difference where tall, “giant” actors stand alongside petite actresses. But in the cases of the following popular K-drama pairs, both the guy and the girl boast model-worthy height and body proportions, and they look just as heart-fluttering.
Lee Sung Kyung – Kim Young Dae (Sh**ting Stars)
“Sh**ting Stars”, an ongoing rom-com drama set against the backdrop of the entertainment industry, is led by a long-legged duo, Lee Sung Kyung and Kim Young Dae. Not only are they known as actors, both are also famous models with impressive heights and attractive auras. Lee Sung Kyung is 1m75 tall while Kim Young Dae is 1m85 tall. Standing side by side, the two flaunt an eye-catching visual combination and perfect physique chemistry.
Lee Sung Kyung – Nam Joo Hyuk (Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo) and Lee Sung Kyung – Ahn Hyo Seop (Dr. Romantic 2)
Perhaps because of her height, Lee Sung Kyung is often paired up with actors who are over 1m8 tall. In “Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo”, she starred as a couple with Nam Joo Hyuk, who is 1m88 and also started out in the industry as a model. In “Dr. Romantic 2”, she got a love line with Ahn Hyo Seop, who is well-known for his stunning physique with a height of 1m87. Besides having awesome physique and visual chemistry with Lee Sung Kyung, these two towering actors also have the best on-screen romantic tension with her among all of her dramas.
Jo In Sung – Gong Hyo Jin (It’s Okay, That’s Love)
Who says height difference is only cute between tall guys and short girls? Jo In Sung and Gong Hyo Jin beg to differ. Gong Hyo Jin is 1m73 and Jo In Sung is 1m87, making them 15cm apart. Their height, among other factors like visuals and acting, contributes to their sizzling chemistry and makes them look so good together in every frame of “It’s Okay, That’s Love”.
Lee Jong Suk – Lee Na Young (Romance Is A Bonus Book)
The love story between a younger man and an older woman in “Romance Is A Bonus Book” is another fan favorite when it comes to K-drama pairs with top-notch visual and physique chemistry. Manly and dashing model-turned-actor Lee Jong Suk, who is 1m86 tall, next to his noona Lee Na Young, who is 1m73 with a feminine and mature charm, is, without doubt, a swoon-worthy combination.
Kim Jung Hyun – Seo Ji Hye (Crash Landing On You)
The second lead couple of “Crash Landing On You” is another model-worthy pair with desirable heights. Seo Ji Hye is 1m70 tall, and Kim Jung Hyun is 1m83, so the height gap between them is just enough to make viewers’ hearts flutter in every scene where they stand close to one another.
Ahn Jae Hyun – Lee Da Hee (The Beauty Inside)
In “The Beauty Inside”, Lee Da Hee became a couple with younger male co-star Ahn Jae Hyun. Lee Da Hee is the tallest actress on this list. She is 1m76, while Ahn Jae Hyun is 1m86 tall. A height difference of 10cm, combined with a harmonious combination in terms of visual, aura, and acting, help the two make a great side couple in the drama.
