Bittersweet cohabitation situations in Korean dramas: A couple even get married before falling in love

In Korean dramas, there are many tragicomedy situations when couples move to live together.

What if lovers live under the same roof? Korean scriptwriters have been extremely delicate when skillfully integrating this detail into their works. Countless funny and sweet situations with this detail have happened, helping the audience easily feel the taste of the couple’s love.

1. The Legend Of The Blue Sea

In “The Legend Of The Blue Sea“, after leaving the sea, the mermaid Shim Chung (Jun Ji Hyun) accidentally met Heo Joon Jae (Lee Min Ho) and was greatly helped out by this guy. Joon Jae also shares his home with Shim Chung, which helps them realize the predestined relationship from their previous life.

2. My Roommate Is A Gumiho

In “My Roommate Is A Gumiho“, Shin Woo Yeo (Jang Ki Yong), a 999-year-old fox, only has one more year until fully becoming a human. But ironically, his pearl was swallowed by the student Lee Dam (Hyeri). As an excuse to find a way to get the pearl back, Shin Woo Yeo asked Lee Dam to come live with him. However, the two opposite lifestyles between the “elderly” fox and the 22-year-old student have brought countless troubles. Gradually, Shin Woo Yeo was attracted to Lee Dam without knowing it.

3. Still 17

After 13 years in a coma due to a tragic accident, the female lead Woo Seo Ri (Shin Hye Sun) wakes up and returns to the old house where she used to live. However, the house has a new owner, Woo Jin (Yang Se Jong), who is annoyed with her sudden appearance. But poor Seo Ri had nowhere to go so Woo Jin let her stay, from which the lovely and equally humorous love story of the “Still 17“’s couple blossomed.

4. The Tale Of Nokdu

The two in “The Tale Of Nokdu” also became a couple after accidentally living under the same roof. In order to find out the reason his family had to hide for many years, the male lead Nokdu (Jang Dong Yoon) disguised himself as a woman and infiltrated the widow village – where the female lead Dong Joo (Kim So Hyun) lived. After living together for a while, Dong Joo discovered Nokdu’s disguise and helped him hide the secret.

5. Goblin

The meeting of the goblin Kim Shin (Gong Yoo) and the young bride Ji Eun Tak (Kim Go Eun) creates a love story that is both tragic and humorous in “Goblin“. Eun Tak moves into Kim Shin’s house, which gives her more joy and love than her relatives and also witnesses the happiness and sadness in the love between Eun Tak and Kim Shin.

6. Happiness

The “Happiness”’s couple is probably the most confusing case when they decide to become husband and wife and move in together in exchange for a house. As two close friends for many years, Yi Hyun (Park Hyung Sik) supports Sae Bom (Han Hyo Joo) even though she didn’t realize it. After a period of cohabiting and facing many difficulties, they had a beautiful ending and became real husband and wife.
