While Go Kyung Pyo was only the second male lead Go Jung Won in “Don’t Dare to Dream”, his relationship with the female lead Pyo Na Ri portrayed by Gong Hyo Jin was no less intriguing to that of the main couple. He and the male lead Lee Hwa Shin played by Jo Jung Suk do their best to pursue the female lead and win over her heart. While Go Jung Won was able to be with the female lead, it was only for a short while.

He fell in love at first sight and treated her nicely with all his heart. When their relationship came to an end, only the female lead was able to move on. On the contrary the second lead was left in the past feeling regretful for their relationship.

In “Encounter”, Jang Seung Jo played Jung Woo Seok, husband to the leading female character Cha Soo Hyun (Song Hye Kyo) in an arranged marriage. The pair might look content on the outside but were actually cold to each other as Soo Hyun was not in love with her husband. As the story progressed, the audience could understand more fully the feelings Jung Woo Seok had for his wife, a love at first sight.

Knowing that his wife did not feel the same, Woo Seok filed for a divorce and made up an affair to protect her. Cha Soo Hyun soon found her happiness and freedom. Yet it was her husband that felt like an outsider to her happiness. 

Jang Man Wol and Chung Myung (Hotel Del Luna)

Speaking of former lovers, Jang Man Wol (IU) and Chung Myung (Lee Do Hyun) in “Hotel Del Luna” was one that was hard to forget. In the first place, it was Chung Myung that Jang Man Wol attained a life of immortality and was inevitably bound to the Hotel Del Luna. Thousand years ago, Man Wol made a serious mistake out of love and revenge while Chung Myung became a firefly, quietly watching over her footsteps. 

Their love eventually came to an end as Chung Myung crossed to the other side and Man Wol got rid of her eternal hate and found a new one with Goo Chan Sung. Nevertheless, Man Wol and Chung Myung’s star-crossed love story was one to remember. 

Park Sae Royi and Oh Soo Ah (Itaewon Class)

Park Seo Joon

Oh Soo Ah (Kwon Nara) was Park Sae Royi (Park Seo Joon)’s first love that was filled with highschool sweetness and bitter ending. They fell deeply in love but a huge gap in worldview pushed them apart, pitting Soo Ah as the enemy of Sae Royi. Luckily, as the story unfolded, Soo Ah was not as bad as we thought she had been and the former couple grew to be friends again.

Koo Ryeon and Park Joong Gil (Tomorrow)

Lee Soo Hyuk

While the modern strings that connect the characters in “Tomorrow” did not have any romantic links, there were abundant regrets for an ill-fated past-life love story between Koo Ryeon (Kim Hee Sun) and Park Joong Gil (Lee Soo Hyuk). In their former life, Koo Ryeon and Park Joong Gil were husband and wife. Yet it was the injustice of the past that divided them forever.

Chun Ji Hoon (Namgoong Min) and Lee Joo Young (Lee Chung Ah)’s relationship in “One Dollar Lawyer” was a lingering regret for many watchers. The two started as opponents. They made a bet for the loser of the case to pay for a round of drinks. It was then their romantic feelings started to bloom. When Ji Hoon was at his lows, only Joo Young was by his side to sympathize and motivate each other. It broke many to see the couple separated from each other because of Joo Young’s accident when the couple was so close to marriage.
