K-drama couples without melodramatic misunderstandings and conflicts that make us tired

Watching the love story of these K-drama couples won’t give viewers a headache. 

The romance of K-drama couples can be overly dramatic sometimes. Misunderstandings, fights, breaks-up are often added to stir up drama in their stories. However, in recent years, K-dramas have cut down on unnecessarily exaggerated conflicts between couples. 

The following couples are prime examples, as they are built on pure trust and love. They may face obstacles with other things but their feelings for one another are very consistent. 

Song Joong Ki – Jeon Yeo Bin (Vincenzo)

In “Vincenzo”, Song Joong Ki and Jeon Yeo Bin’s characters are pushed towards each other by fate. They start out as colleagues, partners, before gradually developing romantic feelings.

Although Vincenzo has a mysterious identity and his actions are difficult to grasp, Hong Cha Young never doubts or hesitates to team up with him. Together, the two create a perfect team that makes the bad guys miserable.

The trust, respect and understanding these two have for each other is more solid than anything. There is nothing that can make them turn their backs on each other. This also explains how sparks naturally fly between them. 

There is no one who can deal with Hong Cha Young’s tough personality but Vincenzo and no one who can match well with Vincenzo like Hong Cha Young.  

Kim Seon Ho – Shin Min Ah (Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha)

In “Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha”, the dentist Yoon Hye Jin (Shin Min Ah) suddenly moves from the city to a seaside village. She has a hard time adapting to a new life at first, but thanks to chief Hong Du Sik (Kim Seon Ho), things quickly get easier for Yoon Hye Jin. 

Although the two initially have different mindsets and quarrel a lot, they never hate or misunderstand each other’s heart. When they get romantically involved, they even change to suit each other better. 

Hong Du Sik knows that his girlfriend is a stylish, modern city girl, so he is always the one who initiates romance between them. Of course, conflicts are inevitable, but the two always find a way to solve them instead of giving up on each other. Even when Du Sik’s past is brought to light, Hye Jin chooses to trust him and stay by his side. There is no misunderstanding or feelings being shaken. 

The story of Hye Jin and Du Suk is truly a healing one that makes viewers feel nothing but comfortable. 

Park Hyung Sik – Han Hyo Joo (Happiness)

Yoon Sae Bom (Han Hyo Joo) and Jung Yi Hyun (Park Hyung Sik) of “Happiness” are put in a more difficult situation than other couples because they have to deal with a zombie apocalypse while getting stuck in an apartment complex. 

Yoon Sae Bom and Jung Yi Hyun have to fight to survive and protect not only themselves but other people. Despite such a terrifying situation, the two never lose trust in each other. They fight side by side, trust and rely on each other.

Their love line is not the focus of the drama but their chemistry is excellent. A happy ending is definitely what they deserve. 

Ahn Hyo Seop – Kim Se Jeong (Business Proposal)

In “Business Proposal”, Kang Tae Moo (Ahn Hyo Seop) is a wealthy and powerful CEO, the son of a chaebol family, while Shin Ha Ri (Kim Se Jeong) is just an ordinary office worker from a middle-class family that sells fried chicken. 

They are two people from two completely different worlds who happen to cross paths and fall in love with each other. Although their story is the typical Cinderella – Prince Charming trope, it is much more peaceful and less melodramatic than oher “rich guy – poor girl” couples in K-dramas. 

Kang Tae Moo is not an unrealistically perfect guy, he also has vulnerability and weakness. Shin Ha Ri is poor but not weak and helpless. When faced with troubles, like when Kang Tae Moo’s grandpa is against their relationship, they don’t give up but stay determined to convince grandpa to change his mind. 

Lee Jong Suk – Yoona (Big Mouth)

Right at the beginning of “Big Mouth”, Park Chang Ho (Lee Jong Suk) is arrested. He tries to convince everyone he is innocent but no one listens. The only person who believes in him is his wife Go Mi Ho (Yoona).  Although the two often quarrel, Go Mi Ho even threatens Chang Ho of getting a divorce, their relationship is still strong and beautiful.

During Park Chang Ho’s time in jail, he encounters many incidents, but he still protects his wife from afar. Outside, Go Mi Ho also does everything she can to find evidence in order to clear up her husband’s name. They become the only support and hope for each other.

Unfortunately, after all they have gone through, they can’t be together in the end. Although they are physically separated for good, their minds are always connected.
