The love stories of the 4 couples below have made K-drama lovers cry their hearts out.
Recently, Korean filmmakers not only love sad endings but also often torture the main characters with the motifs of being “abused” mentally and physically, making the audience bawl. This may be because love stories that are both sweet and tormented will leave viewers with most emotions. The 4 Korean dramas below are some of those.
There is no need to argue, “Snowdrop” is probably the most controversial Korean drama at the moment. The story revolves around a forbidden love affair between Eun Young Ro (Jisoo), the daughter of the Director of the South Korean Agency for National Security Planning (ANSP), and Soo Ho (Jung Hae In), the son of the Head of United Front Dept., DPRK. Up to the present episode, the two have not had any romantic scenes other than the “gunfight” scenes and threatening to kill each other tragically.
2. The Red Sleeve
The bitter love story between the king and the court lady of “The Red Sleeve” made the audience cry a lot. Deok Im (Lee Se Young) originated as a lowly court lady, but because of her love for King Yi San (Lee Junho), she had to risk her life and sacrifice many things for his throne. They thought they had their happy ending when she became the king’s wife, but the two suddenly lost their child. Although the two may finally be together in the other world, the audience is still tormented and sympathized with their lives and stories.
3. Now, We Are Breaking Up
Young Eun (Song Hye Kyo) and Jae Guk (Jang Ki Yong) are probably the couple who like to “abuse” each other the most. From the beginning to the end of the drama, they do not have many romantic scenes. The reason why this couple’s love story is so hard to get probably stems from the fact that Young Eun falls in love with the younger brother of her deceased ex-lover. After deciding to get together, they did not receive support. In the end, the two decided to break up to give each other separate paths.
4. Our Beloved Summer
Before the current “heart-melting” scenes, Yeon Soo (Kim Da Mi) and Choi Woong (Choi Woo Sik) once made viewers “infuriated” because they kept tormenting each other even though they were both still in love. They kept hanging around each other andeven asking to be friends with their ex because they didn’t want to get hurt again. Although the couple has come together now, according to the preview in the latest episode, the two may once again have to face ups and downs.
