If you’re a hardcore Hallyu fan, have you ever stopped to think that all your favorite stars might be connected to each other through their shows? Just like The King: Eternal Monarch, there must be multiple parallel universes in K-drama where someone’s love rival might be another one’s sweetheart in a different series. Now that we’ve got your interest, here is our K-drama Relationship Map that might just help you connect the dots between our favourite characters!
- While Ji Eun-tak (Kim Go-eun) and oppa Tae-hee (Jung Hae-in) were nothing more than a childhood crush in Goblin, they end up as each other’s soulmate in Tune in for Love.
- Choi Young-do (Kim Woo-bin) might not get the girl in The Heirs, but at least someone gives him the love that he truly deserves in Uncontrollably Fond as Shin Joon-young.
- A rich man in all three worlds - Inheritors, The Legend of the Blue Sea, and The King: Eternal Monarch - Lee Min-ho definitely has a type and that’s a woman who can fight her own battles!
- What does a bar manager and an office secretary have in common? Park Seo-joon as their boss, and later their man, in Itaewon Class and What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim.
- Son Ye-jin’s characters have mastered the art of finding love in unlikely places: Yoon Jin-ah falls for a much younger man to the horror of her family in Something in The Rain, while South Korean chaebol Yoon Se-ri falls for a North Korean soldier in Crash Landing on You. There must be something about forbidden love that’s worth fighting for!
- Lee Seung-gi = murder solving genius with two different partners: Park Min-young in Busted: Season 2 and Go Hae-ri (Bae Suzy) in Vagabond.
- Imagine if strong Captain Ri Jeong-hyeok from Crash Landing on You and the smart and tech-savvy Yoo Jin-woo from Memories of the Alhambra teamed up - they would be undefeatable, but who would Jung Hae-Joo (Park Shin Hye) choose?
- Only Cheon Song-yi from My Love from the Star, Jeong Tae-eul (Kim Go-eun), and Ji Eun-tak (Kim Go-eun) know how it feels to fall for a man from another world.
