It is agreeable that one thing we love about Kdramas would be the characters! They may often be fictitious, but we can’t help but cry, laugh, smile or even be angry at them. We sometimes even wish they were real people! (Who wouldn’t want a real-life Yoo Si Jin?)
Here's a list of six K-drama characters that we wish were our real-life besties!
- Kim Bok-joo (Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-joo)
Whether it’s eating eight plates of beef, singing her heart out at karaoke, or having a secret catchphrase (s-wag), Bok-joo (Lee Sung Kyung) always has your back! Known for her fun and loud personality, having Bok-joo as a best friend would mean endless amounts of laughter and never a boring time. Just like the K-drama, she always gives a helping hand to her friends in need. One can always rely on her for the support!
- Sunny (Goblin)
They may not be related, but Sunny (Yoo In-na) is known to be Eun-tak’s (Kim Go-eun) older sister figure! We all know Eun-tak has a part-time job at the famous fried chicken restaurant Sunny owns, which is how the duo got closer. Throughout the drama, we see Sunny’s caring and mature side towards Eun-tak as she figures out the problems that come her way. Always present with chicken and soju, Sunny would be that “parent” type of best friend we all need, especially when times get really tough!
- Go Dong-man (Fight for My Way)
Go Dong-man (Park Seo-joon) is a man of ambition and perseverance. Throughout the drama, we see Dong-man face numerous obstacles that hinder his dream of becoming a mixed martial arts fighter. Nevertheless, he serves as an inspiration to his friends in the drama to never give up. A best friend like Dong-man would always push you to be your very best. Even in the face of adversity, he would motivate and support you to work hard in achieving what you want.
- Yoo Eun-jae (Age of Youth)
She’s known for her quiet and shy personality, but when it comes to her friends, Yoo Eun-jae (Park Hye-soo) is ready to risk it all! We have seen in the drama, she goes to great lengths to do things for her friends. Even when Jung Ye-eun (Han Seung-yeon) was in trouble, Eun-jae didn’t think twice before risking her life to save her friend. Eun-jae as a best friend would mean having someone who would do anything for you, a rare characteristic in this world!
- Han Sung (Hwarang)
Han Sung (Kim Tae-hyung) is the adorable younger brother we all wish we had! In the drama, Han Sung was playful and child-like to his hyungs. But do not be fooled by his cute charms, Han Sung also has a courageous side to him. When in the situation to save his friends and brother, he bravely puts a foot forward! Having a best friend like Han Sung would mean an innocent, playful, and uplifting friendship.
- Lee Hye-yeong (Love Alarm)
Lastly, if there’s anyone as sweet as candy it surely is Hye-yeong (Jung Ga-ram). Always the backbone to Sun-oh (Song Kang), Hye-yeong is definitely a loyal friend. He is the epitome of lovely and kind, Hye-yeong would definitely sweep you off your feet. Good luck trying not to fall for his puppy-like charms, you might end up falling for your best friend! What a K-drama!
