K-drama actors may be more attractive, richer and lead more exciting lives than the average person but they have to work at their relationships just like everyone else. Here are some of the things k-drama couples do to keep their relationship strong.
Find time for each other.
Actress Kim Tae Hee and her boyfriend Rain both have busy schedules. They left Korea to attend the 17 Shanghai International Film Festival a day apart. She will be spending time in China filming “Wang Xizhi, in which she plays the wife of a calligrapher. He recently released an album and stars in “The Prince” with Bruce Willis. But they see each other when they can. While he was in Hollywood discussing future film projects, they went to Six Flags amusement park. On June 16, they met for barbecue at a Gangnam restaurant.
Laugh and get silly together.
Fans only recently found out that Lee Jin Wook and Gong Hyo Jin were dating. An interviewer asked him if he likes to make her laugh and he said he did.
Having fun together is important. Epik High singer Tablo and his wife actress Kang Hye Jung like to sing karaoke together.
Surprise each other.
When Jun Ji Hyun was dating her future husband businessman Choi Joon Hyuk, he surprised her with a trip that also turned out to be a proposal.
“One evening, he said we were going somewhere and told me to come with my passport,” said the actress. “I followed him; we ended up at the airport, and we immediately left for Japan. In Japan, he asked whether I would marry him along with giving me a ring.”
Remember to make small romantic gestures.
Actors Yoo Ji Tae and Kim Hyo Jin met as models, dated and married. Despite the fact that they share so many interests, including films, books and bike riding, he still remembers to make romantic gestures. Neither of them is impressed by expensive gifts. She’s happier when he remembers anniversaries or bakes her a cake.
I think my husband is my soul mate,” she said.
Han Ga In makes special dishes for her husband actor Yun Jung Hoon when he is busy and he loves to photograph her because he says she is so pretty.
And k-drama star couples have to do one thing most people don’t. That’s look the other way when their mate is kissing another attractive actor.
“In the past we watched each other’s work,” said Yun Jung Hoon of his wife. “But then it became uncomfortable, so we stopped. I did the housework when it was on.”
Ji Sung is an exception to this common practice of not watching his wife’s drama kisses. He even said watching his wife Lee Bo Young kiss Lee Jong Suk made his heart flutter.
