9 Unique Ways Korean Celebrities Met Their Significant Others

Their love stories are like no other!

Some couples meet through friends, others may meet by chance, and others still might have met through work. But while each person’s love story is completely different, these 9 couples met and fell in love in some of the most amazing and unique ways out there!


1. Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo whose love was written in the stars

Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo played the perfect match in Descendants of the Sun. While fans wished that they would become a couple in real life, it wasn’t until a trip to Bali that rumors really began to fly. Shortly after that, the two admitted they were dating and then the Song-Song couple surprised everyone once again when they made a surprise wedding announcement.


Fans were sure that their relationship was already perfect as it was but fell even harder for this couple when Song Hye Kyo wrote a letter explaining that the two fell in love because of their similar values, beliefs, and personalities.

Here’s When Song Hye Kyo First Realized She Was IN LOVE With Song Joong Ki


And as we all know, the couple was married in 2017!

Sadly, their marriage came to an end as they decided on a divorce earlier in the summer.


2. Eugene (S.E.S) and Ki Tae Young created their own destiny

You might think Ki Tae Young and Eugene fell for each other at first sight since the two are known for their exceptional visuals!


That, however, wasn’t how it happened. In fact, Ki Tae Young didn’t even know who Eugene was when they started filming Creating Destiny together! While the two weren’t close in the beginning, rumors began swirling that they were secretly dating and those rumors actually pulled them closer. They began interacting more and more and by the end of filming Ki Tae Young had fallen for Eugene.


The two married in 2011 and now have an adorable family together.


3. Lee Chun Hee knew Jeon Hye Jin was the one for him because she shared his dream… car!

Although there is a nine-year age difference between Lee Chun Hee and Jeon Hye Jin, it’s never made a difference to this couple. The two met on the set of Smile, You and began dating around 2009. The two married in 2011 and have started their own family. But the most interesting part of their relationship is the fact that Lee Chun Hee once confessed that he fell for his beautiful wife when she drove up in a Volkswagen Golf GTI which had always been his dream car!


4. Im Sang Hyo’s first-hand experience with the city of love

Everyone knows that Paris is the city of love so it’s fitting that Im Sang Hyo found the love of her life in the French city. The model turned actress met her husband in 2004 while on a trip with Jang Yoon Joo and Hong Jin Kyung. A year later, and the two of them got married.


5. Ji Sung and Lee Bo Young’s celebrity barrier

While Ji Sung and Lee Bo Young first met on the set of Save the Last Dance for Me in 2004, it wouldn’t be until 2007 that these two stars would reconnect. The couple, however, didn’t quite get the fairytale story that K-Drama couples normally do.


First Ji Sung had to overcome the barrier of being a celebrity. Lee Bo Young once admitted that Ji Sung had to ask her out several times before she agreed because she didn’t want to date a celebrity. It wasn’t until he told her that he would give up acting that she agreed to go on a date with him. Then the two had to overcome all sorts of rumors. For every year that the two were together, a new rumor would emerge that the two had split.


Eventually, those rumors were put to rest when the couple announced their marriage plans in 2013 and a few months later officially tied the knot. Now the couple has a sweet daughter together!


6. Ahn Jae Hyun and Goo Hye Sun’s beautiful bouquet

Ahn Jae Hyun and Goo Hye Sun were co-stars in the hit vampire medical drama Blood. Their romance on screen soon blossomed in real life and the two were confirmed dating in 2015.


While their romance was already making K-Drama lovers wishes come true, when Ahn Jae Hyun proposed to Goo Hye Sun with a trunk full of flowers made everyone’s heart melted. The couple officially tied the knot a year later and have been happily married ever since!

Unfortunately, not all marriages have happy endings, as the two are currently embroiled in a messy divorce scandal, involving many personal details of their private life being revealed to the public.


7. Shin Joo Ah and Saraut Rachanacun’s perfect vacation

While on vacation with her friends and family, Shin Joo Ah met Thai millionaire Saraut Rachanacun. Despite a slight language barrier, the two fell for each other and ended up getting married in July 2014. Now everyone knows about their whirlwind romance thanks to Shin Joo Ah’s return to Korean television!


8. Jang Dong Gun and Go So Young dinner date

The Love Wind Love Song co-stars fell for each other immediately although not in a romantic way! Because of their similar personalities, Jand Dong Gun and Go So Young became best friends and could often be found hanging out together when their busy schedules allowed.


It wasn’t until a few years into their friendship that sparks between these two started to fly. They met up in Los Angeles for dinner and soon after the two began dating. A year later, in 2010, the couple married each other and have since started a family.


9. Im Hyo Sung always knew Shoo (S.E.S) was the one for him

Eugene isn’t the only S.E.S member to have an interesting romance story. During an episode of Roommate 2, Im Hyo Sung revealed that he had never really been a fan of S.E.S but he had been a huge fan of Shoo. In fact, he even confessed that she was his motivation to becoming a professional basketball player and that he kept a picture of her in the locker room.


While he had always told himself he would marry her one day, the two first became friends after the two met through close friends. And although Shoo first turned him down when he asked her out, the two eventually started dating and the rest is history! Now the couple is happily married with three sweet children!
