“Squid Game” Actor Wi Ha Joon Wants To Win The “Best Couple Award” But With An Unexpected Co-Star
When it comes to the Korean entertainment industry, there are events that fans always look forward to, and that is the annual award ceremonies. These events include the Mnet Asian Music Awards for K-Pop and various events for the K-Drama industry, including the annual KBS Drama Awards.
Yet, one person who has shared their excitement and has even thrown his hat into one of the categories already is Squid Game actor Wi Ha Joon!
The actor is currently promoting his latest K-Drama Bad and Crazy alongside Lee Dong Wook, where they play two very contrasting personalities who cross paths and change each other’s lives.
Despite these differences, fans have very quickly noticed that the friendship and interactions between these two characters are definitely epic. Many have even labeled them the next “Bromance” couple because of their amazing chemistry.
It seems like it isn’t just netizens who love the duo’s bromance. In a recent press conference, Wi Ha Joon shared his love and respect for his co-star. He even said he wants to win the Best Couple Award with Lee Dong Wook.
I would like to receive the ‘Best Couple Award’ with Dong Wook at the Baeksang Arts Awards. That’s really my wish. Our chemistry was that great.
— Wi Ha Joon
The Baeksang Arts Awards is an annual event that celebrates the achievements of actors and K-Dramas. Although it isn’t known for having a Best Couple award, it is one that fans love at other events.
The winners are normally a duo that gained love from fans for their amazing chemistry, and there is no denying that Wi Ha Joon and Lee Dong Wook have it in the bucket loads both on and off the screen.
Yet, it isn’t exclusive to just mixed gender. Over the years, many same-sex pairings have won the award for Best Couple. In 2010, Song Joong Ki and Yoo Ah In won the award at the KBS Drama Awards for their roles in the K-Drama Sungkyunkwan Scandal.
In 2015, Ji Sung and Park Seo Joon won the award for their chemistry in the K-Drama Kill Me, Heal Me as the characters Yo Na and Ri On. Ji Sung perfectly portrayed his teenage personality, who had a crush on Park Seo Joon’s character. They are still one of the most iconic K-Drama pairings.
Fans loved it so much that the duo won the Best Couple award at the 2015 MBC Drama Acting Awards. Both actors were definitely shocked, but even they shared their appreciation of how much fans loved their pairing.
With the bromance between Wi Ha Joon and Lee Dong Wook off the charts in the Bad and Crazy, there is no denying that netizens would love to see them take home the award for Best Couple!
