Our relationship goals became impossible to reach thanks to the gorgeous K-drama couples who set the bar so high. Their electric on-screen chemistry even made ratings soar in their home country or online. I think 2017 will shape up quite nicely for the following TV couples who popularity literally skyrocketed this year because of their pairing. 

1. Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Gyo

After starring as a soldier and doctor who were obviously love struck in Descendants of the Sun, ratings in South Korea soared into the 40% range. This pair has been bombarded with dating rumors because viewers loved their on-screen chemistry that much. 


2. Park Bo Gum and Kim Yoo Jung

On November 22, you will be able to experience the magic South Korea witnessed in Moonlight Drawn By The Clouds. The captivating love story between a Crown Prince and a commoner is quickly becoming a Hallyu classic.The young stars on-screen chemistry stunned viewers so much that the series enjoyed over 20% rating for several episodes and it easily beat Scarlet Heart: Ryeo every week in their home country. 


3. Park Shin Hye and Kim Rae Won

Our summer love was Doctor Crush, and we are still missing them! The senior and junior surgeons worked hard to save lives each week, and they ended up falling madly in love along the way. Ratings remained stellar each week in South Korea and abroad.  


4. Seo Kang Joon and Kim Go Eun 

Even though Kim's Cheese in the Trap character was destined to be with Park Hae Jin. Seo stole the show with his numerous scenes and impassioned acting. The audience became so attached to the Hong Seol/ In Ho couple the main stars' ending was left ambiguous. I wonder if her on-screen chemistry with Gong Yoo in Goblin will surpass this incredible Cheese in the Trap one. 


5. IU and Lee Joon Ki 

Scarlet Heart:Ryeo's global ratings were phenomenal! It soared into the billions in China alone. Hae Soo and Wang So's timeless love story captivated so many we are all begging for a season two. Who doesn't want to see the pair in the present day?


6. Yoona and Ji Chang Wook

The K2 is making us all wish Anna and Jeha were real! They broke their own cable viewership ratings goal by surpassing 5%. Each week we watched Jeha risked his life to protect Anna, and a couple times he was pretty much knocking on death's doorstep. If that isn't true love, I don't know what is! 

Which stars do you want to see couple up again in another popular production?
