After many K-drama couples set our relationship goals so high this year, it's impossible to imagine that any new pairings can top our favorites. However, it is very possible in dramaland. This winter, South Korea is planning to bring K-drama fans a whole new set of pretend couples to shake up your bias list.

Below are seven couples that promise to win (and warm) our hearts during the cold winter months.

1. Gong Yoo and Kim Go Eun (Goblin- December 2, 2016)

Next month, this goblin (Gong Yoo) and young priestess (Kim) will be a supernatural couple who discover they are soulmates. Unfortunately, their magical union may be cut short with the goblin's untimely death . Can they cheat death and find a way to enjoy a long term relationship?  

2. Lee Dong Wook and Yoo In Na (Goblin)

Who knew the Angel of Death (Lee) and a chicken shop owner (Yoo) could have a sexy love story? These two promise a shocking tale as the grim reaper struggles with amnesia, while a human falls for him. 

3. Song Seung Hun and Lee Young Ae (Saimdang: Light's Diary - January 2017)

The two Hallyu stars play lovers in the Joseon dynasty. Their historical romance promises to be enhanced by the fact that she is legendary artist and he is an artist, musician and dancer who vows to love her forever.

4. Baek Jin Hee and Jung Kyung Ho (MBC's Missing 9 - January 2017)

Opposites attract in this couple's upcoming series that resembles Gilligan's Island and Lost. Viewers will watch a rude idol and an ordinary girl bond while being stranded on an island with several other people.

5. Yeon Woo Jin and Park Hye Soo (tvN's Introverted Boss - January 2017)

A cold and reserved boss is fated to love an outgoing employee with a introverted secret of her own. Opposites seem to attract, but these two may have more in common than they realize. 

6. Ji Sung and Kwon Yuri (SBS' Defendant - January 2017)

The star of this series will have to overcome alot to get his shot at love. Ji Sung plays a prosecutor with temporary amnesia. After being wrongly accused of a crime he didn't commit, he has to do whatever he can to prove his innocence and escape the death sentence placed on him. How will he and Yuri's loveline develop? Your guess is as good as mine! Ji Sung fans know he will deliver an amazing performance as always, so I'm sure their romance will be just as incredible as the story-line. Remember, she is his public defender.

7. Park Bo Young and Park Hyung Sik (JTBC's Strong Woman Do Bong Soon - February 2017)

Their story is suppose to be narrated from the lady's point of view. I'm assuming Bo Young and Hyung Sik's on-screen love story will probably unfold more like a fascinating book you can't put down rather than a typical K-drama. Plus, they already had great chemistry in their Elle Korea photo shoot this fall.

Which stunning pair is your favorite? Are there any additional couples you are anxious to see in the coming months?
