How many times have you thought, "I wonder how those celebrities met"? South Korean stars meet their significant others in a variety of ways. Some meet through friends, and others make a love connection because of work. The stars on this list were destined to meet each other during the course of their lifetime. Some of them lived happily ever after, but one couple had to pick up the pieces and start again. 

1. Lee Byung Hun and Lee Min Jung

The IRIS actor and Sly and Single Again actress met through acquaintances in 2006. However, his busy schedule and her budding career as an actress tore the two apart for five years before they rekindled their romance. They reconnected at an awards ceremony. Lee Byung Hun admitted that "Min Jung appeared in his dreams" during an interview on SBS's talk show Healing Camp.  

2.  Kim Woo Bin and model Yoo Ji Ahn

The Technicians actor met his beautiful girlfriend at a magazine photo shoot in 2011. The pair quickly bonded over their modeling careers, and their friendship blossomed into love. It's too bad they called it quits in January of 2014. Their hectic schedules made the two grow apart. 

3.  Ji Sung and Lee Bo Young

The Kill Me, Heal Me actor and the I Hear Your Voice actress met on the set of the 2004 SBS series Save The Last Dance For Me. Ji Sung confessed his feelings to Lee first and even asked her out for three months before she said "yes." 

Last year, she talked about her future hubby pursuing her on Healing Camp. "When I went out with my friends, Ji Sung said he would join us. That day, he wrote a note and put it in my bag. 'I like you' was written on it."

She rejected him because she didn't want to date an actor, but he promised to give up acting for her.  "I was tricked," she jokingly exclaimed.

4. Han Hye Jin and Ki Sung Yueng

Marriage was on the Jumong actress's and the soccer player's minds when they first met. They initially crossed paths at a charity sports event hosted in Vietnam in 2011. The spark was apparent during their second meeting, when Han co-hosted an episode of Healing Camp where Ki was a guest star. "If I had a girlfriend like Han, I'd marry her instantly," he said during the interview.

5.  Baek Ji Young and Jung Suk Won

The talented singer and the Creating Destiny actor met through mutual friends. Jung gushed about the chance meeting with his future wife to Arirang TV's Showbiz Korea in 2013. "It was very natural. There were mutual friends, and the people Ji Young knows, so we met by chance over meals and developed feelings for one another.... I never feel the age difference when we are together."  

They are too cute! I would have liked to see Kim Woo Bin and his lady find martial bliss like the others. Who else would you love to see on this list?
