Here's a compilation of some of the best K-drama quotes about love-- some happy, some heartbreaking, some hard-hitting, some specific, and some all-encompassing. Prepare to sigh. A lot.
1. Kang Joon Hee - Answer Me 1997 - Episode 10
“The reason I like you? Because it’s you. Just you. That’s the only reason. I wish I knew. Then I could figure out how to stop liking you. If I can’t avoid it, I only want one thing. To stay by you as a friend, unchanged. Here’s to heartache. To love.”
2. Seo Yi Soo - A Gentleman's Dignity - Episode 12
“Men like you one day, and the next day, they change their mind. The problem is that they’re being honest both days.”
3. Jung Yu Jin - Winter Sonata - Episode 4
"If they are really in love, I don’t think that would matter so much…A house itself doesn’t really matter to the couple. To the couple who are in love, their heart would be their favorite home."
4. Joo Yeol Mae & Yoon Suk Hyun - I Need Romance 2012 - Episode 16
“At that moment, we both realized that the opposite word for love isn’t hate or dislike. The opposite word for love is I loved you. It’s the past tense.”
5. Tae Gong Sil - The Master's Sun - Episode 17

6. Cha Ok Gyun - Flower Boy Ramen Shop - Episode 9
Chi Soo: “This is mother? How can that be? A song is a song. A promise is a promise. How can it be something else?”
Ok Gyun: “When you love a woman…when you love a woman, she becomes a drink. She becomes the moon. She becomes the song. Then she turns into my world.”
Chi Soo: “What are you talking about?”
Ok Gyun: “You will understand when you meet a woman like that.”
7. "Trash" - Answer Me 1994 - Episode 5
“When you have to tell your loved ones a hard truth…There’s only one thing you need to focus on. More than any long explanation, and more than any beautiful words…The look of love in your eyes…That alone will suffice."
8. Hyun Jin Heon - My Lovely Sam Soon - Episode 13
Hee Jin: "She’s sparkling right now…But after time passes…It’s all the same. She might sparkle right now, but after time passes…She’ll fade away too. Like us… Jin-heon…You’ll still go to her knowing that?"
Jin Heon: "People know they’re going to die but live anyways."
9. Joo Wan - I Need Romance 3 - Episode 11
“Date someone who appreciates how worthy you are. I don’t care if that person isn’t me. A man who appreciates how precious you are. A man who’s concerned about whether or not you’re feeling cold. A man who can recognize what it is that you need.”
10. Lee Gak - Rooftop Prince - Episode 12
“Do you know how much I’ve been searching for you? You left a letter, and you couldn’t be reached! Are you trying to give me a heart attack? Why are you making me this way? Why have you made me this way? My heart has felt broken all day. It was pounding from frustration. It felt like it was going to burst! I couldn’t recognize myself from the frustration. I thought I was going to go crazy all day! Even though I screamed and yelled, I didn’t feel any relief! But now that I’ve seen your face, I get it. I…I was missing you all day. I like you.”
Well, I'm all "aww"ed out for now, but of course almost every drama has at least one quote that gets our hearts going "du geum du geum" (Greatest Love, anyone?). What are some of your favorites?
