Thanks for the unrealistic expectations on love!

If you're a habitual K-Drama binge-watcher who still doesn't have a boyfriend—well, have you realized why yet? It's obviously the fault of those romcom mini-series! Thanks to them, we now have such unrealistic romantic expectations.

But there's no use in crying over your love life (or lack thereof). Here, we've rounded up the five greatest K-Drama boyfriends of all time, so you can rewatch and relive their most swoon-worthy moments forever.

  1. Nam Joo Hyuk as Jung Joon Hyung in Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo

Let's face it: Jung Joon Hyung is serious #boyfriendgoals. He's sweet (the way he acts whenever he feels kilig is so cute!), funny (every time he teases Bok Joo), and caring (when he looked after his GF when she was sick/depressed). He likes it when a girl can eat, and he's willing to complete your relationship bucket list. Oh, and did we mention that he's really good-looking as well? ♥ No wonder we all love him!

Are you still reeling (in a good way, that is) from the news that he's marrying his DOTS co-star Song Hye Kyo IRL? Well, who could blame them—their chemistry was what made the show so successful. Anyway, Yoo Si Jin may be gone a lot due to his army position, but that doesn't mean he'll love you any less. He's protective and loyal—he'll literally come back to life for you, so don't worry about the LDR thing!

  1. Park Hyung Sik as Ahn Min Hyuk in Strong Woman Do Bong Soon

At first glance, one might think that Ahn Min Hyuk is a shallow, spoiled chaebol, but he's actually polite and gracious—not to mention intelligent enough to make a fortune without his wealthy father's help. Plus, despite the fact that most guys would get insecure about their gf having superhuman strength, he's respectful enough to acknowledge her power and to love her as she is without the stereotypical ~fragile masculinity~ lots of guys have these days. (Also: he's cute when he gets kilig. Aw.)

  1. Lee Jong Suk as Kang Meol in W: Two Worlds
http://addictingkdrama.tumblr.com/post/161674925522

He may have had a rough and mysterious past (his entire family was murdered and he was framed?!)—but he was strong enough to rise above it all. Although his desire to avenge his parents' death by killing their murderer seems a little dark, it just goes to show how much he cares about his loved ones, as well as the great lengths he'll go to just to save them. But while he may seem all-serious, he's actually a fan of grand, romantic (and, unlike some people, non-creepy) gestures: He'll literally leave his world for you.

  1. Park Seo Joon as Dong Man in Fight for My Way

We may have started this drama for DOTS's Kim Ji Won, but it's actually Park Seo Joon as formerly famed taekwando master Dong Man that made us stay. No matter how many "third-rate" scenarios life throws at him, Dong Man maintains a sense of optimism that can brighten up any girl's day. He's that guy bestie who makes sure that you don't cry (aw) and that you don't get hurt (even if it means punching your cheating ex in the process). All because he's been secretly in love with you all along! *swoon*

Okay, technically it's a Taiwanese movie, not a K-Drama, but so what? Hsu Tai You is the king of secretly-good bad boys. Sure, he tries to downplay every sweet move with sarcasm, but he's just as much a sucker for romance as we all are! Smart, handsome, and dashing—he's got it all, and it's thanks to him that we were kilig and moved to tears at the same time when watching the movie! ♥

PRIMO.

First. Pixie dust and paper cuts – these are the first things Wendy knew about Peter Pan. Aurora first met Prince Philip when she was sixteen. Learning how to ride a bike was also a first while I was growing up, but you are probably the first of too many. The first collection of dust and stars; maybe Luna will try to ask, who was your first? I might answer and tell her that it was you.

The first of too many stars in the sky. You are the first of too many fallen leaves during fall – and you will be the most anticipated snowflake as winter comes. A dark path that you can’t see without any light, hence, you were once the moon and there are the stars that shine so bright at night. Are we too early? Or we just really want to be ahead of time? Even in a glimpse, I would like to see the two of us connect as if we can reach the sky. There are other parts of the heavens you have never saw and other oceans you haven’t laid your feet onto – but the constellations will always wait for you. Close your eyes, love, close your eyes. Start counting backward: 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. Count backward until you see the twinkling lights that will guide you to the right path. To the right satellite; to the right person. A first.

There are many firsts – first love, first heartbreak, first sport you played, the first thing you do in the morning, the first thing you remember about the person in front of you. There are a lot. It’s actually up to us how we will consider something as a first. So, Primo, you are already a first of too many.
