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!

  1. Song Joong Ki as Captain Yoo Si Jin in Descendants of the Sun

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

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*

BONUS:

Darren Wang as Hsu Tai Yu in Our Times

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! ♥
