5 Korean Celebrity Best Friends That We Absolutely Love

Don't you just love friendships? We know we do!

Friends make life easier for us. They stand by us through good times and bad times. They can be brutally honest with us and help us grow in the process. And when they don't know the right things to say? They stay by our side, anyway.

This is the same with celebrities, too. Although they appear strong and so put together in front of the cameras, they are in need of a strong support system, too—like friends. This week, we're putting our focus on these Korean celebrities' friendships that inspire all of us to pursue friendships that will last a lifetime. Take a look at five of the K-celeb friendships we adore below now.

  1. Lee Jong Suk and Kim Woo Bin

These two! Jong Suk and Woo Bin have known each other for years, and they got closer when they both worked on School 2013. How close are they? Well, during Jong Suk's fan meeting in Seoul in 2014, Woo Bin made a surprise appearance and his friend was deeply moved by his gesture that he cried. Omo! ♥

  1. Song Joong Ki and Lee Kwang Soo

These two have supported each other so much ever since they first met and became friends while working on Running Man. Not only do they have good words to say about each other, they also show each other some lovin' by making cameo appearances on their projects.

Remember when Kwang Soo appeared on Descendants of the Sun and Joong Ki on The Sound of Your Heart? Plus, who'd ever forget that time when Joong Ki appeared in Kwang Soo's brother's wedding because his friend couldn't make it? Aww! 

  1. IU and Suzy

The Dream High co-stars are so close that they're almost inseparable. If not for their busy schedules, we'll surely be seeing them together 24/7. In an interview on MBC, IU likened her friendship with Suzy to magnets "because we stick together and drag each other around." Huhu, so cute!

  1. Jun Ji Hyun and Lee Young Ae

After meeting for the first time at a shoot for a commercial, Ji Hyun and Young Ae have become really close. Their friendship has gotten so deep that Young Ae revealed she's the only actress she invited for her children's first birthday parties.

Ji Hyun, on the other hand, revealed in an interview that she finds comfort just by talking to her friend. "She is quite different from many people. She gives a lot of advice on life. I ask her for help when I need it and it helps me just by talking to her," she said. 

  1. Yoon Eun Hye and Son Ye Jin

These two low-key actresses have been friends for as long as we can remember. Together with Song Yoon Ah, these two play a lot together and have fun on holidays when they're not so busy anymore. And in an interview, Ye Jin even mentioned that she misses the Coffee Prince actress a lot already, saying, "I'm so sad Yoon Eun Hye and I haven't played for so long."

A Simple Learner Who's a Great Pretender

Maybe I'm just a learner, not a weirdo. A learner that knows how to listen and pretend. A simple learner who's a great pretender. Pretending to be slightly dumb enough not to be judged and criticized by those who do not appreciate my existence. We surround ourselves with people who's levels are either beyond or below our intellectual behavior, because as for reality, people may use you either for their success or your downfall. Since then, people tend to judge someone who has an intellect with things they shouldn't be. Making them a criticizer, and most of all, calling them weird.

Honestly, I'm one of this "weirdo" who actually loves to learn things, and for the record, I'm bullied and stressed out for making myself not to learn more and go with the flow to dumbness I had. Have you ever feel being assigned to some task where you know every process to make it easier and faster to finish but turns out to hesitate to voice out because some of your mates put themselves in charge. There are times where I know what to do, what to say, or how to react, but kept myself silent and pretend not to know anything that may help us. Maybe it's a good thing to just go with their ideas and learn from their perspectives, but sometimes you can't control it and says something, and once again called to be a weirdo and let you finish the work by yourself.

It's annoying that you only know one process yet they gave you the whole work and let you finish it by yourself because they insist that "MAGALING KA DIBA?". It's not your fault being an intellectual person, knowing such things that may help you to pursue your dreams, and have the basic knowledge about something. You don't need to know everything, just the basics. And as for those people who do not appreciate your existence, let them be and continue what's the best for you. In some cases, you'll be annoyed by this but most of the time you'll be thankful for it. Not for now but maybe later. Just be yourself either a weirdo, a great pretender, or a simple learner, and always remember to lower your voice and behavior because no one loves that.

Just be a great pretender not to hear any runts and be a good learner that appreciates everything. It's out of nowhere thoughts of mine, but simply I leave you this my favorite life quotation; "Don't introduce yourself, Let your success introduce you"
