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.
- 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! ♥
- 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!
- 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!
- 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.
- 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."

Outdoors Danielle Flestado @artdkf | May 1, 2020 "I miss the outside world. The last time I went outside of our house was on my birthday. We just bought coffee across our village and went back home immediately. This painting made me feel that I'm in a field, just appreciating the beauty of God's creation. Can you imagine the green grass and pink flowers?"
When everything around you suddenly turns dark, the first thing we'd prolly do, as humans, is to find and grab anything that is closest and nearest to us. We'll hold onto them for as long as we can, trying to collect ourselves and gather courage to adjust our eyesights to the pitch black environment that's consuming us minute by minute. And then you'd hear nothing. Your sense of hearing would somehow go off after not seeing anything for quite awhile. You'll let loose. Cry. Panic. You'll be exhausted for fighting your way out. Then just when you're about to stop and give up, you're no longer afraid. There's only this deafening silence and pithole of darkness that's gonna eat you up alive. And surprisingly, you'll make a home out of it.
You'll make a home out of the darkness that when a ray of light suddenly hits you, you'll try to avoid it. You'll try to cover your eyes. You'll try to cover your ears from the voices trying to help you get out of it. You'll try to hide because your mind and body will go against your will to come out and live. Because the darkness that used to scare you, now comforts you in a way you thought has helped you survived life. And you'll try to live. Day by day. In the darkness. Not knowing where to go. Not knowing where to start. Not knowing who is with you. You will try to live until the darkness that once surrounds you is now within you. And everyday, it's gonna be a cycle of subtle torture. But let me tell you a secret. The darkness won't make you whole.
You'll be broken. And in those hair-like cracks, the light will stubbornly fight its way through until it warms you up. Until you realize to check the switch and turn it on. Until you allow other people to help you find your way back in the light. Until you realize you're ready to live in light again. There's a light at the end of this long and dreading tunnel. The only question that matters: will you let them in?
I always thought of life, like a bead where each piece makes it worth sewing together with other piece of beads to make a stronger bond and to create a beautiful result. Today, how do we bond well with different people especially this difficult time? As this day challenges us to a new normal, may we continue to bead along positively with our life.
