7 Of The Most Precious Korean Celeb Friendships

From bonds born out of starring together in dramas to adorable friendships between actors and idols.

Aside from onscreen chemistry and bonds, fans love to see Korean celebs interact with one another IRL. While friendships between celebrities aren't an unfamiliar concept, there are a handful of celebrity connections that fans would be surprised to know of. From bonds born out of starring together in dramas to adorable friendships between actors and idols, here are a few of the most precious K-celeb relationships:

Lee Dong Wook and Gong Yoo

The two Hallyu stars are best known for their incredible onscreen chemistry when they starred together in Goblin. Like many co-stars, Lee Dong Wook and Gong Yoo have also developed a close bond and continued to support each other even after the show.

When Lee Dong Wook hosted his first talk show in 2019, he invited over Gong Yoo to make an appearance as his first guest and even got to recreate their *iconic* scene from Goblin.

Park Seo Joon and the Wooga Squad

One of the most notable celebrity friendships in the SK showbiz industry would probably be the Wooga Squad led by Park Seo Joon. The squad is basically the Hwarang gang plus other co-stars and friends of Park Seo Joon.

Officially, the members are PSJ's Hwarang co-stars BTS' V and Park Hyung Sik, Parasite and Fight For My Way co-star Choi Woo Shik, as well as PSJ's musician friend Peakboy.


They would often hang out together and show support for each other's professional projects on their social media accounts.

Kim Go Eun and Jung Ryeo Won

The My Name Is Kim Sam Soon star has many notable celebrity friends, but not many may know of her friendship with Kim Go Eun. In 2019, the two went to Coachella together where they also showed support for fellow Chanel muse Jennie of Blackpink, who was part of last year's lineup of performers.



IU and Kim Soo Hyun

IU and Kim Soo Hyun go way back. They starred in the 2011 drama Dream High and again in the 2015 drama The Producers. 

Kim Soo Hyun even made a notable cameo in IU's latest K-drama Hotel del Luna and even visited the set.

They also send each other food trucks as a way to show support for their individual projects.


Super Junior's Heechul and Girls' Generation's Taeyeon

Kim Heechul of Super Junior and Kim Taeyeon of Girls' Generation share a supportive bond with one another. Aside from being labelmates, they would often give each other emotional support as both are idols from popular K-pop groups.


Heechul once gave Taeyeon a thoughtful real talk about the idol life which brought her to tears. Most recently, Heechul opened up to Taeyeon about going public with his relationship with TWICE's Momo.

Lee Min Ho and Woo Do Hwan

The King: Eternal Monarch co-stars are practically besties in the drama. If you're not busy getting kilig over Lee Min Ho and Kim Go Eun's chemistry, you'll probably be admiring the bromance between these two. But outside of the show, LMH and Woo Do Hwan have also developed a precious bond. 


Just recently, the two posted about their adorable friendship on their own Instagram accounts, where Lee Min Ho showed support for Woo Do Hwan who is set to enlist for his mandatory military service in July 2020. 

Yeo Jin Goo and BTS’ Jungkook

Yeo Jin Goo was a popular child actor when he was young and most recently, he starred alongside IU in Hotel del Luna. Not many may know of his friendship with BTS member Jungkook, but both are '97 liners (born in 1997), which is one of the reasons why they formed a bond. Jungkook once sent a food truck for Yeo Jin Goo when he was filming for Hotel del Luna.


Yeo Jin Goo also sent one for Jungkook during a concert to show his support. So cute!

They say time heals all wounds, but it has been ages - is heartbreak exempted?

I have forgotten when was the last time we shared a smile - the last time when I saw the glow in your eyes and the last time when you whispered an I love you to me. I have forgotten when, but here I am - writing to you again.

I do not know if you will read this or you will just add this one to my proses and poems that you left unread, but you see, I am still hoping. I am mailing the pain of us to the gods out there - hoping they can take the pain away. I should have gotten over you, but instead of forgetting and accepting our ending, I am writing about us in tissue sheets, carving about us on trees, telling about us on the back of my journals, hoping that a thousand or a million write ups about us, can make me forget about what happened.

I am writing, waiting for the point where I can no longer write anymore, for I have none to tell - but when? I have nothing in me anymore, but the memories of us - and no matter how hard I try put those to its own grave, the memories grow back like lilies in the swamp - painful and beautiful at the same time.

No matter how hard I try to silence those and put it at the back of my mind, those ring back, playing like the favorite song we used to listen. They say heartbreaks turn into poetry and that is what happening to us - but poetry should be dulcet and dreamy, why does ours sound like pain and agony? They say time heals all wounds, but it has been ages - is heartbreak exempted? Darling, I guess not.

Anne Luna Just now

This is a drawing and a poem I’ve made for a summer love. Our time together was short-lived but the feelings were not.

“God’s Gift”

On a platform we stand

Faces seen all in a blur

Relentless searching led by a spur

To find someone, to feel something

Aren’t we fools to waste away time?

To look for one man’s treasure

Somewhere as ephemeral, as fragile

As a bond built in crime

But aren’t we just like every weary heart?

Hoping for an oasis

In the midst of the desert

Wanting to quench our thirst

Aren’t we all like frosted windows

Of old and battered houses on winter?

Wishing for the sun to give us warmth

To melt the facade so we can show what the inside is made

Aren’t we maven pretenders?

A Casanova? A Temptress? Who made us this way?

A sly fox? A ruthless hunter?

Let down the walls, It’ll be okay

Rushed for a hug, now no hesitating

Engulfed by a sense of bliss or was it longing? Eyes wide-open,

Stepping on a quicksand I embraced the fall into the deep end

Gazed at you lying there unaware With you, found something rare I swear

Realization dawning as loud as a thunder

As the Beating of your heart put me into a deep slumber

Waking up from this reverie

Truth slapped me back to reality

Two worlds so different, now I see If only I could I’d be anything and anyone you need me to be I’m the ludicrous clown, you see

Thought if I ruin it first I’d be free

From the doubts brought by my own insecurity I was so wrong,

What a tragicomedy Brought by the month of April

We rushed the ticking of clock to May Hands interlocked

Weaved skin to skin on a rainy day But when June came to say hello, all went dark grey

What was once there ceases to exist Like the wilting of a flower

Once so beautiful, so full of life Now turned into dust by death’s kiss

Unbounded joy brought by your presence

Paralleled with the perennial ache of your absence Yearned for and offered seventh heaven

Now the heart weeps for evanescence

A mirage, to be the fair maiden The sorrow to find out I’d end up our own villain

But all’s well for you are but a distant dream Gamaliel, You are, I knew it from the very beginning .
