K-netizens Share More Great Future Pairings of Actor and Actress They Want to See Together in a Drama Including Park Bo Gum-Kim Ji Won, Park Seo Joon-Jung Yumi, and Kim Sun Ho-Seo Hyun Jin

The K-netizens GIF abilities and great pairing intuition once again delivers a treat for the eyes and food for thought. A new post circulating shares more potential K-drama pairings, mostly modern drama styles, that the netizens think need to work together because it’s bound to be awesome. The first is Park Bo Gum and Kim Ji Won, who almost did work together as she was first offered the role in Moonlight Drawn by Clouds along with other reported leading ladies including Kim Go Eun before the role landed with Kim Yoo Jung. I love that pairing and drama but could totally see Park Bo Gum and Kim Ji Won as needing to happen down the road as a great theoretical romance drama couple. Other pairings suggested by K-netizens in the post include: Park Seo Joon-Jung Yumi, Kim Sun Ho-Seo Hyun Jin, Song Kang-Suzy, Nam Joo Hyuk-Park Bo Young, Kim Woo Bin-Han So Hee, Lee Jae Wook-Kim So Hyun, Kim Young Dae-Kim Hyun Soo, and Lee Do Hyun-Kim Hye Yoon. I think half of these pairings would be great in either modern or sageuk while others I can only see working in a modern romance.
