Love triangles are one of the biggest forms of drama in Korea. It is intriguing and, in some way, holds a lot of suspense. Here, viewers always or mostly want the female lead to end up with the second male lead, or sometimes we end up confused on who is best for her as much as the female lead is. Mostly situations of male leads always falling in love with one female lead is common. So, we have made a compilation of both male leads loving a female lead and female leads loving a male. It also ranges from high-school dramas to the corporate world and medieval dramas.
- She Was Pretty
To most people, this love triangle made the water in their eyes dry up due to the excessive out pour of tears in some scenes. Whilst it is classified as a Rom-com, some scenes were packed with a lot of emotions that could break ice.
It all started when she backed out of meeting her long-lost childhood friend due to him becoming gorgeous and her, oh well, not so gorgeous as she inherited her father’s frizzy hair and overly red cheeks.
She lands a job at a fashion magazine by accident, finds out her best friend is her new boss. Another staff begins to develop feelings for her and a triangle occurs.
2. True Beauty
One of the most talked about love triangle in 2021, where a female student’s life changes as she learns make-up techniques, to cover up her natural looks and makes sure she was never to be seen in her new life without make-up. Later on, a classmate which is seemingly cold to others due to pains he carries from past events sees her bare face. They rely on each other and develop feelings whereas, the male lead’s best friend whom is seen as a bully also finds himself falling for her.
3. Another Miss Oh
A man faces disappointment as his bride-to-be disappears on their wedding day. A year after he was told that his runaway bride is set to marry a young entrepreneur. In revenge he sabotages the business of the man leaving him bankrupt. But in reality, the woman was just someone that had the same name as his ex. The bankrupt man set to be imprisoned lied and broke up with his soon to be wife. So, she could forget about him and find happiness again; but she is left heartbroken
Now, the disappointed man and the heartbroken woman cross paths and a love story erupts.
4. Strong Girl Do Bong-soon
This is a very lovable drama in the sense that it incorporates women empowerment, modern day corporate lifestyle and young love. Do Bong Soon initially loves her childhood friend turned cop, he cares for her but doesn’t give her romantic attention, later she ends up being the body guard for a game company CEO, which she finds annoying but later starts developing feelings for.
This is probably, one of the non-toxic love triangles out here as it gives a great laugh and eventually works things out with the trio.
5. Cheese in the Trap
This series might be given the award for being one of the biggest cases of Second Male Lead Syndrome.
Here, Jung Yoo is a quiet and reserved guy, he keeps everything to himself. Hong Seol likes him, and they start dating. All the while, Hong Seol is becoming closer to Jung Yoo’s ex best friend. He is the opposite of Jung Yoo as he is loud and whimsical, he gives her comfort and puts a smile on her face. On the long run he starts falling for her but she is already too invested with Jung Yoo.
6. The Bride of Haebak
A narcissistic water god is sent to earth to search for powerful stones to help him ascend to his throne. He enlists the help of a psychiatrist destined as his slave. She had skepticisms of divine origin and didn’t take him seriously as she was already facing challenges in her business.
She coincidentally meets a rich business man who is trying to develop human feelings, and of course picks interest in her.
Soon, the water god also can’t stay without her as his feelings for her run deep.
This sounds serious, and almost like a clash of titans (lol) but it is definitely a good watch.
7. She Would Never Know
This is a complicated office love triangle that has cuteness overload. Here, an intern falls for his sunbae and his sunbae is in an office romance with another sunbae. But truth unfolds as she finds out her love is set to marry another. Her intern offers a shoulder to cry on and makes her smile, soon she gives him a chance, but her ex seemingly does not want to let go
8. Love Alarm
This drama is a fairly based triangle that drew a lot of attention. Lee Hye Yeong is in love with Kim Jo Jo and has been for some time now. He wants to confess to her but also enjoys watching and helping her from afar, acknowledging that he doesn’t want to make her life messy. However, everything changes when Hye Yeong’s best friend comes back and learns about his crush.
9. Hwarang: The Poet Warrior Youth
If you like talking to your screens in annoyance and a brain racketing series then this is for you.
It is a group of elite young men called Hwarang, they discover their passion, friendship and love in the turmoil of the Silla Kingdom.
10. Record of Youth
Best friends fall in love with the same girl who is a makeup artiste. She has a relationship with one guy and the other hasn’t confessed his feelings, she decides to breakup due to ongoing circumstances and the other decides to tell her how he feels. Now, who would she pick to date amongst best friends.
Bonus: Moon Lovers
This series is beyond a triangle, more like a circle but we cannot overlook what was happening here. With IU capturing the hearts of everyone, including the viewers.
