These Korean On-Screen Couples Have Worked On More Than One Project Together

Because of their unmistakable chemistry, viewers deserved to see them paired up again

Unlike in the Philippines, where loveteams are common in showbiz, K-dramas and Korean films don't often feature the same on-screen couples or pairings. And that's part of what makes them exciting, because the tandems you've been hoping to see may just actually happen.


While the familiarity that comes with following a loveteam's body of work is satisfying, fresh pairings are also met with a whole new level of enthusiasm, with viewers eager to see what surprises they have in store for them and how effective their on-screen chemistry could be.  


But there are times, too, when Korean actors and actresses are tapped for the same project more than once, especially if their chemistry is palpable and unmistakable, so much so viewers deserve to see them paired up again. Although not common, we've seen many of them work together for the second (or even third) time around. 


One of those on-screen duos are Park Hyung Sik and Park Shin Hye, who were both cast members of the 2013 hit series The Heirs. The two first worked with each other in the said series and reunited for the upcoming 2024 medical drama Doctor Slump. The show depicts the story of two professionals Yeo Jung Woo (Hyung Sik) and Nam Ha Neul (Shin Hye), who are taking on current challenges. Jung Woo, a plastic surgeon with a seemingly perfect life, suddenly loses confidence in himself as his career takes a downward turn, while Ha Neul, an anesthesiologist, aspires to have a life worth living.
