Without being cheesy or tear-jerking like in romance series, these 5 couples in action Korean dramas still make the viewers’ hearts pound.
Compared to other couples from the series of the romance genre, the following 5 couples are more “disadvantaged” because there are not many intimate scenes between them in the scripts. But that does not stand in the way of these couples showing off their heart-pounding chemistry, which contributes significantly to the success of the dramas.
1. Cha Dal Gun, Go Hae Ri – Vagabond
Netflix’s hit Vagabond marks the second time Lee Seung Gi and Suzy acted alongside one another. Therefore, their chemistry is extremely natural and they look comfortable around each other in every scene of Vagabond. Although the drama does not include many intimate and romantic scenes, feelings for each other of the two leads are well portrayed, making the viewers appreciate the rare sweet moments in this action blockbuster even more.
2. Jeon Pil Do, Yoon Ji Woo – My Name
Playing the feisty female protagonist Yoon Ji Woo in Netflix’s action thriller My Name, Han So Hee received much praise for her acting performance and impressive change in image.

Specifically, the couple’s steamy bed scene quickly became a trending topic on social media after the series was released.
3. Kim Soo Hyun, Do Hyun Jin – Kill It
Kill It marks the first on-screen collaboration of the “long-legged” duo Jang Ki Yong and Nana.
