Three is never a crowd…especially in K-dramas. There’s something about watching three different characters be bonded by their similarities and tested by their differences. This magic number somehow work; bringing us with a dynamic and complex relationship we always enjoy to watch.
As part of our 3rd anniversary specials, we bring you some of our favorite K-dramaland trios!
Yoon Ji-ho, Yang Ho-rang, and Woo Soo-ji (Because This Is My First Life)
These girlfriends stuck with each other through the ups and downs of their #adulting life.
Bae Ta-mi, Cha Hyun, and Song Ka-kyung (Search: WWW)
Frenemies who proved that women run the world (or at least the world of tech companies).
Im Jin-joo, Lee Eun-jung, and Hwang Han-joo (Be Melodramatic)
30s can indeed be happy by having housemates who are also the best lifemates.
Heo Joon, Jo Nam-doo, and Tae-oh (Legend of the Blue Sea)
Con artists whose friendship isn’t fake at all.
Eugene Choi, Goo Dong-mae, and Kim Hee-sung (Mr. Sunshine)
Bromance that budded in a difficult time is a gem.
Eun Ho-won, Do Ki-taek, and Jang Kang-ho (Radiant Office)
These new hires showed us that a good company can make your rookie year more exciting.
Eun Dan-oh, Ha-ru, and Lee Do-hwa (Extraordinary You)
Sometimes I feel like Dan-oh is third-wheeling here. But kidding aside, we always love watching those lunch breaks with these ‘extras’.
Park Cha-oreum, Im Ba-reun, and Han Se-sang (Miss Hammurabi)
The judges from Special Court No. 44 always left us thought-provoking scenes in every episode.
Kang Dong-goo, Lee Joon-ki, and Bong Doo-sik (Laughter in Waikiki)
They share the same wit that filled their house with laughter whenever they’re together.
Lee Il-hwa, Ra Mi-ran, and Kim Sun-young (Reply 1988)
Ssangmundong ahjummas made us laugh and cry throughout the series. They shared valuable life lessons in mundane ways.
