A lot of romantic Korean dramas are known for their lovey-dovey, somewhat scandalous scenes. But, of course, we all enjoy watching these funnier shows sometimes, right? And among them is the ultimate guilty pleasure.
That is no other than when you get to watch two people in your favourite show say their wedding vows in front of their friends and family. These wedding scenes happen in many other dramas but incorporate different elements to make them more romantic than the last.
What makes a great K-drama wedding? It’s not just about the bride and groom, although of course fans are there to see the bride in her gorgeous dress, as well as her handsome groom. What makes it exciting is all of the funny circumstances that come before the big moment.
1. Goblin (Goblin & Eun-Tak)
There are moments that even the most avid K-drama fans might not have seen coming. One of those is Goblin’s Eun-tak getting married to arguably the show’s biggest fan favourite, Goblin.
Goblin is rendered speechless, staring at her. Finally, the two of them marry at night in a green field by candlelight. The wedding scene was heightened by this event where the two meet again later, only for Eun-Tak to finally encounter her own demise.
2. Tale Of The Nine-Tailed (Lee Yeon & Ji-Ah)
When it comes to epic love stories, there’s no K-drama like Tale of the Nine-Tailed. Lee Yeon and Ji-ah face various challenges and obstacles along the way, many of which stem from Lee Yeon’s unfortunate fate as a powerful Gumiho or foxlike creature.
Lee Yeon is so considerate! He seems to really know what his bride wants. He is already thinking about the wedding’s location and poses for eye-catching photos.
It looks like Lee Yeon can’t wait to hold his love in his arms on their special day. Well, it is the viewers who have now left longing for this gorgeous wedding!
3. True Beauty (Hee-Kyung & Joon-Woo)
Many tropes were used in this K-drama about finding your inner self and accepting oneself for who they really are, which had viewers hooked on the drama from the first episode to the last.
Fans couldn’t help but laugh and marvel at the wedding between Hee-Kyung (Im Se-Mi) and Joon-Woo (Oh Eui-Shik) just as they loved their second lead couple, which was illustrated throughout the entire series beginning to end.
4. Strong Woman Bong-Soon (Bong-Soon & Min-Hyuk)
The romance comedy Strong Woman Bong-Soon has been a hit among fans because of the strong lead character and the many comedic moments sprinkled throughout the K-drama.
While fans loved watching Bong-Soon (Park Bo-young) and Min-Hyuk’s (Park Hyung-Sik) relationship blossom, what they loved most was watching their wedding day unfold before them.
5. Start-Up (Dal-Mi & Do-San)
At the end of Netflix’s original series, Start-Up, Dal-Mi (Bae Suzy) and Do-San (Nam Joo-Hyuk) get married. Both went through a lot from the beginning until the very end, as Dal-Mi realises that her fiancé is not the same person from her childhood. But they were able to finally have a happy ending despite all that had happened between them.
Though we don’t see them get explicitly married, we can assume that they end up happily married since the show’s last scene features photos on someone’s desk showing them in formal dress with Dal-Mi wearing a veil.
6. What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim? (Mi-So & Young-Joon)
Fans of Secretary Kim might remember the charismatic secretary taking care of his workaholic boss who didn’t know much about relationships but was always jealous whenever Yoo-Kyung (Park Min Young) hung out with another guy. However, at Young-Joon and Dam Bi’s wedding, they managed to share some good laughs and some heartfelt tears.
Before taking their vows, Young-Joon is clearly nervous as he can’t stop his leg from shaking – a trait that suggests he hasn’t been this nervous about anything ever before. After the two hold hands and say “I do”, everyone in attendance applauds them as they walk down the aisle.
7. Angel’s Last Mission: Love (Yeon-Seo & Dan)
The story of Angel’s Last Mission: Love will be the perfect K-drama to cheer you up and make you laugh! Lee Yeon-Seo (Shin Hye-Sun) was once a great ballerina who suffered an accident, leaving her unable to see.
As a result, she’s now feeling bitter and cold. On the other hand, Dan (Kim Myung-Soo) is an optimistic yet troublesome angel tasked with finding Yeon-Seo’s true love, only to fall for her himself!
Yeon-Seo walks down the aisle with her husband Dan by her side, symbolising their everlasting love. As they believe in themselves more than anything, they make vows to one another about making all their own fate!
8. Flower Of Evil (Hee-Sung & Ji-Won)
Flower of Evil is a melodrama with fantastic plotline characters that one cannot let go of. Lee Joon-Gi plays the part of Hee-Sung, whom one can relate to because he perfectly plays both sides of his personality as the tough detective and the doting family man.
At the beginning of the show’s final episode, fans see a flashback of Hee-Sung and his wife’s wedding day. As he explains that “Life is not about any event that happens during your life.”
The scene is emotional as both Hee-Sung and his wife really felt like this was their one true meaning of what love was.
9. Marriage Not Dating (Gi-Tae & Jang-Mi)
Their wedding day was far from perfect and even comical. First, the couple has unresolved issues that lead to a fight before they take their vows. Then, at the altar, they’re caught by surprise as it starts pouring rain unexpectedly.
As their guests start scrambling away, Gi-Tae and Jang-Mi start laughing; there’s no need to change plans on account of some rain!
Even if it is unexpected and uncomfortable, these two will make do with what they’ve got. They exchange rings and share a kiss in the rain – all together as one big happy family.
10. 18 Again (Da-Jung & Dae-Youn)
Dae-Young, whose life spirals downward as he goes through a divorce, has to be responsible for his seven-year-old daughter. Soon, he wishes he could reset the clock on his life – only now, this wish is heard. He turns 18 again! But things aren’t as simple as Dae-Young thought they would be.
He had a journey of self-discovery and realised his wife’s sadness, and fell in love all over again. And the heartfelt and emotional story only got better as Dae-Young, returned to his actual age and remarried his wife.
