Rom-coms have always been a huge thing in K-dramas - right next to meldoramas - so there's no surprise that some actresses find themselves specializing in this genre to immense success.
Let's celebrate these lovable, humorous actresses below and thank them for "ruining their image," as they'd say, to provide us with a good laugh and happy smile through multiple successful rom-coms!
Hwang Jung Eum
Hwang Jung Eum is known as the rom-com queen of Korea at the moment thanks to her line of recent successes in dramas like 'Kill Me, Heal Me,' 'She Was Pretty,' and 'Lucky Romance.' She has an over-the-top acting style that is humorous, and it works so well because she doesn't care how silly she looks. Even in more serious dramas like 'Incarnation of Money,' she provides the comic relief.
Seo Hyun Jin
Seo Hyun Jin has been making her way up the ladder of rom-com queens with her recent bout of successes like 'Let's Eat 2' and 'Oh Hae Young Again.' Like Hwang Jung Eum, she does not care about ruining her image by acting ridiculous and quirky to the max.
Han Ye Seul
Han Ye Seul has proven herself an endearing rom-com queen through her various works, from her very successful drama 'Fantasy Couple' to her most recent drama 'Madame Antoine.' She's cute and the way she speaks helps her comedic delivery. Hyper and quirky, she is a favorite when it comes to rom-coms!
Kim Seul Gi
Although Kim Seul Gi is not always the lead character, she often steals the spotlight for her side-to-main stories as a cute rom-com queen. She did start off her career through 'SNL Korea' where she got love for her cursing. She continues that sort of bizarre and cheery image through works like 'Discovery of Love,' 'Surplus Princess,' 'Oh My Ghost,' and 'Splash Splash Love.'
Choi Kang Hee
Choi Kang Hee is super cute and is a more down-to-earth rom-com queen who anchors down the ridiculous hilarity that might be going on thanks to other characters in the drama. Her surprised expressions and her chill attitude make her a great lead in dramas like 'Protect the Boss,' '7th Grade Civil Servant,' and more.
Yoon Eun Hye
Yoon Eun Hye is fairly versatile, but she's mostly been in sweet rom-coms, starting off her successful acting career with 'Goong (Princess Hours)' before heading onto 'Coffee Prince,' 'Lie to Me,' and 'The Future Choice.' She's funny and cute, an effective combo for a rom-com queen.
Gong Hyo Jin
A versatile actress, she is very well-liked. She can do serious roles and laid-back roles with a touch of humor like in 'The Producers' and 'It's Okay, That's Love,' but she's also much beloved for her sweet and humorous acting in rom-coms like everyone's favorite 'Greatest Love' and 'The Sun of My Master.'
