The drama industry broke new records, with Squid Game being the most-watched show on Netflix. This feat allowed K-dramas to have even a more prominent presence globally, and it's only going up from here.

With that being said, there were many romantic couples that were worth shipping. Here were some couples that caught our attention throughout the year -- let us know your thoughts!

Do ppl actually ship the couple in Now We're Breaking Up?

For me, a pairing has to have great action scenes+sparking chemistry+they get each other+they compromise+have each other's backs+look good together+no toxicity to be a power couple.

I'd nominate Sae Bom + Ji Hyun ('Happiness') for the Best Couple of 2021. They're such a badass duo, plus them being besties and always looking out for each other just makes them such a powerful pairing!

Just for fun, I'd give my own nominations based on the vibes they give from what I've come across online (I've only watched Taxi Driver and Happiness) 😁:

"Vigilante Couple" Ahn Go Eun+Kim Do Gi (Taxi Driver)

"Soft Couple" Hye Jin+Doosik (Hometown Cha-cha-cha)

"Couple on Crack" Ja Hyung+Vincenzo

"Toxic & Passionate Couple" Yoo Nabi+Jae On (Nevertheless)

"Tragic & Loving Couple" Duk Im+Yee San (The Red Sleeve)
