Remember the Valentine's Day K-Drama proposal tips? Now that the special day is finally here, check out some of these successful, real life proposal scenes. Some will make you laugh, some will make you cry, but certainly not as much as the brides-to-be.
Flash mob proposal
Sometimes you need a little extra help to show your significant other just how much you love them. This future groom starts off by announcing to the streets, "Hello everyone. I am the happiest man in the world because today is the 2,000th day since my girlfriend and I have been dating. So I'm here to confess something to her so please cheer me on everyone." The crowd, of course, is more than ready to help a bro out, and even gets a flash mob happening.
Bubbles and balloons
Want something a little more magical? This groom-to-be enlisted the help of not only back-up dancers, but of bubbles and balloons. The prettiness doesn't end there as each dancer hands the lucky lady a white rose and the groom even prepares a giant, "Will you marry me~?" banner to hang from a nearby building. Wow bro, you really went all the way.
Looks like a lot of guys had a similar idea of dancing in the middle of the streets for their future waifus. This one decided to make it an extra surprise by hiring singers to pretend that they are putting on a public proposal, when he's actually going to come out and steal the show. Those cheeky winks though.
Movie date proposal
Speaking of surprise proposals, imagine this future bride's shock when on a movie date, the 'Dream Works' production she's about to see is actually a slideshow telling the story of her and her boyfriend's love.
When it comes to surprises, a magician always has a few tricks up his sleeve. This magician decides to use a deck of cards to tell his girlfriend that he wants to marry her. He divides the deck into two, turns the cards blue, and flips them over to reveal his secret message: "Miyoung ah <3. Marry me."
One guy gathers his group of bros to surprise his flight attendant girlfriend with a random airport performance. The boys suit up in mascot outfits, take pictures with amused tourists, and then bombard their target with dances and songs that contain romantic lyrics.
Winnie the Pooh goes down on one knee first in an attempt to snatch up this honey, but the groom jumps out of his pig's clothing and puts a ring on it, finishing off with "You Raise Me Up" booming in the background.
While others recruit the help of dancers, this man gets himself a band of blue-suited singers to serenade his love in the middle of a cafe. Carrying a conductor's baton, he orchestrates this special performance before reading his loved one a heartfelt card, dancing (of course), and dropping some banners reading, "Thank you for being with me! Thank you for loving me! I am lacking but the thing I wanted to make sure to tell you is… will you marry me?"
'Gag Concert' proposal
Who can forget the famous proposal that occurred on 'Gag Concert' a little over two years ago? Comedian Yoo Hong Bin surprised both his viewers and his current wife Jang Kyung Mi when he came onto the stage during Jang Kyung Mi's skit. At the 2:00 minute mark he says, "I am a victim to Kyung Mi," and, "I will be suing her."
When Jang Kyung Mi asks in shock, "What are you doing?!" Yoo Hong Bin clarifies, saying, "She has committed a special crime of stealing my mind, my heart, my everything. This disorderly conduct where she makes me want to kiss her even in front of a lot of people. I will now sentence her to life imprisonment." He faces her and finally proposes, saying, "Kyung Mi-yah, from now on, live forever with me."
Smooth. So. Smooth.
Turns out that you don't have to be a celebrity to put on a special skit for your loved one. This man surprises his wife-to-be by organizing a lip-dub performance in the middle of a mall. What starts off as a couple fighting and causing a commotion in public turns out to be a performance by people of all vocations encouraging the girl to say, "I do."
Sometimes it's fun to borrow ideas you see on the big screen and just add a little twist. This man was inspired by the famous 'Love Actually' signs scene to make signs on his own--on his layers and layers of shirts. Although his girlfriend lives in an apartment instead of a suburban house, the guy makes do by having her go up an elevator and meeting her on every floor with a new shirt conveying his message.
Starting from 1:17, his full message reads: "Can you take a moment to hear what I have to say? It has been 1000 days since we started dating. It has been 3 years since I first met you. I fell in love with you at first sight. I confessed I would only love you. I am lucky that I met you out of all the people in the world! I will make you the happiest in the world."
Grooms-to-be put a lot of effort into creating the perfect proposals. This man decides to do his at a bakery, where he enlists the help of employees, customers, and friends to show his special lady a cake that spells out, "WILL YOU MARRY ME?", give her flowers, and congratulate her with a touching video.
