From old childhood friends to love rivals turned best friends, here are some of the best Kdrama bromances:
This is, without a doubt, the perfect example of a ‘bromance’.

South Korean fans called the pair of friends the ‘dumb and dumb duo’ and it’s not hard to see why, as one of the most iconic scenes in Kdrama is when they tried to throw each other under a bus when a package arrived. the hands of their girlfriends.
Completely different from each other but united by the love of the same girl. The bromance that arose between the United States Ambassador Eugene Choi, the son of a Korean nobleman, Kim Hee Sung, and the Korean-Japanese swordsman Gu Dong Mae is another reason that makes Mr. Sunshine one of the best Kdramas of all the times.
Despite the marked differences in their past and present, they managed to find support, comfort, and empathy for each other. Besides that those same differences give us incredibly funny scenes.
