20 Lovey-Dovey Real and Imaginary Couples
In matters of love, it’s generally considered sensible to focus only on that which affects us directly. After all, love is difficult enough to find and keep in one’s own life without having to worry about finding it for another. Plus, sometimes it’s considered rude to nose into the affairs of a third party. But sometimes, you have two people that you just know would be totally right for each other. When they’re together, their chemistry is so palpable the atmosphere practically feels electric. They might send each other quick glances, or show more concern for the other’s welfare than is really necessary. Or they might even go the other route and try to hide their feelings by teasing each other mercilessly. In these cases, you might suspect that the two are seeing each other privately, but are keeping their relationship on the DL. There’s just really no way of knowing, is there? But occasionally, in the best of worlds, you discover that the stars have aligned and this guy and girl who belong together have opened their eyes and are now officially involved.

Over the past month, we held a friendly contest for our shipping community to commemorate Valentine’s Day, and the various fandoms showed up in full force to support their “ship.” Pictures, videos, and text — every team did a wonderful job of making us understand and believe in why their ship belongs together. Here we condensed a bit of content from every participating fandom. In completely random order, let’s do a run-down of 20 of the best real and imaginary couples in the world of Korean entertainment!
