Apart from having K-drama’s boyfriend in real life, we also wish to have a group of friends. The chaotic sense of humor, the insult teasing, the advice, and the memories that K-drama friendship groups create that we also want to experience in real life.
1. Reply 1988’s Ssangmundong Squad
Starting strong with the 2015 super hit K-drama Reply 1988, which showcases the story of five families that live in the same neighborhood alley. The family's children are best friends with each other. Sung Deok-sun, Kim Jung Hwan, Choi Taek, Sung Sun-woo, and Ryu Dong-ryong grew up as best friends. Watching a TV show and laughing or crying with each other numbs the pain. The genuine friendship that is so longed for in today’s time.
2. Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo’s Swag Squad
Friends who eat and support each other stay together eternally. The Swag Squad of Kim Bok Joo, Nan Hee, and Seon Ok is a beautiful friend group we wish to be part of. They are everything to look for in a friend. It's funny and chaotic that with one hug of theirs, our problems get better.
3. Crash Landing On You’s Company Five
Crash Landing On You’s Company Five has set an example that friendship is the second name of trust and loyalty. Their friendship shows they are good soldiers and genuine friends of Captain Ri. You just have to wait for their friendship to grow in drama, and after that, everything is just great to watch.
4. Boys Over Flowers’s F4
The craze this late 2000 drama has done to the community is remarkable, and what tops it is the F4 squad of Gun Jun Pyo, Yoon Ji Hoo, So Yi Jung, and Song Woo Bin. The wealthy boys differ from each other so much yet are each other’s backbone. No one except them sees the reality of their friendship as so pure we wish we were also a part of their friendship group.
5. The Hospital Playlist’s Friends Group
First of all, there will never be any friendship that friendship the way their friendship did. Lee Ik Joon, Ahn Jung Won, Kim Joon Wan, Yang Seok Hyung, and Chae Song Hwa are friends who went together to medical school and work in the same hospital. Apart from working, they also have a band. Their friendship is so chaotic as they randomly have food fights and converse super loud.
6. The Hwarang's Warriors
If you have not watched the drama Hwarang yet, still I can bet you have seen at least some of the comic scenes about the friendship group that consists of Moo Myung, Sam Maek Jong, Soo Ho, Ban Ryu, Han Sung, and Yeo Wool are the warriors who are at first were enemies. But later, their bromance became the talk of the town as it was filled with hilarious scenes.
7. Twenty-Five, Twenty-One’s Favorite Five
Just for your sanity, skip the last episode, but please watch this drama because of the chaotic companionship between Na Hui-do, Baek Jin, Moon Ji-ung, Ko Yurim, and Ji Seung-wan. They all are suffering from diverse problems in their life, but as they get together, their found friendship will make you laugh and sob your tears.
8. Hello, My Twenties’s The Girls Squad
It’s rare for a female friendship without jealousy and just pure love. But the K-drama Hello, My Twenties Girls Squad gives us the possibility that female friendship can be without jealousy. Song Ji-Won, Yoo Eun-Jae, Yoon Jin-Myung, Kang Yi-Na, and Jung Ye-Eun become roommates and share a beautiful friendship.
9. Vincenzo’s The Plaza Crew
What happens when thirteen chaotic people come under the same roof? Just two words: chaotic and hilarious. Hong Cha Young, her father, Hong Yoo Chan, and thirteen other crew members work in Geumga Plaza. And shoo away those who try to buy the plaza until an Italian and Korean Mafia, Vincenzo Cassona, the landlord, makes an entry.
10. Welcome To Waikiki’s Trio
If I have to select one K-drama friends group to join, Welcome To Waikiki’s Trio will be my answer. Lee Joon-ki, Kang Dong-gu, and Cha Woo-sik are a trio that opens a guesthouse called “Waikiki,” but their business is not working as they are clueless. I will just say it’s 80 percent laughter and 20 percent drama.
