You know how it goes: Character A likes Character B, yay! Everything seems fine for them until Character C comes in the picture and makes a move to Character B, giving the much-needed ~tension~ to the story. Sometimes, Character C isn't even in it for romance and is used to support Character A or Busually as a BFF! In K-Dramaland, everyone, Character C is our dear second lead. The ones who *almost* get the girl, but not quite. The ones who, more often than not, are left with bittersweet endings. *SIGHS*

Yup, it's so obvious I love second leads and other Pinays feel the same way as I do! Here, we listed down their ~from~ Cosmo Mixers on who their ultimate K-drama second leads are.

"WITHOUT A DOUBT: Siwon in She Was Pretty! I was so in love with him in this series! His scenes made me cry, especially when he gave his big speech about giving him a chance. :((( Siwon deserved better, I swear!" Retty

"He saw the girl as pretty when everyone else did not. He was always there for her disregarding yung physical appearance ni girl. Even si PSJ nagustuhan lang yung girl nang gumanda na siya at nung nalaman niyang childhood friend niya pala 'yon.Paula

"Grabe nakaka-in love siya sa She Was Pretty. Hindi ko maintindihan noon bakit pipiliin ni girl yung supladong boss ng The Most. Fast-forward to five years later, Park Seo Joon is now one of my top oppas. Pero Kim Shin Hyuk of She Was Pretty talaga best second lead at yayamanin na TOTGA everrr." Ginyn

He was an asshole, yesthey both werebut his character arc grew so much from the first episode to the very last one. I cannot rave enough about this second lead, huhu! I really just want Young Do to find someone who loves him back. He deserves the world." Cindy

"I love Joo Hyuk but he obviously did not deserve Eun Bi. It was Tae Kwang who made a lot of effort. It was Tae Kwang who never left Eun Bi's side. It was Tae Kwang who was there for her through thick and thin. And yet, she didn't choose him. Honestly, I hate Eun Bi's character because of that. LOL" Jayzeel

11. Ryu Jun Yeol as Kim Jung Hwan in Reply 1988

Who's starring in it: Lee Hyeri and Park Bo Gum

Continue reading below ↓

Where you can watch it: Netflix

"While I absolutely love Park Bo Gum and his charismatic character as Taek, I was really rooting for Jung Hwan and Deok Sun in that series. Jung Hwan's love for Deok Sun was quietly seen and felt on the sidelines. He just always held back and was never brave enough to confess his feelings to Deok Sun.

"When he finally decided to act on his feelings, it was too late. He said, 'He wanted her more than I did. I should have been more courageous. It wasn't the traffic lights. It wasn't timing. It was my many hesitations.'" Katrina
