We have all heard that you can’t be friends with someone you work with. Especially in highly competitive spaces, like the film industry. While we grew up watching spats and rivalries between Bollywood contemporaries, these Kdrama actors broke stereotypes just by being friends with their peers and co-actors and set new examples.
It is no news that actors remain extremely busy. But if you thought maintaining friendships with a busy schedule was impossible, let these K-drama actors prove you wrong. Their friendship might have started on the set of a movie or at a fashion show, but they became friends for life. Celebrating love, friendship and having each other’s backs, here are some K-drama actors who are real-life BFFs.
