All the single ladies, now put your hands up! Many of us gorgeous ladies are stuck at home with not much opportunity to mingle with new people. And if you don’t have a date this Valentine’s season, we’ve got you covered! Enter fantasyland and go on a date with these boyfriend-material K-drama actors that will make you swoon all over. Girls already in a relationship are also welcome (get your date ideas here!).
While he’s primarily known as a K-pop idol, Cha Eun-woo has also made it big in the K-drama department. His most notable drama roles—Do Kyung-seok in My ID Is Gangnam Beauty and Lee Suho in True Beauty—are known to be cold and aloof. However, we’re awestruck by how romantic and sentimental Cha Eun-woo can be in real life.
Perfect date: A romantic dinner at home where you can be intimate, eat good food, and share your deepest feelings with each other.
Watch him on: True Beauty, My ID Is Gangnam Beauty, Rookie Historian Goo Hae Ryung
Hwang In-yeop has given us severe second lead syndrome with his lovable portrayal of the rough and unruly Han Seo-jun in True Beauty. His beauty can be intimidating, but just like in the drama, In-yeop is actually a softie and self-confessed introvert.
Perfect date: Something fashionable like a date in an Insta-perfect cafe; or a road trip in Siargao on a motorbike (Hwang In-yeop has a motorcycle license!)
Watch him on: True Beauty, 18 Again, The Tale of Nokdu
The national second male lead of South Korea is the leading man of our hearts. Kim Seon-ho had his breakout role as Han Ji-pyeong in Start-Up, and we’ve since fallen into an eternal swoon. In real life, Kim Seon-ho is gentle and innocent as revealed in the variety show 2 Days and 1 Night, where you can find him in his more natural and fun state.
Perfect date: An easygoing theme park date where you can have fun, laugh, and talk comfortably.

If you haven’t watched Flower of Evil yet, get ready to be swept away by Lee Joon-gi’s thrilling acting. And that’s exactly why we’re daydreaming of a date with him right now. Aside from his good looks, he is one of the most talented artists in the industry. He has done modeling, singing, martial arts—he’s practically run the whole gamut.
Perfect date: A dynamic and exciting activity like island hopping. Boracay, Cebu, Palawan—options are endless if you’re dating someone like Lee Joon-gi in the Philippines!
Watch him on: Flower of Evil, Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo, Gunman in Joseon
Our oppa radar always goes crazy whenever there’s news of a new K-drama—or variety—with Lee Seung-gi in it (he has an upcoming drama this 2021!). From My Girlfriend Is a Gumiho through military service and to Vagabond, his swoon-worthy boyish appeal has remained strong.
Perfect date: A road trip! After watching variety shows Hometown Flex and Twogether, we’re simply convinced Lee Seung-gi is the perfect travel buddy.
Watch him on: Vagabond, A Korean Odyssey, My Girlfriend Is a Gumiho
