Seo Hyo Rim – Singles June 2013

Not sure if any of you remember her as the spoiled Ha Hyo-eun in Sungkyungkwan Scandal but if any of you watched That Winter, the Wind Blows, you might recognize her as the possessive Oh Soo’s girlfriend Jin So-ra. Seo Hyo-rim has been playing bitchy second lead characters for quite some time and I hope she will pick a project that showcases her pretty and cute side. I kind of loving her character in Me Too, Flower! at first, but when her character Kim Dal was embroiled in Hwa-young’s plot to break the main couple apart, I disliked her character a little for it. She’s radiant in her latest pictorial for Singles’ June edition with summer in California as the theme.

Have you ever encountered a couple or pairing in a K-drama or a K-movie that wasn’t the OTP (One True Pairing) or the main couple, but you loved this couple as much, or even more than the main couple? I have a few, or indeed, a handful of these pairings that I really wish to see again, paired together in a drama. Since these actors and actresses, who were once second leads, rise to become the main leads nowadays, it can be hard to see them meet again in dramas, but a fan like me can dream…right?
