As someone who believes that men and women can be “just friends,” I’m not a huge fan of the friends-to-lovers trope. However, the currently airing drama “Love is for Suckers” has made me consider that friendship-based love can be extra meaningful because of the genuine and long-lasting emotions. In this drama, TV producer Goo Yeo Reum (Lee Da Hee) asks Park Jae Hoon (Choi Siwon), who has been her best friend for 20 years, to appear on her reality dating show. He agrees to help, but they unexpectedly begin to develop feelings for each other while filming the show. I think their relationship is a perfect example of friendship goals. They constantly encourage each other, make each other laugh, and are there for one other when they are at their lowest. Since Park Jae Hoon learned how much he loved Goo Yeo Reum just before her wedding, he confessed his feelings to her but was friend-zoned as Yeo Reum is afraid of losing her best friend. I’m really looking forward to seeing how their relationship develops further and what their chemistry is like as both friends and lovers!
