Romantic relationships that guide the development of many romance dramas reflect the diverse tastes and interests of viewers. The common keyword in these relationships is “1 woman, multiple guys.” A new, colorful romance unfolds before your eyes, making you even more curious about the woman’s final choice.
In tvN’s Oh My Baby, Jang Ha Ri (Jang Na Ra) is creating love tension with three men with different personalities and charms, Han Yi Sang (Go Joon), Yoon Jae Young (Park Byung Eun), and Choi Kang Eu Tteum (Jung Gun Joo). The three men’s love bombs toward Kang Ha Ri, who only wants to have kids without getting married, reminds us of “finding the husband.” The upcoming drama KBS2’s Men Are Men, another singledom drama that premiere in July, is also about Seo Hyun Joo (Hwang Jung Eum) getting loved by two men, Hwang Ji Woo (Yoon Hyun Min) and Park Do Gyum (Seo Ji Hoon).
JTBC’s Was It Love, which will also premiere in July, will feature a single mom Noh Ae Jung (Song Ji Hyo) and the four men who revolve around her: Oh Dae Oh (Son Ho Jun), the bad but attractive man, Ryu Jin (Song Jong Ho), the sad but handsome man, Oh Yeon Woo (Koo Ja Sung), the young and exciting man, and Koo Pa Do (Kim Min Joon), the scary but sexy man.
Besides these, Jung Sa Bin (Jin Se Yeon) from KBS2’s Born Again is in a love triangle with Chun Jong Bum (Jang Ki Yong) and Kim Soo Hyun (Lee Soo Hyuk). In Hospital Playlist, Chae Song Hwa (Jeon Mi Do) also was loved by two men, Lee Ik Jun (Jo Jung Suk) and Ahn Chi Hong (Kim Joon Han), and mothers of her friends.

If materials like singledom and single mom create empathy, the heart-fluttering moments are drawn from such romance. “This kind of romance is quite effective because it can present various forms of love. And because there is no fixed couple, it naturally increases the level of immersion, said a broadcasting official.
As the romance between one woman and multiple guys stimulate one’s imaginations and realize one’s dream romance, viewers are paying keen attention to whether such romance will continue to receive great reviews.
