Whether its a full-on ugly sob or a single dramatic tear, hardly a K-drama episode goes by without at least one character crying. But there are certain actors and actresses whose tears seem almost too beautiful to be real — except theyre definitely real enough to make us weep along with them!
In no particular order, here are just a few of the K-drama actors and actresses who break our hearts with their pretty, pretty tears (chain-reaction criers, beware!):
I dont think Ive ever seen so many huge, glassy tears well up in someones eyes the way Song Hye Kyo cried in Descendants of the Sun. Fans who remember this scene will know that her character had darn good reason to cry at this moment

Park Bo Gum has one of the most dazzlingly charming smiles on the planet, but he can also pull on your heartstrings in an entirely different way with his weeping. How can anyone not feel sad when those puppy-dog eyes fill up with tears?

Yoo In Na is well-known for her stunning good looks — so maybe its no surprise that her tears are devastatingly beautiful, too. (Goblin fans, go ahead and try to tell me you werent ugly sobbing at this scene. I dare you.)

Yall know its all over when Kim Soo Hyuns perfect face scrunches up and the tears start coming (his, and ours). From his musical prodigy character in Dream High to the ethereal alien Do Min Joon in My Love From the Star, Kim Soo Hyun has given us all the feels no matter what his character is like!

Gong Hyo Jin is known for often playing spunky, no-nonsense characters, but that doesnt mean she cant turn you into a weepy mess in front of your TV/computer screen with her crying scenes. (My personal favorite: Its Okay, Thats Love. *weeps silently*)

Homeboy didnt win a Daesang for nothing — Ji Sung has shown audiences again and again that hes a master at portraying a wide range of emotions through dramas such as Kill Me, Heal Me and Defendant.

Have you ever seen a queen cry as beautifully as Park Min Young in Queen For Seven Days? Those tears may as well be a national treasure.

A lot of Ji Soos characters have been the angsty types. Maybe that makes it all the more crushing when his characters break down, because this kids tears get me every. dang. time.
