Piggyback Ride

A very classic way of transportation in K-Dramaland is the piggyback ride where usually a man carries a woman on his back. The woman needs to be carried because she drank excessively or because she feels unwell or has an injury that makes it impossible for her to walk.

Classic in some of these moments is a drunken confession by the girl, a comment by the guy about the weight of the girl (“How can a little girl be so heavy?”) or a realization by the guy that the girl on his back will never become his girlfriend because she already gave her heart to somebody else. A piggyback ride thus often means the debut of a relationship (even if it’s not your own).

Apart from its romantic aspects, the piggyback ride is also often used to carry an injured person to a nearby doctor or hospital.
