KDramas with Bromance better than its Romance

Bromance is a fairly common trope in the Korean dramaland and my personal favourite because platonic relationship that still appears somewhat BL? Yes, that's the kind of friendship I approve of. Be it be love to hate, mutual understanding, childhood besties or mere acquaintance turned best of buds. So needless to say if there's an iconic bromance I might be skipping through some cheesy romance scenes.
