From relationship quirks that make you giggle to real-world incidences that we all can relate to, Malaysian couple Jason and Ymei became the star characters of the Internet-famous comics — all by accident, in fact. Back in 2013, when they were still in college, Jason started drawing cute stuff to make Ymei smile or to annoy her, and now over 580,000 followers love reading comics about them.

Here at Bright Side, we invite you to take a look at the potato couple comics, which are simply made to evoke the best feelings. Scroll down and see for yourself.
