    "쌍"-너희 둘은 정말 잘 어울리는 한 쌍인것 같아.(I think you two make a really good couple).

    "짝"-신발 한 짝(a shoe),양말 한 짝(a sock) 등등...

    As you can see in the above examples,"쌍"is usually used when indicating a person.On the other hand "짝"is useally used when indicating one of a pair.
    However,these two words are not necessarily used this way.Sometimes they are interchangeable.but they are almost used this way..

    Hope it helps!
