There are so many swoon-worthy leading men. But would they make good real life significant others? The Fangirls choose their favorite real life kdrama boyfriends.
DAY 25: Drama character you’d actually want to date (not just lust after).
CLKYTTA: Ahn Dan Tae from Beautiful Gong Shim. I love how he’s goofy, but responsible and dependable. He can enjoy life, but he also knows that bad things happen and he tries to make the wrongs right. He’s not blinded by outer beauty, but sees what is inside and loves a girl for the whole package, not the pretty wrapping. He’s the kind of guy who you can be yourself around and he will like you more for it.
Drama Geek: I almost said Seo Jung Hoo from Healer, but I’m not sure I can handle all the danger. Or maybe Choi Han Kyul from Coffee Prince. I mean, he went all in for her, that’s a pretty awesome boyfriend. I couldn’t handle piggybacking him when he got drunk though. Do Min Joon stops time for his girl, so he could be totally swoonworthy but there is that towel in the shower thing and I’m not sure I could deal. Then there’s Yoon Dong Ha from Witch’s Romance. I already know the age difference wouldn’t be a problem, so I’m ahead of the game there. But I just couldn’t take him from Ji Yeon. All right, I think I’ve rambled enough. I’ll go with Kang Ho Goo. He’s super loveable, doesn’t have chaebol parents, is the sweetest dad ever, and he just warmed my heart so much. (Though again, I’m not sure I could take him away from his beautiful family. LOL) I think I’ll just take Seo In Guk or Ryo Joon Yeol and tell them to ad-lib for me any of the character’s they’ve been before and I’ll be super happy and won’t have to steal the character from their OTP mate.
Kdrama Jen: This is a TOUGH decision. Since there is a clear statement that this must be a character one would date and not just lust over, this requires some serious thought. Clearly, I would have to sift through the second leads because they are almost always better choices for a stable relationship. So, Chilbong (Yoo Yeon Suk) from Reply 1994 would have to make that list. I also fell hard for Shi Woo (Jong Yong Hwa) from You’re Beautiful. Seo In Guk in Master’s Sun would be a great choice too. I kind of go for the geeky and sweet type, so leading men who fit that profile would be Park Bo Gum in Answer Me 1988 (and his baduk playing awesomeness.), and more recently, I think it has to be Ryo Joon Yeol’s adorkable character in Lucky Romance. Oh, but wait! I kind of think it would be awesome to go out with someone who knows what I am thinking without any effort on my part, so Lee Jong Suk’s character in I Hear Your Voice might be my winner. You know, I think this is an unfair question. I like living in my fantasy world where I have created my own Kdrama Go game–I like to collect them all!
KMUSE: This is a really hard question. I agree that Ho Goo and Taek would make great real life boyfriends. There is something about a guy who is extremely supportive that attracts me. But since those two are taken, I will jump into my bag of drama men and go with Feng Teng from Boss and Me (Shan Shan Goes to Eat). He is rich, intelligent, and surprisingly not an entitled jerk. I just found him a very attractive character in personality and looks.
