MY 5 FAVORITE KOREAN CHARACTERS
Let me start with that this was supposed to be a "Top 5 Characters (including Japanese, Chinese, and so on)". It was the hardest task I ever had to do. I ended up splitting it up. We can all agree that it is impossible to choose just 5 favorite characters from all the dramas that you have ever seen/currently watching. Be aware that I changed the list several times because I could not really make up my mind (still on the edge of changing it every minute).
I ended up taking the ones I remembered the names of... I am not Korean and I always find it hard to remember some of the names (I'm getting a lot better now!). No, not really. I partly thought of the names, but also how great the character was and why I thought that character in particular. So, the list below will change for me a few times throughout my life (which didn't end on the 21st of December! Yay!). I had a huge dilemma choosing.
Kim Sam Soon
Why? Easy, I fell in love with that character, because it was so different from your typical lead girl in Korean dramas. Kim Sam Soon is this "fat," strong, outgoing and cocky character. I loved every moment with her! You know how you usually get annoyed by main characters sometimes? I was not annoyed once! Instead, I was clapping and cheering! "Oh, this other girl wants me to let go of my man?" You think Sam Soon lets go? Hello no! That is why I loved her so much! Her backbone! That character is seriously one of a kind!
Cha Seung Jo
Let me introduce him with this video clip:
Why? Do I really need to say more? That character lightens up my whole day! It's so... unique!! We can all agree on the fact that he is a once in a lifetime character!
Jin Pal Kang
Why? I was seriously annoyed by that character in the first episode that I even...dropped it...Yes, I did, but I gave it another chance! This character grew throughout the drama. A strong character that works hard to at becoming her best for her family. I love that she made so many mistakes but then tried to avoid them by doing better.
Kang Ma Roo
Why? I am not the only one that fell for this mysterious man. I like how honest and caring he is. He made it onto this favorite character list because his character was different from the usual hot, rich and rude lead character. He was quite the opposite in some parts. I am hoping for a reason 2 just to see more of Kang Maru!
Choi Won Yi
Why? Hahaha. this character called her oppa "Hyeong"!! Every time she was on, I just loved it! I need a drama with her as the lead. Unfortunately, this character was the supporting role, but the most memorable one for me. Just adore her personality!
So this is currently my top 5 Korean characters! Any of them your favorite characters too? If not, comment your favorite below.
