5 KDramas Where The Male Leads Were Jerks But We Fell For Them Anyway
5 KDramas Where The Male Leads Were Jerks But We Fell For Them Anyway. In almost every Kdrama we watch, the male lead character is mostly portrayed to be mean and cheeky before he falls deeply in love and turns into the most loving, protective and sweet boyfriend one could ever wish for. Even though it might not be very logical to fall for a cold person who acts like a jerk, we usually end up falling for these rascals anyways.
Don’t you agree?!
Here is a list for you. Please note, they are not in any specific order.
Cheese In the Trap
Okay so let me be completely honest. Cheese in the trap left me in a state of indifference towards the male lead, I found him very mysterious and scary. Being the only son of a ridiculously rich CEO, Yoo Jung (Park Hae Jin) grew up watching everyone approach him for his connections rather than to value him as a person.
He is handsome, intelligent and successful, but secretly harbours a dark side to his personality. He is sometimes cold or manipulative and has trouble forming relationships with others because of his uncertainty that they are not using him for his money.
To make matters worse, writers made Baek In Ho (Seo Kang Joon) his second lead; who was incredibly hot and super sweet. This left us with an incredibly difficult choice.
As the storyline grew though, it showed us that it was Yoo Jung way of showing his strong emotions for Hong Seol (Kim Go-eun).
Towards the end of the drama, I found myself rooting for the once cold and rude oppa. Isn’t that some mystery?
Meeting Kim Joo Won (Hyun Bin) at first, you would assume that he was the biggest obnoxious jerk you’ve ever seen. His character is portrayed as a conceited and egotistical CEO but as the drama goes on you find out that because of a childhood trauma he has a defective memory and claustrophobia, which contributes to his rough edges.
He believed that he would never fall in love but once he switched bodies with Gil Ra-im (Ha Ji-won) his world changed.
Boys Over Flowers
Gu Jun-pyo (Lee Min-ho) is the leader of the F4 and heir to the Shinhwa Group, one of the biggest companies in South Korea.
He is very hot-tempered and believes that there is nothing that money can’t buy. Though he’s unable to express his feelings, deep down, he has a heart of gold. He torments Jan-di (Gu Hye Seon)after she stands up to his bullying ways, but ends up falling in love with her and will do anything to protect her.
His cold and hot-tempered personality made him 10 times hotter!
Marriage, Not Dating
Gong Gi-tae (Yeon Woo-jin) plays a 33-year-old successful plastic surgeon with an aggravating and annoying personality. Gi-tae enjoys solitude too much to settle down, much to the dismay of his parents
However, when he meets Joo Jang-mi (Han Groo) a 29-year-old girl who earnestly believes in true love despite her countless failures in previous relationships, he had no option than to fall in love.
That Winter, The Wind Blows
This drama was quite refreshing and beautiful, Oh Soo (Jo In-sung) plays an orphan who doesn’t care about anything after the death of his first love, he becomes a high-class gambler and playboy. Desperate to find money to repay a debt or forfeit his own life, he becomes a con artist who sets sights on a new target.
Over time it was revealed that he was longing for love to feel the empty gap in is life. After he met Oh Young (Song Hye-kyo) he began discovering his underlying love.
The chemistry the two shared was intense.
