Unlike Western movies that favor “muscular beauty”, the Korean film industry or K-Drama has many actors known as “beautiful men more beautiful than flowers” possessing non-sexual beauty, a beauty that attracts both male and female.
1. Lee Jun Ki
In 2005, Lee Jun Ki flashed with the role of clown Gong Gil in the movie The King and the Clown. The charismatic beauty of Gong Gil stunned millions of viewers and Lee Jun Ki became the iconic pioneer name for “non-sexual beauty” in the Korean entertainment industry.
Over the past 15 years, the 38-year-old K-drama actor has tended to choose roles that are heavily psychological and subject to picky audiences, so the film’s performance is often not high, but his acting has never disappointed viewers.
2. Lee Dong Wook
Lee Dong Wook is also a “prettier than flowers” actor with a charming romantic style. From My Girl, Hotel King to Goblin, the actor always attracts viewers with his outstanding charisma and his soulful sad eyes.
In the near future, Lee Dong Wook will return with the image of a nine-tailed fox in Tale of the Nine Tailed, promising to continue to delight viewers.
3. Jang Geun Suk
In 2009, Jang Geun Suk entered the ranks of famous male gods thanks to the great success of the musical idol movie You’re Beautiful besides Park Shin Hye. The flexible beauty and the romantic image of the guy have since made many people love him to the point of being called “Asian Prince”.
4. Kim Bum
Kim Bum once made millions of girls go crazy with the gentle beauty in Boys Over Flowers. Being called “a handsome man more beautiful than flowers” is an advantage at first, then it becomes a disadvantage when the audience can not forget the image of him in the famous drama.
Therefore, the more later, Kim Bum tried to choose a variety of images to escape the label of “more beautiful than flowers” and will soon work with Lee Dong Wook on Tale of the Nine-Tailed.
5. No Min Woo
No Min Woo possesses the beauty of “super handsome and redundant beauty”, delicate lines and a warm smile. The guy was expected to inherit the success of Rain when he starred Full House 2, but unfortunately the movie is a genuine “bomb”.
In Min Woo’s case, the somewhat feminine beauty makes his roles somewhat unconvincing despite playing many roles. He is currently focusing on music after his comeback with Partners for Justice 2 in 2019.
6. Cha Eun Woo
The actress, idol possesses the beauty that “ten thousand people love”, so even if his acting is limited, he still stands out. In the eyes of many people, Cha Eun Woo has the unreal look like a character straight from manga.
After Goo Hae Ryung’s Rookie Historian is heavily criticized for her acting, the actor will be returning with True Beauty. Let’s wait and see if he has improved in acting or continues to rely on “the look” to attract the audience.
7. V (Kim Tae Hyung)
