Posted March 15, 2023 by Rowena in Features | 0 Comments

I’m a list person. I have a list for every single thing in my life from a to-do list, a list of books that I want to read, a running shopping list, and in the next few weeks, I’ll be sharing different k-entertainment lists that I’ve been keeping track of. You’ll be seeing my top 5 lists of stuff like my current celebrity crushes, my favorite k-drama female protagonists, my favorite k-drama male protagonists, my to-be-watched k-dramas, and you know, stuff like that. I love me a strong female lead but I’m also here for the strong male leads that be kicking ass too.

This week’s Wednesday Five will feature my favorite strong male leads that I love from all of the k-dramas that I’ve watched so far. I talk about all of these guys a lot on the blog, with the exception of Han Ji Hyuk from The Veil but just let it be known, I hella love all of the guys on this list. These are the guys I’d choose to put on my team if I needed to kick ass.

1. Kim Do Ki from Taxi Driver

Where to Watch: Viki
Starring: Lee Je Hoon

2. Jang Uk from Alchemy of Souls

Where to Watch: Netflix
Starring: Lee Jae Wook

3. Yeon Shi Eun from Weak Hero, Class 1

Where to Watch: Viki
Starring: Park Ji Hoon

4. Ko Dong Man from Fight for My Way

Where to Watch: Viki
Starring: Park Seo Joon

5. Han Ji Hyuk from The Veil

Where to Watch: Viki

Every single one of these guys kicked some serious ass in their respective shows. They’re all fine as hell and I’m a huge fan of their characters. If you haven’t watched any of the shows that they’re in, pleasea fix that if it’s your jam. Lots of action, mystery, suspense, and hot guys!

Who are some of your favorite strong male leads?

Eye Candy Friday: Ko Dong Man

Posted August 28, 2020 by Rowena in Features | 0 Comments

Eye Candy Friday is something that I’ve been doing since I first started my personal blog way back in 2003. That first personal blog is long gone but I’ve never really grown out of the eye candy phase. I’m always up for some eye candy. Whether it’s a character from a book (male or female, I don’t discriminate), a character from a movie or TV Show, if I loved them and want to gush about how much I loved them, you’ll find them here. Thanks for coming along for the ride.

This week, I’m featuring Park Seo Jun as Ko Dong Man from Fight for My Way. Itaewon Class is my top Korean show but Ko Dong Man is probably my favorite character that Park Seo Jun has played so far. He plays the charming, lovable airhead role so well and Dong Man was my absolute favorite part of this show. His character would have charmed me right out of my pants. The way that he cared and supported Ae Ra through every little part of her life and just wanted her to love and support him back was just too precious for words. That’s a huge part of why he’s this week’s Eye Candy Friday. The other part of the reason is that he’s just so stinkin’ good looking.

Here are some pictures from my favorite Dong Man scenes from Fight for My Way, for you to enjoy. Check it out.

In this scene, he’s giving his best friend, Ae Ra, privacy to cry because she just received some bad news and he knows she hates crying in front of people. *swoon*

In this scene, he just lost his temper and beat the crap out of some guys because they were messing with Ae Ra and were trying to rough her up because she lost her temper on them. He went to jail and she defended him so fiercely in there that she made him cry and he’s hugging her to show his thanks and to cry without her seeing.

Dong Man used to be a mixed martial arts guy but gave it up after some family drama. After he stopped fighting, he worked stupid job after stupid job and just wasn’t satisfied with anything until he finally wises up and decides to live the rest of his twenties for passion. So he starts fighting again and this scene is directly after his first fight back. His ex-girlfriend all of a sudden wants to be with him again and you didn’t know which way he would turn until this scene. The first person that he wants to see after his very first fight is his best friend, Ae Ra…who is crying because she hates seeing him get hurt and so she went to support him at his first fight but couldn’t bear to watch it so she prayed with her eyes tightly shut for him not to get hurt and this is him going to her afterward to reassure her that he’s okay. And that he won.

And this scene had me cracking up. Dong Man and Ae Ra are out eating dinner and Ae Ra starts whining in her little baby voice that is supposed to be cute and get Dong Man to do whatever she wants but instead he answers her in the exact same whiny voice and pisses her off instead. LOL.

This scene is my favorite confession scene. He wasn’t messing around anymore and he was faithful to Ae Ra, even before they were actually dating. If you’re in the mood for a fun and charming best friends to more drama, you should check this one out.

You’re welcome. Until next week…enjoy!
