Bad guys! Sometimes we love them, sometimes we hate them, either way they are often memorable. Come join us as we chat about our favorites and be sure to let us know the characters you love to hate in the comments.
DAY 14: Drama villain that you loved to hate or sympathized with.
KdramaJen: The absolute craziest villain ever was the psycho from The King 2 Hearts. That was one messed up guy. I also despised the villain in Gu Family Book. Now, villains that somehow captured my heart would include Yeo Woon from Warrior Baek Dong Soo. (He really was a victim of circumstance and redeemed himself, so it’s all good, right? We forgive him for his misguided youth as an assassin, right?)
CLKYTTA: Nam Gong Min in The Girl Who Sees Smells, I loved him even though he was evil, something about his smile just gets me. He plays a bad guy so well, but I’m really enjoying him playing a good guy in Beautiful Gong Shim.
Drama Geek: Hands down my favorite villain is the serial killer from I Remember You. **SPOILERS IF YOU HAVEN’T WATCHED THE SHOW** The writer managed to have the good guy sit and sip tea with the bad guy and it was the most intense and totally off scenes of the show. They sipped tea and discussed murder like it was football or something. Plus, the bad guy helped solve crimes with them, and they made a totally awesome (yet creepy) team. And D.O. did a fabulous job at portraying the serial killer when he was young. Honorable mention goes to the bag guy from Faith. I honestly wanted him to win half the time, just because.
KMUSE: I have to agree with I Remember You. They were so well developed and I was constantly shaking my head about how disfunctionally awesome they all were. I would also give a shout out to the great bad guy Mishil from Queen Seon Deok. I love when I find a successful bad guy that also happens to be a female. Also, when we are on the topic of female villains… Hong Joo in Mirror of the Witch is a pretty dynamic bad guy as well. I can’t say she is an all time favorite since the show is still ongoing, but she has the chance to be put up there in the future.
So many bad guys and so little time to list them all. Did we hit on your favorite? Be sure to let us know and check back tomorrow for new challenge questions.
See you tomorrow,
