7 K-drama second leads to fall deeply in love with

Sure, the leading man usually gets the girl, but that doesn’t mean the other guy never deserves a chance.

True K-drama fans would know how the “second lead” plays a key (and often difficult) role in the story: He’s the shoulder to cry on, even when he’s going through problems of his own. He also doesn’t fail to notice the main character’s worth, which usually gives the leading man something to think about.

So, in honor of all the hopeless romantics out there looking for something to watch, here are 7 K-drama oppas who will surely make you feel loved and cherished this Valentine’s season.

Yoon Ji-hoo in “Boys Over Flowers”

Ah yes, the angelic second lead who may have started it all.

Almost a direct contrast to the spoiled and arrogant Gu Jun-pyo (Lee Min-ho), Yoon Ji-hoo (Kim Hyun-joong) is the kind-hearted F4 member who swoops in and saves Geum Jan-di (Koo Hye-sun) many, many times.

Han Ji-pyeong in “Start-Up”

“Start-Up” sparked a worldwide debate last year—all thanks to one “Good Boy.”

While a lot of people couldn’t wait for Seo Dal-mi (Suzy) and Nam Do-san (Nam Joo Hyuk) to succeed and live happily ever after, a large group of fans can’t help but root for his worthy contender, the selfless and kind-hearted Han Ji-pyeong (played by Kim Seon-ho).

Go Chung-myung in “Hotel del Luna”

“Hotel del Luna” is about the mysterious owner of a magical hotel who caters to spirits and prepares them for their journey to the afterlife.

Watch out for a character named Go Chung-myung (played by “Sweet Home” actor Lee Do-hyun): He might seem like a traitor at first, but he will later defy your greatest expectations.

Kang Shin-woo in “You’re Beautiful”

“You’re Beautiful” is about a young woman who ends up living her twin brother’s life as a member of an all-male rock band.

Go Mi-nam (Park Shin-hye) is forced to stay in one house with the charming yet hot-headed lead singer Hwang Tae-kyung (Jang Geun-suk) and drummer Jeremy (Lee Hong-ki) who grow suspicious of who she is and what she’s up to. Luckily, her troubles get a little bit easier, thanks to the band’s kind-hearted bassist Kang Shin-woo (Jung Yong-hwa).

Choi Young-do in “The Heirs”

“The Heirs” is about a group of privileged high school students who hope to take over their families’ business empires one day.

Cha Eun-sang (Park Shin Hye), who is constantly at odds with the handsome Kim Tan (Lee Min-ho), manages to bring out something special in their fearsome schoolmate Choi Young-do (Kim Woo-bin), who is actually quite intelligent and misunderstood.

Baek In-ho in “Cheese in the Trap”

Another K-Drama that will give you “second lead syndrome” is “Cheese in the Trap.”

It’s utterly heartbreaking to see Baek In-ho (played by the handsome Seo Kang-joon) go after Hong Seol (Kim Go-eun) who falls in love with his greatest enemy Yoo Jung (Park Hae-jin).

Sam Maek-jong in “Hwarang”

“Hwarang” is where one of our favorite oppas, Park Seo-jun, serves us some historical drama realness as the warrior Moo-myung.

He does, however, have some fierce competition in Sam Maek-jong (Park Hyung-sik) who is not shy about expressing his feelings for the beautiful Ah-ro (Go Ara). – RC, GMA News
