Top 5 Kdrama Eccentric Male leads


Since I started watching the Korean remake of Fated to Love You, I started thinking back of some of the best Eccentric male leads. Not all jerk Chaebols are from the same cookie cutter. Here are some very special, unique male leads that I wanted to applaud for their fun spin on their characters.

5) Mr. Clueless 

Jun Pyo from Boys over Flowers (played by Lee Min Ho)


If you could only define clueless with a person, stick Jun Pyo’s face right there. Everything about him is ridiculous, from the hair to the clothes… to the cute little laugh thinking a girl who hates him really must like him. He’s a jerk at first, but you forgive him quickly when you realize he has no idea what he’s doing and lives in a very delusional sheltered world.

4) Mr. Spoiled Super Star

Dokko Jin from The Greatest Love (played by Cha Seung Won)


I quickly got on board with his laugh. At first I thought, what is with this guy? I soon loved how different he was. He like a spoiled super star and little kid rolled into one. His personality also added to his eccentric charm.

3) Mr. Track Suit Man

Kim Joo Won from Secret Garden (played by Hyun Bin)


Oh the track suits. So many horrible outfits. What’s great about it, is how much he loves them. He doesn’t realize how ridiculous he looks. Not only did Hyun Bin pull off this character perfectly, but he was also very convincing with the body swap. I really enjoyed watching him playing a woman trapped in a man’s body.

2) Mr. Hand Gesture

Joo Joong Won  from the Master’s Sun (played by So Ji Sub)


I love Joo Joong from the ridiculous hair and tight short bright pants. What killed me the most was his hand gestures as he would say “Ga-ja”. He was charming but also very silly.

1) Mr. Drama Queen

Lee Gun from Fated to Love You Kdrama- (played by Jang Hyuk)


Alright, we are only a few episodes in and already we can see just how insane and over the top Lee Gun is. I knew he would be funny, but I don’t think I was fully prepared for him to be this dramatic. He seems to react to everything in an over the top way. His personality and appearance are very loud (hair, laugh, clothes). What I like so far though, is he also seems very sincere and has a very loving heart.


So who are some of your favorite eccentric male leads? Did I leave out anyone you think should be included?

    how can such oppa exist ?
    i truly could not stop thinking about how adorable how manly that dude and his character were
    did u know that he sings 2 ?


  2. Oh My! Except for ‘Fated to Love you’, i’ve watched the rest of the dramas! Their weird eccentric traits made the show more lively.


  3. I love Korean movies and have an entire collection. Kim Jee-woon and Chan-wook Park are among my favorite Directors, while I regard Kang-ho Song, Byung-hun Lee, and Min-sik Choi as some of the finest actors operating today. However, I’m not that well-versed with Korean TV shows, and more so, it’s very difficult to find them here in India. Could you recommend some?


      1. It’s pretty intense, but you might like Chuno. It’s an intense historical action drama with some romance. Great for men or women. The acting is some of the best I’ve seen, and it has my favorite actor Jang Hyuk as the male lead. The first half is a little slow but then it picks up in the last 10 episodes. The cinematrography is gorgeous. There are impressive action scenes and so much heart.
