Let’s take a look through these Korean high-teen male leads who have made people heads over heels in love recently.
Although they are no longer of school age, these Korean actors still manage to grab the audience’s eyes for their stunning and youthful appearance when playing the role of a high schooler.
Choi Woong (Our Beloved Summer)
Appearing as a student in only the first episode of “Our Beloved Summer”, Choi Woong (Choi Woo Sik) still made the audience go “crazy” with his cute yet laid-back look. Breaking the usual popular high school sweetheart stereotype, Choi Woong is neither good at studying nor having a cold or warm personality.
He is the student ranking last at school, extremely “sharp-tongue” and likes to tease the female lead. Although not perfect, Choi Woong helps the audience take a stroll down the memory lane to their school years.
“Our Beloved Summer” is a comedy romance drama following the story of young people’s first love, which is unfolding when they are forcibly summoned back together due to the popularity of a documentary they filmed together in high school.
Seok Hoon (Penthouse)
As a rich, talented, and extremely handsome boy, Seok Hoon (Kim Young Dae) once made the audience of “Penthouse” lose their mind over him. If he hadn’t followed his sister to bully his classmates, Seok Hoon would have been the most perfect high-teen character on the Korean screen.
Fortunately, he soon realized his mistake, fixed it, and saved his image in the audience’s eyes.
“Penthouse” tells the real estate and education war happening in a 100-floor penthouse between an unreachable queen, a ‘Prima Donna‘ full of desire who devours everything, and a woman who is speeding up for the upper class. They have huge greed which is hard to fulfill.
Lee Suho (True Beauty)
Although Cha Eun Woo‘s acting is quite “boring”, it is impossible to exclude his character Lee Suho from this list. He is one of the model high-teen characters in the high-teen dramas.
Not only extremely handsome, as the top student in academic achievement, Suho is also very good at sports, considerate, and kind to everyone.
“True Beauty” is one of the most looked forward webtoon adaptation to drama this year. It is one of the numerous adaptations of webtoon into drama in 2020. “True Beauty” webtoon has fans all across the globe and they are eagerly waiting for this drama.
Seung Yoo (Melancholia)
Not including Seung Yoo (Lee Do Hyun) of “Melancholia” in this list would be a big mistake. As it is not a drama about teenage love, the time Seung Yoo appears with the image of a student is not much, but it is still enough to make the audience fall in love.
He is a math prodigy who is extremely talented. Viewers also admire Seung Yoo for the scene where he dares to oppose the negative education system to protect his teacher.
“Melancholia” is a drama set in a private school that is a breeding ground for preferential corruption and follows the relationship between a math teacher and a math genius student.
