Drama Guys to Meet: If You Were Still in School


If youre still in school, is there that one guy you really want to meet? If you are already out of school and could go back, what type of guy would you like to meet?

Over the next several weeks, we will focus on “Drama Guys to Meet” — the types of guys we wish we could meet from our favorite dramas. In our first list, we travel back to high school and college to find these fun characters that we would love to meet.

The Smart/Class President Type

Who can resist big brains, especially when the brain comes packaged with a pleasant face? Some of our favorite smart boys include:
  • Baek Seung Jo (played by Kim Hyun Joong), the tall, good-looking, most-popular guy in school who also gets perfect scores on all his exams in “Playful Kiss

  • Lee Sun Joon (played by Park Yoochun), a brainiac with the highest of ethics and morals in “Sungkyunkwan Scandal” 

  • Jeon Seon Woo (played by Kang Ha Neul), the class president who also can serenade any girl with his velvety voice and musical talents in “Monstar


The Wild and Confident Type

Admit it. We sometimes want to meet the boys who have a bad streak in them. Here are some of our favorite wild boys:
  • Goo Joon Pyo (played by ultra-hot Lee Min Ho), the cocky leader of the F4, a group of the four richest, best-looking, but also trouble-making boys at an elite high school in “Boys Over Flowers

  • Yoon Seol Chan (played by Yong Jun Hyung), a hot-tempered idol star who is forced to go back to a regular high school to repair his bad-boy image in “Monstar


The Sweet and Innocent Type

Innocence and naiveté can have their allure, especially in our favorite school characters. Here is our favorite sweet and innocent type:

  • Song Sam Dong (played by Kim Soo Hyun), the sweet-tempered boy who aspires to enter the entertainment industry in “Dream High

The Devoted, Attentive and Protective Type

Who doesnt want to meet a boy who will do anything for you. If that makes us narcissistic, then so be it! Here are our favorite devoted types:

  • Park Soo Ha (played by Lee Jong Suk), who as a boy pledges to protect the older Jang Hye Sung and then grows up to keep his promise in “I Hear Your Voice

  • Zhou Zhen (played by George Hu), the tough gangster’s son who will do anything to safeguard the woman he loves in “Love around


The Sporty and Active Type

We all appreciate rippling muscles and tremendous athleticism. The sporty boys we would love to meet from our favorite dramas include:

  • Kang Tae Joon (played by Choi Min Ho of SHINee), the elite high-jump athlete who suddenly must face the reality of suffering a career-ending injury in “To the Beautiful You

  • Shen Ruo He (played by Mike He), the unstoppable leader of the champion basketball team at East Sun College in “Bull Fighting”
