Think of a stereotypical "manly" man who probably has a beard and wrestles bears in his free time.
How lame, right?
My favorite K-drama characters are always the ones with the quirky weaknesses and the hilarious fears.
Here are some of my favorite male characters that break the masculine norm :)
1. Yun Yunjae
In this scene in Reply 1997, Yunjae is apologizing to Shiwon for something he did. She accepts his apology and even gives him a little gift ;D
You can start watching at 1:14 for the full freak out.
2. Hwang Tae-kyung
He is a neat freak and is really, really scared of germs. He's constantly sanitizing his room and doesn't like other people touching him. When Go Mi Nam spit in his room, Taekyung nearly passed out.
3. Hwang Tae-kyung
He's back again! He's also really not good with the outdoors, as you can see by his horrified expression at 1:40 :)
4. Gu Jun Pyo
He's self conscious about his hair so he straightens it one day, he gets scared of food that he's not used to, he can't swim, and he's a really moody baby.
