Heartbreaking Second Leads Why can't they ever win!?
Even though I KNOW it is hopeless, I can't help but cheer for the "other guy" to win the girl in Romantic K Dramas (@kpopandkimchi - Drama December) and there usually comes at least one point in the show where I am yelling at the girl, "JUST PICK HIM! STOP BREAKING HIS HEART!!"
Here are some of my favorite wounded babies..
Jung Yong Hwa and Lee Hong Gi - You're Beautiful (they both broke made me cry)
Kim Hyun Joong - Boys Over Flowers (what does Gyu Jun Pyo have that Yoon Ji Hoo don't?)
Seo In Guk - Master's Sun (can't she see how protective and caring he is?!)
Kim Ji Hoon - Flower Boy Next Door (he loved her the longest and was being so patient in waiting for her!)
Yoo Yeon Seok - Reply 1994 (And please, how can you not love him?)
And this may have been the cruelest second lead syndrome trick ever! Ji Sung as Shin Se Gi - Kill Me Heal Me. I actually felt so sad for him not winning the girl... but he actually did win the girl as Cha Do Hyun ... talk about confusing emotions!!

What about you K Drama people? Do you suffer from SLS (second lead syndrome) like I do?

Who have you cheered for to "get the girl?"

I almost always pick the wrong ship so there's too many cases in which I've had sls for me to list 馃槀. To this day I am sooo bitter about reply 1994 because I was like in love with chilbong and I still can't stand to see his crying scene. To the beautiful you also broke my heart because as much as I love minho, hyunwoo was obviously the better choice

@Kamiamon Hahaha! You're Beautiful drove me crazy too, but I have to confess I still love Jong Keun Suk.

Yes!!! The second lead syndrome is real! I was totally rooting for Jung Yong Hwa in You're Beautiful, Yoo Yeon Seok in Reply 1994!!!! I was sad the leading lady chose the doctor. I guess it makes sense because their relationship is stronger after her brother's death. He's practically there to replace him but still.....:( :( :(
