A: Master, Dating Agency: Cyrano
You like the nice, sweet, clean-cut type, but with a little bit of an edge. Once you taste his cooking, you're more than willing to overlook his shady past. Look forward to a future of long talks over scrumptious meals!
B. Ji Hoo, Boys over Flowers
You want someone tender and supportive. He isn't incredibly outgoing or social, but you can always count on him to be there for you when you need him.
C. Jeremy, You're Beautiful
You want someone who makes you laugh. Whenever you're having a bad day, you can count on him to make you feel better. Bonus: You can hang out with his dog, Jolie!
D. Geol Oh/ Jae Shin, Sungkyunkwan Scandal
You're drawn to rough-and-tumble types. You don't mind working a little to get past the "Crazy Horse" exterior to find the sweet, gentle man on the inside. Just be aware that you might have to spend your weekends patching up sword wounds from his late-night escapades!
E. Young Do, Heirs
When you say you like bad boys, you really mean it. In your mind, hot tempers, violence, and bullying are all just more opportunities for reform! Just be careful--while Young Do turned out okay in the end, you might want to rethink your general taste in men. (And isn't "Wrecking Ball" seriously the perfect theme song for him and Eun Chan? Just read the lyrics!)
