Dear friends,

 

Welcome to part 2 of our Halloween event!

 

We all love our evil characters in dramas, be it the mean 2nd lead, the corrupt cop, the harsh and uncaring chairman father, the sageuk character who refuses to die (cockroach Yeom in Empress Ki, anyone?) or the anything but dreamy mother- in-law....

Evil fits Halloween perfectly, so let's highlight these characters and actors who often play evil characters?

 

We have three questions:

 

1. Which oppa is best at playing evil characters?

4109baa6d947b3589a46da305a211f688664e906

This guy was so evil, he became a KakaoTalk emoji....

 

2. Which unni/noona is best at playing evil characters?

20190110000835_0.jpg

Anyone in need of a private tutor....?

 

3. Who is the most evil mother / mother-in-law?

dbe6cf921774191598f051ce5b6a510c.jpg

Even her kids are scared of her - lol

 

There are so many evil characters in k-drama land, we weren't able to fit them all in a poll (especially the evil mothers and mother-in-laws :joy:). We therefore had to choose the most famous characters and the actors who have played multiple evil roles. We apologize therefore if your favorite evil character isn't included.

 

A thank you again to @Sleepy Owl dongsaeng for the help! :kiss_wink:

I can fit 3 more unnis in the poll, so if you give me the name of the dramas they played evil characters in, I can add them to the poll. :glasses:

 

Unfortunately because of technical limitations we can only fit 20 names in each question. The other questions (oppa & MIL) have already 20 names.

1. Evil Oppas 

 

1. Choi Won Young

 

I chose him as the first option, since I have watched a lot of his dramas and he sure acts really well in evil roles. He was a crazy business man in Mad Dog, he was quite evil in Dr. Prisoner (was crazy too, and actually had mental problems), a psychopath in Hello Monster and now a cheating husband in My Dangerous Wife, not to forget the evil Seok Oh Won in Alice too. This guy's name in the list of actors for any dramas makes me wonder that he is the ultimate baddie in that drama or atleast is not so good guy in it. 

 

But he sure has done some really good guy roles which makes more versatile as an actor. 

 

2. Jung Woong In

 

He played Yeom Byung Soo the cockroach in Empress Ki, do we need more of a reason to add him? Well I didn't see this guy for the first time in Empress Ki. It was in "I can Hear Your Voice", he was the evil killer after both ML and FL. The extents to which he went in that drama to hurt both FL and ML showed he determined and evil he actually was in it. Of course he did have a sad story in that drama, but it did not mean he could be that evil in it. He then continued his role in "Switch" where he was the smart evil guy who was quite perceptive and was hard to fool. 

 

3. Bae Soo Bin

 

Bae Soo Bin is not really a new face to evil roles. He has been doing evil roles for a long time and has done them really well. His latest work in Graceful friends was among his best performances. Played the guy who hires a person to seduce his friend's wife (who was his ex-gf) in order to break their marriage, things not really go well this plan and he falls lower and lower in his attempt to break their marriage, while also feeling disgusted with himself. There were some scenes where the viewers could see him hating himself for it, feeling bad for backstabbing his best friend like that, but still doing it and those scenes were extremely well acted by him. 

 

He was also not so good fiancée in "49 Days", cheating on his fiancée with her best friend. He was also not really the good guy he believed he was in Secret, where initially his fiancée covers up for him for the hit n run murder he did, and then we see him falling for the temptations of money, fame and luxurious life. 

 

Saw him for the first time in Emperor of the Sea, in which he initially appears as an ally to the ML, but then turns out to be the ultimate.   

 

4. Kim Jae Wook 

 

The only negative I saw him in was Voice 1, and although I was going to choose Shin Sung Rok for his evil roles, I thought the impact Kim Jae Wook had on the audience with his single evil role (the only one I know) in Voice 1 could not be ignored. For me, he raised the bar too high with his role of executioner type serial killer that even after so many years and watching so many similar dramas, I still did not find a performance getting near to this one. 

 

2. Evil Noonas/Unni

 

1. Kang Han Na

 

She is not new to evil roles. Seeing Kang Han Na in dramas usually means she is the female baddie in it. Although she has started doing some FL roles, which actually is a good thing for this talented actress. But she sure knows how to act evil, while looking so beautiful and cute (Nothing can be compared to Baek jin Hee's single performance as Tanashiri though). 

 

So I saw her for the first time in "Scarlet Heart: Ryeo" and she played the not so innocent Princess in it, who is quite power hungry. First she pushes her brother to fight for the inheritance of the throne, but then when she realizes he is not really that fit for it, changes side and follows the ML and gets married with him. Her evilness hidden behind those smiles, the plotting she did and the manipulative nature of her in that drama simply made her one of the best among the evil characters of that drama. 

 

She was also not so good wife in Familiar wife. Also currently in the "Start Up" she is playing the not so good sister in this drama, although I do think that this role will not be as evil as her previous roles. 

 

2. Lim Ju Eun

 

She is Se Mi in "Lies of Lies" I think this is enough to add her to my list of evil Noonas. Although there are many others who I would choose over her, but her role as Se Mi annoyed me a lot. Good thing ML's mom smacked her in the head. So her role as Se Mi sure could be evil, but was quite irritating and annoying. Her delusions were the highest, and well, she did cheat on her husband, and didn't really think it would be a reason for him not getting back with her. 

 

She played the second evil queen in Empress Ki too, I'd say she was much more dangerous than Tanashiri, as she was quite manipulative and calculating one in this, and Tanashiri let's say was more impulsive. The quiet ones are the most dangerous ones, and she was pretty good in scheming things and making things tough for Nyang in this drama. 

 

3. Kim Seo Hyung

 

Kim Seo Hyung, the evil lady in SKY Castle which I actually didn't watch, will watch it very soon. But saw some clips of her in it. She also played the evil Dowager Queen, the smiling Old Evil Lady, scheming things in order to have absolute power in the inner palace. She initially looks to be an ally, but well as we move forward we realize she is actually an evil old lady and well she does play dirty in that drama. 

 

4. Yu In Young

 

Yu In Young's negative role in Mask was very memorable for me. She did some more evil roles too, but played a good one "Good Casting" and I really hope to see her doing some good roles. 

 

Saw her in many dramas doing not so good roles, and the most memorable one for me was her evil role in "Mask". 

 

 

3. Evil MIL/Moms

 

1. Kim Ho Ran (Lies of Lies)

 

Since this is among the latest dramas I have watched, I find this lady very evil. She has her Daughter in Law imprisoned for murdering her son, does not really let her try to prove innocence in court by buying the witnesses, makes her time in prison and after taking her baby, has that baby dead. This woman does not really have a heart, shows herself to be very kind in public eyes, cares a lot about her public image and well, is actually very evil. So for me, she tops this list. 

 

2. Evil Mom in It's Okay Not To Be Okay

 

All those who watched this drama, knew how evil this woman actually was. Has her daughter traumatized, is more than protective for her daughter not letting her meet anyone or have friends. There a lot of things about this woman which makes her scary and evil at the same time. The revelation of her must have been very surprising (it was for me) and well, this woman is not normal, if I say more than this then it will be spoiler. 

 

3. Yoon Sung Sook Emergency Couple

 

Her role in Emergency Couple was memorable one and quite annoying. This actress sure does know how to act evil as moms and MILs. But none of these would be as memorable role of her to me as her MIL role in Queen of Mystery. In it she played the seemingly evil MIL, but is proved to be kind and loving one. But yeah, her role in Emergency Couple was very irritating and evil. 

 

4.Park So Ha Pinocchio 

 

The kind woman and mother of the character turns out to be the evil one. What else can be more shocking here. She is initially shown as a very warm heated and kind woman, but then slowly slowly we get to know and see her true colors. Her role as evil woman in Pinocchio was really good and the only evil role I have seen from this actress. I believe she must have done some more evil roles, but since I was used to in seeing her playing the kind old lady/mom roles in many dramas, found this role of her amazing.

lol :D I was kicking myself for only allowing 4 choices per question. I had a REALLY hard time narrowing down my own choices, because I wanted to vote for 6 people in each category. :D Especially the MILs - there are so many great MILs in k-dramas....

@Sleepy Owl Agree about Bae Soo Bin - he's a really really really good actor too - he is awesome conveying his feelings through micro expressions. It's a bit of a pity he has become typecast, because he would be great in a lead role! :heart4:

 

For me, I just had to vote for Jung Woong In. :D This guy is really the worst in Empress Ki - I just finished watching the 51 episode drama and he died in the last episode.

I can't believe how this guy was able to survive for almost 51 episodes. Guy even survived the plague! :unamused:

His character was nicknamed the cockroach by our re-watch group - and he deserved it. :D

This one was a particular challenge for me, because just by fluke, I was far more familiar with male villains/antagonists than females ones in K-dramas (in other words: the vast majority of evil unnies or evil mothers are from shows I haven't seen, so I can't vouch for them).

 

However, I don't mind sharing my choices for the Evil Oppas (in order of appearance on the poll):

 

1. Choi Won Young (wouldn't have picked him if it weren't for his recent performance in Alice, to be honest - he just kept me guessing whether he was good or evil most of the time, and the actual truth was revealed in a satisfyingly wicked manner)

 

2. Shin Sung Rok (for My Love from the Stars, obviously ;))

 

3. Park Ki Woong (Gaksital still gets me, to be honest - that dark turn from a kindly schoolteacher to what he became was...damn!)

 

4. Jung Woong In (just a great veteran villain actor all around)

 

As for female characters, I actually think I prefer the female leads who end up turning dark (e.g. Kim Tae Hee as Han Yeo Jin in Yong Pal) rather than straight-up villains. Maybe it's because, as a girl myself, those characters feel more real.

@partyon Thanks for including pics!  :D 

 

@katakwasabi Last Empress characters all the way, for all the clips of it I've seen before! :lol:

 

Shin Sung Rok for donning that colorful clown wig, and how cold his eyes can be is such a contrast. I remember laughing my head off how he screamed  of fright at the amusement centre. ;)

you should watch more daily/weekend dramas because there you see more multi-faceted women characters. basically those leads are willing to explore the dark side and aren't as one dimensional kind. off the top of my head, I liked twinkle twinkle -- it has kim hyun joo and lee yoo ri and basically it is about these two women battling it out. liked that the lead wasn't some pushover and needed the guy to help her out. the second lead was psycho but wasn't a complete one-dimensional nutso and there was some great layers..

a daily I really enjoyed for its complex feelings about women and motherhood -- the good, bad & ugly -- was "am a mother too"; the villian/anti (red dress) had the most interesting turn around in the last 1/3. quite a complex role..

Yay, new poll:hooray:

Tyvm for tagging me @partyon.

 

Hmmm....limited vote but so many gaesaekkis and shipsaekkis to choose.

 

These are some of my selections of Kdrama villains :

 

■Nam Goong Min in Girl Who Sees Smells

nam-goong-min.jpgYour usual psycho underneath all that excellent manner and refined appearance. But boy, he's so suave.

 

■Kim Ji Hoon in Flower of Evil

70e0168f92ad97a16da6917e0ec253cc03bd8f5e

He doesn't have to say anything. You just need to look at his eyes to see that he's deranged and vicious.

 

■Park Si Yeon in Innocent Man

images?q=tbn:ANd9GcTvR6j_88aHC1dgKMw2up6

The shameless greedy femme fatale.

 

■Yoon Se Ah in The Good Witch.

@sadthe1st ITA with you about Yoon Se Ah in The Good Witch. That old drama may be a bit cliché, cheesy and makjang-ish (IMO). But Yoon Se Ah really slays in this drama. Oh Tae Ri is one of the most savage villainess unni I've ever watched in Kdrama-land. Her acting is so convincing sometimes I find myself literally wanting to strangle Oh Tae Ri:sweat_smile:

■My version of The Evil Mother Quartet

Just let me put it this way ; if you're unfortunate enough to have these witches above as your mother/mother in law, IMO nobody would blame you if you seriously consider migrating or moving to another continent as life option.

I've only watched one sageuk so far, and it was Empress Ki. I thought it was normal for sageuks to have such a large number of villains in it, but seems Empress Ki takes the cake. :D

 

We had Tanashiri, El Temür, cockroach Yeom, Talahai, Tangqishi, Wang Goo, the second empress, the empress dowager, the two court ladies, and a lot of secondary characters. There were only a handful of good people in the drama, now that I think about it. :D

@croquembouche2018 chingu, great choices! :heartxoxo:

Glad to see that I wasn't the only one who voted for the mom in Something Happened in Bali! :D That woman was really vile towards the FL.

 

My number one vote for the meanest mother / MIL would go for the ML's mom in Bel Ami (Pretty Boy). It wasn't that she was mean towards the FL (played by IU) and viciously tried to protect her own son from his love interest....

She was the meanest and coldest mom to her own son (played by Jang Geun Suk).... The way she treated him when he was trying to find her and once he discovered she was his mother, was unusually cold and vile.

I cried so much in some of the scenes. :tears: To be rejected by your own mother like that. :cold_sweat:

 

Therefore, even though it wasn't the most popular drama of all time, I had to include this evil mother in the poll...

Unluckily my choices are not in the list, so I vote for

  1. Zin tae Hyun in left handed wife and Choi Sung-jae in A place in the sun (evil oppas)
  2. I think the worst female villains are Yura in A man under a veil, the second female lead in My perfect life, the second female lead in Sunny again tomorrow, 
  3. Evil mother in law, all of the mothers in dailies lol, examples are Home for summer, A man under a veil, sunny again tomorrow, My only one, Love is wonderful life is beautiful, I lost count

lol :D I was kicking myself for only allowing 4 choices per question. I had a REALLY hard time narrowing down my own choices, because I wanted to vote for 6 people in each category. :D Especially the MILs - there are so many great MILs in k-dramas....

 

 

@Sleepy Owl Agree about Bae Soo Bin - he's a really really really good actor too - he is awesome conveying his feelings through micro expressions. It's a bit of a pity he has become typecast, because he would be great in a lead role! 

 

For me, I just had to vote for Jung Woong In. :D This guy is really the worst in Empress Ki - I just finished watching the 51 episode drama and he died in the last episode.

I can't believe how this guy was able to survive for almost 51 episodes. Guy even survived the plague! :unamused:

His character was nicknamed the cockroach by our re-watch group - and he deserved it. :D

 

Yeah well, I am sure it is very hard for many people here to choose the top 4 from all three lists. Even I had a hard time doing it :joy:.

 

About Bae Soo Bin, he has some really good roles in Dong Yi and Jumong. I want to see him doing more good roles. He sure knows how to act, is a lot experienced in it and I really hope to see him as ML in future. It is good to see Namgoong Min and Shin Sung Rok actually getting ML roles now and not being just remembered just for their evil roles. Hope same happens to him too.
