Who doesn't love watching romantic Korean dramas? With an interesting and light plot and storyline, many Korean drama fans can't move on when watching romantic dramas.
Moreover, there are many popular actors in the lead roles, who make the audience go crazy with their actions. In fact, some male characters in romantic Korean dramas are classified as "bookies" because they are willing to do anything for their partner.

Here are some popular Korean drama titles with the busiest male characters!


The heirs

Fans of Lee Min Ho will surely agree that this actor has managed to play a busy male character in several popular dramas, one of which is “The heirs”.


Tells the love story of Kim Tan (Lee Min Ho) and Cha Eun Sang (Park Shin Hye), which describes the life of Cinderella in the modern world. The unexpected meeting of the two continues until they fall in love with each other despite real differences in social status.

However, Kim Tan is willing to do anything to make sure Eun Sang doesn't "leave" on his side, even though the woman knows their love is blocked by many obstacles.


Even when it was revealed that Choi Young Do (Kim Woo Bin), Kim Tan's childhood friend, has feelings for Eun Sang, Kim Tan did not remain silent and made Eun Sang his lover as quickly as possible so that he would not be "kidnapped"...

Craft Emmy Analysis: What Historical Series Will Rule?



Where it can gain or lose: “Pachinko” is the wildcard and could be a craft force to be reckoned with.



The series focuses on family matriarch Kim Sunja (played as a child by Yu-na, as an adult by Kim Min-ha, and as a grandmother by Youn Yuh-jung), and jumps back and forth in time as a conversation between the generations. Shot throughout Korea (which also doubled for Japan), as well as in Vancouver, Season 1 has been submitted in 11 craft categories: casting, cinematography, editing, period costumes, main title design, music supervision, period or fantasy production design, score, sound editing, and sound mixing, special visual effects. It could be competitive in most, or just a few, depending on how much viewers are pulled into the family saga.


Best bet: The cinematography of Florian Hoffmeister and Ante Cheng is one of the standouts for its beauty, scope, and immediacy. Most important, it doesn’t visually distinguish timelines. “When you see period pieces, they tend to be inaccessible, they’re presentational,” said director Justin Chon at the IndieWire Consider This FYC Brunch on May 12. “But I wanted the audience to be viscerally living this time. We used anamorphic lenses and handheld cameras to increase the immersion. We wanted it to be relatable and accessible. Anamorphic lenses allow you to get close to the characters but see their environment.”


Production design and costume design are also strong contenders. The sprawling world building of production designer Mara LePere-Schloop meticulously recreates both Korea and Japan with epic visuals and intimate detail, while costume designer Kyunghwa Chae weaves a multitude of wardrobes with impeccable detailing. But the highlight is the traditional Korean hanbok, which represents both social position and marital status, and undergoes an evolution throughout time in all manner of opulence. 


Other possibilities: Editing is also notable, especially in “Chapter 7,” which explores the backstory of enigmatic, affluent fish merchant Hansu (Lee Minho, who survives the Great Kanto earthquake of 1923. In fact, the entire episode stands apart visually (shot by Hoffmeister) with more muted colors and 1.43:1 aspect ratio. They were also aided by one-half of a “mirrored set” constructed on two continents to capture the chaos and destruction caused by the earthquake.




Enough can’t be said, though, about the ingenious main title sequence, which serves as a microcosm of family connection. As IndieWire’s Ben Travers and Steve Greene noted, “Creative directors Angus Wall and Nadia Tzuo take full advantage of the show’s electric pachinko parlor set, transforming it into a cross-generational dance floor where the central figures in this decades-spanning saga get to show themselves at their most fundamental.”

Interesting...I would have never guessed KSR designed robes


@CarolynH  thanks for sharing this. I remember in EP1, 3 & 5 of the drama this outerwear, coat & trousers  were also designed by Kim Seo Ryong. I know most of his coats he wore in the drama were KSR brand. I always love LMH's fashion choices. His character, Emperor Lee Gon of the Kingdom of Korea, is always dressed in accordance with the highest standards in looks that are fit for a king.  :ohboy2:
