Why do we love Bad Boys?

Nothing says K-drama like romance between a bad boy and an innocent girl -- is it the way he playfully teases her one moment and ignores her the next? Or how he leaves her waiting at a date but would fight off a gang of 20 guys to protect her? For this week's Tuesdays with Korean Stars, we've chosen three dramas featuring the baddest leading men in the business. These guys have dashing good looks, and a cold unforgiving heart -- so check them out if you can't resist the bad boy charm!

Bad Boy (나쁜 남자) is exactly what its title says, a story of revenge carried out against a wealthy family by a cold, calculated man named Gun-wook. He's played by Kim Nam Gil, who rose to fame after playing the ambitious Bidam in Queen Seon Deok (선덕여왕). Bad Boy is available to viewers worldwide, except in select countries.

Bad Boy

Boys Over Flowers (꽃보다남자) is one of the most famous dramas of all time, featuring not one, but 4 bad boys who rule over their entire high school. Millions have fallen in love with the wavy-haired leader of F4, played by Lee Min Ho. Find out if Jun Pyo's mean streak comes to an end when he meets the new girl in school, Jan Di. You can watch this drama if you're in Canada or the United States.

Boys Over Flowers

Heartstrings (넌 내게 반했어) is for the fans who can't resist a bad boy with an instrument. In this drama, Lee Shin is a talented rock guitarist, played by Jung Yong Hwa of CN Blue. This aloof and arrogant character is the opposite of what we're used to with Yong Hwa, who played the sweet, caring Shin Woo in You're Beautiful (미남이시네요). But the girl he loves is once again played by his You're Beautiful co-star, Park Shin Hye! This drama is available in the Middle East, Africa, Europe, and Australia.


There's plenty more where that came from, as the "bad boy" theme is present in the majority of Korean dramas. Stay tuned next week for more drama and movie recommendations hand-picked by the Viki Team!
