Song Kang, Cha Eun Woo, Park Seo Joon,… who is your favorite male lead in the Korean dramas based on webtoon?
Korean dramas adapted from webtoon are getting more popular, but not all series can achieve success because finding actors who resemble webtoon characters is not easy. Let’s take a look at 9 webtoon-based dramas that left the viewers amazed by casting not only handsome actors but also those who look like they stepped out of the comic books.
Rowoon as Haru in “Extraordinary You”. Compared to the original Haru, Rowoon is taller and more manly, and of course, equally handsome.
Song Kang plays the “walking red flag” Jae Eon in “Nevertheless”. He is handsome but flirty and a somewhat toxic boyfriend, causing many fangirls to have a mixture of love and hate for him.
Let’s not say Cha Eun Woo looks like Suho in “True Beauty”, but the opposite. Because the male idol is actually the inspiration for the webtoon author to create this character.
The second male lead Seo Joon (Hwang In Yeop) also looks very similar to his webtoon counterpart, even though he was not the actor for this role that netizens thought of in the first place.
Ji Chang Wook in “Backstreet Rookie” looks as adorable as Choi Dae Hyun in the webtoon.
Park Sae Royi (Park Seo Joon) in “Itaewon Class” obviously must be included in this list. When the drama was broadcast, his iconic haircut even became a trend among male fans.
Jang Ki Yong as the 999-year-old nine-tailed fox Shin Woo Yeo in “My Roommate Is A Gumiho”. Both his face and aura look similar to the webtoon character.
Many viewers find it hard to recognize Ahn Bo Hyun when he transforms into Gu Woong in “Yumi’s Cells”. The accuracy proves how dedicated he is to the role.
Lee Dong Wook absolutely terrifies the viewers with his role as the creepy killer dentist in “Strangers From Hell“
