The two most attractive male leads on the Korean small screen today, Ahn Hyo Seop and Nam Joo Hyuk, have more in common than people think.
A drama gaining more popularity means that its actors are given extra attention, especially the handsome male leads. Long-time K-dramas lovers are no stranger to Ahn Hyo Seop and Nam Joo Hyuk. In addition to the fact that they are both handsome men who have excellent looks and are the most popular among the audience today, these two guys have a few other interesting things in common.
Both have similar faces
It is not uncommon for actors of the Korean film industry to have faces that remind viewers of someone else. With Ahn Hyo Seop and Nam Joo Hyuk, it is no exception when both are considered by many viewers to have similar faces.
These two handsome men have faces that remind people of the other. When putting the two images close together, the similarity is also about 70% – 80%. These two can definitely pass as brothers!
Now you can tell them apart quite easily when looking at the two, but in the period from 2016 to 2020, it must be said that Ahn Hyo Seop and Nam Joo Hyuk are exactly the same. If you want to differentiate between the two, you can only look at the eyes to guess.
Both are Lee Sung Kyung’s screen lovers
Besides the similar faces, this interesting thing in common is really impressive – both Ahn Hyo Seop and Nam Joo Hyuk are lovers on screen of the beauty Lee Sung Kyung. As for Nam Joo Hyuk, not only did he fall in love on screen, but he also had time to actually date Lee Sung Kyung in real life. This handsome 1994-born male co-starred with Lee Sung Kyung in Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo in 2016 and Ahn Hyo Seop fell in love with the beauty in Dr Romantic in 2020.
The two’s collaborations with Lee Sung Kyung both gained impressive results. Their dramas received favorable responses from the viewers and also helped them become more famous. One more thing in common is that the couples Nam Joo Hyuk – Lee Sung Kyung and Ahn Hyo Seop – Lee Sung Kyung were both nominated for Best Couple Awards at the year-end drama award ceremonies hosted by MBC and SBS. Unfortunately, these two couples couldn’t hold the trophy in their hands despite being loved by many audiences thanks to their great chemistry.
Both are the “hottest” K-drama male leads at the moment
Last but not least, both dramas led by Nam Joo Hyuk and Ahn Hyo Seop are drawing huge attention from Korean viewers. “Twenty-five Twenty-one” has come half of its way and Nam Joo Hyuk is still captivating more fans with his amazing performances as Baek Yi Jin. Baek Yi Jin is definitely the model of a boyfriend that all the girls want to have in their life.
Baek Yi Jin is handsome, kind, and delicate. He is not only well-mannered but also knows how to take care of people around him. Although Nam Joo Hyuk still received criticism for his acting skills, many viewers also commented saying he has portrayed the character Baek Yi Jin quite well.
In contrast, Kang Tae Moo, Ahn Hyo Seop’s character in “A Business Proposal”, has a completely different personality to Baek Yi Jin’s. Kang Tae Moo is a good-looking, talented and rich CEO. He’s too confident to the point that makes him look a little arrogant in the eyes of others. Unlike Baek Yi Jin, Kang Tae Moo doesn’t know how to treat women in a sweet way although he cares for them a lot. In short, Kang Tae Moo is quite a perfectionist.
If Baek Yi Jin represents youth love, Kang Tae Moo is like a vitamin that makes people feel happy and refreshing. Kang Tae Moo’s nickname is also one of the highlights in the drama that helps Ahn Hyo Seop left a memorable impression on the viewers.
It is undeniable that Nam Joo Hyuk and Ahn Hyo Seop are the two hottest actors of the Korean drama industry in the first half of 2022. Thanks to their impressive acting, “Twenty-five Twenty-one” and “A Business Proposal” are doing so well as they keep breaking their own rating records. That’s why the audiences are looking forward to more interesting stories and developments in the upcoming episodes
