These K-drama female leads were considered ugly in their respective shows, yet are played by the most beautiful actresses?
Korean actresses who got chosen for female leads in romantic series are usually the most gorgeous in the industry, and some are even considered “the epitome of beauty”. For some reason, however, the male leads seem to be always blind, and these actresses are always said to be “ugly” within the context of the show.
Goo Hye Sun
The most noticeable case is no other than Goo Hye Sun and her role as “Boys Over Flowers”’ Geum Jan Di. In the series, Jan Di is always being compared to other characters and dubbed as plain and unattractive.
This is funny, because Goo Hye Sun looks totally youthful, pretty, and fitting in the school setting.
Han Ga In
In “Witch Yoo Hee”, Han Ga In’s role is described as an unattractive, creepy girl who always wears black and never manages to attract any guy.
But in real life, Han Ga In is among the top visuals in the Korean showbiz, and guys are drawn to her like moths to fire!
Son Ye Jin
Son Ye Jin’s character in “Personal Taste” is described as an uncouth girl with an average appearance. Sure, the actress might not look stellar in several scenes, but how can one look at Son Ye Jin in her youth and not fall for her?
Song Hye Kyo
To the characters of “Full House”, apparently even Song Hye Kyo looks hideous!
The male lead, in particular, thinks of her as ugly and graceless, and even treats her like a servant. Seriously, there must be something wrong with their eyes, because Song Hye Kyo looks downright stunning with her lively and youthful charms.
Kim Tae Hee
Despite being an almighty royal member, the female lead of “My Princess” is described to be of lesser look compared to the second female lead Park Ye Jin. This is questionable, because this character is played by the “standard of beauty” Kim Tae Hee, and no amount of sabotage can make the actress less outstanding.
