Man Crush Monday: Fated to Love You’s Lee Gun


Mature. Carefree. Adorable. Handsome. Geeky. Sexy. We all have different responses and respected qualities when asked, “What is your type?” or “What do you look for in a man?”

Welcome to the first edition of Man Crush Monday where, every week, a very special man will be featured for his endearing qualities that have sent girls’ hearts a-flutter everywhere around the world.

This week, this man is none other than Lee Gun from “Fated to Love You.” At first glance, he is the eccentric, over dramatic, and boisterous CEO of Jang In Chemicals, and most likely not everyone’s cup of tea. Fortunately, his strong essence is one that steadily grows on you and, before you know it, he has settled into the deepest crevice of your heart where his every intense look, every confident smile, and every grand gesture will make your heart go dugeun, dugeun.

Here are five reasons why Lee Gun is Man Crush Monday worthy (spoilers ahead!):

1. Lee Gun knows how to protect women.

“It’s me, Gunnie. Does it hurt? Please spread the rumor that I tried my best to win Miss Kim Mi Young’s heart but she never accepted me.”

At that time, Kim Mi Young was someone he had only met twice, someone who had been almost a complete stranger to him. Still, he swept into her life like a hurricane and became the hero with a genuine heart. For most, this kind of heroic rescue would have been a one-time event, especially for a man involved in a six year relationship, but for Lee Gun, this was already his second save. It came with no expectations of obtaining anything in return and when his past relationship fell apart as he fell for Kim Mi Young more with each passing day, Lee Gun made sure to continuing protecting her. Forever.

He also said:

  • “When I say that I won’t sell the factory, I mean it. That island is my wife’s hometown. My decision will never change as long as I live.”
  • “Kim Mi Young, a rough diamond like you shouldn’t be hanging out in this rubble.”
