It’s no secret that many K-drama characters are talented.
Whether they’re supernatural beings, gifted geniuses, or just really skilled in what they do, it’s always fun to watch these characters use what they have to solve the problems that surround them. So let’s imagine, just in time for Halloween, that you suddenly find yourself in the midst of a zombie apocalypse. Brain-hungry zombies are everywhere, basic supplies are depleting, and you need someone to watch your back. Which K-drama character would you actually call upon to help you survive? Would it be based purely on skills and power? Or do skills not matter as long as you’ve got a nice face to console you as the world ends?
