Actors Who Look Like They Could Be The Heroes Of Romance Novels
While we’ve seen many celebrities who don puppy-like, cat-like, or even fox-like features, there are also many celebrities who look like they came right out of a Korean online romance novel. Many of these drama and romance novels often have illustrated book covers featuring handsome male characters. Here are a few actors whose unbelievably dreamy good looks make them seem like a perfect fit for the leads who are on the cover of these romance books!
Actor Sung Hoon radiates an impressively manly vibe, with his tall height, sharp nose, and deep eyes. He proved that everywhere is a runway when you look as good as he does through his recent photo shoot on MBC’s “I Live Alone.” He is currently starring in MBN’s “Level Up,” where he regularly shows off his excellent suit fit.

After being discharged from the military earlier this year, Lee Min Ho definitely fits the romance novel male lead bill with his handsome appearance and deep voice. While his visuals and previous dramas have helped with the gap his enlistment left in all our hearts, he will be back on the small screen in no time, reuniting with “Heirs” writer Kim Eun Sook in a new romantic fantasy drama, starring alongside Kim Go Eun.
