6 Charming Actors Who Perfectly Suited The Beauty Of Their K-Drama Characters
Are you ready to see life imitate art? There are many actors who qualify as beautiful boys in K-dramas, but they aren’t always given the opportunity to play handsome characters. Stars like Cha Eun Woo, Rowoon, and Park Bo Gum are some of the lucky few who have been able to portray roles that also mirror their own appearance. Here are the stars who have similarities with their gorgeous characters.
“True Beauty” – Cha Eun Woo
Webtoons come to life when this beautiful actor takes over! “True Beauty” and “My ID Is Gangnam Beauty” were both based on popular webtoons, and Cha Eun Woo played the leading roles of high school student Lee Su Ho and college student Do Kyung Suk, respectively. Both characters are gorgeous, intelligent, and reserved. Cha Eun Woo mirrors most of those things in his private life as well. Besides being gorgeous, he proves his intelligence through his expert career choices in acting and music. He is loved for his stunning appearance in the boy band ASTRO, and fans continue to swoon during his K-drama appearances. Cha Eun Woo is a jewel in the industry!

“Live On” – Hwang Minhyun
Hwang Minhyun is a former member of the boy band NU’EST, and he took on the role of the cute Go Eun Taek in “Live On.” High school student Go Eun Tak is a perfectionist, conscientious, and is the very cute head of the broadcasting department. Being a longtime singer and actor, Hwang Minhyun probably pays close attention to detail, but it is difficult to be as far of a perfectionist as Go Eun Tak. Nonetheless, fans have to agree that Hwang Minhyun shares the leading man’s good looks. Go Eun Taek is written to be attractive, and Hwang Minhyun doesn’t let anyone down. His careers in music and acting help him excel in the broadcasting field in real life. There is no one else who could have fit the role better than him!
