I’ve watched K-dramas for so many years I’m almost inured to how insanely good looking the actors are and many who have equal talent to boot as well. Recently two dramas had me doing double takes and marveling at how those actors really filled up the screen with their height in ways that captivated my attention more than before. I’ve always dated tall guys and Mr. Koala is nearly 5’11” but I think anyone taller than me personally would be fine. As actors, I find any actor over 6′ really commanding onscreen and over 5’10” is plenty enough height to use that as an asset when acting. With that said, 6’2″ Nam Joo Hyuk went FULL VISUAL in Start-Up, it started when he dressed up to pretend to be letter Nam Do San and then the last four episodes his glow up after the time jump had me totally giggling like a school girl he was so ridiculously good looking.
On Kairos, Shin Sung Rok and Ahn Bo Hyun are killing it in their roles but their equal 6’2″ height makes their antagonist conflict so equally powerful onscreen that wouldn’t work nearly as well if they weren’t so tall together. So I decided to do a full assembly of the tallest K-actors working right now and capped it at 6’2″ because there is already over a dozen that height and taller, since there is like 2 dozen more in the 6’1″ and 6′ category. The tallest three are 6’4″ tall Kwang Soo, Lee Ki Woo, and Yoon Kyung Sang, then comes 6’3″ Ro Woon, and finally all those tall dudes below the jump. Among the group the only two I couldn’t believe were 6’2″ were Ahn Hyo Seop and Joo Ji Hoon, both are models when they debuted but for some reason (maybe because they are so skinny) they don’t seem that tall.
I think good things only come with hard work, and that includes romance/life partnership/marriage. It’s not supposed to be easy and that shouldn’t be reason enough to eschew it, especially if the fall back option is being lonely potentially for … Continue reading
Boy does the title of this drama hit on every partnering nerve. I’m sure there are true diehard romantics out there but the thought that Love is Annoying But I Hate Being Lonely driving people to pair up is probably … Continue reading

This is one drama casting where I’d keep three out of four choices and ask for a substitute. But since it’s a done deal I’ll still check it out because both male leads are always worth watching. Ji Hyun Woo … Continue reading
I really like K-actor Ji Hyun Woo and it’s strictly for his expansive performing talent. The musical actor underpinnings are an added bonus but as a K-drama leading man he’s delivered a spectrum of leading men types all to perfect … Continue reading
