You can call it second male lead syndrome or a love for bad boys with the hope they can be fixed, but O-M-G these two can make you forget all about their evil murderous ways. First up we have Jung Gyu-Woon as Lee Kang-Joon the husband/ex-husband of the beautiful Sara (formerly Sa Geum-Ran) who not only cheated on the poor woman, but ran her car off the road in an attempt to kill her so he create a new life with his mistress. Tsk. Tsk. Just look at that face. I can’t say that I blame Sara one bit. At first I would have fell for him too, especially when he proceeds to date his ex-wife who had plastic surgery and is now unrecognizable. He falls for the woman who is comfortably familiar, but still new and exciting. I don’t want to spoil anything, but I don’t see that happily-ever-after thing working out for our Lee Kang-Joon.

Next on our list may be my new bias. Be still my heart. Han Sang-Jin as Han Min-Hyeok the evil half brother of our main character Han Tae Hee and the illegitimate heir to Winner Group. These two men work together while Han Min-Hyeok is definitely the alpha male who calls the shots. Birth of a Beauty toys with our emotions by making us believe that he is just another wealthy lonely man looking for someone to love. He becomes smitten with Sara (like all the other men on the show) and tries to win her affection. His family has a tragic back story & you want to cheer him on, but once he discovers the truth he choses to embrace the evil that has always surrounded him. While he is a calculated businessman I must give props for his brilliant mind. Our Han Min-Hyeok is cold alright – cold as ice.

Who’s your favorite bad guy in dramaland?
Hallyu or the Korean wave is alive and well within the United States, particularly in Texas, where the K-pop movement has developed in hopes of being noticed by South Korea entertainment agencies. Hallyu is about more than k-pop though, it is a love of Korean culture along with their heart wrenching k-dramas, skincare, make up, & oh so delicious food. Residing in good ol’ San Antonio, Texas poses its own logistical challenges. Amazon, Drama Fever, & Hulu might be our best friend, but if we would like to see a k-pop group live or buy a variety of beauty merchandise then we must drive to Houston or Dallas or if we’re lucky enough only two hours to Austin! *Gasp* My goal with this blog is to explore San Antonio (along with the surrounding areas) & seek out the most friendly Hallyu people and places. So subscribe, follow, and comment to stay connected. Kamsahamnida or 감사합니다!
