So as you all know, fellow drama-ers, a lot of us suffer from Second Lead Syndrome. Which means we root for the 2nd male lead in the fight for the main girl. Here are some examples…
1. Flower Boy Next Door
Enrique is adorable and infectious, but doesn’t part of you keep rooting for Jin-Rak? I mean come on… milk post its for a year? I don’t care if he’s a con man or some evil conspirator. His love for Dok-mi is 100% genuine, and it’s so sad he’s not going to end up with her. That’s dedication, my friends.
2. Boy and Girl aka Yellow Ribbon Love (Taiwan drama)
I don’t think this drama is that popular at all. I stumbled upon it recently but I am loving the 2nd male lead!! Song Wen Qian isn’t your classic hottie but the way he earnestly looks at our leading lady, Hei You Nan, melts my heart! There was never any chance for him, but I keep hoping and dreaming.
3. Flower Boy Ramyun Shop
Ok, I root for Choi Kang Hyuk. His character was kind of weird. Smelly feet, falling asleep left and right in the middle of nowhere all the time, and cooking amazing ramyun. I also rooted for him because main lead, Cha Chi Soo just didn’t do it for me. Although most people love Chi-Soo, I just didn’t really see any significant growth in him. I actually couldn’t finish this drama because I couldn’t bare to see Yang Eun Bi, lead girl, end up with Chi Soo.
These are some dramas I can think off the top of my head. I’m sure there are lots more. I will go off and ponder some more…
