Everyone of us drama addicts has a bunch of actors they don’t like regardless of their talents or looks. Something about them just gives you goosebumps and you cannot analyze your utter dislike. You get annoyed and you feel personally attacked if they co-act with a cast you like or star in a drama with a striking plot. Well, I have my list. This list has nothing to do with their acting talents at all. It’s completely personal so I hope no body gets offended.
Lee Min Ho
I know how popular this guys is and I know that some people would find what I’m going to say blasphemous but I really tried. Maybe it was the first impression! I don’t know but the more I watch by this guy, the more I dislike him. There’s something about him that really drives me up the wall.
Typically and expectedly, my first drama by him was Boys Over Flowers; and how I hated the guy! His ugly hairstyle, stupid outfits added to the most ridiculous and childish character EVER! I have no idea what the two girls saw in him to fight over . And I have not the slightest clue why girls all over the world went crazy over him after that.
For Personal Taste, well, I really did not care much. The whole drama was a letdown. I don’t know why and how I finished it. That added to my dislike.
I did start Mackerel Run at one point and couldn’t even finish an episode.
Faith and City Hunter were better and I did tolerate him in both, but that was because of the characters. Both the characters of Lee Yoon Sung and General Choi Young were completely irresistible to me. I’m sure if anybody acted the role I would have tolerated him all the same.
Then he went back to square one with Heirs; which mysteriously enough for me was a world sensation -WHY ON EARTH? WHAT FOR?- Anyhow I finished the drama for Woo Bin because if he was not there, I would not have made it through episode two. Lee Min Ho did a great job at sending me back to my BOF’s feels!
With due respect to all LMH’s fans all over the world, you can have him girls!
Lee Seung Gi
I don’t know what my problem with this guy is. I know he’s talented. I’m not blind not to notice that. His voice when singing is overwhelming. But he just turns my stomach. I find myself watching his works whenever he has one because I know it’d be a great drama but I find myself after a quarter of an hour biting my nails waiting for other actors to appear on screen. It’s confusing to me as well. Maybe we were enemies in our past lives! Or maybe it’s his roles as a rude cold jerk always pushing women about and giving hell to everyone around him! It beats me!
So I watched and HATED him in Shining Inheritance– what beats me is the fact that Han Hyo Joo actually chose him over Bae Soo Bin who played one of the kindest and most adorable characters ever!. I loved King2Hearts and wished he’d fall out of some cliff and disappear after all he had done to my lovely Han Ji Won. He was really good in My Girlfriend is a Gumiho, Gu Family Book and You’re All Surrounded. I didn’t hate him as intensely, but still!
I apologise dear fans; it’s just me.
Choi Min Ho
Since my Korean journey started with Super Junior, it was normal that I would be interested in SM’s other groups and that was how I got to know SHINee. SHINee is a group like a spring breeze. It doesn’t leave a deep effect but it helps me relax and cheer up. I like the band and all the members. But since the very first MV, there was something about Min Ho that pushed me away. And whenever I watched variety shows -for SuJu members again- and he’d be there, he’d stick in my throat.
Then that complicated moment came when he acted in Medical Top Team which I was going to watch no matter what. He wasn’t bad, but got on my nerves all the same. In To the Beautiful You his character was too spoilt for me. I didn’t like the drama much and he played a large role in that. I watched Pianist and even if it wasn’t for him I wouldn’t have liked it anyway.
I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to watch him neutrally.
There are four veteran actors I cannot stand as well and they’re crazily everywhere.. As if they’re doing it intentionally. They’re Uhm Hyo Seop, Ahn Suk Hwan,Lee Duk Hwa and Kim Kap Su. Their voices, faces, gestures and roles no matter what they are drive me always insane . But I know that if I don’t watch a drama just because they’re there, I won’t be watching any. They always cheese me off but I’m going to mention the dramas where they literally put me out.
Uhm Hyo Seop is a really good actor and that makes it worse. Out of the multiple roles I watched him playing, he was the best at driving me crazy in Big Man as the psycho father and in Queen Seon Duk with his squeaky laughter and what he did to Bidam.. How I hated his guts!
Ahn Suk Hwan is just annoying for always being everywhere acting almost the same role. I hated him the most in Joseon Gunman; acting another hateful father!
Lee Duk Hwa is the most awful of all for me. His voice makes my body itch; literally. He’s always a devil. But what he did in Hotel King exceeded all my thought on evil. He got me sick to my stomach throughout. Oh the chills!
I don’t know what’s with the beast father role but Kim Kap Su as well had his share. In Blade Man and Marriage not Dating he gave me many sufficient reasons to murder him. Have no idea how his sons didn’t!
Again I’d like to emphasise that this article expresses only my personal opinion and feelings. Wonder who are the actors who get in your hair the most?!
Next time I’ll be mentioning the actresses and it’ll be a much longer list; unfortunately!
