[HanCinema's News] Handsome Male Leads Elevate "Extraordinary You"

2019/10/17 | 408 views | Permalink

"Extraordinary You" featured a mild uptick in ratings this week, breaking 4% for the first time. However, the drama has been attracting buzz from a loyal subset of fans for its decidedly handsome male leads. Kim Young-dae, Jung Gun-joo, and Lee Jae-wook have all effectively served as shadows and foils for the actual lead character played by Rowoon.

As elite high school students the four are reminiscent of the legendary drama "Boys over Flowers" from 2009. And just as that drama was a celebration of the eclectic fashion of the era, so too has "Extraordinary You" embraced the more formal style used by young men today. Aggressively clean and white school uniformswork to emphasize the subtle distinctions between the young men, just as the uniforms themselves subtly differentiate from each other.

The attractiveness of the characters is also subtly identified by the minor ways they provide exposure. Fans have observed short sleeved summer shirts as a means of showing off the impressive muscles in the male characters' arms. Other scenes featuring buttons left undone convey a meaning of mild intimacy and openness.

This ability to slightly change moods is critical for the drama, as none of the male leads is truly the main character. That honor goes to the female lead played by Kim Hye-yoon, and fashion in addition to acting demonstrates how each of the male leads has grown closer to her over time. "Extraordinary You" airs on Wednesdays and Thursdays.
