The heart-fluttering romance is mainly why I watch the K-dramas but recently, there have been so many great thriller dramas that caught my attention! Following that trend, it's not too hard to find psychopathic characters in our favorite dramas. All of these psychopaths are terrifying villains with sickening behavior but their evil aura combined with a fierce glare makes them so dangerously sexy. Let's take a look at some of the psychopathic characters who have made a great impact.
Mo Tae-goo played by Kim Jae-wook
Actor Kim Jae-wook made a special appearance in the recent drama "Voice" and took over the flow of the drama in such a short time. He was able to portray the cold blooded Human Hunter Mo Tae-goo so flawlessly that people started to look at him in different light. Actor Kim Jae-wook's psychopath is fly. Even though his character has committed such unforgivable act, he made the villain look good. His sexy fit in suit made the most stylish villain ever!
Choi Tae-ho played by Choi Tae-joon
When you watch "Missing 9" you are pretty much watching a serial killing parade performed by Choi Tae-ho. Even in the limited situation like being trapped in a deserted island, he was running east to west, succeeding in 5 kills! Despite any injuries, he survived till the end to shed blood. Just by looking at Choi Tae-joon, I am reminded of Choi Tae-ho's ruthless nature.
Lee Jae-kyeong played by Shin Sung-rok
"My Love from the Star" had many of my favorite stars such as Jun Ji-hyun, Kim Soo-hyun, Yoo In-na and Ahn Jae-hyun, so I was in an eye-candy heaven… but that Shin Sung-rok though. That slight dark circle, sharp face shape and intense glare so toxic, he created fear. This psychopath made a legendary shot as he whispered to the camera his famous line, "Take care of your health".
FYI, he found a look-alike during this drama was being aired, which is a nation famous character from the Korea's messenger service – the KakaoTalk Dog. Actor Shin Sung-rok's nickname will forever be the Psychopath KaTalk Dog.
Ryoo Tae-oh played by Lee Joon
In "Gabdong - The Serial Killer" Lee Joon was a perfect psychopath. Every time the camera caught his mad smile appeared behind the innocent eyes, all the viewers felt the chill down their neck. Lee Joon was famous for being the K-pop idol and a comic character in many variety shows but this role of Ryoo Tae-oh changed his career completely for good.
Jeong Seon-ho played by Park Bo-gum
Many of you know that our lovely Park Bo-gum as an innocent, pure-hearted boy who played the characters similar to his personality such as Choi Taek in "Answer Me 1988" and Yi Yeong in "Moonlight Drawn by Clouds". But do you know about Jeong Seon-ho in "Remember You"? In this drama, our pure Bo-geom goes to the dark side and put a knife on his hand. Blood everywhere, psychopath everywhere.
Every time there's a killer aura reflected on his adorable face, I can't help myself but awe at his acting skill. In this drama, even though he is a psychopath, you begin to pity him and see the good and the bad in him.
Nam Gyoo-man played by Namgoong Min
In 2016, this actor hit big. Until now, he was that handsome-faced actor who had the skills but just didn't get as famous like he should have been. It was "Remember" that made him join the league of famous actors and "Beautiful Gong Shim" and "Chief Kim" added more praises to his career.
Now, with "Remember", I will say straight up that Namgoong Min have made a huge impact on the history of K-drama as far as creating a psychopath character. Unlike the usual charismatic, calm-on-the-outside, icy psychopaths, this one is always on fire. Nam Gyoo-man has a huge anger issue and his personality is one where I would call it a "loser". Namgoong Min have pulled this character so well and he mentioned in an nterview later on that it was so hard to play a character so evil as him.
