Some actors are making their names known amid the fierce competition of weekend dramas. They are Jirisan‘s Lee Ga Sub, The Red Sleeve‘s Kang Hoon, Now, We Are Breaking Up‘s Yoon Na Moo, and Happiness‘s Baek Hyun Jin. They all clash with the main characters and exude presence as “anger-inducing” characters that add tension to the story.
First, Lee Ga Sub from Jirisan is a man Jun Ji Hyun and Ju Ji Hoon suspect as a serial killer. He was first seen as Jun Ji Hyun’s assistant but became the central key in the drama’s twist with his ambiguous attitude. On the other hand, Kang Hoon plays Hong Deok Ro, Junho’s aide, who comes into conflict with Lee Se Young, in The Red Sleeve. He has established his position as a villain from early on by revealing his ambition to extend his influence by using Junho.
Appearing on two dramas with 7% and 9% ratings, they have successfully left a deep impression on the viewers. Lee and Kang have honed their prowess, playing small roles in multiple projects for about ten years.
Meanwhile, Yoon Na Moo and Baek Hyun Jin are heating up the small screen with impudent characters.
In Now, We Are Breaking Up, Yoon Na Moo is playing the husband of Park Hyo Joo, Song Hye Kyo’s close friend. He’s inducing anger from the viewers by playing a man having an affair with his subordinate without knowing that his wife has pancreatic cancer. Thanks to his performance, his appearance as powertrip heir in SBS’s Your Honor is also gaining attention.
Lastly, Baek Hyun Jin has turned into an ultimate villain in Happiness, set in the city where the zombie virus had spread. He plays the doctor who constantly puts Park Hyung Sik and Han Hyo Joo in danger. This is not his first villain role. He played the evil boss in the movie Samjin Company English Class and SBS’s Taxi Driver.
