K-drama Friday Club #2: Arrogant Male Lead~


Here I am with the second week of KFC and it is going to be about Arrogant Male Lead that is basically in most kdramas. Again, since there are lots of dramas with Arrogant Male Leads, I am just going to talk about a few of them. Unfortunately I have some bad news to tell you guys~ From the 13th of March to the 18th of March, I wouldn’t be able to blog because my brother is going to England for a robot competition with my laptop. So I’m going to miss one KFC the week after next.

Often in Kdramas, there are Arrogant Male Leads but they would also show a sweet of soft side of them to the female lead. In this post, I’m going to list (as much as I remember) the cute and sweet stuff the guys do to the female leads and I’m going to award the “Big Ol’ Softie Award” out of the list below~

T^T I’m going to miss it.

Who do you guys think is the biggest Softie in dramaland? I pretty sure many of you is still recovering from the ending of Man From the Stars so I hope this post can be a help^^ Thank you for reading and I hope you like it:D
