Most Koreans have straight hair, which makes the occasional curly haired characters stand out in the dramas. Sometimes it's exaggerated, sometimes it's styling! In your opinion, who wore it best?
Kim Yoo-bin-I from "Horray for Love"
The Ssang-mun Dong Sisters' from "Answer Me 1988"
Now that I see all the curly/perm haired characters, I'd say...
the most memorable - Ssang-mun Dong Sisters, Hwang Jung-eum
the one everyone hated - Kim Go-eun
Hwang Jung-eum's bad hair was so impactful and also an important concept in the drama. I also chose Ssang-mun Dong Sisters because that Ahjumma style bowl curly hair just touches a special button in my heart. It's a bit nostalgic for me haha.
The one everyone hated is Kim-Go-eun-I. It's not that she looked terrible in it (Personally I thought it was a fresh style change for her and somewhat liked the look on her.) but all the original webtoon fans were dissapointed at the different look of the heroin.
I couldn't decide between Lee Min-ho and Cha Seung-won for the most iconic because Cha Seung-won's hairstyle in the "Greatest Love" became such a big fad in South Korea while the drama was being aired and continued afterward.
When it comes to curly hair K-drama character though, let's be honest. The first face that popped up was Lee Min-ho. His character in "Boys over Flowers" is the definition of curly hair character. Haha
Comment to share who you think wore the curly-haired character best! Also, feel free to share if there's any other I may have forgotten (:
