Like I said in Day 17, I can’t ever have one favourite drama character. I’ve already seen too many dramas, and love characters because of their different personalities. It’s like making me pick a favourite food – I can’t. I want my mac n cheese and my tiramisu, my steak and my blackberries.
Current Favourite Male Character: Akiyama Shinichi from Liar Game
Played by Matsuda Shota, Akiyama is a brilliant ex-convict who is drawn into the “Liar Game” by a naive college woman named Kanzaki Nao. He saves her (and multiple players) over and over during the game. He’s adept at psychological warfare and a mathematical genius, and retains a cold-detached persona for most of the series. However, he does reveal bits and pieces about himself over the seasons. I think part of the reason I like him so much is because of his intellect – he reminds me of Sherlock Holmes. I also appreciated the lack of noble-idiocy 😛
My favorite male character in an Asian drama would have to be General Choi Young from Faith, played by Lee Min Ho. Surprise much? Haha 😛 So minus the part where he kills people without batting an eyelash, Choi Yong is the perfect guy! He’s faithful, skilled in martial arts (which can never be a bad thing), will protect you with his life, intelligent, and not to mention attractive! ❤
