18. Your least favorite female character.

Oh man. Oh man. I have so many of these. I’m just going to the first ones that come to mind because the list would be too long. Sha Zhi from MARS wouldn’t stop acting fake cute (like an annoying yappy chihuahua), but petulantly tried to get Chen Ling back to her, even when she saw how happy he finally was. Guang Xiao Fei from Absolute Boyfriend bugged me because she was so 2D for a main character. LKSDJFL:KSDJF. Pan Da Yang from Panda and Hedgehog started off so well, but became an annoying whiny character who was moody and got in the way of the bromance. Anna from Fated to Love You crossed the line when she gave Xin Yi (the lead girl) abortion papers “supposedly” from Cun Xi (the birth father) when he wanted nothing else than to keep the baby and stay married to Xin Yi. Ugh.

My least favorite female character is Ding Hui Fan from Down With Love, played by Chen Zi Han. She was a selfish actress who wanted fame and was unwilling to get married to her long-time boyfriend (played by Jerry), but then played dirty tricks to get him back when she realized he was falling for someone else (Ella). She even used the man who loved her (played by Michael Zhang) to get what she wanted, even if that mean asking Michael’s character to date Ella’s character. Ugh, so not okay!

11. Your least favorite male character.

This was actually pretty hard for me, as most of the male characters are either the leads (who you typically end up rooting for anyways) or the second leads (who are nice/guardian angel type). I guess for me there are male characters who I’m not fond of – Xin Yu from Fabulous Boys (K and I have analyzed his character quite in-depth here) and Tong Dao from MARS (he creeps me out, but the actor did a phenomenal job!).

I had to really dig for this one… I’m obviously not going to dislike the main male lead and the second leads are usually the kind/sweet guys that never get the girl, but my least favorite male character that I can think of is Chen Jian Ting from Gung Hay Fat Choy, played by Patrick Lee. He was one of the male leads that got paired with Alice Ke’s character, but Jian Ting was a rich, slightly spoiled, man who was used to getting what he wanted and having all the attention. It sounds a lot worse than his actual character was, considering it is sort of a sitcom so it was funny more than serious, but his character was still annoying nonetheless. He tried to act all macho and impress Alice’s character, and it was just too much that I had to drop the drama.
