We are going to talk about 5 Badass Actors playing the Strongest Characters in Korean Drama land. These characters are so powerful and strong they destroy their enemies without (almost) any effort. These types of shows can lack suspense but it’s so satisfying to watch the main character so blatantly whup everyone. We’re talking about 10 vs 1 and it’s not even close from beginning to end. A lot of Korean dramas start with a weak lead who through training and tragedy becomes a badass over time. These aren’t one of them. These leads are badass and are their Strongest Characters from the start in their Korean Drama.
