Since debuting as an actor, he has showcased so many sides but has generally been the good guy.

Whether he was the caring and caring Lee Jang Woo in When The Weather Is Fine, the determined Sunwoo Joon in Do Do Sol Sol La La Sol, or even the misunderstood Baek Kyung in Extraordinary You, Lee Jae Wook has always played loved characters.

More recently, he shined as Jang Uk in Alchemy Of Souls. His character might have been cold, but he had a heart of gold.

Well, his recent role has netizens shocked as he truly epitomizes what it means to be a bad guy… but netizens can’t help simping over him, nevertheless.

One of the latest Korean films is Kill Boksoon. It stars Crash Course In Romance star Jeon Do Yeon, who plays single mother Gil Bok Soon, a lethal killer.

Lee Jae Wook makes a brief cameo as the young version of Cha Min Kyu, who runs for M.K. Ent where Bok Soon works, and Sol Kyung Gu plays his character.

While fans love Lee Jae Wook, his cold and sharp visuals made him perfect for playing Cha Min Kyu. Nobody expected him to slay the villain role that much. Even before his face was shown, Lee Jae Wook’s tone was sinister… and sexy.

The flashback was the first time he met Bok Soon… when he was attempting to kill her dad. With the dad in a noose, Lee Jae Wook had a menacing look in his eye that lacked remorse or guilt.

When Bok Soon arrived from school, even his hiding techniques (which are a massive red flag… or one of many) seemed hot AF he went into a dark place to hide.

As she entered, he confronted her with a gun. While it’s a normal bad guy weapon, fans have never seen the young actor wielding a weapon that isn’t from the Joseon era!

Although Bok Soon is a minor, he isn’t afraid to scare her a little. But he was shocked when the young girl’s attitude was far from what he expected, as the smirk slowly left his face.


In the end, even he seemed shocked and in awe of Bok Soon’s confidence, and Lee Jae Wook perfectly showcased the many sides and layers to the complicated character.

When the clips were posted, netizens couldn’t get over the new side of the young actor. While he was playing a baddie, it wasn’t surprising that many couldn’t stop simping over Lee Jae Wook.

While Lee Jae Wook is showcasing his versatility as an actor, it’s hard to see him as anything like a villain when he’s so darn sexy!
