It seems that netizens’ continuing K-Drama obsession is getting bigger by the day. A day doesn’t go by without a new series gaining attention from viewers globally, and the popularity of shows is starting to rival that of K-Pop idols.
In particular, the latest K-Drama to steal the hearts of netizens is Extraordinary Attorney Woo, a story following Woo Young Woo (Park Eun Bin), who is the first autistic Korean attorney.
The new photos made netizens breathles
Yet, aside from the heartwarming story, one member of the cast has seen their fame rocket from the series, and it’s none other than Kang Tae Oh, who plays Woo Young Woo’s love interest Lee Jun Ho.
Although Kang Tae Oh has been acting for many years, this role really brought eyes to the actor, showcasing not only his talent and charisma but his undeniable visuals. When he’s just relaxing, he’s well known for his boyish charms…
Even on the show, Lee Jun Ho has the vibes of someone you would happily introduce to your family. He is sweet, caring, and has this “Boy next door” look.
Well, it seems like Kang Tae Oh has once again shown another side to him and his dazzling visuals. With his rising fame, Korean publications have been fighting to get the actor on the cover of their magazine, and they’ve definitely delivered.
The first photoshoot teaser that caught netizens’ eyes was with GQ. In the previews of the editorial, Kang Tae Oh is showing a more masculine look that has true “sexy boyfriend” vibes. Not only is he showing a bit of skin, but he’s showing off his more sultry and mysterious vibes.
ELLE Korea was the next pictorial that captured the hearts of netizens as the actor continued with a more mysterious and sexy vibe. With a mix of red and more minimalistic colors, the angles and effects of the photos created something worlds away from the loveable Lee Jun Ho.
The more punk-inspired outfits with rips and a more street-style contrast to the cleaner cuts from the first photoshoot. Yet, it still has the sexy and sultry feel that netizens love.
When the photos were released, it unsurprisingly sent the internet into meltdown.
