And that is how the boys became men. The men with baby faces in their 20s are meeting women that are way older and living the strongest romance of their lives. The boys who met their older female counterparts are expressing their love in a naïve way at times and in a passionate way in some other ways and are shaking the hearts of the female viewers who are watching this along with their romantic mates.

Innocent Yoo Ah In Vs. Warm Park Seo Joon: Which do you prefer?

Innocent but at times reckless, tough but warm, it’s all about the younger males like Yoo Ah In in JTBC’s “Secret Love Affair” and Park Seo Joon in tvN’s “Witch’s Love.”

In “Secret Love Affair,” Yoo Ah In is as innocent and real as ever.

Understanding K-Drama: What Are They Drinking?

Social events that involve drinking are often featured in k-dramas. Whether it"s a celebration after work or a first meeting with a prospective father-in-law, you can expect k-drama characters to share a few glasses of some alcoholic beverage.

Are the dramas accurate in portraying how much people drink?

Yes, says a recent Euromonitor survey. South Koreans drink on average more than people of any other nationality. And while soju is the most popular drink in k-dramas, other varieties of alcohol are consumed.

Someone drinks soju in almost every k-drama and we"ve written about soju scenes before. This clear colorless drink serves as a vehicle for the kind of confessions a character might not make when sober or as an excuse for a piggyback ride. You may remember the scene in "Personal Taste" when a very drunk Son Ye Jin announces very loudly to everyone in the restaurant that Lee Min Ho"s character is gay
