An example would be Kim Hyun Joong in the K-Drama, Boys Over Flowers that aired in 2009. In this drama, Kim Hyun Joong ached the hearts of many K-Drama fans, as his character was so sweet and gentle compared to the arrogant and self-centered role carried out by Lee Min Ho.

Jipyeong tries and convinces her that they didn’t intend anything to hurt her. He tries to cover a little for Dosan, which is really nice of him, considering what he’s about to tell her.
