The Philippines has definitely been struck by the Korean drama fever! We simple could not resist the kind of "kilig" Korean leading men make us feel. Those romantic scenes in the rain, iconic back hugs, and soju dates... We want to be able to do these with a K-drama boyfriend!
Our favorite Korean oppas may be far away, but we think we have our own “oppa” that’s closer to us— Zanjoe Marudo! When "Goblin" aired in 2016, netizens couldn't help but notice that the "Pinoy Big Brother" alum has striking similarities with the character of The Grim Reaper, played by actor Lee Dong Wook.
They're both tall, slender, mysterious, and possess some killer looks! One thing is for sure, if there ever will be a Pinoy adaptation of a K-drama series, Zanjoe is our top pick for the male lead! Browse through the gallery above to see why! 😍
