How to make your boyfriend look like a K-drama star!
Every girl fantasizes about having a famous Kdrama star such as Jang Geun Suk, Lee Min Ho, or Kim Soo Hyun as a boyfriend. Tall, gorgeous, and talented, these guys are major heartthrobs who send girls worldwide into a frenzy! Unfortunately, most of us will not be lucky enough to actually grab one of these guys for our own. But never fear! With Halloween coming up, you can turn your boyfriend into a K-drama star (or at least make him look like one)! Even if you don't have a boyfriend right now, file away these tips for future use and enjoy the major man candy below! Check out these 6 ways to transform your boyfriend into the quintessential Kdrama guy for Halloween or any day of the year!
1. The Hair
There are a few very distinct Kdrama hairstyles for men. Whether it be the long side-swept hair like Lee Ki Woo's in Flower Boy Ramen Shop or styled and gelled back into a voluminous look like T.O.P or Sung Joon from Discovery of Romance, nice hair is the first step towards looking like a famous Korean star.
2. Guy Liner
Ever wonder what makes Jang Geun Suk's eyes so smoldering? Or how Lee Hyun Woo's eyes are so sexy? Answer: guy liner. Guy liner is such an easy way to take your boyfriend from normal cute to Korean celebrity hot! If your boyfriend will let you get close to his eye with one, run a black eyeliner pencil on his waterline and tightline (the flap of skin under his upper eyelashes) and watch as your boyfriend is transformed!
3. Statement Coat
Whether this be a trench coat like Lee Min Ho's or a long wool pea coat like Kim Woo Bin's, a fashionable statement coat is a staple in every Korean actor's closet. If you really wanted your boyfriend to make a fashion statement, you could even go for Lee Min Ho's fur-trimmed coat from Boys Over Flowers!

4. Thick-Rimmed Glasses
Dorky no more! K-drama celebrities definitely bring sexy back with these thick-rimmed glasses. Many dramas feature characters who rock the serious glasses look, such as Kim Hyun Joong in Boys Over Flowers and Yoon Kye Sang in The Greatest Love. And we cannot forget about Lee Min Ho. He's frequently seen in advertisements and dramas donning these thick-rimmed glasses. Even if your boyfriend doesn't need glasses, you can buy inexpensive frames with non-prescription lenses online!
5. Man Bag/Backpack
Everyone needs some sort of bag to tote around their stuff, so why not have your boyfriend use a drama-inspired man bag? Korean celebrities have definitely embraced these practical and fashionable accessories. Check out a backpack style inspired by Heirs or a messenger style like the one Lee Dong Wook is posing with, which is perfect for carrying his laptop!
No drama is complete without one of the male leads wearing an outfit that features a big chunky scarf. For the colder winter months, help your boyfriend keep warm by getting him a scarf like one of the ones above! Or make one if you know how to knit or crochet. For a bold look, try Kim Woo Bin's long black and white striped scarf from Heirs. Or if your guy isn't into the bold look, Kim Soo Hyun's shorter dark green scarf that he wore in My Love From Another Star is awesome as well. Paired with one of the statement coats shown above, your boy will be oozing K-drama style!
