If X-Men was a K-drama
Summer blockbuster season is here, and one of the big films opening this weekend is X-Men: Days of Future Past. Any time a big ensemble movie opens, it's fun to re-imagine it if our favorite K-drama leads were in the roles instead! If the X-Men were played by K-drama stars, here's who I would cast:
1. Young Charles Xavier: Lee Jong Suk
2. Young Eric Lehnsherr: Yoo Ah In
Fans of Sungkyunkwan Scandal and Secret Love Affair know that Yoo Ah In has what it takes to show Magneto's dark side without turning him into a monster. He certainly has the charisma for the character!
3. Wolverine: Cha Seung Won
With dramas like Athena and You Are All Surrounded under his belt, Cha Seung Won has proven that he can carry an action film. Toss in his natural talent for growing facial hair and his gruff charm, and you have the perfect Wolverine on your hands.
4. Mystique: Jeon Ji Hyun
The My Love from Another Star actress has the right mixture of sexy and tough to play the conflicted Mystique.
5. Storm: Ha Ji Won
6. Rogue: Shin Min Ah
7. Beast: Song Joong Ki
8. Cyclops: Ryu Soo Young
I know that Cyclops and Jean aren't in this X-Men movie, but they're classic X-Men, so we have to include them! Ryu Soo Young has already played the nice, stable boyfriend against Lee Joon Ki's bad boy in Two Weeks, so it's not much of a stretch to imagine him here.
9. Jean Grey/Phoenix: Kim Sun Ah
Who would you choose for your K-drama X-Men? What about the other characters? Nightcrawler? Iceman? Colossus? Comment below!
