Beyond personal charms and common interests, there are many qualities we look for in a boyfriend — Does he keep promises? Does he care about you? Does he love you just the way you are? Many popular romantic dramas have given us ideal boyfriends who may or may not exist in the real world. If you could choose, which drama-land boyfriend would be your favorite?

Since this is DramaFever, naturally we'll pick our selections from Asian dramas. Feel free to post your ideal boyfriend or prince charming in the comments. (He doesn't have to be only from a K-drama or Chinese drama!)

REMINDER: These ideal boyfriends aren't ranked by who's best. They are simply listed as examples of boyfriend qualities. So please don't feel slighted in behalf of your ideal boyfriend if he isn't included. Just post your comment to include him.

Let's start!

1. Ahn Min Hyuk (Park Hyung Sik) in Strong Woman Do Bong Soon - Where else can we find such a charming boyfriend who accepts you for who you are, even when your superpower can accidentally hurt him?

2. Ahn Min Hyuk (Park Hyung Sik) again! - He'd even take a hit for you when he sees danger coming. (Of course you'd do the same for him too, right?)
