6 worst K-drama hairstyles that ruin even top visuals: Lee Jong Suk is a “victim”

Gorgeous as they are, these K-drama actors and actresses got their visuals ruined by K-drama hairstyles so bad they became iconic.

It is important that actors take on styles that match the character they are playing, and this is no exception for K-dramas. However, sometimes, the hairstyles, while suitable, may look rather awkward on the cast members’ stunning visuals. They are iconic nevertheless, and below are some of these once-of-a-kind K-drama hairstyles. 

Lee Jong Suk

Lee Jong Suk is one of the most iconic actors on the Korean small screen, and through his various works, he always looks absolutely stunning. However, the actor did become a “victim” of a terrible hairstyle at the beginning of the K-drama “Pinocchio”.

In particular, Lee Jong Suk’s character in “Pinocchio”, Choi Dal Po, first appeared with a hairstyle so messy it can be compared to a bird nest. Luckily, he looks chic and stylish as the drama goes on, making for the K-drama classic “transformation scene”. In fact, even Lee Jong Suk himself said that he was relieved to be “freed” from his bird nest wig. 

Kim Soo Hyun

If Lee Jong Suk’s hair had been a bird’s nest, Kim Soo Hyun’s hairstyle in “Dream High” may as well be the habitat for an entire swarm. Playing a poor character with exceptional music talents, Kim Soo Hyun tried to “downgrade” his appearance in ill-fitted clothes and the aforementioned hairstyle, which indeed made sense in the context of the series. 

In addition, “Dream High” was not Kim Soo Hyun’s only brush at terrible hairstyles, as his cameo character in “Crash Landing On You” left a lot of people gaping in surprise. With a bowl cut iconic for kindergarten children, a green sweat suit, and a “crazy mind”, Kim Soo Hyun doesn’t exactly look as stellar as he does in real life. 

Heo Dong Won

For a more recent example, let’s take our case to Heo Dong Won, who co-starred with Song Hye Kyo in “The Glory”. In the series, the actor transforms into Teacher Chu, who teaches in the same school as the female lead, and has a hairstyle so bad, it attracts more attention than his suspicious attitude. In fact, Heo Dong Won’s questionable haircut was as highly-discussed as theories for the ending of “The Glory”. 

Compared to Song Hye Kyo, who also sports a similar hairstyle in “The Glory”, there was just something extremely wrong when it comes to Heo Dong Won. It comes as no surprise when his character ended up becoming an internet meme among the series’ fans. 

Lee Sung Kyung

Cute as she was, the female lead Kim Bok Joo of “Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo”, who is played by Lee Sung Kyung, also rocked a rather curious haircut. There’s just something extremely hilarious about the actress’ bob cut and blunt bangs.

Truth be told, the hairstyle looks odd, yet it fits Lee Sung Kyung and her character to a tee. In particular, it portrays Kim Bok Joo as a character that doesn’t obsess over her looks, yet manages to look bright, youthful, and lively. It creates a special charm for Lee Sung Kyung as this character, at the same time making it memorable for fans. 

Lee Si Young

In “Wild Romance”, Lee Si Young adopted an “auntie hairstyle” with a short perm. Seeing that her character is the bodyguard to a famous celebrity, it is no surprise to see a hairstyle so “gangly” and “masculine”. 

Despite Lee Si Young’s tom-boyish image in real life, her hairstyle was still deemed ill-fitted by many fans. According to these people, there are many other ways to make the actress “handsome” with a proper hairstyle instead of the perm in “Wild Romance”.

Yoon Eun Hye

Yoon Eun Hye, who is well-known for her ethereal beauty, also cannot escape from terrible hairstyles on K-dramas. In particular, she sported super messy and ill-fitted curls in “Marry Him If You Dare”, and the light brown hair color also did her no justice. 

While it is true that Yoon Eun Hye was playing a worse-for-wear character that barely scrapes by, the aforementioned style made the actress look way beyond her age. Thankfully, this was changed in later episodes, as Yoon Eun Hye finally got her well-deserved “transformation scene”
