The Distractors’ Holiday Cut: Countdown with Oppa


Down to the final two and tomorrow begins our first full official week of the 2016!!

For this Oppa, I wonder what a regular work week looks like for him. Many of the Oppas on our list are double dippers—working full time in two arenas but not all are considered charismatic, talented actors. He began as a model and transitioned into acting, which to be honest, I don’t think there’s a camera that doesn’t love him.

D*04: Favorite (Male) Third-Wheel Character

I’m not one to be swayed by the third-leg in a romantic triangle(“thirdies”). It’s very rare that I ever entertain the second male lead in dramas and I have never admitted to have ever contracted Second Lead Syndrome(SLS). Honestly, it has always eluded me, how so many fans of my favorite dramas were toiling at their computer screens crying, wishing, hoping and praying that said heroine would fall for the idiot in the corner. Not to say that some “men in the wings” weren’t wonderful like Lee Seon Gun’s Choi Han Sung in Coffee Prince or Lee Joo Hyun’s characters in both Ja Myung Go and When It’s Night, but highly unlikely I’ve  respected many “thirdie” characters or felt they truly deserved the heroine’s romantic attentions.(Plus, in some cases they were just too good for her.)

However, I can’t say I’ve NEVER been swayed. The 3rd wheel is a hard position to be in and for me, I’ve found I’ve appreciated those characters that recognized their position in the equation early on yet handled themselves well.
