Actors Ahn Hyo Seop, Nam Joo Hyuk and Song Kang are enthraling audiences with their ‘Drama Boyfriend Image’. The three performers have one thing in common: at the start of their careers, they were known for their ‘boyfriend photographs’ on social media. However, as their identities were revealed, only ‘promotional photographs’ remained on their social media accounts, causing disappointment.
In the drama ‘Business Proposal,’ Ahn Hyo-Seop plays a third-generation CEO of a conglomerate who makes viewers’ hearts flutter. In the drama, Kang Tae-moo kept confessing without giving up, even when corporate employee Shin Ha-ri (Kim Se-Jeong) thought he didn’t fit in with her normal self and pushed him away. Kang Tae-moo said, “Babe!” and displayed the sweetness of being Shin Ha-Ri’s fake lover when Shin Ha-ri was in a tough circumstance to introduce her boyfriend to her friends. Viewers were captivated by Ahn Hyo-Seop’s colourful acting, which ranged from a cool suit fit to cheerfulness and seriousness, comedy and melodrama.
In the drama ‘Twenty Five Twenty One,’ Nam Joo-Hyuk‘s portrayal of Baek Yi-Jin, who grows up despite the disappointments and difficulties of hard reality, moved viewers. He does not escape reality, tries to produce a better society as a reporter, and is faithful and trustworthy to his beloved Na Hee-do (Kim Tae-Ri), despite his family’s collapse owing to his father’s business’s bankruptcy due to the IMF. It displays a young person dealing with the difficulties of life in a realistic manner.
Song Kang played an intelligent forecaster who shook the heart of Jin Ha-kyung (Park Min-young), a powerful director at the Korea Meteorological Administration, in the drama “Forecasting Love and Weather“. ‘Song Kang expertly depicted the exhilaration and dizziness of in-office romance, as well as the heated sensations of love, at the start of the drama. Even after he had broken up with Jin Ha-Kyung, he softly expressed his undying love for Jin-Ha-Kyung.
At the start of their careers, Nam Joo-hyeok, Song Kang, and Ahn Hyo-seop, who grew up as ‘drama boyfriends,’ earned notoriety with the ‘boyfriend meme.’ He garnered female followers by stressing his friendliness and warm-hearted imagery, such as eating rice or walking along the street, using ‘boyfriend photographs’ captured during their regular life.
‘Boyfriend images,’ on the other hand, are steadily disappearing from their social media accounts. Still images and pictorials abound on Nam Joo-Hyuk’s social media accounts. Only ‘official’ images of Song Kang and Ahn Hyo-seop are progressively being uploaded. As those who utilised private images to communicate with fans became more popular, their relationships with fans deteriorated. The management firm’s name appeared to include the word management as the name got more well-known.
The SNS area, which previously featured ‘people’ rather than ‘stars’ of those famous for ‘boyfriend images,’ has been reduced to a publicity tool. This is why it’s such a tragedy that the boyfriend photo of those who ‘intended to save’ has vanished (1).
