With only a few days left in the year V, O, and I thought it’d be fun to conduct a few polls. The purpose of these polls will be to sum up how the Drama Milk community felt about the dramas that aired in 2020.
For a turbulent year rife with real life villains, it was fitting 2020 gave us some of the most memorable K-drama villains yet. We got two sociopaths, a relentless royal, businessman, soldier, and husband. And a mythological snake.
They were all horrific, but the villain who scared me the most was Do Hui-jae from It’s Okay To Not Be Okay. She managed to work in a mental institution for years, successfully fooling psychologists and other healthcare professionals. And she did it just so she could torture her husband for the rest of his life. Talk about discipline and determination. I’ll also never forget the way she turned around and smiled at the security cam after adding her own butterfly to Moon Sang-tae’s mural. I get chills just thinking about it.
Baek Hee-sun from Flower of Evil was a close second for similar reasons, followed by Lee Tae-oh from The World of the Married. Any person that horrible, but is always whining about being the victim deserves to be high on the list.
With that said, who do you feel was the best K-drama villain of 2020? Vote below and let us know why in the comments.
(To keep things short, sweet, and organized, we included villains who sparked conversation from dramas that aired/concluded in 2020. Any dramas currently airing with dastardly villains will be considered in next year’s poll).
