5 Chinese Dramas With The Most Shy & Adorable Male Leads (They’re So Lovely)

Chinese drama with shy male lead

If you’ve been watching romantic Chinese dramas for quite some time, you have to admit that the most popular ones usually feature cold-hearted male leads who are abrasive and unemotional.

It’s an entire thing and I can’t even speak to its accuracy since I haven’t been to China – but people (myself included) gobble it up time and time again without pausing for breath.

But, there are some genuinely shy male leads who are still as awesome and shine at every point in time and these dramas are just a few examples of them.

So, if you want to take a break from your icy male leads and you want to see a male lead who also blooms in a drama, check these ones out.
