If Slipknot getting promotion because of Korean dramas seems totally unrealistic to you, think again!

Thanks to Na In-Woo — the South Korean actor who plays the male lead in hit Prime Video K-drama series Marry My Husband — bands like Slipknot, Black Sabbath, Guns N' Roses and AC/DC are getting some exposure in a world that you wouldn’t immediately associate with rock and metal.

Na In-Woo is currently enjoying success from his breakout role in the much talked about and globally successful drama and his Instagram followers (which currently sit at 1.7M) are growing by the day. He’s using his new-found popularity to post… guitar covers of Slipknot’s “Duality” and “Unsainted”? Yeah, you read that right.

Listen, as a lifelong fan of rock and metal and a newer (I started watching them around 2021) fan of Korean dramas, I was as surprised as anyone when I saw the video of the actor from my new favorite K-drama covering “Duality” on my Instagram feed.

In his latest videos, Na In-Woo has cut off his face (much to the chagrin of many fans) to show only his hands and the guitar and is wearing a T-shirt of the band he is covering.

Upon further inspection, the actor has also posted guitar covers of “Paranoid” by Black Sabbath, “Back In Black” by AC/DC and “Nightrain” by Guns N' Roses to name a few. You can see them all below.

In recent years Korean popular culture has exploded in popularity globally so much so that the phenomenon has a name: hallyu or the Korean Wave. Everything from K-Pop and cuisine to skincare and film have become known and loved around the globe.

Often Korean celebrities will share different parts of their personality with fans via social media and to see the male lead from a wildly popular series choose to share metal guitar playthroughs with fans is interesting at the very least.

I'm sure plenty of rock and metal fans might be wondering why Loudwire is posting about a K-drama actor. The answer is simple: It's cool to see bands from our community find a place in mainstream culture like this across the globe.

Plus, as a fan of both metal and K-dramas it's fun to see crossover like this, And, judging by the comments on Na In-woos covers, I'm not the only one out there who appreciates both art forms.

If you find this upsetting you can go read another article and have a nice day. If you want to see the actor's metal guitar playthroughs or learn more about Na In-woo and the success and plot of Marry My Husband (no spoilers) then keep scrolling.
