Forget About ‘A Man In Finance With Blue Eyes’, Let’s Focus On The Men Written By Women


Can you imagine playing a Taylor Swift or The Weeknd song the whole time, but your Spotify wrap has a TikTok sound in the year-end playlist? We are talking about the ‘I’m looking for a man in finance, trust fund, 6’5, blue eyes’ sound. I know a lot of you must be wondering what I’m even talking about. So let me explain.

Last month, the comedian Girl On Couch posted a video on TikTok with the comments, “Can someone make this into an actual song, please?” and “Did I just write the song of the summer?” That’s when she slightly impersonates Alexis Rose’s (from Schitt’s Creek) voice and sings the line, “I’m looking for a man in finance, trust fund, 6’5, blue eyes”. It wasn’t long before our generous reel music makers beatboxed remix noises over it and Stan squad started making fan edits over it.

This song is definitely going to be featured in some of the cringiest Gen Z moments to ever exist on this app. “Blue eyes,” “trust fund,” and “6’5” – all together seems like the most unrealistic expectation from that sex, but men in general have weird expectations from women. The question is why are we even asking men to fill in these boxes and glorify them?

The men who actually deserve the spotlight are the fictional ones written by women. Well because, reality is kind of doomed. Men written by women is more of a delusion.

The reason why most women adore the men written by female scriptwriters and authors is that these men are meticulously designed to be the embodiment of a woman’s desire, which is significantly better than the finance guys of the internet. And despite being so illustrious and remarkable, these guys are not flawless; maybe that’s why they need to be celebrated a bit more, especially the one written by Jane Austen (personal favourites). In case you are looking for an example, scroll down for our favourite men written by women.

Lee Jun Ho: Extraordinary Attorney Woo

i will find you in an instant.

Lee Jun Ho is Mr. Charming at the Hanbada Law Firm. He had our hearts in a chokehold from the word go. Remember his first scene where he assists the main character, rookie attorney Woo Young, in passing through the building’s rotating doors on her first day at work? Yeah, that worked. His lending of a patient ear as Young Woo talks about whales at the wee hours of the morning has set the bar pretty high. His character gives us hope that someone will always be willing to love us.
