Top 25 Korean Actors I love

Updated on May 14, 2017

Korean Actors Love

I don't remember exactly when it happened but I really enjoy watching korean films and tv shows online.

As long as a movie or drama has a plot that interests me I don't stop watching till its finished.

And as you can imagine since I am a fan of these shows I also love the actors and actresses.

So I decided to share with the community my love for them and I hope you will enjoy it yourself as well.

In this hubpage I will share with you my top 25 Korean Actors I love and I hope you will love them as well.

These are my top 25 Korean actors I love

How I got to know them and my favorite films and drama series they are playing in.

I hope you will share my love for them when you get to know them as well.

Kwon Sang Woo

When I started watching korean cinema and tv series I didn't know a lot about the actors they were playing.

I just enjoyed the good script and acting.

And as a matter of fact in the beginning I wasn't watching any tv series at all just films.

That's when I first encountered Kwon Sang Woo.

My first movies with him were My Tutor Friend and Volcano High.

As I enjoyed them a lot, I tried and found more.

So Love, So Divine and Almost Love were two movies I enjoyed as well.

Then I said to myself; why not giving a try to watch some drama series.

Even though I didn't have a lot of time I decided that it would be worthy of my time so I have started watching drama series since 2006.

So when Cinderella Man and Daemul have aired I watched them.

It was a great decision as I loved the plot and the character he played very much.

I still haven't finished watching Medical Top Team yet but it is in my priorities. I can't wait as well for mystery queen to finish in order for me to binge watch it.

However I can't seem to like the plot of his rest of drama series because I really hate melodramas.

Lee Min Ho

I first saw Lee Min Ho in Boys Over Flowers.

He did a great job portraying his character there.

He made me think he was really a rich, spoiled brat.

I laughed and cried with him and from then on I have started to look for dramas and films he was acting.

So I have watched Our School's E.T., Mackerel Run, I Am Sam and of course all his most recent and best works at the moment they aired Personal Taste, City Hunter, Faith and The heirs.

Lee Joon-gi

What can I say about him.

I don't remember when I first watched him.

I think it was in My girl or The clown and the king, but I am not so sure.

The thing is that it doesn't really matter when I got to know his acting because since then I totally liked him and started watching everything he was acting in.

My favorite of course is Ijimae and I really hope he will act again in a historical drama.

Park Yoo Chun

You may think I am saying the same things again and again but what can I do.

Since I really enjoy watching their acting what different can I say.

So for this actor as well I enjoyed his playing from the first time I have seen him in Sungkyunkwan Scandal and wanted to watch more of him.

So from then on when a drama that he was acting started airing I couldn't stop myself from watching it.

Now I must admit I haven't really enjoyed Miss Ripley though because I didn't like the plot of the drama and stopped watching it half through it.

Choi Si Won

I have first noticed him and laughed with my heart at Attack on the Pin-Up Boys.

Then I saw him in Legend of Hyang Dan, which I also liked.

My interest of him then started to grow. I have found out his name, that he is a member of super junior.

I have heard him singing by watching a video clip of super junior.

I liked him as a singer as well as an actor.

From then on I have watched everything he took part in. Oh my lady, Skip Beat, Athena Goddess of War, Poseidon and The king of Dramas of course.

I enjoyed the character he played more in Oh my lady and Skip Beat I think.

That doesn't mean he didn't do an excellent job in Poseidon and The king of Dramas.

I hope in the future he will continue acting in interesting dramas for all of us.

Joo Ji Hoon

I don't think there is anyone who says he is a korean drama addict and doesn't know our favorite prince.

Princess Hours really did him wonders. I can't think of anyone else that could play better his role there.

I was sad when I have found out about his drug problem and felt relief when I learnt he repented and he is clean.

I enjoyed his film I Am a King and can't wait to finish watching Medical Top Team his latest drama.

In the future I am planning to watch the rest of his movies and dramas, Antique, The naked kitchen, The Devil and Five Fingers.

Gong Yoo

As I have mentioned in Joo Ji Hoon module that no one could play better the role of prince, the same goes for Gong Yoo in his role in The 1st Shop of Coffee Prince.

From then on I have watched him in Biscuit Teacher and Star Candy, almost all his films such as My tutor friend, S Diary and Finding Mr Destiny.

As well his new drama Big. I can't wait to watch him in Dating Agency: Cyrano.

I would like to find his old dramas as well if possible like One Fine Day.

In the future I am waiting from him new exchiting roles.

Lee Dong Wook

I am terribly sorry if you think I am repeating myself but what can I do.

This actor really deserves it. He played Gong Chan so well in my girl that I don't believe anyone could play better.

And as it happened with Gong Yoo and Joo Jin Hoon from then on I have started watching Lee Dong Wook in every film and drama he was playing into I could.

So far I have watched Partner, Scent of a Woman, Wild Romance, The Perfect Couple and

Heartbreak Library and I can't wait to watch The Recipe, The Fugitive of Joseon, The Story of Kang-gu and Hotel King.

Hyun Bin

I have seen Hyun Bin in some films and dramas before I learnt what his name was.

I don't know why but I didn't care. That doesn't mean I wasn't satisfied with his acting or anything or that I haven't liked him as much as I have for the previous actors.

Its just that it was a perion in my life that I was extremely busy, was stressed and when I watched dramas and films all that it mattered at the time was for me to relax and laugh a little.

I learnt his name after watching secret garden.

Then I was so mesmerised by his acting there so I have started watching his dramas and films from the beginning.

So far I have watched besides Secret Garden, My Name is Kim Sam-soon, Worlds Within, Daddy Long Legs and A Millionaire's First Love.

In the future I am planning to watch Ireland, The Snow Queen, Friend, Our Legend and his newest The Fatal Encounter.

I really can't wait for this because I really love history dramas and as King Jeongjo is my favorite Korean King I can't wait to see how he will perform.

Jae Hee

What can I tell you about him.

I admire him because first of all he continued being an actor.

For those who don't know he was a child actor.

And something I understand is that it isn't easy to continue an acting career after that.

Secondly I respect him because he didn't published his marriage and his son to protect his family.

And thirdly and not least I enjoyed watching him acting in Delightful Girl Choon Hyang, Witch Amusement and Color of woman.

I haven't watched One Mom and Three Dads and May Queen yet but they are in my watching list.

I hope in the future he will continue entertain us with more interesting roles.

Love So Divine (English Subtitled)
Love So Divine (English Subtitled)

Definitely a story to re-watch. I enjoyed immensely! Ha Ji-Won as always, a great performance. Kwon Sang-Woo, excellent. I think the moral of the story was even though he chose the girl, he still maintained his love for God.


You can take a glimpse in this movie here

      Jo In Sung, Joo Won, Song Joong Ki - I admire these three because they aren't afraid to portray unordinary roles that will require them to look so undesirable, idiot, or whatsoever

      Kim Woo Bin - for making us love and believe that secondary characters or "second man" is as lovable and important in the story as that of the leading character

      Eric Mun, Jo Jung Suk, Ji Sung - for the passion they always give to their projects, small or big

      Yoon Doo Jun - for the very realistic portrayals

      I love Korean actors and Korean dramas. I failed the quiz because I haven't had the chance to watch the Korean dramas you've mentioned. I feel giggly just reading your lens.
