Top 6 Hottest Rising K-Drama Actors From Rookies To Stars Of 2020 – 2021
The Korean film industry is one of the fastest growing industries in the world. Therefore, every year, many new stars are created, but it must be difficult for those who are truly capable and lucky to turn from rookie to star.
Here are the top 6 hottest Korean drama actors that 2020 and early 2021 had to come up with.
Note: The list is in no particular order!
1. Kim Seon Ho
This will be the fastest rising career guy we must mention on this list. His K-drama acting career is quite short, as he debuted only three years ago in “Good Manager.” But Kim Seon Ho was acting in plays long before he debuted in a drama. In fact, Kim Seon Ho was so popular as a theater actor that people would line up in the street to get tickets to his plays. Fortunately for us, he considered a career in acting on screen and has been a blessing ever since.
ast year, Kim Seon Ho starred in “Start-Up” alongside Suzy and Nam Joo Hyuk, and the feedback on his character and role was so amazing that it was just continuing to grow. Fortunately for our fans, we can meet him often because he is a member of the variety show “2 Days and 1 Night”.
2. Kim Young Dae
Last year, Kim Young Dae was in “The Item,” “Welcome to Waikiki S2,” and most notably, “Extraordinary You.” This past year he’s also kept himself more than busy as he’s been in three dramas and is currently in the hit series “The Penthouse” as well as “Cheat On Me, If You Can.”
3. Lee Do Hyun
Lee Do Hyun’s first big break came in the fantasy romance series “Hotel Del Luna”, which plays the love role of IU’s character Go Chung Myung. This year, he starred in the romantic comedy “18 Again” alongside veteran actors Yoon Sang Hyun and Kim Ha Neul. He played the role of a younger version of Yoon Sang Hyun’s character and played an adult who suddenly transformed his physical body back to his high school in an impressively perfect way. Lee Do Hyun has the ability to attract audiences to follow his dramas. He has a genuine aura and a sense of humor that makes him very likable. He’s also a standout on many variety shows and people have noticed his outgoing personality.
4. Hwang In Yeop
Last year, Hwang In Yeop was Lee Do Hyun’s co-star in “18 Again”. After debuting last year, he has become the focus of town. He used to play bad boy roles and most recently was cast in tvN’s highly anticipated drama ‘True Beauty’. He portrays a bad boy and a cute character, which is probably why people care about him. His career was off to a strong and solid start. It was only a matter of time before he got a lead!
5. Jang Dong Yoon
Last year, not only did he dress up in women’s clothes and wear a lot of makeup to become his character who is a spy in “The Tale of Nokdu,” but this year, he bulked up to become an elite special force sergeant in “Search.” His versatility in choosing roles has put him on the map and made him loved by many. He was also recently on a variety show and the cast members couldn’t help but gush over him – we really can’t blame them!
6. Ahn Bo Hyun
The past year has been a big one for Ahn Bo Hyun. Who can forget him for the role of the villain Jang Geun Won who made his heart beat in “Itaewon Class”? Not only did he leave a pretty scary impression on viewers, but he also gave people an impression of his ability to play the evil role too well. After the drama was completed, he appeared on a number of popular variety shows and everyone could see his various charms and sense of humor. Most recently, he also starred in the mysterious horror film “Kairos” playing the role of Seo Do Kyun, a difficult boss who always doubts his boss’s intentions. The complexity of the roles that Ahn Bo Hyun continues to choose has only made his acting career much more passionate.
