4 Korean stars who play supporting roles are more famous than the main cast, but “flop” when they played the main role.
Even when they played supporting roles, these Korean stars even surpassed the main cast.
Besides the cases of Korean stars rising to success from the label of “supporting actors”, the Korean film industry sometimes has many paradoxes. That’s when actors who seemed to have succeeded with a series of supporting roles in hit blockbusters suddenly “flops” to understand once they took on the main role.For example, the following 4 cases.
1. Yoo In Na
Yoo In Na is one of the Korean stars that is too familiar to moviegoers when her name is always associated with a series of super products such as High Kick 2, Secret Garden, My Love From the Star, Goblin. However, no matter how popular she is through the supporting roles of the blockbuster series, Yoo In Na still “flops” despite every time she switches to the main role. Typically Touch Your Heart, The Spy Who Loved Me.
2. Park Hae Jin
Park Hae Jin in the role of “supporting actor” is very diverse with all kinds of roles from East of Eden, My Love From the Star to Doctor Stranger. However, his way out of the supporting role seems to be a bit difficult because Cheese In The Trap and Man To Man to recent works he starred as Forest have not been very successful.
By the time it was cast, the film was entangled in a series of controversies.
3. Lee Da Hee
Lee Da Hee once made many female leads lose “fame” because of the aura of supporting women in a series of hit works such as I Hear Your Voice, Secret, Beauty Inside.Thanks to her increasingly perfect acting ability, Lee Da Hee has starred in movies like Search: WWW or more recently LUCA: The Beginning.Although these are all titles with extremely attractive content, they all sink in a confusing way.
4. Kim Bum
Another popular national supporting actor in the Korean film industry is Kim Bum. Compared to actors of the same age like his close friend Lee Min Ho, Kim Bum’s acting career is somewhat more difficult and still cannot escape the secondary label. High Kick 1, Boys over flower, That Winter, The Wind Blows are the titles that he participated in as a supporting actor. And almost all of them are very famous. After years of efforts, Kim Bum also starred in Tale Of The Nine Tailed and Law School. However, these two titles are still not enough to help Kim Bum break through and even have a rather poor rating.
