I like how you say this :laugh:...this is going to be hard for me since I have 1001 oppas...but since the condition is that it must also be good projects that I would recommend all to watch


K actors...

1. Jung Kyung Ho - Life on Mars, Prison Playbook, Hospital Playlist, Heartless City

( for me JKH is the top of the list as these dramas are my favourites and really worth watching especially Life on Mars and Prison Playbook. JKH is fantastic in his delivery)

2. Lee Joon Hyuk - A Poem A Day , 365 Repeat The Year , Stranger/ Secret Forest  ( S1 & S2) , Designated Survivor 60 Days

( The selection here are some very good dramas that showcase how versatile an actor he is. He can play goofy & cute to smarmy & disillusioned!)

3. Kim Ji Suk - My Unfamiliar Family , Top Star Yoo Baek, Children of the 20th Century

( KJS early in his career was well known for playing goofy comical supporting characters. These I have listed here shows you that he can also take on heart fluttery leading man roles!)

4. Lee Je Hoon - Signal , Tomorrow With You,  I Can Speak ( movie)
5.. Shin Min Ah - Tomorrow With You, Chief of Staff S1 and S2 , Oh My Venus

( I love SMA, and just wanted to note that she & LJH had amazing chemistry on Tomorrow With You, a time travel drama with romance. )

One and only...


Shin Sung Rok - Kairos, Perfume, The Last Empress, Return, Liar Game, You Who Came From A Star and many more.


So versatile, such a great actor and his voice is gold. Severly overlooked in dramaland for years but highly lauded in musical-land. Started his career in 2003 and finally got his 1st drama 1st lead role in 2019. Currently killing it in Kairos! 🥳

Like @abs-oluteM, I had a really hard time choosing because I enjoy the works of a lot of actors/actresses. Since the criteria is choosing actors/actresses that I would watch just for them without knowing much about the project, it made things a little bit easier. I love all Asian Entertainment, but since I'm more of an avid watcher of Korean Entertainment, I decided to keep my list to Korean actors/actresses. I also included movies as not all the actors/actresses I watch star in dramas and there are some actors/actresses who regularly star in movies that I share the same sentiment about too.  


Park Seo Jun - Itaewon Class, Fight For My Way, Midnight Runners

Lee Je Hoon - Signal, Bleak Night, Tomorrow With You

Nam Ji Hyun - 100 Days My Prince, Shopping King Louis, Suspicious Partner

Lee Joon Gi - Flower of Evil, Lawless Lawyer, Arang and the Magistrate 


Choi Woo Sik - Parasite, Train to Busan, Hogu's Love

Song Kang Ho - A Taxi Driver, Parasite, The Host

Kang Dong Won - The Secret Reunion, My Brilliant Life, Master, 

Gong Yoo - Silenced, Train to Busan, Goblin

Kim Soo Hyun - Secretly Greatly, My Love From the Star, It's Okay Not to be Okay, The Thieves.
