Kim Bum is VERY HANDSOME and SO HOT! When I showed the American girls, they think he is BEAUTIFUL! They said that among Asian guys, no one is better looking than him. Kim Bum is a good actor. He chooses difficult roles for his dramas and expresses different sides of his personality. Also, he is such a good singer with a nice, strong voice. I've seen him play piano, guitar, and saxophone. Overall, he is very talented and one of the most popular Korean actors.
Such a good actor and singer, but why he always second lead? His dramas are good and popular though. He's so HANDSOME! Hopefully, he'll get a leading role in upcoming dramas. Good luck! Wish you the best!

The Contenders

11Kwon Sang Woo
He could act even with only his facial reaction. A very good actor who has been neglected so far...
I love him, he is very talented
Because his acting is very natural, cool, and his style is very comfortable.
Stairway to Heaven, sad love story, into the sun, cinderela man..
It's my favorite drama..


I like him in iris as he was act as a hunter who want to kill all iris characters. He should be number 1. His evil eyes, his skills give him some badass power.
T.O.P... You're the best actor with your evil's eyes..
I like T.O. P who act in Iris

13Jo In Seong
One of the best Drama actors I've seen. The way he acts, it's just so captivating.
He is one of the bests in Korea. He can act well and he portrays his role with passion and feeling. He is also very cute...
He is very handsome and talented actor. His eyes are full of emotions. He does woonderful works.

14Kim Woo Bin
He's a hottie... He may play bad boy role all his life, but he will be the one I love most compare to any protagonist leading actors. YOU ROCK MAN!
New actors but he rocks in the drama "Heirs" and in "School 2013" with lee jong suk

15Hyun Bin
He was the shining star in both hit dramas, My Lovely Sam Soon and Secret Garden. His shows stellar performance in any drama and is able to play a wide range of characters. A reason for those dramas to be such popular hits is his remarkable acting.
He‘s the best actor and he has a great personality
He is best in acting. The very difficult role was played by him in Secret Garden. He acted very good as a lady soul inside his body. He is simply superb...

16Im Yoona
She is a great actress I hope she win and I can't wait to see her new drama
She acting in Cinderella Man, and she;s so good
Also, the latest drama, LoveRain, its nice drama and she act well
Yoona is the best

17Lee Min Ki
Versatile and has an interesting way of portraying a character.

18Park Si Hoo
Park Si Hoo is a great artist. This actor is unique - he is V. Talented and charismatic, he has the ability to display deep emotions, the ability to give life of the character. I saw all his dramas and his movie. All his characters are play diverse and you can fell deep emotions of the character.
Park Si Hoo is the best Korean actor. He is very talented, expressive, versatile and charismatic artist. Love all his dramas and his movie. He has displayed versatility and each character he breathes life into is so distinctively different from each other. Just by looking at his photos, I can tell which character and for which drama...amazing right
Park Si Hoo is a very talented and charismatic actor. Love all his dramas especially The Princess Man, Family Honour and the recent Cheongdamdong Alice.

19Gong Yoo
Love him he has the cutest smile and you can see his great charisma and how funny he is
His abs have their own fanclub, his smile too

20Joo Won
An amazing actor with a charming, baby-like face, Joo Won is one of the fastest rising young male actors in Korea. With lead roles in top-rated dramas under the belt for him (Ojakgyo Brothers, Bridal Mask, Good Doctor, 7th Grade Civil Servant, Baker King etc.), his acting skills still have endless potential waiting to be unleashed. Taking on roles of different natures, this man-boy is able to make us believe he is evil, damaged, heroic, pure and autistic (! ) when we watch him in different characters. You would not believe that it is the same person, giving such a magnificent performance that shows his understanding, depth and genuineness of his emotions.
Good appearance and best actor especially in action drama also he's so handsome
He is cute n talented

21Yoo Ah-in
Seen most of his dramas and his acting skills are really amazing. He really potrays his characters well, regardless of whatever role he takes. Unlike most of the other famous actors with good looks and their charming, sweet and rich guy roles, YAI is definitely one of a kind. He takes on roles with flaws, roles that might not give him the best popularity but still carries them well. The way he acts makes audiences share a deep connection with the character he's portraying. Sure, some of his dramas may have bad endings but I do not think that a good actor means choosing a drama with a good ending that would please everyone. His acting skills are great, no doubt (even for the badly criticized dramas, he acted really well on his part). I was charmed by not only his talent in acting, but his depths as a person. He's intellectual and inspiring. An actor who's not acting just for fame, but who wants to make a difference in the acting industry. A positive difference.
He's a good actor and has that charm
He is a very good actor

22Yeo Jin-goo

23Kwon Yuri

He is the best singer or actor. I really loved all his drama. The way he sing on concerts it's give me energy & I again recharge myself. I wouldn't see him in real but whenever I see him on net I always smile. God Bless Him...
He is awesome (like always ) but I also like Kim so Hyung (my love from the star)
