3Lee Joon-gi

What I admire with him is the way he treats his fans. He knows that without them he will not be in that stage of being famous Korean actor. He is so down to earth and at the same time He has a baby face, his smile and killer looks will definitely knocks you down and his really very good in his craft, whether in acting, dancing and singing. I wonder what else he can offer for his fans.

LEE JOON GI can ACT, SING, DANCE and is such a versatile entertainer. Read his instagram messages, watch his video clips and read the responses of his fans and you'll have a great day! His fans' messages are so funny. All his fans love him and are CRAZY about him! If you are sad, go to his INSTAGRAM and your life will be bright once more!

Many American fans of 'Scholar Who Walk The Night' have commented on the web that Lee Joon Gi's acting skills are amazing and the drama is fantastic!

One even commented that Lee Joon Gi's eyes should be considered to be the National Treasure of South Korea! His eyes are obviously gorgeous!

Lee Joon Gi's acting skills are stupendous!

7Lee Seung Gi

I really like him because he can portray his role very well, and he is a talented person. He is really cute especially when he smiled.

He's acting is very good. Every time there's this hug scene if he is the male lead. I really wanted to be the female lead and I can feel his love and warmness. He's also very very handsome and a smile killer. He's cute and a calm person. I love many actors but he's in my list of my favorite actors. He is also very smart and very talented. I envy I'm Yoona from Girls generation who is dating him right now. I am so jealous of her! Well hope all the best for you Lee Seunggi! I love You!

8Kim Bum

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!

He's really a handome guy and his smile is truly awesome
Love you kim bum

He is perfect at his way of acting I like him so much

Very adorable, cute, intelligent and talented actor. I love him in Innocent guy and Werewolf Boy. Especially in Running Men, he was so hilarious with his way of dance and sing. I wish a successful life for him. I love you so much Song Joong Ki

Song Joong Ki is very cute, intellegent, and has great acting skills! He never gives up and tries his hardest at whatever he does... He moved my heart so many times in Running Man, where he kept on trying, and never lost his hope... I hope that he continues to improve and I am rooting for him! ;P


He is the best, especially on the new show, Descendants of the Sun. Very hard-working and so cute. Such a talented actor, and he is perfect everywhere!

He could act even with only his facial reaction. A very good actor who has been neglected so far...

Because his acting is very natural, cool, and his style is very comfortable.

12Hyun 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 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...

He is a real artist. He knows his role very well. He is so passionate in playing his role. He is the best!

Very talented actor. Pure perfection!... Wish he made a drama series every year!

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..

16Joo 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.

I love him in Good Doctor. He made me cry and sympathize with Si On's character within 5 minutes of watching the first episode.

Good appearance and best actor especially in action drama also he's so handsome

Please voting for joo woon

19Yoo 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

A good actor as a king in Jang Ok Jung Drama. He have a naturall acting.

He deserves to be upper

I am such a huge fun of this young actor. His dramas which includes Missing You, Moon Embracing the Sun and movies Hwayi, Shoot my Heart is a must to watch...He can portray any character that was given to him. No wonder Park Bo young wanted to act along side Yeo Jin Goo. He will be one of the actors to watch for the years to come...
