Although Lee Junho of 2PM was at the top of all brand reputation lists long into the new year, his drama 'The Red Sleeve' didn't debut until the end of 2021. Fans hardly seemed to mind that he appeared in every advertisement in Korea. Seeing how he was portrayed as the romantic King Yi San, who had just one true love, Sung Deok Im (Lee Se Young), was beautiful. Since the final episode of the series, Lee Junho shared in an interview that he had received hundreds of screenplays and offers. He deserves his success so much.
Son Suk Ku
Son Suk Ku won many people over the globe by playing Mr Gu in 'My Liberation Notes.' Many people fell in love with his rough portrayal of an alcoholic mobster who managed to find love while escaping his difficulties. Son Suk Ku is a versatile actor who can play various roles and convey different charms and aspects, making him very adaptable. We can only hope he appears in more dramas soon.
Kim Min Kyu
Kim Min Kyu portrayed Cha Sung Hoon in the popular SBS series, 'A Business Proposal.' The webtoon adaptation of a well-known web novel serves as the basis for the series, which has been surprisingly successful for its adorably romantic central duo. The second coupling, Cha Sung Hoon and Jin Young Seo (Seol In Ah), however, was what sent hearts racing. Their chemistry was incredible, and one of the best kiss scenes ever was theirs.
Kang Tae Oh
Unfortunately, the newest member on this list, Kang Tae Oh, has said goodbye to his admirers as he enlists in the military. In the popular television series, 'Extraordinary Attorney Woo' Kang Tae Oh played Lee Jun Ho, a legal assistant who fell in love with an autistic lawyer named Woo Young Woo (Park Eun Bin).
