My 8 Favorite Korean Actors of All Time

Watching Korean dramas occupy my free time and has become my favorite past-time activity. I am fascinated with several Korean actors, not only because of their good looks but how they amazingly portray a character.

The very first K-drama I watched was The Baker King in 2010. A melodrama life story starred by Yoon Shi-yoon. This made me cry a bucket of tears and since then I am hooked to watching different family shows and K-dramas genres like action dramas, medical dramas, school dramas, horror dramas, family dramas, and even historical dramas.

There a lot of new and budding Korean actors nowadays, but I always look forward to watching the latest k-drama movie or tv series of my favorite 8 Korean actors of all time.
