Almost every work starring these actors is a must-watch.
Constantly starring in high-rated works and delivering flawless performances, the following names are among the most trustworthy actors of the Korean screen.
Seo Hyun Jin
Although she started out as a female idol, Seo Hyun Jin is barely referred to as an idol actor because of her impressive acting. From “Another Oh Hae Young”, “You Are My Spring”, “The Beauty Inside”, to “Why Her” that just premiered recently, Seo Hyun Jin has continued to prove that not only is her acting getting better, she has always had a good eye when it comes to choosing the right scripts.
Ji Sung is the king when it comes to Korean actors who can nail psychologically complicated, emotionally challenging roles. Every time he transforms into a new character, Ji Sung amazes the audience with his acting. Ji Sung’s range as shown through his drama filmography is without doubt impressive. Outstanding examples are “Kill Me Heal Me”, “Defendant”, “Secret Love”, “Doctor John”, and his latest comeback in “The Devil Judge”.

After taking on antagonistic roles in “The Girl Who Sees Scent” and “Remember” and leaving a lasting impression with his brilliant portrayal, Nam Goong Min’s acting career was taken to the next level. He then continued to star as leads in high-rated dramas such as “Doctor Prisoner”, “Awaken”, “Stove League”, “The Veil” and flaunt his phenomenal acting.
Kim Tae Ri
Kim Tae Ri only debuted in 2016, but her filmography is already insanely impressive. From the critically acclaimed movie “The Handmaiden” that marked her debut to her first ever drama “Mr. Sunshine” that recorded high ratings, it did not take Kim Tae Ri long to become a “monster rookie” among young actresses. Earlier this year, thanks to the success of her comeback drama “Twenty Five, Twenty One”, Kim Tae Ri excellently won Best Actress at the 57th Baeksang Arts Awards.
