Kings of KDRAMA

Hello and welcome!!!

A few months ago, I posted Queens of KDRAMA, and a lot of you really liked it, and even to date, you ask me to make a part two but I am yet to get around to it. for today, I will be focusing on all my Korean drama kings, they make watching Korean dramas worth it. Just like I did with Queens of KDRAMA, I will be listing a few of their works below and I hope you check them out.

It’s 2020 and I have been watching Korean dramas for over 13 years! I can’t believe it. It started with me being so obsessed with TV shows and it morphed into dramas and one day I found myself watching JUMONG, which was one of the first-ever Korean drama I watched. This thrust me into the world of Korean drama and K-POP.

I will only be recommending popular works that I have watched, so in case you see one that you think is meant to be on the list but isn’t.

Without further ado, let’s get into it…

Park Seo Jeon

As much as I want to claim that this list is free of bias, I can’t help but say he is my number one, any day all day, I love him so much. He always brings comedy to his acting… there is no way you can watch him acting without laughing, he is just so good at what he does that it is so natural.ย  He has such a wide range, there is almost no role he can’t play.

Popular Works

  • What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim?
  • Itaewon Class
  • Fight My Way
  • Hwarang
  • Midnight Runners

Lee Jong Suk

Oh! I love him *screaming fangirl* I have a wholeย BINGE||Season 1 Episode 3 (Actor Edition) where I reviewed all the dramas and movies he has ever been cast in. He is one of the most expressive actors on this list when he cries, I become a sobbing mess.

Popular Works

  • Doctor Stranger
  • W
  • Pinnochio
  • No Breathing
  • Hot Young Blood

Ji Chang Wook

Hmm…okay I love him. He is just fantastic, he can be a spy, he can handle a gun, he can jump over fences, he can make your heart beat faster, he can melt your icy heart (okay I will stop now). I love all his action movies but having watched is romantic comedies too, I just have to yell, range!!!!!!

Popular Works

  • Empress Ki
  • Warrior Baek Dong-soo
  • Healer
  • K2
  • Meeting Me Softly

Seo Kang Joon

This man is fine!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can’t scream it enough. I just feel like this man is underrated and it is a shame because he is such a good actor. He has perfected the I am innocent look which can switch so quickly to one of mischief and wickedness.

Popular Works

  • Are You Human Too?
  • When the weather is fine
  • The Third Charm

Lee Jong Gi

I love him (how many times have I said this?). He is one of the Korean actors that I fell in love with when I started watching Korean dramas. the first time I saw him was in Iljimae which is some sort of Korean take on Robin hood.

Popular works

  • Iljimae
  • Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo
  • Lawless Lawyer
  • Arang and the Magistrate

Lee Min Ho

This list would not be complete without this King, he was made extremely popular by playing a rich heir in the cheesiest Korean drama of all time that I love. He has been in so many Korean dramas that I have watched but here are a few that you should check out.

Popular Works

  • Boys over flowers
  • Personal Taste
  • The King: Eternal Monarch
  • Legend of the Blue Sea

Because I am sure I can go on and on about Korean actors that I love and popular works that they have participated in, I will stop here and list a few others that you can check up yourself

Park Bo Gum


Kim Soo Hyun


Lee Seung Gi

Yeo Jin Goo
