    you should change the title to ‘Popular Korean Drama Actor’ or something like that.
    wth with kim hyun joong on the list???
    he is one of the most untalented actors which can’t act and become popular because of his good looks only.

    • aaaaah says:

      What where is Jung Yong Hwaa???

      • leetuk says:

        Jung Yong Hwaa is not an actor. He’s a K-pop band leader. He may have acted in two dramas , but he’s not an actor. I can say he’s much better in acting than KHJ but he’s not on par with the names on the list above.

  2. mamae says:

    i totally agree with the first comment about kim hyun joongs only asset is his pretty face, he is not even a good singer, as of the rest i think they’re ok.

  3. Anne Ex Eels says:

    yes, i totally agree with the above comments, even that i am an eel (or an ex eel, dunno…). it’s better changed to top ten most popular korean actors.

    if it about best actor, i will choose lee byung hun.

    • That list from Screen Junkies, so, it mean, we aren’t owning that.. And at the end of post, you also can read our comment about this list! btw, thank you for your comment!^^

  4. ermmm says:

    i’m not agree…because i think kim hyun joong is not that bad.. he is also one of the best korean actor n its really2 prove because he can be an internatonal artist.. that is bcoz he is really hv that talent 2 be an artist

  5. sarahary2 says:

    i love jang geun suk, but right now, among the best top korean actors, one of them should be song ll gook in Jumong, i think he’s an excellent actor..

  6. emerald says:

    I totally agree about kim hyung joong being a terrible actor. even though I used to be a fan , I have to say the truth. As for jang keun suk he is really an excellent actor. there are some roles for him where I can’t imagine any other actor doing it better than him.
    He gives life to his characters. I think this will have a brilliant future.

    • ermmm says:

      i’m not agree about that. kim hyun joong act in bof really gv impact to so many people..because he can act that well n u know most of the people out there know him n his group after watch his acting…doesnt it show that he is really good

    Both kim hyung joong and jang geun suk are really talented and blessing actors…….I don’t agree with the first comment………………………………….

  9. ilgookfan says:

    why is Song Il Gook not in the list? He is the best and most good looking.

  10. hannah says:

    aw knd of disappointed to not see HYUN BIN in here… wont specify names but he s definitely better than few of the ones here… he acts so well in secret garden, snow queen and worlds within really well

  11. Zarin@India says:

    Its very sad to know that sm one in this world think kim hyung joong like that . He is a legent. His way of acting… Its different. I must say m totally agree with him in the above list including LeeMin Hoo n Rain of course.

  12. honest says:

    Ah! I agree about most except Kim hyung joong. Really not good at acting. Hope he will focus on singing. I love bea yong and lee min ho and hyun bin! But my most favorite actor recently is Jang keun suk…. this guy has something different. His acting is superb! Normally I can’t stand stuck up characters in dramas because the actors concentrate mostly on the stuck up factor and don’t show much emotions in other sides where you can sympathies with the character. But with Jang keun suk he truly nailed it. One minute I totally hated the character he acted the next minute when his eyes sparkle with tears I totally feel sorry for the character and start to love it. I didn’t even liked how he looked the first time I saw him in “he’s beautiful” so it wasn’t the looks that got me , but his great acting! can’t wait for “you’re my pet” and “love rides the rain” … I see a legend in the making.

    • nara young says:

      Jan geun suks future is totally bright, he is a superb actor…..hes just got everything that is needed to be no1…and wid faithful eels and other fans he is surely raising…..FIGHTING ALL JANG GEUNis raising as quickly as jks…

  13. jenny says:

    Hyun Bin the Best Actor

  14. raneem says:

    Jang keun suk! The first actor that made me interested enough to watch a foreign drama!
    I’ve never felt interested in watching something that doesn’t speak my language , because every time I tried , I just feel tried from following both the movie and the subtitles. My friends bugged me for months to watch Korean dramas so I tried. First three dramas I watched were dropped after two episodes. I was about to give up but decided to give one more drama a chance ” you’re beautiful ” was the winner, and I have to say , never imagined that I would finish watching it in just three days! couldn’t stop! and Jang keun suk amazing acting was my fuel and from there I was hooked!
    I’ve watched a lot of K-dramas after that including all JKS works and he’s without a doubt the best Korean actor IMO. I see him going international very soon.

    Prince of Asia and soon to the world ^_^

  15. dsads says:

    JGS is shit his drama mary stayed out all night failed immensely just like most of his other dramas…LMH to me has the most promising future..He has never failed to impress me since BOF!JGS just has all those eels little girls following him around thinking that he is the best actor ever or something…Calling him prince of asia is a disgrace itself!

    • caring-mother says:

      lol! Hater much? I LOVE lee min ho , but he sucks in acting in BOF and personal taste. But in City hunter he has finally proved that he can act. So I see a promising future for him.

      A for the list above , I pretty much agree they are the best actors for now. JKS is by far one of the best actors in his generation. While some try to down play his acting based on the ratings. He still managed to do better in acting than most actors his age. Mary stayed out all night had average rating like personal preference has gotten average rating. I don’t know why you say it failed horribly , it wasn’t a hit in Korea but outside Korea it has gotten good rating in Japan and Taiwan and even got to top ten most successful Korean dramas in Japan.

      And most of JKS followers are middle aged women , not teenagers. Now even the media call him prince of Asia. When Korean , Japanese , Chinese and Filipino media call him prince of Asia .. who are we to say it’s a disgrace?

      you have every right to not like him , but others have the right to like him and cheer him.

    • nara young says:

      please dont insult any one here…..jang geun suk works very hard and what he has today he TOTALY deserves!!
      I agree lee min ho is a very good actor and i also am a big fan…and even u seem to be a fan…infact the 2 actors can learn soo much from eachother!!

  16. alanna marie says:

    i dont agree…… lee min ho is the BEST no matter what ……………..

  17. mylz says:

    Please add: KIM RAE WON and GO SOO and Sung-Jo In Seong!!! They’re are simply the best too!!!!!

  18. pratibha says:

    Kim Hyun Joong is most amazing artist… He is combined package of entertainment…. He is amazing singer…. amazing dancer…. and undoubtedly good looks…. and his acting is very nice as well….. he got a role in which he dint had to express his feelings much in bof….. and no one else could have done that better than him….. and in playfull kiss… he has already shown his talent…. He is amazing……..

  19. knglover says:

    haven’t you watched kim nam gil aka bidam in queen seondeok??? he is a good actor with good looks too…

  20. miyane~ says:
