Considered to be one of the prettiest actors in South Korea, Lee Jong Suk first came into the limelight as a model. Born on September 14, 1989, he was once considered the Youngest Korean Model when he started his modeling career. After successfully earning a reputation on the runway, he tried his luck in acting and made his debut in the drama show Prosecutor Series in 2010. Yet, not until he took the lead role in the 2012 drama entitled "School 2013", did he truly solidify his name in show business.
With a face that could also launch a thousand ships, Song Joong Ki is arguably one of the most handsome Korean actors of his generation. His acting debut in the film "A Frozen River" definitely put him on the map. Shows after shows, his succeeding projects like "A Werewolf Boy" made a hallmark in the history of Korean cinema. Considered to be a polymath, Joong Ki also excelled in athletics and earned his business administration degree with flying colors.
Lee Min Ho's brilliant acting prowess and charismatic voice transcend the borders of South Korea, making him one of the most loved Korean actors in Asia. When fate took away his dream of becoming a professional footballer, he focused much of his attention on acting. He started to have his moments in the silver screen and TV after the successful run of the Korean drama "Boys over Flowers" in 2009. His portrayal of the character of Gu Jun-pyo in the hit drama series made him snatch the Best New Actor award at the Baekang Arts Awards.
Whenever we hear the name Lee Min-ho, all we could ever imagine is a man who cuts a dash in his leather jacket in every action scene that he does. Yet, little did people know that behind his strong and powerful bravado in the Korean hit series Boys Over Flowers is a pain that he has been enduring all these years. Did you know that Lee Min-ho got involved in a life and death car mishap in 2006? It was tragic enough to get him to suffer from a broken thigh and ankle. And yes, doctors needed to place metal plates so his bones would get re-aligned and heal. So when rumors spread that he would get excruciating pain on the set of Boys Over Flowers during winter or whenever he needed to dip into cold water, that's the reason behind. The hit-and-run accident left him disabled for months.
Yet, like a phoenix, the Korean heartthrob rose from the ashes! After filming Boys Over Flowers in 2009, iron plates were removed. Show after show, he has taken the world by storm. He then became part of a series of Korean dramas, like City Hunter in 2011, as well as brand endorsements in and out of South Korea. No wonder, he is considered one of the most handsome Korean actors, if not the most handsome, as well as The King of Ads! Interestingly, it seemed his popularity couldn't be contained inside his homeland that it reached the Philippines, China, Japan, and other Asian countries, dubbing him as The Top Hallyu Star! Wait, did we mention that he once dreamed of becoming a professional footballer?
