So, what is your dream destination? Is it Paris? Or London? Or Alaska? Or are you a Korean lover? As one of the most trending tourist spots for Asians, South Korea is a very cultural country. The key role in South Korea’s commercial development is played by Kpop and the film and drama industries. I won’t be shocked if every Asian household has at least one South Korean fan. I have got the names of some prominent actors and actresses from South Korea here, check them out.
Shin-Hye is among the most accomplished actresses in the country, of her age. As a singer, dancer, and actress she is recognized for her performance in Stairway to Heaven melodrama. Her movie debut was in Tree to Heaven, a Korean-Japanese film. She also has an older brother Park Shin-Won, a music composer. Park Shin-Hye has done several projects such as Pinnochio, You’re beautiful, The Heirs, Memories of Alabama to name a few.
Min-Ho is the first Korean artist who has a statue of wax in the Madame Tussauds. He got his recognition from his role of Gu Jun-Pyo in one of my favorite k-dramas, Boys Over Flowers. The actor got the role after a tough fight but knew the result through the newspapers that he is in the cast. If we talk about his modeling, singing, and acting career, he is bright in all. Some of Lee Min-Ho‘s most remarkable works can be The Heirs, Hunters, Legend of the Blue Sea, and Personal Taste.
Bae Su-Ji, aka, Bae Suzy has been a shining star since her movie debut. The singer-actress showed up on the screen with a television drama Dream High.

Min-Young is an actress, model, and MC Host. On my personal note, I like this actress. Her name rose to fame with her role in Sungkyunkwan Scandal. The Cat, a horror film was her debut on the big screen. Her other works include What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim?, Queen For Seven Days, Dr. Jin, City Hunter, Her Private Life, Healer, Glory Jane, and A New Leaf.

The handsome Korean actor showcased his best skills in Kill Me, Heal Me. His first film was The Chronicles of Evil, a thriller film.
