50 KOREAN ACTORS TO LOVE
#5 - Wonbin
After his 1997 debut, Wonbin shot up to stardom fairly quickly and easily thanks to his looks. His first notable role was in 2000’s hit drama “Autumn Tale,” which officially made him Pretty Boy Extraordinaire of Korea. He starred in a few hit films after that — “Guns & Talks,” the internationally acclaimed “Taeguki: The Brotherhood of War" — but it was 2009’s "Mother" and last year’s "The Man From Nowhere" (both in which he radically changed his image and showed his versatility) that solidified his place on the list of actors who have the acting abilities to go along with their good looks.
Wonbin has consistently kept his place as a name synonymous with “handsome” for many years alongside others like Jang Dong-gun and Jung Woo-sung. He has become, in many ways, a standard.
