There are unquestionably a lot of Korean dramas and movies and just as many actors starring in them. But there are quite a few men who, so it seems, are not able to show their full potential due to casting choices – constantly being the second lead, or only acting as supporting cast. The actors on this list managed to gain the attention of viewers despite not even being on screen for a long time. Here are some of the most underrated Korean actors – still waiting for their popularity to skyrocket.

1. Ji Soo

You might know Ji Soo from his roles in “Strong Woman Do Bong Soon,” “Scarlet Heart: Goryeo,” or other dramas and variety shows. That being said, Ji Soo is not exactly unknown and unrecognized, BUT the man needs a first leading role! Someone write a drama and let Ji Soo finally be not the second, but the first male lead!

2. Yoon Park

Just like Ji Soo, Yoon Park has done a lot of work and appeared on several variety shows, but it seems he still doesn’t get enough recognition, mostly acting as the second lead or supporting cast. After seeing him in dramas like “Introvert Boss,” “What Happens to My Family,” and “Please Come Back, Mister,” fans can’t help but want to see Yoon Park more often.
