Our Favorite Korean Drama Actors Who Played As Military Men in K-Dramas and Films


We have seen different types of men in Korean dramas like a dashing CEO, a handsome and rich chaebol, a king or prince from another era or parallel universe, a heartthrob lawyer or prosecutor, and the smart and good-looking doctor.


However, every Korean drama lover would agree that there is a certain appeal with actors who portray a neat and fierce military character onscreen, especially when they get dressed up in attention-grabbing military uniforms.


The most recent example of this is Hallyu star Hyun Bin who played the North Korean military captain Ri Jeon Hyeok in "Crash Landing on You," and Lee Min Ho as Emperor Lee Gon in the "The King: Eternal Monarch."


And yes! We do love watching them wearing their military uniforms!

7 Memorable OSTs From "It's Okay To Not Be Okay" — Which One is Your Favorite?




One of the most unforgettable dramas this year, "It's Okay To Not Be Okay," sadly comes to an end. Apart from its amazing plot and superb cast lineup, we'll certainly miss the memorable OSTs that evoked and moved our hearts.


From the start of the series, talented singers with their unique voices and charming melodies that suited the drama fueled our sadness, the butterflies in our tummy, and all the emotions we felt all throughout.


And if you're one of us who miss the show, let's reminisce as we listen to these seven musical masterpieces from "It's Okay To Not Be Okay".


"Breath" by Sam Kim

This is one of the memorable OST songs that gave us goosebumps every time the intro is played. It definitely lingers in our heart and mind, with Kim Soo Hyun and Seo Ye Ji's face flashing in our memory showcasing their great chemistry.

"In Your Time" by AKMU's Lee SuHyun


With its enigmatic piano melody and Lee SuHyun's cold, beautiful voice carrying the sad emotions of Kim So Hyun and Seo Ye Ji's past life, this song will make your heart long for someone be by your side as well. It's one of the best OSTs of the drama where Seo Ye Ji finds healing and transforms into a better person with Kim Soo Hyun.

"Hallelujah" by Kim Feel's

The song depicts the sad life experience of Kwak Dong Yeon's speech as he expresses how lonely he felt being neglected by his family. It means rejoicing of finding one's happiness and releasing from the pain that holds oneself.

"Puzzle" by Yongzoo

"Puzzle" depicts the progress of Kim Soo Hyun and Seo Ye Ji's romantic relationship. The brighter melody and lyrics about life is never complete without inspiration from the one you love, and it surely fluttered the heart of the viewers as the wonderful memories of the couple during the beginning of their romance replays in their mind.

"Little by Little" by CHEEZE

CHEEZE's song carries the magical vibe that brings both sadness and joy. It gives a shuddering feeling that little by little, memories transform the heart and heals the person within.

"In Silence" by Janeh Suhh

The intro song brings a flashback of the painful stories of our stars in the drama. Remember the unforgettable scene where Kim Soo Hyun found Seo Ye Ji was walking late at night under the profusely pouring rain on the bridge? Though the song brings a tinge of hurt, it is one of the best OSTs of the drama as well.

"Cold" by Heize

Heize really never fails to deliver! "Cold" lingers in your mind about each scene while listening to it, and that, of course, includes Kim Soo Hyun and Seo Ye Ji's irresistible moments together.

Cold by Heize is one of the best I think when I heard it 1st time.. Idk why.. but the lyrics hits me so much.. 2nd is Breathe by Sam Kim; I firmly understood the lyrics when it pops up. It fills the gap with the sense of longing/needing and that borderline of empty can/bottomless stomach 



to think OTT streaming service and VOD will hurt public television show like KBS, MBC and SBS.. More younger people opts to watch dramas with no ads intervene..plus they have more freedom with lesser "commentary by parents" who sat in front of tv



Stay true to your words, Kim Soo Hyun!! Be an all rounder actor like Lee Jung Jae, Ha Jung Woo, Choi Min Sik and Jung Woo Sung.

These Handsome Korean Actors Played As North Korean Agents In Movies


Korean actors have their own style and charms that capture the heart of the viewers. There are certain details and angles that carry a character they portray.


The latest movie "Steel Rain 2: Summit" tackles leaders from three powerful countries: South Korea, the U.S., and North Korea. Lead actor and turned director Jung Woo Sung plays the president of South Korea, Yoo Yeon Seok portrayed a North Korean leader, while Kwak Do Won is a North Korean Supreme Guard Command Chief.


In one of his interviews, Jung Woo Sung made a fun side comment that Kwak Do Won became the first actor to break the "handsome North Korean agent." Usually, in dramas and films, the North Korean characters are either soldiers or police in various works, and celebrities portraying them tend to draw attention for their handsome looks.

Hallyu Star Male Lead, Brilliant Directing, And Natural Talent: What To Watch After “It’s Okay To Not Be Okay”




If you’re like me, you’re already dreading having to go through a weekend without anticipating the release of a new “It’s Okay To Not Be Okay” episode. Seeing Kim Soo Hyun, Seo Ye Ji, and Oh Jung Se on the regular was so healing to the soul. And we will surely miss seeing the trio together on the small screen. If you’re looking for some other shows, movies, or K-dramas to watch to help you get over this sad period in time, take a look at these recommendations.




Hallyu Star Kim Soo Hyun

If you’ve been in K-dramaland for awhile, then you probably know Kim Soo Hyun very well. He’s the one who took the world by storm after his portrayal as Do Min Jun in “My Love From the Star“—or some of us can argue that he took our world by storm way before that! With his return to the small screen after serving in the military, we were both pleased and surprised to see that his choice in script was such a success. But, if you’re looking for some other Kim Soo Hyun appearances apart from “My Love From the Star” and “Moon Embracing the Sun,” here are a few other solid watches!




Dream High




“Dream High” tells the story of several high school students who aspire to become K-pop idols. Go Hye Mi (Suzy) must convince two other students to come to her school for her to get accepted into the program. One of these students is Song Sam Dong, played by Kim Soo Hyun. He is a boy from the countryside who meets Hye Mi and falls in love with her, following her to Kirin Art High School.


This was Kim Soo Hyun’s first big break in a K-drama. His role as the country boy Song Sam Dong is such a heartthrob. The progression of seeing him go from an innocent and naive boy to a lovestruck potential K-pop idol is thrilling to watch, and it made the series a total success. You seriously might not even recognize him because of the crazy transformation!




Watch the first episode of “Dream High” here:


Watch Now


Running Man


Kim Soo Hyun was on episodes 102 and 147 of the hit variety show “Running Man” early on in his career. It was obvious even then as a rookie actor that he is talented and has an energy about him that is hard to look past. He is charming, adorable, and obviously very entertaining. Let’s hope we see him on the show again!




“Secretly Greatly”


Won Ryu Hwan (Kim Soo Hyun) is in the North Korean Special Forces and is sent to the South as a spy. He acts mentally challenged and is ordered to wait it out until he hears more from his part of the country. Once he gets word from the North, he is given a nearly impossible task that makes him rethink his return to North Korea.




This movie was released in 2013 and immediately broke several box office records. People enjoyed seeing Kim Soo Hyun’s versatility in acting and were pleasantly surprised to see his ability to pull off this comedic side so naturally. Luckily, we were able to see a reprise of Won Ryu Hwan in the recent hit series “Crash Landing On You,” and it was one of the best cameo appearances ever!
