Let’s go Hallyu!! Hottest Korean Celebrity Men


Hello gorgeous people of the world!

How are you guys? Sorry for the scarce posts lately, work has been keeping me. Well, not that this isn’t also work, but… Anyway, even a week or so without spazzing about pop culture feels like forever!

So… as a special treat and for a change of pace, here’s a run down of the hottest Korean male celebrities to ever grace the industry. We’ve been ogling and drooling over Japanese artists for a while and now it’s time to go overseas! Watch out, it’s gonna be quite a long list! Koreans never seem to run out of eyecandies, which makes you wonder – what are they feeding these guys anyway??

While reading… you can choose from my fave Korean songs in this listening corner:

Se7en’s sexy voice

LEE WAN


Joining the ranks of his equally famous and fab sister Kim Tae Hee, Lee Wan makes a name for himself by being a badass. It may be odd that he’s played the role of a guy in an incestuous love story twice! But the good genes and good performance definitely makes up for it!


YOO GUN

Popular-model-turned-actor (aren’t they all?) Yoo Gun became more well known for reasons other than his charms in the drama “Hello God.” Well, hello gorgeous!


Yoo Gun: Stop it! You’re making me blush! *NOTE: this pose will apparently recur from one actor to the next*

Here’s another model who became a screen heartthrob…

Dal Ja’s Spring male lead LEE MIN KI



Lee Min Ki may not stand out as an in-your-face blatantly hot guy, but his appeal runs deep. He has that down-to-earth, likeable vibe to him which won’t make you feel like a complete troll when you stand next to him.

He kinda looks like the friendly neighbor all the girls in your high school had a crush on.

Shinhwa’s ERIC MUN


This guy makes the scruffy, effortless look work. And he’s a very versatile actor too, especially in comedies. Cutie with a good sense of humor? Is he a fangirl illusion come to life?

Here is Korea’s answer to the light-haired overly girly Tegoshi….



KIM JUNG HOON


The little prince started out as a member of a singing duo (kinda like Tegomass?) and worked his way up to being the actor in the well-received drama “Princess Hours/ Goong.” I was actually rooting for him in the series, never did much like the gaunt, skinny male lead.


Isn’t he just the cutest thing?

Head’s up people! RAIN’s coming down.



The guy definitely has THE moves. If only his songs don’t ALWAYS begin with the sentence: “I’m Rain” or “This is rain” – I mean, like we didn’t know that already!


He could’ve been the hottest guy around… if only he fired his hairstylist. Earth to Rain: that mop on your head has got to go!


Speaking of having moves…



Se7en started out as the overly enthusiastic teenybopper who tries to rap and be all gangsta.


But he has since evolved into a stylish, sleek guy without losing his boyish charm. His voice is divine.


FROM BOYS TO MEN…



Manly man Song Seung Hoon looks like your all around hero who became famous after his role in “Autumn in my Heart,” with partner cutie Song Hye Kyo.

And now he’s teamed up with another hottie on the list…



Brokeback material? Nah! Don’t you just wish you can squish in right in the middle?

KWON SANG WOO


They say big boys don’t cry – but KSW can cry at the drop of a hat and be damn proud of it! He always plays the tough guy with a sensitive heart. Recently he’s admitted to being off the market – he’s now engaged to Son Tae Young. Pull out those handkerchiefs and get ready to wipe your tears.

DENNIS OH
OH. My… *drops on the ground…faints*


JO IN SUNG


Who can forget Jo In Sung from the controversial drama “Memories in Bali?”


LEE DONG WOOK

I’m flattered. *the shy, embarrassed pose*

Gotta love the guy for being both a cute boy and a sultry man at the same time.


LDW in My Girl. This is the one time when everyone, including his die-hard female fans wish that his on screen tandem with Lee Da Hae come true. They look really adorable together.


Korea’s hottest import – DANIEL HENNEY


If Gwyneth Paltrow looks at him that way… he must be doing something right.
Here he is in that staple “I’m embarrassed don’t-look-at-me-that-way” look. The guy can’t act to save his life, but he’s showing signs of potential and proving that he’s not all about just having great abs. Though most of the time it is..



HYUN BIN oppa wants you!


Hyun Bin’s breakthrough drama would probably be Kim Sam Soon. It was hilarious! For the first time, a slightly overaged, full-figured and single woman dominated the screen! Hooray! And she snagged the smartly dressed boy toy along the way!
Too much hotness at the same channel? Daniel Henney also starred in the same drama.


Nothing like two hot guys looking all red and drunk – a potential OTP, perhaps?


Coffee Prince’s GONG YOO


Surfer boy. Washboard abs. Great tan. Enough said.

Here’s a guy who got discovered while he was walking around the streets…

Pack up your bags and let’s get ready to roam the streets of Korea!

KANG DONG WON in the hit movie “Temptation of Wolves.” He’s hot not mainly because of his looks, but because of his great acting chops.


The guy plays his cards well. He chooses roles that are challenging and are different from each other. Here he is in the movie “Duelist,” looking prettier than Ha Ji Won.
BIG BANG’S T.O.P.


Aptly named T.O.P. making a big bang when he did a photoshoot which transformed him from a baggy jean wearing rapper to a black eyeliner-wearing rockstar emo.

Can you believe his transition from this?

THESE FIVE GUYS OCCUPY THE SAME SPOT. THEY ARE ALL EQUALLY AWESOME. DBSK. TVXQ. TOHOSHINKI. Whatever. Everyone knows them anyway.


These guys make a great team. Their voices blend really well and look good together. And their overall style is low-profile, simple, yet not boring. Their personalities seem to be the same way as well, not over-the-top, not too bland either. Simply cute.


But of course they did go through that awkward phase of bad outfits and weird, unexplainable hair (*Jaejoong’s hair explosion and Junsu’s bleach disaster). Even Changmin had to be forced to wear those silly bunny ears.


On a side note, I like Mickey the best. *I’m biased, I know.* I would’ve put Super Junior here but they are so numerous I felt like I was looking at the Korean male version of AKB48! And they have scary netizen/ die-hard fans… *gets mobbed by SuJu stalkers*

RANDOM POLL: WHO DOES THE PLATINUM/ SILVER HAIR BETTER? JAEJOONG OR MIURA HARUMA IN SKY OF LOVE?


Here’s a celeb who can pass off as a girl and win a beauty pageant hands down…

LEE JUN KI


His features are so perfect they even made a doll version of him!
Kinda creepy if you ask me. But then again, his fans won’t mind being haunted by a moving, talking and chasing little Lee Jun Ki Chuckie.

AND THE BEST OF THE BEST…

WON BIN


Won Bin’s timeless charm.

What’s great about this guy is that he is a very versatile actor who’s not afraid to change and play up with his image and still look damn good! Here he goes from dark, brooding and mysterious to a mischeivous, smirking cutie.



He can rock the long hair and the clean, buzz cut. A lot of people are saying that he looks a bit like Kimura Takuya, but he’s his own man – maybe even better.

***

And now here are the hottest male celebs who are semi-old, but still look like they can beat the youngins any day…



Ahjumma killer BAE YONG “the bespectacled one” JOON made the sleek salaryman look work. He’s the most coveted son-in-law any old mother would want to have for herself. Who knew underneath all that frumpy hair and dull suit lies gazillion years worth of gym body?

OH JI HOT



When I first saw Oh Ji Ho, I was like, “Eh? What’s Nagase doing in a Kdrama?” Ho well, there may be an uncanny resemblance at first glance, but Oh Ji Ho’s quite a dish himself.


JANG DONG GUN


Anther OTP! Jang Dong Gun and Rain in their famous Giordano ad.


Hallyu takes over the world! JDG working with Kate Bosworth in a Hollywood movie.

AND ON THE TOP…

LEE BYUNG HOON


LBH rocked his recent Vogue goth fallen angel photoshoot.


The harbinger of death and chaos!


JDG’s not the only one conquering Tinseltown. LBH is starring in a G.I. Joe movie version.
One last “I’m embarrassed don’t-look-at-me-that-way” look.

So, who’s your favorite on the list?
