These heartthrobs are known for their shining appearances, but can you imagine them playing characters in a period drama? (We can)
Forsaking modern stylish threads and accessories for a traditional hanbok or even a warrior’s armour in a Korean period drama, and maybe even look unkempt, JYJ’s Park Yoochun has done it in Sungkyungkwan Scandal, so has Lee Min Ho in The Great Doctor.
CNBlue’s lead singer Jung Yong Hwa, known for his musician roles in trendy series like You’re Beautiful and Heartstrings is also currently starring in his first period drama TheThree Musketeers now, which is currently airing, taking on the role of a young warrior living in the Joseon era.
When news of his new role broke, Boices (CNBlue fans) could not wait to see their idol make a change to his appearance for the drama. The first two episodes have aired and he has left viewers wanting more of his character “D’Artagnan”.
Following Yong Hwa’s highly-anticipated transition to the action sageuk series, here are eight other below-30 Korean idols whom we think should make their first step into the Joseon era. Click on for a variety of roles we think they can challenge.
