Celebrate Children’s Day With 6 Cutest Child Stars

Beginning today (May 5), dozens of countries around the world celebrate Children’s Day through the middle of June. Many other countries have special days for children on other days of the year, with the United Nations-recognized Universal Children’s Day being celebrated on November 20.

To tip our hats to all the children of the world, we wanted to highlight some of the cutest and best child actors working today from our favorite television dramas.

Miki Honoka

This up-and-coming Japanese actress has made quite an impression since her acting debut in 2010. The 16-year-old’s starring role as the bumbling Kotoko in “Mischievous Kiss: Love in TOKYO” has made her a bona fide star.

Gabriela Borges

This triple threat (known the world over for her acting, singing and dancing ability) wowed audiences in the role of Daniel’s daughter, Laurita, in “Eva Luna,” and she even brought the house down with her performance of “Ave Maria” in the final episode. The 14-year-old is a native of Miami, Florida, and has won numerous international dance competitions and was nominated as Best Child Actress by the El Nuevo Herald in 2011. Because of her love of fashion, the actress also has partnered with Univision to develop her own brand.

Kim Yoo Jung

No list of today’s cutest and best child actors would be complete without this prolific and talented young Korean actress. Equally adept at period dramas as well as modern-day stories, Yoo Jung has both the looks and the acting chops to back it up. At age 14, Yoo Jung has already compiled a huge pile of best child actress awards for her many roles, including her tear-jerker performance as the young Hae Joo in “May Queen.”
