Here’s your chance to learn more about these young rising Korean stars:

Park Hyung Shik

Park Hyung Shik debuted in 2010 with the K-pop boy group ZE:A, but it’s easy to get lost in the mix among eight other members. For him, the rise to fame came thanks to appearances in the reality/variety show “Real Men” and dramas such as the massive hit “Heirs” and “Nine: 9 Times Time Travel.” He even won the Best Male Newcomer in a Variety Show Award in 2013. Congratulations, Hyung Shik!


Seo Kang Joon

Seo Kang Joon is the new kid on the K-drama scene, having only been around for about a year. He appeared in “The Suspicious Housemaid,” but it was really his first supporting role in “Cunning Single Lady” that put him on the map. You might be surprised to learn that this timid flower boy is actually the leader of 5urprise, a five-member acting group set to branch out into music, commercials and variety shows. Don’t look too closely — his dreamy, light brown eyes make it hard for fans to resist him!  


Nam Ji Hyun

Nam Ji Hyun is the most veteran of the three actors because she has been acting since childhood with roles in “East of Eden” and “The Great Queen Seon Deok.” She’s even a three-time winner of the Special Child Actress Award. With her recent portrayal as the young Yoon Soo Wan in the widely popular drama “Angel Eyes,” Nam Ji Hyun is slowly making the transition into more adult roles. She grows more beautiful every day, and we’re excited to see what comes next!
