In the new drama, Choi Jin Hyuk will play a prosecutor named Koo Dong Chi who fights to stay on the right side of the law, even in the face of colleagues who blur the lines between corruption and justice, right and wrong. We can’t wait to see Choi Jin Hyuk playing a tough prosecutor who brings bad guys to justice. If there’s anything this actor has perfected in his many popular drama roles in recent years is a strong male characters who protect the people around him.

To get emotionally ready to see Choi Jin Hyuk in his new drama, “Pride and Prejudice,” which starts Monday, travel down memory lane with us at his past roles that have solidified his status as one of the hottest Korean actors working today!

Emergency Couple (2014)

In this medical drama series, Choi Jin Hyuk plays Chang Min, an emergency medicine physician doing his internship rotation at a hospital. When one of the other interns happens to be his ex-wife, Jin Hee (played by Song Ji Hyo), work life becomes that much more complicated in an already stressful and demanding emergency department.

Heirs (2013)

In no other role has Choi Jin Hyuk been more sophisticated and debonaire than in his role as Kim Won, the successful young executive running his father’s conglomerate.

Gu Family Book (2013)

Although Choi Jin Hyuk had starred in many dramas since launching his acting career after winning the grand prize in the KBS reality talent show “Survival Star Audition” in 2006, it was his fierce, commanding performance as the beast Wal Ryung, the guardian god protecting the Jiri Mountains, in this supernatural drama in 2013 that elevated his status to a major star. Evil never looked so good!

I Need Romance (2011)

We had no problems believing that Choi Jin Hyuk’s character in this drama series is a genius. His Bae Sung Hyun character is a member of Mensa, has a double degree in business and hotel management from an Ivy League college and even went on to earn a Ph.D. Brains also never looked so good!

It’s Alright, Daddy’s Daughter (2010)

The noticeably baby-faced Choi Jin Hyuk plays Hyuk Ki, a hard-working, driven young man who works all kinds of odd jobs to put himself through law school and become a prosecutor. With his hard-earned credentials, he helps the heroine get the justice she seeks in this touching drama.
