A Fangirl’s bias list is sacred. But every one in a while you have a new actor that starts shaking up your rankings. Here are the actors that have moved up our bias list in the last year or so.
Day 13 – Up and coming actor that is messing up your bias list?
I know he’s been around a while, but Nam Joo Hyuk totally shot to my top 10 after Weightlifting Fairy. He hit my radar with Scarlet Heart Ryeo, and I was delighted to see him in the lead in WF. Not only is he good looking and he can act well, but he can really kiss! Honestly, it doesn’t matter how good looking you are, if you can’t kiss then I’m not interested (ahem, Lee Min Ho, ahem).
The answer to this would’ve been Park Seo Joon but I didn’t love him in She Was Pretty and I didn’t love him in Hwarang so maybe he’s only a potential bias ruinner when he’s the second lead… If V from BTS could get some more air time (and maybe lay off the “cute” just a tad), I’d be all over that action. But can he count as a bias ruinner if he’s my Kpop bias? Hmm… deep questions for the universe.
Ryu Joon Yeol, however. That guy is creeping up my bias list like a ninja. I loved him in 1988 and even though I didn’t like Lucky Romance, I loved him in it. All he needs is to be the lead in a halfway decent drama, and I’ll be done. I’m talking “Lee Min Ho who?” done. Give all the roles to Joon Yeol, done. Make him my iPhone screen saver, done.
Yoon Kyun-sang caught my eye in Pinocchio as the older brother with a tragic backstory. He then captured my heart as Moo-Hyul in Six Flying Dragons. I even liked him in Doctors, even though I did not love the drama. I am just happy to see others in Kdramaland feel the same because he is now starring in Rebel Who Stole the People. I am expecting great things from this rising actor!
Someday I will get my act together and answer first so all of my choices are not taken. I 2nd my co-bloggers choices and am throwing Park Bo Gum onto the pile. He has always been a standout in any drama, regardless of whether he is the lead, 2nd lead, or even a small character part.
