Taemin‘s “Pretty Boy” song in my Instagram story was the biggest hint about this week’s article. It is all about the pretty boys of South Korea who are incredibly gifted. There are a host of singers, actors and reality stars that fans are anxious to see in a main role (instead of just the second lead or supporting character). Here are BTSCelebs’ picks for next year.
“Heart Signal 3” cast member In Woo
Early in the series, the engineering manager was a favorite among the ladies in the Channel A dating show. Even though Cheon In Woo may be a rookie when it comes to television, his seemingly down to earth personality and welcomed honesty instantly makes him a fan favorite. I think a short and sweet web series would be the best place for him to start! I have to admit his ending on Heart Signal makes me very curious about his future plans in entertainment.
The former U-KISS member and After School Club host continues to make an impressive name for himself as a solo artist by staying active on social media and landing coveted interviews (with stars like Nick Cannon and Joey Fatone). However, it was his role in the 2015 Naver TV Cast web series “About Love”, that made the biggest impact on me (and you can add “Kevin’s Kitchen”). His love story with LABOUM’s ZN in AB was so sweet. There had to be so much more to the story that could have been shared. His acting was very decent for a rookie, and he needs to make a return to rom-coms asap.
SHINee’s Key (Kim Ki Bum)
After being a longtime fan of SHINee, I think Key is the best dancer and actor in the entire group. They are beyond all talented, but his skills always stood out a little more. For example, he was hilarious the 2016 tvN comedy food drama “Drinking Solo”, while his supporting part in the 2017 MBC action series “The Guardian” was believable.
Seo Ji Hoon
His innate acting skills only seem to improve as the years fly by. I first saw him in the 2018 OCN romance My First Love. Even though he technically landed the starring role, it was only the younger version of the main star. He had to share the part with another person, and in the end it seemed more like the second lead. History continues to repeat itself with many of his dramas since. Seo’s current series , To All The Guys Who Loved Me (Men are Men), his role is 100% lovable and deserves to win the leading actress’ heart. Nonetheless, the only way to secure success is to headline his own romance next year.
I’m hoping these guys land the roles they love in 2021!
