When I first started doing Top 5’s for HallyuBack, I started thinking about all of the lists that I could make that people would be interested in. Naturally, ranking my favorite Korean actors was one of the first things that came to mind. These guys with their smoldering good looks, chiseled abs, cheeky grins, shampoo ad hair and impeccable fashion taste are certainly not something for any drama lover to complain about. Heck, when I first got into dramas my screen saver was a mix of their faces!


And frankly, let’s be honest, you can’t have a good drama without a smexy lead that is totally swoonworthy. It’s almost impossible.. Name one.. seriously! I don’t know if I can..

Well, back in 2012 I made my initial Top 5 Korean actors and it’s 2014 now. There have been a lot of changes to the drama world, and I’ve discovered many new smexy Korean men. It’s about time I updated the list for sure! I did make one stipulation though; I couldn’t choose any of the guys that I had already chosen to be on my previous list. Believe it or not, this was actually a difficult clause! To not include Gong Yoo was difficult, Jang Geun Seok too finished off Beautiful Man looking particularly dapper, and while Rain isn’t making any new drama in Korea at the moment, I’ve been singing 30 sexy in my head a lot lately.. he is the prince of Kpop after all and a mighty fine actor!

So here’s my top 10 smexiest men of the moment. If you have a favorite that I haven’t included in my list or think that I totally messed up my ranking, go ahead and tell me in the comments. Everyone has his or her own opinion!

    Lee Jun Ki

    • Korean Drama Junkie

      Yes, I definitely agree with you. LEE JOON GI is the most handsome and famous KOREAN FACE. Look at his iconic flawless porcelain skin, killer PHOENIX eyes and sensual CUPID BOW lips. He is HOT!

  • sooyoung4ever

    Yoon Shiyoon, Joowon, Lee Jongsuk and Lee Seunggi, none of them are really sexy, they’re more cute. But it’s maybe up to different tatse too, eg in Korea, they called Lee Seunggi a charming sexy man too.
    But Seo In Guk and Sung Joon, meh… I don’t see both sexy or cute.

  • Naruto Uzumaki

    Lee Seung Gi! This man is a whole package Hot, handsome, cute, charming.. he just makes u fall in love with him! i’ll place him 1st.. but respect ur perspective too lol

  • Shab

    LEE SEUNG GI FOR SURE!!! <3 <3 <3

  • nouran

    so ji sub

  • Donia Shoukry

    maybe its time to change the list that you have as “at the moment” that looks like forever.
    lee min ho has 29%. i know that you said that the cant do it for you and all. Hard luck people love him! oh and what was that he’s an okay actor? not so sure about that… i mean why would an “okay actor” win over all he others?!
    other than your opinion about lee min ho you’re doing great, thats what i think…. keep up!

  • Noura

    Bang Sung Joon *^*

  • mia

    Lee MIn Ho oppa all the way!!! <3 <3 <3
