Old Korean Actors You Need To Check Out!!!
If you're an beginner at K-Dramas you probably won't recognize any of these actors/actresses unless they have been in a recent drama. Trust me, they have probably been in way more dramas than that one. We're going to look at 3, let me know if you recognize any of them.

1. Jang Dong Gun

He began his acting career in TV dramas after entering a talent contest in 1992. His first starring role was opposite Shim Eun Ha in the TV drama The Last Match. Jang Dong Gun moved on to film, enjoyed much success in hits such as Anarchists, Friend, Taegukgi, The Promise,, Typhoon, not to mention his debut in Hollywood in the film The Warrior’s Way, co-starring Kate Bosworth. He returned to his roots in television drama in 2000 starring alongside Chae Rim in the seriesAll About Eve, considered by some to be one of the best Korean dramas of all time. He continued to make films; however, in 2012, he made a much-anticipated return to television in the romantic comedy/drama series A Gentleman’s Dignity on SBS

2. Lee Byung Hun

Lee's most noticeable works are: Joint Security Area; A Bittersweet Life; The Good, The Bad, and The Weird; and I Saw The Devil.  Lee made his acting debut in 1991, when he auditioned in the KBS Super Talent, and got his first role in the television drama "Asphalt My Hometown". Lee's later movie, Joint Security Area, directed by Park Chan-wook, was a smash hit. He won Best Actor jointly with Song Kang-ho at the 2000 Pusan Film Critics Awards. After Lee's role in Bungee Jumping of Their Own, his acting gathered widespread recognition. In 2001, he played the role of Lee Min-chul in the Korean drama Beautiful Days with Choi Ji-woo. He then starred in the drama All In with Song Hye-kyo, for which he won the Grand Prize (Daesang) at the 2003 SBS Drama Awards and Best Actor at the 42nd Paeksang Arts Awards.  For more info go here
