Missing the stars of “Itaewon Class” already? Here are some of the cast members’ other Korean drama characters. ❤
1.) PARK SEO JOON (as Park Saeroyi)
Before “Itaewon Class,” Park Seo Joon starred in various romantic comedies including “What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim” with Park Min Young, “Fight For My Way” with Kim Ji Won, and “She Was Pretty” with his “Kill Me, Heal Me” co-star Hwang Jung Eum.
2.) KIM DAMI (as Jo Yi Seo)
“Itaewon Class” is Kim Dami’s first Korean series, but she starred in the Korean film “The Witch: Part 1. The Subversion,” alongside “Parasite” and “Train to Busan” actor Choi Woo Shik.
3.) KWON NARA (as Oh Soo Ah)
Kwon Nara starred in “My Mister” with IU, and as Ji Chang Wook’s ex-girlfriend in “My Suspicious Partner.” Her first lead role was in “Doctor Prisoner” as the psychiatrist Han So Geum.
The actor may have portrayed the ruthless and unrighteous CEO of Jangga Group, but Yoo Jae Myung had his fair share of comical roles. He starred as Pa-o, the bodyguard of King Jinheung (portrayed by Park Hyungsik) in “Hwarang: The Poet Warrior Youth,” the series also stars his “Itaewon Class” co-actor Park Seo Joon. He then worked with Park Hyungsik again via the romcom “Strong Girl Bong Soon,” as the father of Park Bo Young’s character.
If you want to see more of his “good father” side, Yoo Jae Myung is also known for his role in “Reply 1988” as one of the neighborhood dads.
5.) AHN BO HYUN (as Jang Geun Woo)
Just like Yoo Jae Myung, Jang Geun Woo isn’t always the villain in his other Korean drama projects. The actor portrayed Park Min Young’s best friend in “My Private Life,” a timid and upright warrior in the Netflix original “My Only Love Song,” and one of Captain Yoo Shi Jin’s (Song Joong Ki) soldiers in “Descendants of the Sun” as Alpha Team’s First Sergeant Lim Gwang Nam (a.k.a. Piccolo).
6.) LEE JOO YOUNG (as Ma Hyun Yi)
Known for her androgynous looks, Lee Joo Young portrayed a transgender in “Itaewon Class.” She also starred as one of Lee Sung Kyung’s best friends in “Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo.” The actress even acted alongside “Crash Landing on You” star Son Ye Jin twice, first was in the film “The Negotiation” (which also stars #CLOY actor Hyunbin) and in the series “Something In The Rain.”
7.) KIM DONG HEE (as Jang Geun Soo)
The actor first debuted in the web series “A-TEEN” as Ha Min, and the top Korean drama “Sky Castle” as one of the Cha twins, Seo Joon. “Sky Castle” and “Itaewon Class” are both top-rated JTBC dramas. “Itaewon Class” is second in terms of viewership, while “Sky Castle” is the overall top drama. Our Dong Hee’s future is looking bright!
