There"s a reason that these actors/actresses are always snagging the big roles; they bring life to their characters with a certain style and flair.

Who are the up-and-coming actors/actresses that we can expect to reign in the future? Here are some of allkpop"s choices for 7 K-Drama queens and their successors. Take a look!

We all love watching Korean dramas. Most of us are probably even guilty of neglecting the real world from time to time so we can go on K-drama benders and marathon our favorite shows.

They suck you in, make you laugh and cry, and keep you glued to your seat because you just HAVE to know if your favorite couple is going to end up together, or if the handsome spy is going to survive until the end. But K-dramas aren’t just exclusive to TV. Here’s a list of some of the best music videos with K-drama style plots!

1. T-ara, “Cry Cry”

If you"re enjoying the funny and tear-inducing scenes in the current k-drama "Fated To Love You," you may want to check out the Chinese version. The k-drama starring Jang Hyuk, Jang Nara, Wang Ji Won and Choi Jin Hyuk is a remake of a Taiwanese drama of the same name.

In the 2008 Taiwanese drama the Jang Nara role is played by Joe Chen and Ethan Juan plays the Jang Hyuk role. Baron Chen plays the Choi Jin Hyuk role and Bianca Bai takes on the Wang Ji Won role. The series scored the highest average single episode rating in China and won several awards.

But "Fated To Love You" is not the first k-drama remake of a Taiwanese drama. One of the best-known k-dramas, often described as the gateway drama, is "Boys Over Flowers." Although it is based on a Japanese manga "Hani Yori Dango," it aired as two seasons of "Meteor Garden" before the Korean version

A huge part of the Korean drama industry has been taken over by remakes of foreign dramas and anime. An example of a recent remake would be MBC’s “Fated to Love You,” which is an adaptation of a Taiwanese drama of a similar name. Recently, a list of the Best three and Worst three drama remakes were made:

“It doesn’t get any better than this” Best 3

The top remake of all time is 2009 KBS drama “Boys Over Flowers,” which brought upon a worldwide F4 syndrome with a best rating of 33.5% and an average rating of 28.5%. It started Goo Hye Sun, Lee Min Ho, Kim Hyun Joong, Kim Joon, and Kim Bum. “Boys Over Flowers” was a remake of a Japanese manga of the same name.

It’s about time we show our love and respect for our favorite women in their 30s gracing our TV (or computer) screens with their beauty. Here are eight of those talented actresses who effortlessly prove that aging might be something to look forward to after all.

1. Choi Ji Woo

We start off strong, seeing as Choi Ji Woo is 38 and still wowing us to this day. Many fans know her from her emotional performance in Winter Sonata, but she can now be seen playing the titular character in the newly premiered The Suspicious Housekeeper.

2. Song Hye Kyo

Another actress well-known for her work in the seasonal Endless Love series, Song Hye Kyo is 31 and possibly—probably—even more beautiful than she was ten years ago

Top 8 Charming Actors With Bromances in K-Dramas

By in News posted Oct August 26th, 2014 No comments

Bromance has become an important staple in Korean dramas. At times friendships between the male characters can be so endearing that viewers come to cheer them on just as much as the main romantic couple. Here are some of my favorite bromantic pairings!

1. Go Nam Soon (Lee Jong Suk) and Park Heung Soo (Kim Woo Bin) in School 2013.

These two are beyond adorable. Not only did their troubled friendship in School 2013 steal the hearts of viewers, but these models turned actors are actual friends in real life! I hope we can see more of their fantastic bromance in future projects.

2. Geol Oh (Yoo Ah In) and Yeo Rim (Song Joong Ki) in Sungkyunkwan Scandal

Who could forget the heartfelt and hilarious friendship between sullen Geol Oh and flamboyant Yeo Rim? These tight friends really knew what it meant to give each other support, regardless of the circumstances

Casting Drama: Should Idols Act? Written by Joyce On August 22, 2014

In recent weeks, drama land has been filled with news of idols being cast in lead roles — Sun-hwa in Rosy Lovers; Rain, Krystal and L in My Lovely Girl; Soo-young in My Spring Day. While idols venturing into the acting field is nothing new, I doubt there’s ever been such a high percentage of lead roles given to idols.

While there are a handful of idols who have successfully proven their worth in the acting world (Yoochun, Rain, Lee Seung-giLee JoonSeo In-guk, etc), it’s not surprising that most idol casting news is met with a healthy amount of skepticism and unhappiness

Joseon Gunman, Episodes 5-14: Gunning for Revenge Written by Joyce On August 20, 2014

Joseon Gunman is practically synonymous with Lee Jun-ki, serving as an extension of his action-filled resume. The more I watch, the more amazed I am how how far he has come since his My Girl days, carving a niche for himself as an action thriller star.

Disclaimer: Spoilers ahead.

After the first four episodes laid the groundwork for his revenge motive, the darker plot and tone starts to really kick in from there onwards. Yoon-kang (Lee Jun-ki) doesn’t disappoint as a lead character, bringing to the plate an intricately woven transformation from a carefree nobleman to a gunman full of vengeance, equipped with a occasionally questionable moral compass

Don’t forget, the bathroom isn’t too bad either!

Actress Jun Ji Hyun becomes honorary ambassador of Korean tourism

By in News posted Oct August 13th, 2014 No comments

On August 11, actress Jun Ji Hyun, the female lead of the mega-hit drama “My Love from the Star”, has been appointed as an honorary ambassador of Korea Tourism Organization (KTO).
Jun Ji Hyun is a famous Korean actress through many hit movies such as "My sassy girl", "The thieves", "The Berlin file",... She is growing as a Hallyu star again as the latest 21-episode drama "My love from the Star" gained a huge popularity in China. It attracted more than 2.5 billion hits on IQIYI, a Chinese video site, according to KeyEast.
Thanks to the drama, Chinese people are inspired to eat chicken and drink beer together, and follow Jun Ji Hyun"s fashion style. They also show their wishes to visit Korea and tour some of the drama’s locations.
Jun Ji Hyun shared her thought, “I’ll do my best to advertise how beautiful Korea is and how kind people are through dramas and movies to promote Korea’s charm to the world”

Jun Ji Hyun Is The Richest K-Drama Actress

The beautiful apartment that Jun Ji Hyun lived in when she played the Hallyu star Chun Song Yi in "You Who Came From The Stars" was actually a set specially built for the drama. But in real life the actress owns an impressive amount of real estate.

Many Korean actors and entertainment executives choose to invest their earnings in real estate but Jun Ji Hyun tops the list of real estate holdings among k-drama and k-movie actresses.

A wealth-tracking website named appropriately Chaebul.com, says that the appraised value of buildings owned by Jun Ji Hyun in Seoul totals about $13 million.

The factors that the site uses to appraise real estate value may fall short of actual market value, meaning that if she sold her properties tomorrow, they would certainly earn her more
