Korean Rising Star Actor – Son Seok-koo, K-dram My Liberation Notes, K-Movie The Outlaws season2
Who is the rising star in Korea this year?
Who is the rising star in Korea this year? The actor’s name is Son Seok-koo. He had been spotlighted in dramas and movies in 2022.
If you are a big fan of Korean culture content, maybe you could find some videos and pictures about him in Instagram reels, Youtube Shorts, or anything at least 1time.
According to GOODDATA Corp., He has topped the ranking of the most talked-about actors in TV dramas for 4 weeks in a row. He is the toast of the town.
When he was young, he dreamed to be a documentary director. And after he was discharged from military service, he changed his mind and dreamed to be a basketball player.
But one day he decided to be an actor.
At that time, he was not a young age to be an actor in Korea.
Of course, I think age is not an important thing to make dreams come. But celebrities (like an actor, idol group singers, etc) sometimes age is considered an important thing.
Even though he wasn’t spotlighted by viewers at first, finally, now he is one of the hottest actors in Korea.
He debuted the American drama Sense 8. (It’s a Netflix original series.) He was spotlighted at that time because of the love line with Bae Doo-na in the drama.
And soon, he made his name through the drama “Designated Survivor: 60 Days” and Be Melodramatic”.
The drama Be Melodramatic was so popular among the 2030 women.
He gave us a strong impression of a character named Sang-su who is a film director. My friends replay that drama every summer season. If you are a big fan of romance, this is one of my recommendations in K-drama. You can watch it on Netflix.
In My Liberation Note, He plays the mysterious character “Mr. Gu”. The drama ended recently.
He is in The Outlaws Season2 is a criminal action movie.
It is making a new hit in the Korean downturn film industry caused by Covid19.
It was the first movie ranked of Ten Million Movie during Covid 19 and also, it was 5th at the Box office in the world.
In the prior season of the movie, the Characters were so impressive to viewers, and maybe it make him a burden.
But he did his role very cool and appreciated as a talented actor We can watch him in the movie casino, which will be released through Disney+ in the second half of this year. Look forward to his other character in new films.
