Korean idols, as we all know, are extremely skilled, ranging from singing to acting to modeling. There is only a thin line separating their music and acting careers. 

On this list, majority of them have taken their acting careers so seriously that we may even forget that they are still idols.

1. Cha Eun Woo (ASTRO)

Eunwoo is known as ASTRO’s face genius, and his on-screen charm matches his good looks. As much as he is a sight to behold on stage, he has also made an impact since his debut in the K-drama industry as he goes around sweeping feet off the ground and stealing hearts.

2. Kim Se-jeong (Gugudan, I.O.I.)

Kim Se-jeong is truly a breath of fresh air, radiating positive energy wherever she goes. She smiles from ear to ear as she dances with such energy on stage, and on set, she transforms into a bright-eyed, optimistic person, from her role as a high school student in “School 2017” to a quirky single woman on a blind date in “A business proposal.”
