All The Leading Men Kim Go-Eun Has Worked With

From Gong Yoo to Jung Hae-in to Park Hae-jin and now, Lee Min-ho, this actress has been showcasing her acting chops opposite these Korean heartthrobs

Kim Go-eun, who is starring in the upcoming K-Drama The King: Eternal Monarch with Lee Min-ho, has had an exciting and eventful eight-year career.

Without any prior acting experience, she debuted as the female lead in the provocative film A Muse in 2012. Here, she portrays the role of a high school student who takes on a part-time job as the cleaner of a well-known, 70-year-old poet; this literary genius later develops feelings for Kim Go-eun’s character and made her the inspiration for a short story he’s penning that explores his sexual fantasies about her.   

Despite her remarkable performance in the said film, it wasn’t quite the right time yet for Kim Go-eun to pursue this career full-time. So, she took a hiatus to go back to school. Two years later, she starred in the action thriller film Monster which gave viewers a glimpse of this young actress’ versatility. 

The movies that followed as part of her filmography have further proven her unique onscreen charm that contributes to her extraordinary take on the leading woman mold.

Her television debut was via Cheese in the Trap in 2016, followed by the widely popular Guardian: The Lonely and Great God (Goblin) in the same year.

The 28-year-old actress’ popularity soared, thanks to the phenomenal success of Goblin. But while it’s a huge blessing for her, it also put a lot of pressure on her when it came to choosing her next projects. 

The next movies she did after Goblin, Sunset in my Hometown and Tune in for Love, didn’t disappoint. They were just the right projects that Kim Go-eun felt were “less demanding” but are still good. 

Her impressive acting skills are part of the reasons why The King: Eternal Monarch is worth looking forward to. After displaying such a great chemistry in her K-Drama with Gong Yoo, it’ll be nice to see how she and Lee  Min-ho will create magic together on the small screen.
