Our List Of The Best K-Drama Actors of 2021 (So Far)

Here are the Korean actors who impressed us and our readers this year

Naming the best K-drama actor this year is indeed very tough. Many excelled in portraying their roles, capturing viewers’ hearts along the way. 


One way to gauge whether an actor has done a great job in a project is by looking at how much impact he has made to the audiences. That’s an indication that he has made his character so believable and that he has played it masterfully, so much so he has earned legions of adoring fans and gained nods of approval from critics alike.


To celebrate and recognize these amazing Korean talents, we’re presenting the Metro Best K-Drama Awards 2021


The first of its kind in the Philippines, Metro recognizes the top dramas, actors and actresses, and other technical achievements in this upcoming digital awards event.  There will be a combination of Jury categories, People’s Choice categories, and special awards, that will cover dramas that are available to watch in apps or platforms accessible in the Philippines, and have aired in October 2020 and ended by October 2021.


The Jury categories will be decided by a panel of judges composed of Metro editors and experts, while the People’s Choice categories will be determined by our dear readers! Readers nominated their faves, and have voted for them via Metro’s social media channels.
