The Most Regal Korean Actors As Emperors, Kings, And Princes In K-Dramas

They look so striking in traditional Korean clothing

Make way for Your Majesty (or shall we say, pyeha)!


Many Korean series are historical dramas set in Joseon or Goryeo eras. Some depict these eras along with the modern day, like Legend of the Blue Sea and Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo, where the characters are either reincarnated or transported back in time. Some feature characters as members of the royal family or as monarchs in more modern settings like the Princess HoursThe King 2 Hearts, and recently, The King: Eternal Monarch


More than the exciting plot lines of these historical dramas (or sageuk), what adds to their charm are the Korean actors who bring the characters of emperors, kings, crown princes, and princes to life. Taking on these regal roles is not the easiest thing to do—they need to make their characters look dignified and worthy of respect. And these actors manage to do just that, plus they look so handsome in traditional Korean clothing too!
