13 Hot Korean Actors Who Played Military Men In K-Dramas And Films

We loved seeing these men in military uniform

We’ve seen different types of men in K-Dramas—the dashing CEO, the heir of a chaebol, the prince or king from another era/universe, the doctor, the lawyer or prosecutor, etc. While we love our oppas in their portrayals of these characters, there’s a certain appeal with actors who play the gritty (or neat) and stern military men onscreen, and are especially attention-grabbing in their uniforms.

The most recent examples are Metro.Style cover star Hyun Bin and his role as North Korean military captain Ri Jeong-hyeok in Crash Landing on You and Lee Min-ho as King Lee Gon, who led a naval battle scene between the Kingdom of Corea and Japan, in The King: Eternal Monarch

As we admire these men in military uniform, we’re serving you a list of Korean actors who took on this role in K-Dramas and films.
