A Look Back on the Breakthrough Korean Stars of 2022

Here’s a list of some Hallyu scene stealers who made it big last year

Last year, some of the most popular Korean content helped cement their actors’ lead to breakout status by giving them a shot at key characters and unique roles. Park Eun Bin, for one, has garnered attention for playing the titular character of a courtroom lawyer with autism in Extraordinary Attorney Woo.


While not every young actor with a standout screen persona is also bestowed the opportunity to become a star, it seems that Shin Ye Eun has truly aced her four dramas in 2022, thanks to her ripe talent. Her versatility as an actress is also now magnified, especially for her take on a villainous high schooler in the revenge series The Glory.


From rookie stars who landed their first major role to Korean drama regulars who have had a bigger stage to perform, these Hallyu artists are proof that with talent demonstration done right, everything is possible.
