Metro 2020 Year-Ender: The K-Drama Actors We Loved This Year

These actors wowed us with their impressive, intense, and heartfelt acting

2020 has been very generous with K-drama offerings, and there's already an exciting lineup of new titles next year. More great series are coming our way!   


Filipinos have been fans of K-dramas and Asianovelas since the early 2000s, and we've seen several waves to this fandom: a first wave brought about by the likes of Winter Sonata, a second wave led by My Love from the Star, and a third wave that crashed over us through Crash Landing on You


Now, in the face of a pandemic when people are mandated to be under quarantine in their own homes, K-dramas became more popular with a noticeable surge in new fans. And, of course, along with these shows, we're also introduced (or re-introduced) to a bunch of amazing and good-looking actors who have made our viewing experiences more enjoyable. 


At our recent Metro Best K-Drama Awards 2020, those who were nominated as Best Actor for the People's Choice category were Lee Min-ho (The King: Eternal Monarch), Hyun Bin (Crash Landing on You), Kim Soo-hyun (It's Okay to Not be Okay), Lee Joon-gi (Flower of Evil), and Yoon Shi-yoon (Train). Park Seo-joon (Itaewon Class) was one of the Best Actor nominees at the Jury category. Here's the full list of winners at the Metro Best K-Drama Awards 2020.
