In Photos: 20 Veteran Korean Actors And Actresses Who Are Staples In K-Dramas (Part 1)

If you're a true K-Drama addict, you've definitely seen them in several series

If you've been watching K-dramas for so long, by this time, you're surely familiar with these faces. These veteran, seasoned Korean actors and actresses are regulars in our favorite Korean series. Although they're mostly doing supporting roles, they are usually memorable and pivotal in the plot. 


And because they're very recognizable, sometimes one can already tell a K-drama is going to be good and enjoyable by the mere presence of these celebrities in the cast. Given their decades-long careers and in-demand status, there are times, too, when they're doing two (or more!) projects at the same time or wrapping up one series and immediately starting on the next one.


That's the case, for example, with one of K-dramaland's favorite eommas (mothers), Kim Mi-kyung, who worked on five projects just for 2020 alone: Hi Bye, Mama!It's Okay to Not be OkayWas It Love?18 Again, and When I Was Most Beautiful. Oh Jung-se, 56th Baeksang Arts Awards Best Supporting Actor (TV) for K-drama When the Camellia Blooms (WTCB), also had a packed 2019 with the following series: Touch Your Heart,  WTCB, and Hot Stove League. This was shortly followed by hit K-dramas It's Okay to Not be Okay and The Good Detective this year.
