Korean actors who've starred in K-pop music videos

When they're not showcasing their superb acting skills in K-dramas or movies, you can see Korean actors do their ~thing~ in K-pop music videos. IDK about you, but I still get *surprised* from time to time whenever I spot one of my 99+ oppas or K-drama queens in these clips!

Here are some Korean actors who've appeared in K-pop music videos:

1. Song Joong Ki in "Men Are All Like That" by Kim Jong Kook

Fun fact: Lee Kwang Soo revealed that he was invited to the set of this MV and he initially thought that he'll star as the protagonist. It turns out,  Kim Jong Kook asked him to come because he thought Song Joong Ki will get bored during filming, LOL! 

Joong Ki also recently appeared in Heize's "HAPPEN" music video, and he shared that he's a fan of her music.

2. Han So Hee in "Tell Me What To Do" by SHINee

Fun fact: Before she made her K-drama debut, Han So Hee's first on-screen appearance is in the video of this SHINee bop.


She was also the female lead in Jung Yong Hwa's "That Girl"!

3. Lee Min Ho in "KISS" by Sandara Park

Fun fact: Lee Min Ho and Sandara Park kissed not just once, twice, or thrice—but 50 times (you read that right) in this MV! Also, if you look closely, you'll see a bb Kim Woo Bin.

4. Seo Ye Ji in "Let's Not Fall In Love" by BIGBANG

Fun fact: Seo Ye Ji mentioned in an Arirang interview that she and G-Dragon filmed their scenes without saying a single word to each other because they're "both very shy around strangers."

5. Choi Woo Shik in "Congratulations" by DAY6

Fun fact: Choi Woo Shik used to be under JYP, the entertainment agency that handles DAY6. He is now managed by Management SOOP.
