Jun Ji Hyun in Kingdom Season 2
With her breath-taking looks and excellent acting, Jun Ji Hyun has definitely made heads turn in the Korean Entertainment industry. Her leaning, though, has been more towards the thriller genre. She has always been one of the top preferences for roles and cameos, thanks to her on-point acting in Kmovies and Kdramas.
Jun Ji Hyun made a cameo appearance in Kingdom 2, Netflix produced Kdrama. Fans definitely went gaga with this role and did create a couple of theories and how she would then be a permanent part of this Kdrama. She played the role of a mysterious character, and that has received so much love that even the makers have decided to bring her character in the future project. As per sources, there is a special episode, Kingdom: Ashin Of The North, which will be like a mini film that will further enlighten the audience on her journey as the mysterious character. It should soon be released sometime this year; we cannot wait for it!
Yeo Jin Goo in Start Up
The light-hearted, goofy guy, Jin Goo, has been loved since his first appearance. He embraces every role with so much affection that we always want to watch more of him.
Yeo Jin Goo had technically made 2 cameos in Kdrama Start Up—one when his voice was used for Han Ji Pyeong, the lead’s AI speaker. Trust me, since then, most of us are researching and trying to have the same voice settings on Siri and Alexa. Second, when we see him interacting with the lead again. He played the character of an enthusiastic, young entrepreneur, Hong Ji Seok. It is definitely worth a watch; he always brings a smile to our faces.
Kim Soo Hyun in Crash Landing On You
Kim Soo Hyun is one of the most versatile actors in the Korean Entertainment Industry who has played some of the most unforgettable characters in Kdramas and movies. He is just everywhere, and he makes sure he shines every time he appears on a screen.
Kim Soo Hyun cameo in Crash Landing On You stood out for many. His appearance made us appreciate Crash Landing On You, the Kdrama, a little more. He played the character of Soo Hyun from his movie, Secretly, Greatly, taking all of us down memory lane. Sure, most of us rewatched Secretly, Greatly after this scene in Crash Landing On You. Kim Soo Hyun has come a long way, and we could not be any happier for him. We hope to see him in more characters.
The thing is that once you ace in your work, you continue to be showered with more opportunities. The above list is an example of the same, and if you haven’t watched them yet, then it’s time you do. We only hope that each of them continues to entertain us with their extraordinary performances.
