      1. What??? Kim Bum is not on the list? That’s messed up! American girls say among Asian guys, no one is better looking than Kim Bum. He is beautiful and his looks are more perfect than many other Korean actors.

      1. No discussion! Kim Nam Gil is priceless. Unspeakably handsome and exceptionally talented. He’s really special, a real Korean treasure !

    1. Well though for me he’s not the most handsome in Korea, he sure is the best actor I’ve seen. He can easily persuade the viewers by his magical eyes…

  1. i love lee min ho forever,i think he’s the most popular not only in korea but all over asia…i’m a filipino and he has a lot of fans here in the Philippines,,hope “the heirs” will be shown in our country also..thanks!

  2. i think lee minho is the most handsome and even more popular than the rest,i’m a nigerian,and over here,alot of people are crazy over him.lee minho forever!!!

  3. Jang Keun Suk is my favorite Korean actor and singer, He’s completely gorgeous with a great personality and really smart. It’s very rare to find this kind of people. He’s the whole package.

    1. Yess ! So Ji-sub really should be on this list. He is sooo charismatic 😀 And I’m I the only one realized they got Yong-hwa’s name wrong ? :/

  4. I think you got the picture of Kim Hyun Joong wrong. I saw that a picture of him was posted as someone else, can you also fix this mistake please and….KIM HYUN JOONG is the best actor/singer in Korea! He is also one of the sexiest and most handsome men on the face of the earth! I LOVE HIM! <3 😉

  5. it is a pity that lee min ho is ranked 2nd popular actor …..he is much more handsome n cuter than hyun bin….n how come lee jong suk(i hear your voice) is not on the list….he is a great actor too…

    1. Yea Lee seung Gi is nice guy,and popular,cutes i like him but hes not handsome at all ah hahaahh
      Hyun Bin is the best,he deserved to win
      Congratulation Kim Tea Pyung…:)

      1. I think Lee Seung Gi is gorgeous and very handsome :) I expected to find him at least somewhere in top 3. Anyway… i do approve the first place of Hyun Bin, he is my second favorite korean actor :)

        1. I respect ur opinion, but a lot of other people commented online saying lee seung gi is not good looking at all. Not coming from my opinion. I just telling you what I’ve read.

  6. Lee min ho should be the first cutest korean actor,,i’m a Nigerian but i love him so much and he’s much handsome than others.

  7. Oh btw it’s still Kim Hyun Joong under the name Kim Soo Hyun! and for me Lee Min Ho is and always will be number one! n then Sukkie <3

  8. and where’s my TABI?????? T.O.P is the most handsome and charismatic actor. The Beauty of Jamshil. every noona’s and his sunbae’s loves him. tsktsk. how could you not to include him here? and also my precious Seung Ho. He’s young and in the military service right now but you can’t deny he’s too perfect to be handsome.

    Actually 5 out of 10 here on the list are not deserving to be here. T.O.P, Seung Ho, Jung Il Woo, Jo In Sung and Won Bin oppa. Where are they? O.o

  9. In my opinion Lee min Ho in number 1 …
    Park yoochun is number 2
    And jang woo young is number 3 …

    I don’t agree this list…it’s really bad

  10. For me lee min ho is best among all the korean actors.,its great he stood in 2nd position.,luv u alwayz n 4eva..,n m from Bhutan.,

  11. Wohooo , my hyun bin is definitely #1 , and really all of them is good looking and sooo handsome and very talented actors .. hmmm i think lee jun ki and song joong ki are missed in this list n.n
    Btw i’m from saudi arabia and we love korean Drama it is the best ever ^^~

  12. My number 1 will always be kim hyun joong. I also think lee min ho, Hyun bin, kim beom, Gong Yoo, kim joon, T.O.P, Rain are very gorgeous. Currently I am loving Lee joon gi. my opinion is these guys are all handsome and it is never going to be possible for the list to be perfect.(Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder)

  13. well i truly believed that jang keun suk should be on top of the list .. he has great looks + great voice + smart + talented = complete package!! hmm.. lee min ho is also a great contender! sukie forever

  14. why choi minho is not included? how come he’s one of my favorite actor…..
    but my most idol are jang geun suk and lee min ho.. they are best in acting.

  15. I like LEE MIN HO but how about SONG JOONG KI, PARK YOO CHUN and KIM SANG BUM they are also cute.. And I like them too and they are like the other men listed as well,. .:(

  16. Nice list but i personally think Kim Hyun Joong should have been in a better ranking and I would guess Micky Yoochun and Lee Seung Gi and Kim Bum are seriously handsome, but yea everyone has they’re own taste.

  17. Lee min ho is da best n i agree that kim bum should be added in the list as he is lee min ho best friend n he is handsome too

    1. In and other websites, Kim Bum was voted most handsome F4! Second place is lee min ho, then comes kim hyun joong. To be realistic, certain guys look as handsome as Kim Bum. However, I agree that no one is better looking than KIM BUM bcuz he’s perfect.

  18. lee min ho is the best for me !!! and i think not only for me.. i think he should be the 1st, and btw where is song joong ki or lee seung gi or park yoochun/ ::::

  19. I’d choose KIM SANG BUM… He is cute and he is an epitome of beauty… But I am looking for my INNOCENT MAN (SONG JOONG KI).. Oooh! Chinchaah Yeppudah.. :)

  20. Oh my gosh! Havent you guyz heard or watched Iljimae………what an interesting movie…actually,I cnt remember his real name but he’s handsome,good looking nd cute…..Lee Min Ho,I knew you would b among nd it’s true,,,good….where is Kim Bum???:-O:-(

  21. Lee Min Ho,,,wat a good looking guy…..he’s actually handsome…….People are really crushing on you over here…Keep it up

  22. Ya forgot 2 mention hyun bin & park yoochun. Their names came up the most on dis list too.
    Song joong ki and kim bum both have baby face, but kim bum is handsome for sure. Song joong ki is 28 but the guy looks naive and immature. Not coming from my opinion. Just telling ya what I heard other folks say.

  23. Kim Bum should be in the top 5. He’s gorgeous and so cute! Some guys do look as good as him, but no one is better looking than KB.


  25. EVERYBODY, JUST ADMIT THAT KIM BUM IS BEAUTIFUL. He is the epitome of Asian male beauty. We all know he’s one of the most handsome guys on the planet.

  26. I am a great admirer of Lee Min Ho and Jang Guen Seuk ……… i love their acting skills and we have a lot of fans here in India (Kerala ). we love you and support you…. :)
    saranghe oppaa <3

  27. Yh,Lee Min ho,kim bum and jang geun suk are really really handsome but phillip lee is one of the most handsome.With gorgeous big eyes,full sexy lips and a cute nose,he’s one of the most beautiful men in the world.And his smile *sighs,he definitely makes my heart beat faster though he’s not very popular

    1. @marianne
      phillip lee is good looking but NOT popular. Lee Min Ho and jang geun suk are among the hottest K-actors. Kim Bum is truly one of the most handsome guys in the world. He is perfect from head to toe. He still looks gorgeous without make-up. Cannot find any flaws upon the looks of this beautiful actor.

  28. I think Lee Min Ho must be at the top1 in rank… He is a very well-known actor in asia.. despite of that, He is a very nice actor of all.. I bet Lee Min Ho to be at the 1st rank…

  29. I love Lee Min Ho, Kim Hyun Joong but i cant find Kim Bum in this list….
    look at his pic….he is really Handsome
    and i really think Lee MIn Ho should be placed 1rst in this list…also Kim Hyung Joong is far better than the 7th place in this list….
    I love the cast in ‘Boys over flowers’ they are all so handsome…

    and why is there a pic of Kim Hyun Joong where it is titled Kim Soo Hyung???

  30. The picture of Kim Soo-Hyun is not him but of Kim Hyun Joong, so please change the photo. Otherwise I agree to these 10 Korean actors to be the best, though my priority would be different as Kim Soo-Hyun has recieved a price for best leading actor at his young age and that makes him number 1.

    1. i’ll definitely agree with you kim soo hyun’s acting performance is on highest level as evidenced by the success of his tv dramas like dream high, the moon embraces the sun and finally my love from another star plus his movies were successful too. kim soo hyu oppa fighting!

      1. I concur.. kim soo hyun is really amazing..aside from being so handsome his acting can really capture the heart of the viewer . I love the way he act and most especially when he sng and dance in dream was so awesome.. I love kim soo hyun so much..

  31. max changmin is the best and most handsome cute guy.if i were u i would have suggested him as the top handsome actor and singer.

  32. Why is the photo of my kim soo hyun missing???? really? the writer of this article put kim hyun joong’s photo instead? now girls you are missing the face of the cutest and the best korean actor in the world!!!!

    1. so true kim soo hyun is one of the most popular actor in korea today! his acting is superb so please change the picture immediately haha. saranghae kim soo hyun oppa! and where the hell is Song Joong ki and Park Yoochun? this should be updated!

      1. yeah. i agree with you sha. Kim soo-hyun is so cute & handsome. he is good actor. I also love him. Also
        my other favorite Soo Joong Ki is missing..i think this article is not updated.

  33. Wow …. Wait a second. Where’s SO JI SUB ???
    Hyun Bin ????? Really??? – Not this time, not this year . So unfair…..

  34. i dont agree with your list at all. i know much better looking and hotter korean actors.. most of these ones are lame…

  35. I can’t agree with this…..i m not able to find kim bum and i dont think its fair……..ALL THE GIRLS ARE CRAZY ABOUT HIM INCLUDING ME ..
    Saranghae oppa @kim bum

  36. Yeah..three of my favorites were included..lee min ho, jang geun suk & park soo-hyun..but where’s d photo of soo-hyun? is this updated? if so, where’s soo joong ki of the highest grossing korean movie of 2013 A werewolf boy? & park yoochun of missing you?

  37. Who made this????
    1. HIS NAME IS JUNG YONGHWA not Yong junghwa
    2. the guy you said to be Kim Soohyun IS ACTUALLY A PHOTO OF KIM HYUNJOONG

    WHAT THE FRICK REALLY??? -_-;;;;

  38. I think Im Jae Bum should be on 1st….like in 2013 he was in 1st…and I think next year Jae Bum would be on 1st…..Jae Bum is very- very much popular in Asia….and u all may know that Asia is the largest continent…and every person of Asia like Jae, I think that Im Jae Bum should be on top…. and u can see how cute +handsome Jae Bum is….

  39. i think hyun bin deserved that he is number 1 and he will be always number 1 he is my best actor ilove him verry much

  40. WTF! , this list is missing ALOT lol.. Lee Seung Gi is the most handsome thing on earth!, why is he not included!! and wat about Kim Soo Hyun!.. But anyway who cares about this list lol..

  41. Oh my god ., Lee Minho is should be the first of the top ten rank .. I wish the next competition will be him .. We love u Lee Minho ..

  42. i love lee min ho he deserve to be on the first rank because of the boys before flowers and other episode he has acted

  43. where is the photo of my idol kim soo hyun? why it is missing.? instead of kim soo hyun’s photo,kim hyun joongs photo was place. i am so upset!!!

  44. removed the photo of kim hyun joong and replace it of kim soo hyun’s photo and i prefer that kim soo hyun would be ranked 1!!!

  45. lee min hoo should rank 1st… he really deserves it.. kim bun is missing..bun has a cute&pleasent smile..rank him in 2nd position…

  46. Im iranian girl. Here kim hyun joon& lee min ho are the most popular ….
    I think just beacuse they heir
    but i think iranian guys are beautifull than korean ones .like milad keymaram& mehrdad sedighian& mostafa zamani& …….
    If you dont knew theme you can serch & see with your eyes
