Im Si Wan always stands out thanks to his face being much younger than his real age. That’s why in 2012, he made everyone fall in love with his youthful image. Im Si Wan was so excellently handsome that the actor who played his role as an adult was under a lot of pressure and criticized for not having the perfect visuals like he did.

During the very first years of his debut, Hyun Bin once played a really small role, which was the handsome college student in the sitcom “Nonstop 4”. Only appearing in a few scenes, Hyun Bin drew keen attention although his visual at that time was not in its “golden days”.

The director of “Nonstop 4” revealed that he refused to choose Hyun Bin for the role because the actor didn’t have the “superstar” vibe and looked too skinny at that time. However, the role was eventually given to Hyun Bin because all the female staff and even the screenwriter liked him. This role was the very first step that made the currently top-level actor Hyun BIn.
