Despite not having received adequate training, the following Korean stars were able to win the hearts of their audiences thanks to their outstanding acting abilities.
Korean moviegoers may be familiar with the six Korean stars listed below because they are all well-known names with exceptional acting abilities. However, few people know that these actors have never participated in any acting classes or training programs.
Nam Goong Min
Nam Goong Min studied mechanical engineering before deciding to pursue a career in acting. The actor, on the other hand, has never taken acting courses. The late artist Choi Jin Sil was the one who helped Nam Goong Min debut as an actor. After participating in a car insurance commercial CF with Nam Goong Min, she introduced him to her manager and helped the male star land his first role in the sitcom Daebak Family.
Lee Byung Hun
Lee Byung Hun is widely regarded as Korea’s best actor. However, this Korean star once admitted that he never learned how to act properly. After passing the 14th KBS talent audition in 1991, Lee Byung Hun’s acting skill was entirely gained via practical experience.
Kim Hae Sook
“National mother” Kim Hae Sook is always associated with the role of an honest mother or grandma. Despite having a significant collection of great works, Kim Hae Sook has never taken an acting class since she became an actor by accident. In 1974, Kim Hae Sook made her acting debut in MBC’s Chief Inspector.
Kim Yoo Jung
Kim Yoo Jung previously admitted that she had not received any acting training before starring in the first drama since she made her debut at the age of five. From her days as a child star through her adult years, she was still a master at evoking emotions in her audience. This is most probably thanks to Kim Yoo Jung’s natural ability and hard work.
Kim Sae Ron
Despite being the only Korean actress to have attended the International Film Festival twice when she was a child, in fact, Kim Sae Ron has never attended acting classes. Her parents aren’t famous or have any performing experience. Acting is probably the natural talent of this girl.
Heo Sung Tae
Few people are aware that Heo Sung Tae worked at a technological company before stumbling into acting. He auditioned for SBS Miracle Audition in 2011 and placed in the top five of the competition. Since then, he has acted as a gangster in a number of films, including Cross and Beyond Evil. No one believed Heo Sung Tae had never attended acting training as he portrayed the villain so brilliantly.
