Four stars who regain popularity after major downfalls: Joon Ji Hoon surpasses Song Hye Kyo in a complete transformation to salvage his career 

These actors finally picked a suitable scripts that allowed them to shine. 

1. Song Hye Kyo

Song Hye Kyo was once a well-known name from the successful hits “Full House” and “Descendants of the Sun” but could not maintain the heat after with successive poorly written scripts, which drew criciticism of her supposed stereotypical, monotonous acting. 

However, the actress managed to find her glory with the two-part revenge drama series “The Glory.” She gracefully changed the audience’s mind with a character that has psychological depth, which drove the drama series to a new height on global charts. 

2. Kim Ok Bin

“Love to Hate You” is a major turning point in Kim Ok Bin’s acting career after a long time of struggling. The drama series is a romantic comedy that swept through various charts. At the time of the drama debut, it captured attention with a sweet and adorable story about love between two seemingly unloveable characters. 

Before, she shone with her role in “Sympathy for Lady Vengeance” and “Thirst” by Park Chan Wook. Her career suddenly went down the hills later with works such as “Children of a Lesser God,” “Arthdal Chronicles” and “Dark Hole.”

3. Joo Ji Hoon

One of the Hallyu icons Joo Ji Hoon, whose name is known by the exciting drama “Princess Hours,” was actually boycotted and relegated to the sideline when his personal controversies came out. At that point, it was thought there would be no return for the actor. Yet, Joo Ji Hoon made his way back to be an even more powerful star. 

“Along with the Gods: The Two Worlds” was the first mark of his return, followed by a series of hits such as “Kingdom” and “Hyena.” 

4. Lee Min Ho 

Lee Min Ho is, by no means, a stranger’s name in the industry. He has had a series of widely known works under his belt such as “Boys Over Flowers,” “The Heir” or “City Hunter”, along with a huge fanbase. Nonetheless, the actor has often been under fire for his questionable and stereotypical acting roles. It was “Eternal Monarch” that marked his supposed “downfall” with a remarkably low rating. 

Luckily for the actor, he was able to make a critical revival with “Pachinko” thanks to a change in his acting and a maintenance of professionalism in the project. He received a lot of praise from the critics.
