The sixth place belongs to Kwak Dong Yeon, Lee Junho, Kim Young Dae and Hwang In Yeop. These faces’ dramas that were released in 2021 were all successful.

Hwang In Yeop “scored” by playing the second male lead in “True Beauty“. Kwak Dong Yeon took on a supporting role in “Vincenzo” but was also extremely impressive. Kim Young Dae gained a huge fan base thanks to the character Ju Seok Hun in “Penthouse“. Junho was the most successful one with the leading role in “The Red Sleeve”.

Top 5: Song Kang, Kim Seon Ho, Rowoon, Wi Ha Joon

Song Kang had a busy year with films being released continuously. Although there were problems in terms of his acting, nobody could deny his handsome appearance.

As for Wi Ha Joon and Rowoon, both of them have been in the spotlight over the past year. Wi Ha Joon only played a supporting role in “Squid Game” yet attracted great attention, which helped him become the leading actor in “Bad And Crazy“. Meanwhile, Rowoon is a promising idol cum actor due to his great acting skills as well as outstanding looks.

Kim Seon Ho got embroiled in controversies after his ex-girlfriend accused him of forcing her to undergo an abortion. In 2022, Kim Seon Ho announced that he would take a break from acting activities.

Top 4: Ahn Bo Hyun, Yoon Chan Young

Ahn Bo Hyun

Ahn Bo Hyun and Yoon Chan Young ranked fourth. In 2021, Ahn Bo Hyun proved his ability through “Yumi’s Cells” and “My Name” with two completely different images.

Yoon Chan Young

Yoon Chan Young may be a strange name to us, but this actor started his career quite early as a child star. In the first month of 2022, Yoon Chan Young made his comeback through Netflix’s “All Of Us Are Dead“.

Top 3: Tang Joon Sang

Tang Joon Sang is really a very promising name in the Korean film industry. He does not have a top-notch look, so he chose a challenging film to conquer the audience with his talent. In 2021 with Move To Heaven and Racket Boys (2 completely different topics), this 2003-born actor played both roles very well. With existing talent, in this 2022, we can really wait for Tang Joon Sang to be more successful with new works. Let’s wait for good news from him.

Top 2: Koo Kyo Hwan

Koo Kyo Hwan

Top 2 in this poll is actor Koo Kyo Hwan, a face that is not young but is definitely new to the audience. Or rather, he emerged too late. He started acting for many years, but it was not until 2021 that he really caught the attention.

Played the second male role in D.P. but Koo Kyo Hwan is more prominent and loved by the public than the male lead Jung Hae In. Subtle and solid acting skills are the key to helping the actor score high marks. With the existing achievements, Koo Kyo Hwan‘s new film in 2022 will definitely receive attention. 

Top 1: Lee Do Hyun

Leading the list of the most anticipated new faces in 2022 voted by industry insiders is actor Lee Do Hyun. With his hard work, Lee Do Hyun also had a very successful 2021 with Youth Of May and Melancholia. None of the films caused a great effect, but they were all rated as good, in-depth films. In particular, his acting ability still captivates netizens.

In 2022, Lee Do Hyun receives such high expectations, partly because he will collaborate with Song Hye Kyo in the new project The Glory with an extremely attractive revenge theme. Maybe this is the time for this actor born in 1995 to shine.
