Although they are dubbed the queens of the Korean screen, but recent comeback dramas of top-tier actresses Song Hye Kyo, Kim Hee Sun, and Son Ye Jin have not been able to become hits.

Han So Hee
Han So Hee is without doubt one of the most popular K-drama rising stars at the moment. She has both beauty and potential.
