Netizens Compare Handsome Seo Kang Joon's Stagnant Career to Byeon Woo Seok

Is his rise to fame still possible?

No one can deny the fact that visual appearance is a decisive factor in the success of a K-Drama actor's career, but that doesn't guarantee explosive success for every handsome face. A Korean netizen recently pointed out in a viral post that there was a K-Drama actor whose career trajectory was "as unfortunate as Byeon Wook Seok's", whose popularity exploded with his latest K-Drama , Lovely Runner, and who has already worked on many successful projects. Her roles didn't get her noticed for years, however, before Strong Girl Nam Soon kicked things off, and Lovely Runner accelerated her exponentially.

The actor whose career is even more unhappy than Byeon's, according to the netizen, is Seo Kang Joon. Widely appreciated for his captivating visuals, Seo, who debuted in 2013, has delivered impressive performances in leading roles in iconic K-Dramas such as Cheese in the Trap, The Third Charm, and When the Weather Is Fine.

When The Weather Is Fine romance drama

Although Seo is a star in the industry, netizens believe that his potential is much greater and while some of them think that he just needs to have the right project to finally get the popularity he deserves , others think that Seo has already had his moments of glory and that it would be difficult for him to surpass them. Some even joked that the industry is so saturated that he could well be replaced by trot singer Park Hyunbin (whose Seo is considered a dead ringer), if he even lets himself go. 'a tiny bit.

Several Internet users have indeed shared their opinions and below we bring you some of the comments:

  • To be honest, Seo Kang Joon should have gained popularity during Cheese in the Trap. There are already too many male actors, and if he slacks off even a little, Park Hyunbin will emerge... But since he has the necessary acting skills, he should follow the path of Lee Je Hoon instead than being a star
  • Despite his strong acting skills, he is often treated as if his only asset is his looks, and he ends up finding himself in roles that boil down to being a "visual genius". Since his acting skills are excellent, I hope he can star in period dramas, noir films, or appear regularly in Netflix dramas and other similar projects.
  • If Seo Kang Joon fails to become famous like Byeon Woo Seok, it is because, unlike the latter, he has already had the opportunity to get noticed several times and each time, he has not been able to make a big breakthrough. He's already done everything he could as a celebrity, so either he continues to live like this, taking on projects from time to time, or he finds a good project that showcases his acting skills. Too many opportunities presented themselves for him to make a sudden and sensational impact in Korea and as a fan I find this very unfortunate
  • Has he not already managed to make a name for himself?
  • Speaking of Park Hyun-bin, I saw recently that he is back in shape. He lost weight after his demobilization and took care of himself so well that he became handsome again. If you compare him today to when he was at the top of his game, during the filming of Cheese in the Trap, who do you think is better looking?

Hello . I love him..very good actors..deserves roles commensurate with him. We were very good actors with good scripts. But really disappointing actresses. The castings are disastrous...we stick with actresses who really don't have the capacity for a role nor the build. .s is sloppy and too exuberant… very often we have difficulty watching drama and film because of the behavior of the actresses. following the Korean evolution since 2010… we see that it is deteriorating…. sincerely from France


Seo kang joon is the actor who opened the doors to k-dramas for me. He was breathtaking in his dual role in “are you human too?” » He was very good because he was very fair. So he can be a very good actor. It remains to find other good roles for him. I haven't necessarily been touched by other titles or series synopses with him yet. But, he has a new drama project that speaks to me well and I will be there. It will undoubtedly prove itself.


If it doesn't all come down to the beauty of the actors, frankly there are quite a few who have no other talents than their looks!!! Recently several series with Rowoon disappointed us greatly because he really seemed bored and his performances were in short supply!!
However, I discovered him in TOMOROW where he was breathtaking with emotions!!!
Now, I think that the roles given to him don't please him and it shows in the series!! On the other hand, I saw him singing again and there he had regained his joy of living!!
All that to say, without talent and a real desire to share one's emotions, even being very beautiful does not serve much purpose other than being zapped by the spectators

to your bet

Yes excellent actor I love it ❤️

Beauty doesn't matter, sorry, I immediately detect a bad actor, it's totally unpleasant, I'm boycotting
