K-ent Reports on Legendary Supporting Male Lead Performances in 2020 with Kim Sun Ho in Start-Up and Ahn Bo Hyun in Kairos

This article is literally the most obvious topic with zero surprise but it’s still nice to acknowledge the well-earned success of both talented actors. K-ent this week wrote an article on the “legendary level” of supporting male lead performances turned in by two actors in 2020: Kim Sun Ho in Start-Up and Ahn Bo Hyun in Kairos and Itaewon Class. For Kim Sun Ho, industry insiders say his sweet smile, deeper side voice, and delicately nuanced emotional and steady acting really shone and won audiences over. Ahn Bo Hyun started the year playing a desperate character in Itaewon and is ending it as the antagonist in Kairos, varied and dynamically able to stretch his acting. Industry insiders acknowledge that for supporting male leads to shine does lay with the writer in how that character is written but needs great acting to bring it to life. In the end, these two actors succeeded on their own merits so super congrats!

  1. Ahn Bo Hyun’s character in IC ended up pretty disapointing, no growth… I think his little brother was far more interesting. His Kairos’s character is kinda the same.

    I think Kim Bum was better than ABH as a second lead. He was really great as Rang.

    • @joane Still better than the record-breaking 1% rating of your girl’s drama šŸ˜‚
      So following your logic, KYJ has no star power whatsoever šŸ˜‚šŸ˜‚šŸ˜‚

    • The ratings does not do the drama justice. The drama is critically acclaimed. The reviews are great across the board and the drama is great. It’s unfortunate that the ratings are low.

  2. I fell for KSH quite hard since Catch the ghost. The drama was ok but boy did I love the male lead. I thought his acting was wonderful and he made the character swoony. Its his voice and smile * squeals *

    • I like KSH since 100 days my prince. Watched Catch the Ghost after that and was so impressed by his acting, especially scenes with his mom. The sadness shown in his eyes while he tried to put up a happy front pretending to be his father to cheer her up … the look of pain and desperation at times when he pleaded with her to remember him, her son šŸ˜­… Superb acting

  3. Happy for both for the acknowledgment. I caught an episode of I Live Alone with ABH and he seems like a super excited, wide-eyed little kid still finding his way in K-Ent.
