K-media Writes on Four Young Stars to Watch in 2021 – Lee Do Hyun, Ro Woon, Song Kang, and Jeon Yeo Bin

Nevertheless this really is a new bright era for K-dramas with so many genuinely good actors and actresses on deck to become solo male and female leads on their own. In 2021, it really has to be the Lee Do Hyun and Song Kang show and even better the two worked together on hit Netflix drama Sweet Home. Song Kang will have Love Alarm 2 (already filmed) and tvN ballet drama Navillera where he gets to work with veteran legends Sim Deok Chool and Na Moon Hee, while Lee Do Hyun will be back in KBS drama Youth of May set in 1980 during the Gwangju Uprising opposite his Sweet Home sister Go Min Si who plays his female love interest this time around. Idol actor Ro Woon will get his chance to prove Extraordinary You is not a fluke as he plays the ardent younger man lover in Sunbae Please Don’t Wear that Lipstick (She Will Never Know), and last but not least Jeon Yeo Bin has quietly amassed a ten movie resume but hasn’t had her drama spotlight yet but will have that chance as the female lead in highly anticipated tvN drama Vincenzo with Song Joong Ki.
