Joynews Poll of Top Drama Scene Stealers of 2020 Goes to Oh Jung Se Followed by Han So Hee and Lee Sang Yi

The Joynews Poll celebrating the paper’s 16th anniversary continues and this time the topic is Top K-drama Scene Stealers of 2020. I have tons that come to mind, love this topic because it highlights up-and-comers as well as sometimes overlooked veterans and character actors/actresses. Getting the most votes with 42 nods is Oh Jung Se for scene stealing both It’s Okay to Not be Okay and The Good Detective this year. You can also give him 2019 thanks to his turn in When the Camellia Blooms, the man is nearing new god levels of turning out diverse and immerse performances. Second place with 34 votes is Han So Hee for being the mistress in The World of the Married, then Lee Sang Yi got 32 votes for weekend drama Once Again so very close between these two. After that the votes trail off: 11 votes to Lee Cho Hee also for Once Again, 10 votes went to Kim Jung Hyun and 7 to Seo Ji Hye for their wonderful own story in Crash Landing on You, Lee Joon Hyuk took 6 votes in Secret Forest 2, Kim Eung Soo in Kkhondae Intern got 5 votes, and lastly both Kim Ji Hoon in Flower of Evil and Jeon Hye Jin in Secret Forest 2 got 4 votes.
