Yoon Sang Hyun is one of those rare K-drama leading men that got his big break late in his career. That’s now even harder to come by considering the penchant for flower boys in the industry and very young leading men thrust into playing older roles all the time. Yoon Sang Hyun is now 41 year old and his big break was almost six years ago with Queen of Housewives. He was the best thing about that drama and deserved every bit of of his popularity rise.
Since then I’ve only loved him in My Fair Lady (Please Take Care of the Young Lady) and Secret Garden but my fondness for his unique onscreen appeal continues even as he’s moved on now to older roles. He’s also moving on to the next stage of his life as Yoon Sang Hyun has revealed on an upcoming episode of Healing Camp that he’s in a serious relationship with a non-celebrity girlfriend six years younger than him, and they are planning to tie the knot in early 2015. Congrats to oppa and seeing such a low key and sincere reveal makes me happy.
Yoon Sang Hyun was actually the only reason I checked out I Hear Your Voice when it first aired last year despite my then Lee Jong Seok allergy. Sadly the drama doesn’t work for me but I’m glad that he’s doing a smart job with picking acting projects which also includes the dark cable drama Gapdong earlier this year. He’s not pre-packaged and overly manufactured as far as K-celebs go and sometimes just gives off this totally sincere appeal that feels refreshing.
I totally agree. I watched him on family outing and felt that he has a geniune personality. And he seems to be just generally all around good-natured. This has allowed me to enjoy all of his roles since. I think he has an enviable amount of success because he gets regular work, is good in every role and the paparazzi doesn’t seem to hound him. Keep it up Yoon Sang Hyun!
Oska’s lookin’ good! I’m so happy to hear that he found his true love~ I’m very fond of him. So are Cubans, btw… Queen of Housewives was the first drama to be shown there earlier this year, and it had ratings of over 70%. That was followed by My Fair Lady and Secret Garden (which Yoon Sang Hyun was also in), and they were very popular, too. Even Fidel Castro’s son has said that he’s a big fan of k-dramas.
I still want some Oska socks~ looks like he could use some, too.
one Oppa i dont feel so old for shipping
Oh Oska! Such a long time ago and I still smile thinking of you in Secret Garden. You are so unassuming and unafraid of making a fool of yourself.
I really enjoy him in IHYV as Lawyer Cha Kwan Woo. He’s just so earnest and adorable. I only watch him in IHYV and SeGa and he looks like a genuine actor.
Only good thing in the Secret Garden mess. And so agree. Refreshingly natural and interesting looks.
Congrats to Yoon Sang-hyun! He seems like such a nice guy.
Awww, I like him and adored him in IHYV and was shipping him with the leading lady alas…
He kind of looks like Kimutaku in certain angles, but a better looking Kimutaku.
Happy that he has finally found his soul mate. He has been talking about his wish to settle down since Secret Garden which is such a fabulous drama. His portrayal as Osaka led me back-watch his other dramas and tracked his interviews. He is such a down-to-earth, unpretentious person. By the way, Secretary Kim from Sega will also be getting married, in Dec.
He was the best thing about Secret Garden, super sexy pictorial, congrats to a darling guy!
awwwww my oska! He is the one that I love the most from secret garden hehe
I’m happy for you oppa, may your wedding plan run smoothly and wish all the best for you! congratulation and fighting! ^_^
His wife to be is a celebrity – singer Maybee
