K-actor Childhood Photos Show Progression into Hallyu Stars of Today From Hyun Bin, Kim Soo Hyun, Lee Min Ho, Ji Chang Wook, and More

Come one, come all, come get all your oppa and dongsaeng childhood pictures galore and marvel at how everyone grew up into the hotties we know today. It’s impossible to deny that many a K-actress got some surgical help to become the current day beauties so it’s safer to marvel at the men of South Korean entertainment that have parlayed their natural heights and/or good looks into a star making career perfectly synched with the Hallyu era of the last two decades. Some have actually been cuties we watched onscreen and then hotties we witnessed in the maturation, i.e. Yoo Seung Ho, but others arrived before us seemingly fully formed in their hotness, i.e. Gong Yoo, Hyun Bin, and Lee Min Ho. Some took the boy next door route, i.e. Kim Soo Hyun, Song Joong Ki, and Park Bo Gum, and others are annointed the nation’s son-in-law like the perfect package, i.e. Lee Seung Gi. Whatever if your flavor, K-ent has it, and it’s adorable to go back and see their early days whether cute or just your average little joe.

  1. I love the kiddo So Ji Sub pic to bits. He looks the same and somehow those solemn features on a young kid just crack me up.

    Park Seo Joon and Seo Kang Joon also are very recognizable from the young pics. Gong Yoo got a glow up. Some others should lay off the ghostly bb cream in adulthood.

  2. Oh my God, this is way too funny, some were so chubby as little Kids. Really cute. Some plastic surgery here and there but oh well, they are all handsome and talented (some more than Others) and it is a pleasure to watch them.

  3. All of them are/ were good looking children to turn out into good looking adults.

    The only obvious are the rhinoplasty surgeries and veneers. Which are not major cosmetic projectures but super basic. I love it that they didn’t do the eye surgeries.

    Well there you go. One needs to be a cutie to grow up to be a hottie.

  4. lol.. when I’m seeing other actors who used to be chubby during their childhood, in my heart “owh.. they used to be chubby” . then when i reached kang haneul “omg so cuuteee!”

  5. Okay..so i saw a video where Hyun Bin’s school friends said that he had a fan club of his own..Girls from other school would flock around him but he used to be so shy..
    He was known for his good looks and grades in his neighbourhood.Lol!! There was even a poll where a highschooler Hyun Bin got more votes than the kpop group H.O.T??

  6. OMG. They are all soooo adorable. I feel like pinching their chubby cheeks! Thank you so much Koala for the early Christmas present. You just made my day. I can’t wait for Koala to do one of their baby sons/daughters one day for the married ones. It will be fun to see if those celeb babies inherited any of their famous daddies’ prominent features. Dimples, moles, chubby cheeks, etc. Lol.

  7. It’s kind of cute to see how most of the actors already seemed to know how to pose for the camera as a kid – to me, it kind of hints they were meant for the show business since the beginning šŸ™‚

  8. Still recognizable. Most of the pics were taken when they were babies, no wonder some people changed. But didnt mean they went under the knife. A few probably did. But most of them still look the same tho.

  9. Interesting compilation. I am most surprised with LDW’s pic. The younger self looks more masculine and I think it’s because of how they put make-up on his eyes in drama and shoots.
