Kim Soo Hyun, Song Joong Ki Among Selection of Male Actors in First Release From the KOFIC Korean Actors 200 List

The Korean Film Council (KOFIC) is assembling a list call the Korean Actors 200 (includes both actors and actresses) to represent the top acting talent from the industry with an express aim to raise further international recognition of the breadth and depth in the Korean film industry. A sneak peak of 9 of the male actors on the list complete with brand new headshots photographed expressly for this project showcases lots of collector worthy snaps. The 9 actors include Kim Soo Hyun, Oh Jung Se, Lee Byung Hun, Byun Yo Han, Song Joong Ki, Lee Ji Hoon, Ryu Seung Ryong, So Ji Sub, Yoo Teo, and Ryu Jun Yeol to whet our appetites. I love these pictures so much, I’ve always believed a great actor can express countless even in a still photograph and these definitively prove it. Can’t wait for the full list release!

  2. Wooooww impressive!!!! Waiting for Hospital Playlist boys.

    I wonder if Wonbin would be on the list too… I miss Actor Wonbin!

  3. Someone said every week 20 actors name will be announced and it will be based on alphabetical order in Hangul..
    Honestly, I saw the tentative list but couldn’t believe there was no KTR or SKH..
    Few names really made me raise my eyebrows as if the organisers are filling up the names just for the sake of completing 200 movie actors.
    Maybe they included those actors thinking that they have the potential to go big in the future even if they don’t have an impressive resume atm.

    • Yeo jin goo was also included and i believe among the youngest actors to be included but no mentioned of him…oh sorry.i forgot..maybe the owner of this site did not like him

  4. So yup miss Koala , A list of actresses were also released today..Why did u skip them and wrote abt these 9 men only..You should appreciate them as well.. especially when in Chungmuro it is much harsher for actresses to survive.

    • You were bashing her for allegedly being an oppa fangirl. Yet when she posted about the actresses, you’re nowhere to be found appreciating them. Ha!

  5. Saw list of 100 names on instagram.
    No name of park bo gum / yoo ah in/ kim so hyun also kim tae ri who womn so many awards.
    I think list is random.
    Happy to see park shin hye,kim hyan gi,kim yoo jung,kim sae ron and yeo gin joo 🙂

    • Probably not yet listed in the first 20 for this week…
      see the official website:

      Park Bogum is listed.

    • I think Park Bogum is there. YAI, not sure. Kim So Hyun, not on the list. And a lot of comments were saying that Kim Tae Ri is not there. I’m surprised with Kim Tae Ri and Yoo Ah In if true that they are not on the list, as they are prolific in films. Kim So Hyun is not so active in the movie field and has less representative movie under her belt, hence her non-inclusion.

    • I saw a few months ago the huge picture with the 200 names and I could swear I saw Park Bo Gum. I’m not sure about Yoo Ah In but the list wouldn’t make sense without her name on it, the one that I looked for and couldn’t find is Kim Tae Ri, she is representative of actresses of her age range in movies. Kim So Hyun she is not active in cinema and does not have a job to support her yet, so I justify more that her name is not included.

  6. I wish these were all in B&W! The full list doesn’t seem to be public yet because there are definitely a few missing key players.

    I became such a fan of Oh Jung Se after IOTNBO and I think his photo here is the best.

  7. Happy to see Byun Yo Han, So Ji Sub and Ryu Jun Yeol here, they’re all totally deserving, but I especially love these three!
    I think the list isn’t complete yet, otherwise it wouldn’t make any sense if Yoo Ah In isn’t included lol

  8. YAI needs to be on that list. He’s a true chameleon! Kim Soo Hyun is aging beautifully. He’s broken out of that boyish look. Really like that.

  9. Well, what the POINT of that list??
    They saw to promote further the korean movie industry. How???
    Before I watch a film I need to check if the lead actors are in the list? That will guarantee me quality?
    Or I am not supposed to doubt this?

    Who are those people to decide which actor or actress can help the industry? Prophets?

    The only reason for me to create this list is to try to “hint” the directors who they are reccomended to hire.
    Something very shady is going on.
