2019 is about to end and new dramas for the next year are announced little by little. Which actors do you think will rise in popularity in 2020?

It is hard to predict who will be the next Hallyu star but some actors especially caught the attention of viewers with their none main lead role this year. These actors might have better opportunities next year with better roles that would permit them to have more spotlight.

Last January, we named Kwak DongYeon, Ahn HyoSeop, Kim JaeYoung, and Kim KyungNam as the one to rise in 2019.  Ahn HyoSeop is the one who gained the most popularity with the lead role in "Abyss". Kwak DongYeon and Kim JaeYoung also got good roles in popular dramas in Korea. Kim KyungNam got cast in "Special Labor Inspect Mr. Jo" with an important role but the most important is that he was cast as part of Lee MinHo's new drama "The King: The Eternal Monarch".
