JTBC / Chris Lyon's Instagram

"Itaewon Class" is a highly awaited K-Drama. Park SeoJoon and Kim DaMi are the lead actors of this JTBC drama to air from Jan. 31.

It is based on the webtoon of the same title by Kwang Jin. It is set in an irrational world where the “hip” revolt of young people -who are united in stubbornness and courage- starts. Itaewon seems to have condensed all the world. In this little street, they are looking for their own freedom based on their values. “Itaewon Class” is their foundation legend. They open a food-related business.

In the 3rd teaser is introduced the founding members of Itaewon Class. You can watch it below.

Among them, there is the character Kim Tony who is from Guinea and is working part-time.

The character is acted by Chris Lyon. He is an actor, model, and music producer from the U.S.A born in 1993. Chris Lyon is part of LINK Management where is also actress Lee Seol ("Less Than Evil" (2018), "When The Devil Calls Your Name" (2019)).

I originally had no plans on watching the drama, but when Seungmin from Stray Kids posted a cover of the theme song Start, I decided to look into the drama. This drama is the perfect thing to binge, especially with quarantine!

Oh, I love, love, love this drama. Confined to my home in Florida, this is the perfect move to watch. So happy to see an actor of color and an actress portraying a transgender. A step in the right direction since this is a changing world.

Yes thank you for this. Why is this actor not listed in Google search cast. He is a key one . Why not more credits?

i dont know if im crazy imagining things -im black so i get offended easily- bUt, i noticed that even in the drama, tony doesn't receive much attention like the others. ok, there is some main characters, they obviously will have more scenes etc, but tony is a character in the same level as hyeonyi and that other guy that i forgot the name, they had a whole explanation of their history but toni didn't. so what im trying to say is: even though they put a black actor in the drama -which is cool since traditional dramas don't do… Read more »

He’s actually one of the “supporting” cast members which mean you get a glimpse at his life story to explain his presence in the drama but the focus is usually on and around the main actors and lives.

Be patient, times are changing. Hoping more roles will come his way. Keeping in mind that prejudices and racism are worldwide. Was so happy to see his face.

Omg! I said the exactly the samething. He played his roles nicely but whatever the reason is not giving him more credit like the other actors i dont like it. And so far im enjoying the drama?
