Idol actors in movies (D.O, Lee Seung Gi, Im Siwan)


Dong A - Naver: Idol actors, movie leads are getting younger and younger 

1. [+4,150, -202] Lee Seung Gi debuted as a singer but he's not an idol. Should've put Lee Joon here

2. [+2,920, -306] I still want to see rookies

3. [+585, -90] You really have to acknowledge Do Kyung Soo, Lee Joon and Im Siwan

4. [+524, -81] Out  of those who debuted as singers, I acknowledge Do Kyung Soo, Im Siwan and Lee Seung Gi

5. [+391, -43] These 3 are likeable. Do well in your movies~^^

6. [+409, -64] I first got into Do Kyung Soo because he's a good singer but his acting blew me away. He's really good. I was also one of those who opposed of idols getting into acting but the recent ones I've seen are really changing my perspective

7. [+299, -38] I have a feeling that 'Pure' will be a sad movie. Do Kyung Soo, Lee Seung Gi, Im Siwan, do well!!!

8. [+219, -19] I have nothing against idols who want to go into acting as long as they're good.

9. [+153, -22] D.O's breaking by SM stereotypes ㅋㅋ

10. [+86, -20] Im Siwan fits acting better. He should just promote as an actor just like Lee Joon

11. [+62, -10] My mom says that the best idol actors are Im Siwan, Do Kyung Soo, Yook Sungjae and Lee Joon

Ikr?! Siwan, Kyungsoo, Lee Joon and Sungjae did pretty well! They still have a long way to go with that age. Don't lose yourself and keep doing the best!

GOT7's Junior is the new rookie idol actor that I know will hit big one day after the idols mentioned above.

Lee Seung Gi isn't that good at acting but his voice is really good & he's adorable in variety shows.

Ivery said...

Lee seung gi ? I always knew him as an actor

qwerky101 said...

i know that do will become lead character in movie Pure Love with Kim Sohyun.
Lee Seunggi will become another lead role for his second movie, Goonghap with Shim Eunkyung.


but what about siwan ? is he has any upcoming movie ? i never heard this, does anybody knows ? and when they mention lee joon, is lee joon to will be casted as lead role in new movie ?


ps: lee seunggi is not an idol tho. he is a singer. idol-actor is like yoochun.

Bang said...

Does he have any new projects after My Love Eun Dong? He's good in it and if he improves his crying scenes, he will be totally fine. His crying scene in MLED when Eun Dong left the town is pretty bad :(

Protagonist said...

He's originally a singer and his singing >>>>>>>>>> his acting lol

yoong said...

guys, this article talk about movie leads that are getting younger. not merely about idol-actor that people used to talk about. so you dont need to mention other idol-actors or their acknowledgement here.. this is about movie lead roles. usually in industry film, the lead roles are given to someone older like song kang ho, lee jung jae, ha jung woo etc. ( i bet many of idol fans there dont know these movie stars) because movie is more detailed and need high professionalism in acting esp for the lead roles in blockbuster movie.


for do, lee seung gi and siwan,because they have been casted as a lead role in their upcoming movie, thats why article mention them. basically this article point out that lead roles for movie now is getting younger. i dont know why they mention lee joon there, maybe he also has lead role smthg for new movie.

blueming said...

Don't forget hyunsik, zea has so many talented member like siwan, kwanghee, dongjun, kevin
But why they aren't popularT.T
But for individually they has so many fans.......

missparker said...

what drama did u watch him anyway ? after one drama he did, he is getting improved. and now I can say he is really great in acting. in fact he is very excellent now compared to his first lead role in hit drama, Brilliant Legacy when he's just 22 yrs old. you should watch him in all dramas and movie esp the latest ones and u can see now how good he act. and he is acknoweledged too by directors and other vetecran actors for his acting. when I see him acting, i thought, he is really born to be a big-hit actor. im so proud now he is a Hallyu actor tho.

CHIC said...

EXACTLY!

FaultInOurStar said...

I've watched him in Brilliant Legacy, My Girlfriend Is A Nine Tail Fox, The Kings 2 Heart, and You're All Surrounded. He has not impress me with his acting but I do like him in varieties and love his songs.

pegasus said...

he debuted as a singer and still an active singer. he just released his full 6th album in early June this yr but he usually didnt promote his song that much because he is too busy with acting. you can check his latest song, And Goodbye. other his popular songs that i like is, return, will you marry me, just like first time.

paradise said...

Lee Seung Gi is not an idol tho. He is a singer turned actor

paradise said...

Disagree with 'Lee Seung Gi isn't that good at acting' but absolutely agree about his voice and his adorableness <3

dramaland said...

i dont agree with u the first one but i absolutely agree with the second remarks..he is good at acting and many people acknowledge him. he dont need to impress you bcs he has impressed many other people anyway. http://www.hancinema.net/ko-joo-won--knew-lee-seung-gi-was-going-to-be-a-big-hit-as-an-actor-84765.html

vivi said...

He has lot of good song and I like him better as singer since it makes me want to buy it where I am not that exited to his drama

FaultInOurStar said...

I'm obviously stating an opinion ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

Kim M. said...

Seunggi is not an idol. That's why they mention Lee Joon

Haeyoung said...

Yea I agree with this a lot. LSG is really likeable in varieties and has a good voice but his acting has never been groundbreaking. Always decent but never something that really moved me emotionally. I think he could be a really good actor eventually but he's not in that level yet and probably won't be for many years to come.

IMO, his best will always be K2H because of all the great actors he costarred with that helped elevate his performance. All his performances since has been meh to passable. I know his fangirls might attack me and/or reply with large acting analysis of his, but yeap... My opinion stands. LSG is decent but never amazing.

goldenmellow said...

There's no reason to attack you as long as you acknowledge what you said is true for most 20 something actors nowadays. It's when people downplay LSG while acting like some other actors in his age group as miles ahead of him (unless you are Joo Won or Yoo Ah In, you aren't) is what I have issue with. The brilliant Korean actors are in their 30's and beyond.

Haeyoung said...

Firstly, who are you to assume I'm not a Joo Wo or Yoo Ah In fan? That's an amusing assumption because I love them both and think they're fabulous and talented actors. Secondly, if you're comparing LSG to the likes of LMH LJS et all, then sure they are the same level. But there are many many actors in the 20s age range who are far more superior to LSG in talents and performances. People like JCW, KSH, SJK etc. You can disagree with that all you want but those actors have either proven themselves in dramas or movies or both.

goldenmellow said...

Huh? When did I assume you weren't? I'm saying yes, LSG is on that level but for some reason lately ifans constantly try to call him out on his acting for some reason, when even knetz don't. Kinda like they call out PSH or LMH as being shitty, when they aren't at all.


And I forgot about KSH, I'd put him on that level too. Despite the writing he always brings out the best in projects.

Haeyoung said...

For some reason, I understood your comment as saying I'm not their fan. My bad!

And I definitely wasn't trying to say LSG isn't in the same level as many of his compatriots because he is. Despite my comment, he's one of the actors I don't miss much of. I've seen him in a lot of his projects and find him good. I'm just saying he's not amazing like I hear some people say. Conversely, he's also a whole lot better in varieties than most of the amazing actors in his age range so...

lokifairy said...

What? His crying scenes are the best for me lol

lokifairy said...

He has everything, now he just needs luck but if he works hard I'm sure it will work out sooner or later

goldenmellow said...

I'd also add SJK too lol. He's great, but he's a bit older so I put him in the 30 crowd. So you are right there are more, but I'm talking the normal trendy drama leads LSG does fine against them for the most part. And yeah, we actually here. LSG is decent enough and I think will get better with time. Especially since he doesn't seem to have much interest in singing. I'm hoping for a project with great writing to push him. I'm excited he's working with SEK because she's better than him and will hopefully bring out a side that HJW was able to .


I think he is fantastic at variety as well, and beats nearly everyone his age there, but I can see why he doesn't do it as much. Unless you are going to do it full time , people get bored of seeing you and it's something he can do when he's older.

goldenmellow said...

Younger leads are being cast, but the majority of the huge box offices usually go to older actors. There are exceptions of course though, like SJK and KSH who have had mega hits. Maybe a few more I can't name rn. Anyway, I hope they do well.

11. [+62, -10] My mom says that the best idol actors are Im Siwan, Do Kyung Soo, Yook Sungjae and Lee Joon



Tell your mom I love her, OK? thankyou for mentioning my baby sungjae!!!

nicky said...

Yes,lee joon casted as lead role in upcoming movie called "key of life"
And also siwan but i don't remember the tittle.

Nicky said...

Lee joon is an actor turned idol. now he's back!!!

Coco said...

Yeah i think the same, I really love him, but for acting, I just find him not awakward but not impressive

Melody said...

But honestly, the fact that Ha Ji Won and Cha Seung Won didn't swallow him up making him like a squid shows he's managing himself. He got some really great reviews for his last movie, and tho I didn't like the story (it was too basic) he and Chae Won were amazing and nailed their characters.

Melody said...

he was much better in his movie Love Forecast

Melody said...

this is his first stage after debut, this song earned him his first nation's title and shoot him to stardom. Tho he started as a singer, he's also MCing and acting. I like him as a singer more because I adore his songs but he's a really good actor and super natural with varieties. (I recommand Noona Over Flowers, since it's not long, as a variety show of his)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WmG7KWFyP5c

You can check his last album it's so good for a calm rest or to listen to during a trip (his voice changed a lot)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_QJm3wJq6fU

one last thing, this live (from his last YHY's sketchbook guesting) is perfect

sinichi conandoyle said...

Whahahah is this a joke?? Did u watch king 2 hearts... I bet u only watch his 1st movie in 2009.lol

goldenmellow said...

I wish the writing were better. It was a waste of MCW and his time. I'm hoping this new movie is great. :D

eplizo said...

Yea, Seung Gi isn't an idol, just a singer. He's more along the lines of K.Will than EXO lol. Anyway, Im Siwan>>>>>>>>> He's too good,

FaultInOurStar said...

Agree. He's not the best actor but it doesn't stop me from watching his drama. Seems like there can't be a conversation without LSG fans attacking... =P

AirenHearties said...

Lee Seung Gi is love <3 and he's more known as an actor lately, glad he still remembers his roots "singer not idol" and gave us an amazing album to enjoy his healing music. So looking forward to his variety show as well <3

ladyoo said...
