If actors born in 1993 are those that are making the headlines these days, for actresses, the year 1991 seem to shine the brightest.

Here are four actresses born in 1991 who are showing that they have the star power to be the future of Korean entertainment.

Kim Go Eun, born on July 2, 1991, is more known for her movies like “A Muse” and “Chinatown.” “A Muse” was her debut film that earned her the “Best Female Newcomer Award” at the 49th Grand Bell Awards and the 33rd Blue Dragon Awards in 2012. Currently, she is starring in the live-action version of the webtoon “Cheese in the Trap,” her first television drama. While there were some voices of concern regarding the actress’ ability to portray the beloved character of Hong Seol in the drama, she has since quieted those fears.

Park So Dam, born on September 8, 1991, has been prolific in the film industry despite having debuted only three years ago. She appeared in the 2015 blockbuster hits “Veteran” and “The Priests,” and the drama “Because It’s the First Time” (with SHINee‘s Minho) and the drama special “Princess Hwawan.” Described as “rising star” by many, she will be starring in the upcoming drama “Cinderella and the Four Knights.”

Kim Seul Gi, born on October 10, 1991, has appeared in numerous films and dramas, as well as being part of the “Saturday Night Love: Korea” cast in 2013. She was so convincing, many thought she was a comedian, rather than an actress. Since then, Kim Seul Gi has portrayed a range of characters that showed her ability to make audiences laugh as well as cry. Her most recent project, “Splash Splash Love,” (co-starring BEAST‘s Yoon Doojoon), received love from critics and audiences alike.

Ryu Hye Young, born on March 28, 1991, just recently came off the hit tvN drama “Reply 1988,” putting her name out there as one of Korea’s new stars to look out for. Even though her character yelled often and was rough around the edges, the actress was able to make the character relatable and vulnerable. Ryu Hye Young has mostly focused on films since her 2007 debut and has only two dramas under her belt – “Reply 1988” and “Spy.”
