Last time, we wrote about actresses that look especially beautiful in hanboks (traditional Korean clothing). Well, we couldn’t leave out the hot male actors! Hanboks are not the easiest garments to pull off and sageuk hair can be even more difficult. Let’s take some time to appreciate our favorite actors who can pull it off effortlessly. Here’s our list of actors that are true hanbok hotties. Who is the hottest of them all? Share your favorites in the comments below!
Lee Min Ho is really handsome in anything, and especially so in a hanbok. The actor was a sizzling bodyguard in “The Great Doctor” (also known as “Faith”). Who would like to see him in more sageuk dramas?
Lee Joon Gi truly shines in historical dramas. Of course, he’s great in pretty much every genre, but sageuk dramas are his forte. The actor has been in “Iljimae,” “Arang and the Magistrate, “Gunman in Joseon,” “Scholar Who Walks the Night,”and is currently in “Scarlet Heart: Goryeo.” He has also been in the film “The King and the Clown.”
Another actor that comes to mind as a sageuk natural is Jang Hyuk. He looks great in a hanbok, and perhaps even better when he bares some skin. You can watch him in a variety of sageuk roles in “Slave Hunters,” “A Tree With Deep Roots,” “Shine or Go Crazy,” and “The Merchant: Gaekju 2015.”
Jung Il Woo pulls off a variety of different hanbok looks from rugged to chic. The actor has starred in “Return of Iljimae” also known as “Moon River,” “The Moon Embracing the Sun,” and “The Night Watchman.” Which of his looks do you prefer the most?
The model-turned-actor had perfect sageuk hair in “The Moon Embracing the Sun.” When he left it down, it looked rugged and manly. At the same time, he also had his hair up at times which gave him a different but equally attractive effect.
Im Siwan is another stud from the hit drama “The Moon Embracing the Sun.” However, he also wore a hanbok for a scene in the sitcom “Standby.”
The rising actor proved he can look just as good in a hanbok in the historical drama “Splendid Politics.” Here’s to hoping for more sageuks from him!
The actor also starred in “Gu Family Book” as well as the movie “The Royal Tailor.” Can’t wait to see him in more leading roles!
Having started his acting career as a child, Yoo Seung Ho has been in multiple historical dramas. “The Great Queen Seon Deok,” “Warrior Baek Dong Soo,” and “Arang and the Magistrate” are among his works.
Ji Chang Wook was the other handsome half of “Warrior Baek Dong Soo.” He has also tried different kinds of traditional clothing in dramas like “Empress Ki.”
Jaejoong was a hanbok hottie in “Dr. Jin,” where he wore a variety of hanbok styles that all suited him.
