Actors Who Boggled Our Minds With Their Dual Roles
It’s hard enough playing one character in a drama/movie, let alone two.
However, there are some actors who portrayed two characters so perfectly that their characters seemed like two different people.
Here are a few actors who did full justice to their double roles:

As Lee Heon, he is merciless and cold while as Ha Seon, he displays a warm, bright smile all the time. He is being praised by viewers for portraying both bright and dark characters impeccably in one drama.
