Korean Actors With Honey Voices Made For ASMR
ASMR has been all the craze these days. For those of you who aren’t familiar with what it is, ASMR stands for Autonomous sensory meridian response, which is that feeling you get when the hairs on the back of your neck and/or spine stand up. Usually, this is caused because you hear something that stimulates it. There are a lot of famous social media influencers who pride themselves in being ASMR pros. And although the Korean actors on this list are not into ASMR, imagine if they decided to get into the profession! They’d probably be successful because their honey-like voices trigger some serious feels. Here’s a look at 17 of those actors.
1. Yeo Jin Goo
Let’s start this list off right. Yeo Jin Goo has always been complimented for his deep and masculine voice, even when he was quite young. You could literally listen to Yeo Jin Goo read a book all day long. In fact, here’s a clip of him reading several excerpts from the novel, “Miss Peregrin’s Home for Peculiar Children.”
You don’t even have to understand every word he says because his voice is music to our ears.
2. Kim Woo Bin
Not only is Kim Woo Bin tall and handsome, but he’s also got a charming voice that could seduce you into getting on a plane to Seoul in hopes of seeing him in person. In fact, here’s a narration was done by Kim Woo Bin, encouraging you to visit Seoul.

3. Hyun Bin
The maturity in Hyun Bin’s voice makes basically any line he says enough to swoon over. He’s not only got the perfect look and voice, but he’s also quite the good singer that will have you melting like butter on a muffin. Remember the beautiful OST he sang for “Secret Garden“?

In contrast to Song Joong Ki’s baby-face, his voice has a depth and soul to it that’s unshakeable. It’s so velvety and perfect, just like his face. Here’s a clip of him narrating in a CF for Incheon Airport. Warning though, it’s not for the faint of heart.
5. Lee Je Hoon
Lee Je Hoon has been known to have the perfect boy next door image with a voice that is so soothing. His voice is so honey-like that when he drops those romantic confession lines in his K-dramas, you end up watching it on repeat. Scenes like this one from “Where Stars Land“:
“Let’s just love.”

6. Jang Ki Yong
Jang Ki Yong’s voice should come with a warning label. It’s dangerous for him to be walking around talking with that kind of voice, especially when he’s using his satoori accent. Here’s a little glimpse into what it would be like to hear his voice over the phone. Oh, and let’s just pretend the girl he’s talking to is us.
Who knew a man’s voice could sound so gorgeous? Ji Chang Wook’s voice is not for the faint of heart. And it’s not only his talking voice that can send people in a frenzy, but it’s also his singing voice that can make hearts skip several beats. Let’s put this to the test by watching this clip:
How many beats did your heart skip?
8. Won Bin
It’s been a while since we’ve been blessed with the sounds of Won Bin’s voice in a K-drama or movie, which is why we have no choice but to watch his CFs on repeat. But it’s okay because with CFs like this one, you really can’t complain:
9. Lee Sun Gyun

11. Sung Hoon
Sung Hoon’s good looks are perfectly accompanied by the perfect voice. And with the huge appetite that he’s known to have, he’d be the perfect ASMR candidate. Hearing him eat wouldn’t even bother me one bit.
