Monolid K-Drama Actors Who Give Us Butterflies
Monolids are a physical feature where there is no crease on the eyelids. It’s a distinct and very specific feature that some Koreans have and some do not have. This feature is dedicated to some of our favorite actors who have monolids.
Disclaimer: No idol actors are included on this list.
Lee Joon Gi’s distinct eyes have worked in his favor throughout his acting career. There were several times where he has had to wear a mask and his sharp eyes have helped him exude the charisma and strength of the particular characters.
Song Joong Ki’s monolids are the perfect attribute on his youthful face. With his ability to play such contrasting characters in his roles, he’s able to use them to his advantage. This was especially the case when he played a werewolf boy and had only one line in the whole movie. Most of his acting was done with his actions and gaze!
Gong Yoo has an ability to have both piercing and incredibly soft gazes with his eyes. This is all because of his monolids; not many actors can have an intense glare as well as have sad, puppy dog-like eyes!
Park Seo Joon’s eyes have become a household name in the K-drama world. He’s able to show such a wide array of emotions with them and they help get his emotions across with a lot of impact as we most recently saw in his role in “Itaewon Class.”
Ah, Lee Jong Suk’s eyes have captured the hearts of many people all around the world. His charismatic glances and subtle smiles at the camera are bound to make anyone fall in love!
One look at Seo Kang Joon’s puppy-dog eyes, and our hearts are a puddle of mush. Seo Kang Joon has the ability to make people sympathize with his sad gazes when he’s acting in a dramatic scene. So many butterflies!
The legendary actor So Ji Sub has monolid eyes that can pierce daggers through your heart. His sharp eyes have only added to his intense and flawless acting skills!
Yoo Ah In has soft features that make him appear to have both a baby face and a mature face. His monolids definitely add to his boyish features, but they also help him when he plays villain and bad boy roles. How can we forget him in the movie “Veteran” when he had those intense gazes in every scene?
We have seen Yeo Jin Goo’s staple monolids since he was a child in various K-dramas and movies. It was only a matter of time before he started landing lead roles. He’s able to suck people into his dramas with his charismatic eyes and deep voice!
Park Bo Gum’s sweet and adorable good looks are emphasized with his monolids. They give him a soft gaze so that when he has sad eyes, he really makes you want to cry. This is the kind of power Park Bo Gum holds!
Yoo Yeon Seok’s eyes make his entire look very sexy. He’s known to be an actor who is great at kiss scenes, and his eyes seem to add to the romance and build-up of those scenes. What an advantage to have as an actor!
Ryu Jun Yeol’s unconventional good looks always seem to work in his favor. He can play sweet and kind as well as mean and dark. He’s an actor who can play it all, and his monolid eyes help him with that versatility.
Lee Sang Yoon has got the complete package. Not only is he incredibly gifted in acting, but he’s also smart, athletic, and pretty hilarious. The fact that he has monolids only makes him that much more attractive!
We sure do miss seeing Kim Woo Bin in K-dramaland. He has been modeling a lot these days and his photo spreads have been a gift to his fans. Just look at his ability to lure you in with just his eyes.
With Woo Do Hwan being in the military, his fans are definitely missing his monolid eyes and heartfelt acting. He’s been able to prove in recent roles that he can do it all when it comes to acting. How can we forget his dual personality and roles in “The King: Eternal Monarch”?
Cho Seung Woo is one of those actors who is so talented that a simple look can make you understand exactly what his characters feel. His monolid eyes are a staple and this legendary and talented actor has always been able to use it to his advantage.
Nam Joo Hyuk has been very busy recently starring in several K-dramas as well as movies. The vulnerability in his eyes makes him a hot commodity in the Korean entertainment industry, so it’s no wonder he’s getting so many offers!
One of the newer additions to the monolid K-actor fam, Hwang In Yeop has mentioned that his eyes are his best feature. He has also said that his eyes can make him seem like a cold person, which is great for the roles where he needs to be edgier.
