We villagers fought hard but last October over 3000 police officers swarmed in and turned our village into a battlefield. They blocked the mountain roads, the farm roads, and went about the village as if they owned it. Watching that made me sick to my heart. No matter how much we struggle, it seems like there"s no way to stop that tower from coming here. I have a lot of things to say. Will you listen to me?

Lets take a look at all the amazing Korean American Actors who are advised to take part in the korean movies
Because if you’re going to write a Korean American character into a K-Drama, at least do the role some justice.
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard some unfortunate English dialogue awkwardly shoved in and thoughtlessly carted off as someone’s native tongue. (Read: Stop faking it, K-Drama world. You’re not fooling anyone.)
Need ideas? So glad you asked. Some of the actors below you’ll know very well, while others may be brand spankin’ new to your face. All have concrete performing backgrounds, and can dish out a bit of Korean along with legit American English.
1. Steven Yeun, The Walking Dead
He may be known primarily as a dramatic actor battling zombies on AMC’s “The Walking Dead,” but Steven Yeun has a knack for comedy and a solid improv background. The Detroit native has already worked with 2NE1’s Sandara Park and K-Drama thesp Park Hyuk Kwon (“Producer”). Check it out in Whats Eating Steven Yeun below:
Bonus: if you write him into a scene at a Korean spa, he’s no stranger to getting scrubbed down on camera.
2. Justin Chon, Seoul Searching
Other Credits: Twilight films, 21Over, Sin City Saints
Justin Chon is all over the place. The actors been especially coming into his own in recent years with “Revenge Of The Green Dragons” and “21Over,” while emerging as a creative producer with his own YouTube channel, often collaborating with fellow online talent Kevin Wu (including features “Man Up” and “Hang Loose”).
The Orange County-based actor now stars in this year’s “Seoul Searching,” which portrays teens spending the summer in Seoul in the ‘80s.
I liked his interesting turn in short film “Jin” (2011) (on iTunes), but I also count his heart-to-heart with #4 on our list as one of my favorite Youtube vids.
Bonus: He’s appeared in the web series Ktown Cowboys.
3. Ki Hong Lee, The Maze Runner
Other Credits: Everything Before Us, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, The Nine Lives Of Chloe King
On the big screen, Ki Hong Lees part of the cast of the massive “Maze Runner” films (based on the novels by James Dashner), with the series next installment due out later this year. Hes guest starred on Netflix gem “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” as Kimmy’s love interest, Dong Nguyen. The actor once graced the stage at East West Players (the oldest Asian American theater in the US), and has built recognition while working with Wong Fu Productions.
He could play an American character visiting his cousins in Korea. I mean, he probably has them in real life anyway. (Check out the clip at about 00:40 below.)
What’s not to like about David So? Just seeing him onscreen makes people happy. I’ve yet to see him in a dramatic role, but he’s got the comedic side downjust take a look at his channelvlogs, sketches, and all. Hes oozing with so much talent, he could even bust out some RB if need be (he has a music channel, too). Check out his deliciously fun parody of a certain North Korean leader below, complete with Korean dialogue:
And David’s co-star of the above video, as his significant other? In case you’re wondering where else you’ve seen her, Arden Cho has played Kira Yukimura on “Teen Wolf” and has collaborated with plenty of YouTube talents, including Ryan Higa and the Wong Fu troupe. Her credits also include a round of modeling and hosting duties.
6. Sung Kang, the Fast and Furious films
Other Credits: Bullet To The Head, Gang Related, Better Luck Tomorrow
Sung Kang has a look that reminds me of one of those timeless matinee idols. The actors probably one that audiences have known longer, from the Fast and Furious franchise or maybe Better Luck Tomorrow. He’s originally a Georgia peach and has mastered the cool and brooding, but has taken on more romantic characters in indie features like “Sunset Stories” and “4 Wedding Planners.” Id argue that others owe him props for helping open doors for other Asian American actors in Hollywood.
He’s even done a bit of K-Drama parody on MadTV way back when.
Fun fact: Sung Kang was once featured in a g.o.d. music video, “Lie.” Small world, right?
7. Nancy Lee, Wedding Palace
No stranger to the stand-up comedy circuit, Nancy Lee has versatility when it comes to creating characters. (Just check out her self-produced reel.)
I was pleasantly surprised to see her in the indie “Wedding Palace”; the comedienne does have a gift for playing a tremendously great ahjummabecause what point is there in portraying an ahjumma character, unless its the most spectacular ahjumma that ever lived? (Shes the one applying lipstick in the video below.)
8. Julia Cho, The Lizzie Bennet Diaries
Julia Cho has guest starred on “Scandal,” “Silicon Valley” and “Real Husbands Of Hollywood,” but may be mostly known for her turn as Charlotte Lu on “The Lizzie Bennet Diaries.” I’m a fan of her guest star role (albeit much too brief) on “The Office” a while back (starting at 5:03). Cho played a daughter giving her mother a heads up (in Korean! With Amy Hill!) on a gay couple coming in for a couples discount. The thesp is very active on the theater scene, starring in “99 Histories” and flexing producing muscle with theater collective Artists At Play.
Which one of these actors would you most want to see swap dialogue with Kim Woo Bin or Gong Hyo Jin in a K-Drama? As Jung Kyung Ho’s visiting cousin? Kang So Ra’s lovelorn crush? Kim Young Kwangs college roommate? The possibilities are endless.
Move over, Lee Min Ho and Co.: theres a new set of fresh-faced flower boys breakin hearts. It takes a fierce kind of presence to take over the legacy of a member of F4. (Dont know what F4 is? See Boys Over Flowers.) They steal scenes from acting heavyweights, stir hallways with gossip, and have the kind of looks that make jaws drop. Watch out for these latest gents on K-drama screens: theyre tall, theyre handsome, and theyre just getting started.
Gravelly voice? Check. Darkly brooding enough to own the moment? Check. Actor Ji Soo turned up in a big way in this years explosive Angry Mom, and we noticed. Lets see some leading roles soon, yeah?
2. Kim Kwon, Heard It Through The Grapevine
Kim Kwon had me doing a serious double-take in Heard It Through The Grapevine. As a freshly minted young lawyer, Kim Kwon smoothly carried the role of academic wunderkind with a dash of dapper elitism. And I thought Lee Joon had all the flower boy moments covered in the dramanope, weve got more reason to swoon.
3. Lee Tae Hwan, Pride and Prejudice
Lee Tae Hwan, a member of acting group 5urprise, first caught my eye on King Of High School as Tae Suk, one of Seo In Guk’s hockey-playing besties. What followed was a sizable role in Pride and Prejudice alongside Choi Jin Hyuk as a series regular.
4. Kim Hyun Joon, Plus Nine Boys
Kim Hyun Joon more recently appeared in Hogus Love, but Im partial to his role as Park Jae Bum in Plus Nine Boys. Awkwardly stiff and not so smooth with the ladies, Kim Hyun Joons character had the hots for Kyung Soo Jin and found a romantic rival in Kim Young Kwang.
Who wouldnt mind having any of these four dons accompany them while doinganything?
Go Kyung Pyo, Tomorrows Cantabile
He was lovably nutty in Tomorrows Cantabile, impossibly cute in The Flower Boy Next Door, and is next appearing in the latest installment of the Answer Me series, Answer Me 1988.
Nam Joo Hyuk, School 2015
Starring in the current drama School 2015, Nam Joo Hyuks got an innocent mug and a knack for sweetly goofy and easygoing characters. (See also his adorable, satoori-speaking role in Surplus Princess.)
With all this gorgeousness onscreen, I just hope you can handle it.

This drama is about high school students helping their beloved father continue their family business.
Dance scenes in K-dramas can be a flirtatious exchange or a chance to show off. Other times they can be a gentlemanly act, a bold statement, or pure fun just watching people tumble and fumble in the process. Here are 5 of my favorite dance scenes!
1. Secret Garden Episode 14: Joo Won and Gil Ra Im
Our OTP finally meet after a litany of obstacles and naysayers in Secret Garden. Company honcho Joo Won (Hyun Bin) dances with stuntwoman Gil Ra Im (Ha Ji Won) in front of a horde of gawking clients.
It was the kind of dance that was a statement to the world: We love each other, and aint a damn thing you can do about it. If this doesnt make you all warm and fuzzy, I dont know what will.
The reunion is sweetened by a kiss. And another one. The I dont care if my companys stock goes down because of this kind of kiss, which unexpectedly turns into a make-out session (which I count as an additional victory for boundary-pushing displays of affection onscreen in Korea).
2. Boys Over Flowers Episode 3: Ji Hoo and Geum Jan Di
Cause theres sweet satisfaction in wiping the smirks off the faces of mean girls by taking to the floor with a pretty member of F4. Spirited heroine Geum Jan Di (Ku Hye Sun) glides on the dance floor with Ji Hoo (Kim Hyun Joong), the ever-so-knightly friend. Nice way to not only put on a brave face after getting played, but steal the show while youre at it.
Jan Di was so giddy it looked like she was dancing with a hanger in her mouth.
Take note, Gentlemen: never leave a beautiful girl alone on the dance floor.
3. Dream High Episode 6: Jin Gook and Hye Mi
Couldn’t get enough of this dance scene with Hye Mi (Suzy) unapologetically kicking Jin Gook (Taecyeon) during dance rehearsals in Dream High. Sandwiched by a jealous Sam Dong (Kim Soo Hyun) picking the two apart and Teacher Yang (Park Jin Young) cozying up to a reluctant Jin Gook (who breaks character), the scene made for a tasty little dancing treat. (Sidenote: move over, Suzy and JYPIll dance with Taecyeon).
4. Mr. Baek Episode 7: Choi Dae Han In His Living Room
I cant deny the thrill of watching a trained professional who knows exactly what hes doing.
Lee Joons character in Mr. Baek is exactly that. Choi Dae Han, of the groomed-for-corporate-greatness variety, dances in the living room in defiance of his fatheras a kid, he wanted to pursue dance, but the old man was completely against it. Luckily, Lee Joon is schooled in modern dance, and those pirouettes were a living testament to that. Id let Black SwanI mean, Lee Joongive me tips on spotting any day.
5. Scent Of A Woman Episode 8: Lee Yeon Jae and and Kang Ji Wook
I saved the best for last: the red hot sparks between Lee Yeon Jae (Kim Sun A) and Kang Ji Wook (Lee Dong Wook) set this tango on fire! All the pent up emotions and undeclared feelings leading up to it culminated in one of the sexiest scenes in K-drama history. And it doesn’t even involve a kiss (gasp). Lee Dong Wook never looked so irresistible. (Careful while watching this one: your screen might overheat.)
I want more dance scenes! Are you listening, K-drama writers?
Which dance scenes were your favorite? Which ones do you think should be added to this list?
