9 K-Drama Stars Who Can Actually Sing
We know of K-pop idols venturing into the other side of the K-entertainment industry by trying their hand at acting. We’ve got the likes of IU, who’s still a successful solo artist, and Bae Suzy, who’s part of JYP’s girl group Miss A. But idols aren’t the only ones showcasing their hidden talents. Plenty of Korean actors and actresses also have their own secret skill to show off—many of them can actually sing! Now we’ve got another reason to stan harder.
Kim Go Eun
She may have won several awards as an actress, The Goblin and The King star’s talent extends beyond acting. Back in 2016, she featured in the OST for her first K-drama, Cheese in the Trap, called “Attraction.” She’s also showcased her singing chops on various talk shows and even on her Instagram account.
Lee Sung Kyung
Best known for her playing the titular role in Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-joo, Lee Sung Kyung is quite the all-arounder. Aside from being an actress, the 29-year-old is also a model and a singer. She even appeared on the popular Korean music show King of Masked Singer and wowed the panel as well as the audience.

Kim Soo Hyun

Outdoors Danielle Flestado @artdkf | May 1, 2020 "I miss the outside world. The last time I went outside of our house was on my birthday. We just bought coffee across our village and went back home immediately. This painting made me feel that I'm in a field, just appreciating the beauty of God's creation. Can you imagine the green grass and pink flowers?"
When everything around you suddenly turns dark, the first thing we'd prolly do, as humans, is to find and grab anything that is closest and nearest to us. We'll hold onto them for as long as we can, trying to collect ourselves and gather courage to adjust our eyesights to the pitch black environment that's consuming us minute by minute. And then you'd hear nothing. Your sense of hearing would somehow go off after not seeing anything for quite awhile. You'll let loose. Cry. Panic. You'll be exhausted for fighting your way out. Then just when you're about to stop and give up, you're no longer afraid. There's only this deafening silence and pithole of darkness that's gonna eat you up alive. And surprisingly, you'll make a home out of it.
You'll make a home out of the darkness that when a ray of light suddenly hits you, you'll try to avoid it. You'll try to cover your eyes. You'll try to cover your ears from the voices trying to help you get out of it. You'll try to hide because your mind and body will go against your will to come out and live. Because the darkness that used to scare you, now comforts you in a way you thought has helped you survived life. And you'll try to live. Day by day. In the darkness. Not knowing where to go. Not knowing where to start. Not knowing who is with you. You will try to live until the darkness that once surrounds you is now within you. And everyday, it's gonna be a cycle of subtle torture. But let me tell you a secret. The darkness won't make you whole.
You'll be broken. And in those hair-like cracks, the light will stubbornly fight its way through until it warms you up. Until you realize to check the switch and turn it on. Until you allow other people to help you find your way back in the light. Until you realize you're ready to live in light again. There's a light at the end of this long and dreading tunnel. The only question that matters: will you let them in?
I always thought of life, like a bead where each piece makes it worth sewing together with other piece of beads to make a stronger bond and to create a beautiful result. Today, how do we bond well with different people especially this difficult time? As this day challenges us to a new normal, may we continue to bead along positively with our life.
