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.

Park Shin Hye

Kim Soo Hyun

Kim Soo Hyun sings OSTs for almost all his dramas, but he also did a bit of theater!


Park Seo Joon

The Wooga Squad is full of worldclass talent, no doubt. We’ve all fallen for Park Seo Joon purely for his charm and acting skills, but in case you need another reason, he also can carry a tune!
