In a recent article describing top stars as those who play a key character role which adds appeal and injects fun into a drama, Sang Hyun is among those in the list.
Top stars in the following dramas:
Jo In Sung …….. Shoot For The Star (SBS 2002)
Jo In Sung as Sung Tae, a wannable actor who suffers from dyslexia.
With the help and support of his manager, he succeeds in becoming an actor.
Rain …… Full House (KBS 2004)
Rain as Young Jae, a stubborn and egotistical actor who falls in love with his house keeper Ji Eun (Song Hye Kyo). After the latter had been tricked by her friends who sold her house to Young Jae, she had to agree to work as his house keeper in order to buy it back.
Kim Ha Neul ……. On Air (SBS 2008)
Kim Ha Neul as top star Oh Seung Ah in the drama which portrays what goes on behind the work of a TV drama production team and the performers.
Kim Ah Jung ……… The Accidental Couple (KBS 2009)
Kim Ah Jung as top actress Han Ji Soo who got a humble and goodhearted man Gu Dong Baek (Hwang Jung Min) to act as her fake boyfriend in order to cover up her relationship with a politician’s son and to avoid the unwanted publicity from the paparazzi.
I have watched this drama a number of years ago and have enjoyed the touching story of a humble man who managed to win over the lady with his simplicity and good heart. Lovely OST and great acting by Hwang Jun Min.
Jang Guen Suk, Park Shin Hye, Lee Hong Ki & Jung Yong Hwa …… You’re Beautiful (SBS 2009)
A drama about a pop idol group and one of their member’s twin sister Go Mi Nyeo (Park Shin Hye) who was persuaded to take over her twin brother’s place temporarily in the group. The twist was that she had to dress up as a guy and the members did not know that she’s actually a girl until much later.
A fun drama which I had quite enjoyed watching despite not being a fan of Jang Guen Suk.
Yoon Sang Hyun …… Secret Garden (SBS 2010)
A romantic fantasy drama about the exchange of souls between an arrogant department store owner Joo Won (Hyun Bin) and a stunt woman Ra-Im (Ha Ji Won). Sang Hyun as Joo Won’s cousin and the loveable Hallyu Star Oska.
Cha Seung Won & Gong Hyo Jin …….. Best Love (MBC 2011)
A drama about the relationship amidst the entertainment world and love triangle between Gu Ae Jung (Gong Hyo Jin) a once popular idol from a girl group, popular actor Dokko Jin (Cha Seung Won) and Yoon Pil Joo (Yoon Kye Sang) a doctor of Oriental Medicine.
Choi Si Won & Oh Ji Eun …….. The King of Dramas (SBS 2012)
Another drama about the entertainment industry. Choi Si Won as an egoistic top actor Kang Hyun Min and Oh Ji Eun as the prickly lead actress Sung Min Ah, with both acting in the same drama.
IU ……. Producers (KBS 2015)
About some TV drama producers and the hectic schedules in the production network.
IU as a famous singer who had started out as a trainee from a young age.
I’m sure there are other unique characters from the many good dramas which viewers can point out.
For me, another top star occasion is Sang Hyun as Tae Bong in Queen of Housewives (MBC 2009).
