    I guess we’re forgetting Choi Minho here. This ex-Marine paratrooper and idol actor has gained a lots of appraisals for his acting in various drama series as well in movies. We should watch his Battle Of Jansari movie and also serieses like Somehow 18, The Most Beautiful Goodbye, Lovestruck in the City etc. These works speaks for his versatile acting capability.
    Whereas being the winner of “Face Of Asia” award (Actor Lee Min Ho also once won this same award) and declared as having golden body proportions by plastic surgeons and as well being the natural beauty since birth, I guess I don’t really need to say more.
    Even camera can’t capture his enormous charming and handsome face. Trust me he looks like a Disney prince in real life as I’ve seen him very close ☺️
