Byun Yo Han is classy & cute in black and white spreads for Marie Claire Korea

It’s great to see how Misaeng catapulted all of its cast members to unexplored heights of popularity and made them household names and similarly popular in the international fandom. I love everyone in the show but Byun Yo Han is one of those who brings so much laughter in an otherwise melancholic and serious drama. I still remember how much I was annoyed when he first appeared on the drama because he looked like an opportunist, selfish and boastful character but of course Misaeng is a show which doesn’t have any black and white characters. People have so many layers and nothing is like the first impression we get. It was only a matter of time when Byun Yo Han as Seok Yul won my heart and became one of my favorite characters from the show. But I’m lying because all the characters are my favorite! One of the things I observed is that many actors in the drama are mainly film actors which also include Byun Yo Han who has previously worked in films like No Tears For Dead and Tinker Ticker. I’m cent percent sure that now there will be dramas lining up for him with his growing popularity. He is an actor who not only showed hos great comedy skills but also a vulnerable side that made you feel for him. Not to mention the great chemistry he has with rest of the newbies in the show.

If you are sad that Misaeng has ended this week (I’ve yet to see the finale), and you are going to miss the people, Marie Claire Korea is bringing its January issue featuring Byun Yo Han in basically black and white spreads where he is exuding his cute side. The texture of the pictures makes them look classy and he looks really charming. Can’t wait to see more of his works!

    Byun Yo Han is such a cutie (that smile!) and a good actor to boot. He made a character who could have been a caricature into someone whom you just could not help but to root for. I believe BYH has mainly been doing indie films, so no wonder he was not known by many, me included. Misaeng really cast a light on many competent yet farely unknown actors, some of whom have actually been around for a while now (Assist. Mgr Kang anyone? XD Oh Min Suk was pretty memorable in Chosun Police 3 too).

    Chief Oh is by and far my fave but I love just about everyone in this drama, even the ‘bad’ guys.

      I LOVE chief Oh…Lee Sung Min is impeccable in making the character so real and amazing! I love this thing about Misaeng that no one is black or white…everyone has good as well as bad points in their nature and nobody is evil (except that misogynistic director).
      Byun Yo Han is so cute and fantastic…I can’t believe he annoyed me in his first episode for Misaeng…now — I love him SO MUCH!

    Oh now I understand why their acting was so good in Misaeng. In Korea in general, most actors start in dramas, and movies actually validate you as a credible actor, popular/indie movie on not. So if they’ve played in movies it makes sense that so many unknown actors (except for Ha Neul) played so well. I’m sure that professionals know them well, even if we – the public – don’t/didn’t. What a handsome man! I didn’t like his character at first but of course everybody has a story. I’m waiting for your review, I could tell the story itself was good!

      I agree….international viewers mainly know about dramas and hence, we don’t know a lot many talented actors…but still, I think Misaeng made all its cast members a household name as it received so much love domestically as well…I’m so happy for this talented cast 🙂

    I love these pictures, he’s so adorable in that third one where he’s crinkling his nose! I still haven’t watched the last episode, I really must get to that before I wait so long I forget about it.

      Haha….even I haven’t seen the last ep because I went for a trip…now it’s the first thing I want to do….He is looking effortlessly adorable… ♥
