Seo In-guk

D.O.B.: 23 Oct 1987 Age: 30

Height: 180cm / 5’11

Singer / Actor

Won Superstar K (singing contest) in 2009.

Acting breakthrough in drama Reply 1997 in 2012.

He’s an absolutely brilliant actor. I first saw him in No Breathing but I was in Lee Jong-suk fangirl mode at the time so I didn’t like him because he ‘wasn’t even good looking’. I then saw him in Master’s Sun and even though I hated him at the time, he is such a good actor that I disliked him less. The next thing I saw him in was Reply 1997 which is what I definitely recommend watching, for him, for everyone else, for him.

Near the end of High School: King of Savvy he plays the older brother wearing glasses, that was when I really understood what people meant when they say their ovaries exploded. Hot people do look hotter in glasses but nothing compares to Seo In-guk in glasses.

No Breathing (2013)

I feel really sorry for him. On Mamma Mia he was telling the story of how poor they were and his mother went around collecting rubbish for money. Also that he kept getting rejected by companies because he wasn’t skinny enough. He then developed bulimia and damaged his vocal chords. Thankfully only temporarily. But he’s obviously doing very well now and his body is so hot, especially his back.
