In our current generation, the most popular Korean actors are now Song Joong Ki, Park Bo Gum, Park Seo Joon, Park Hyungsik and a lot more. But before their careers started to bloom, there were actors in their place who are now in their 40s. Some of them are still bachelors, others are in relationships or married already.
Even in their 40s, they still managed to stay in shape and this still makes some Noona fans go crazy.
