We are preparing for the curtain fall of 2020. While it was a difficult year, owing to the COVID-19 pandemic, several K-dramas came to our rescue! With every K-drama, the actors of the show became the talk of the town courtesy the characters they portrayed and the performances they delivered. From Lee Min Ho, Kim Soo Hyun to Kim Seon Ho and Hyun Bin, there were a number of Oppas who held everyone's attention. However, when Pinkvilla reached out to fans on Twitter asking which actor stood out for them, they picked Park Seo Joon and Park Bo Gum. 

Park Seo Joon was picked among choices of Hyun Bin, Lee Min Ho and Kim Soo Hyun. Over 27,000 voters cast their vote and Park Seo Joon took the cake with 30.3 per cent votes. It's Okay To Not Be Okay star Kim Soo Hyun was extremely close, with 30.2 per cent votes in his favour. The King: Eternal Monarch star Lee Min Ho fetched 24.3 per cent votes whereas Crash Landing On You star Hyun Bin had 15.2 per cent voters on his side. 

Park Seo Joon was nominated for his mellow but powerful performance in the tvN revenge drama. The actor, who was seen playing the arrogant but a warm-hearted Vice President of a company in What's Wrong With Secretary Kim before Itaewon Class, broke away from the image to let his silence and rage do the talking in the 2020 K-drama. 

The second half of the poll featured Kim Seon Ho, Jo Jung Suk, Lee Dong Wook and Park Bo Gum. The poll witnessed over 27,000 voters participate. The Record of Youth star surpassed his fellow actors on the poll with 41.2 per cent votes in his favour. Start-Up breakout star Kim Seon Ho ranked second with 37.7 per cent votes in his favour. Tale of the Nine-Tailed star Lee Dong Wook garnered 16.5 per cent votes while Hospital Playlist's Jo Jung Suk settled with 4.7 per cent votes. 

Park Bo Gum deliver a refreshing take on a young character fighting to fulfil his dreams while tackling the problems of his personal life. The series played out when the actor began his compulsory military training. Park Bo Gum moved audiences with his relatable portrayal of the youth.

I think Park Bo Gun bagged the biggest votes not only because of his performance in "Record of Youth," but also because of the popularity of Reply 1988 of which majority of the voters only watched in this 2020.

I wish you would just stop all this voting online. I love Park Bo Gum and Park Seo Joon but we know 27,000 is a tiny tiny number knowing there are millions of fans out there, and there are many many other good actors.
