It's no secret that K-Pop idols are trained in almost all aspects - singing, dancing, acting, sometimes rapping too. Their debut is only possible after years and years of hard work and training. That's why, when most idols foray into acting, it's not much of a surprise. 

 

What's a bit different though nowadays, is the fact that K-Pop idols are now given a preference over rookie actors. Why? Because they bring with them a whole array of fans and attention. In addition, because of how hard and extreme their training is, they mostly do turn out to be good actors. And it's better for fans too as they get to see a whole different side of their favourite idol. So it's mostly like a win-win-win situation for the production house, the actor and the fans! However, keeping these things aside, let's now move onto the famous KPop idols who have turned into celebrities and have taken over our screens!
