15 Korean actors with celebrity siblings
Apparently, talent runs in the family--at least in Korea. There are quite a few K-drama actors whose siblings have also entered the entertainment world. Here are 14 Korean actors and their celeb siblings:
1. Krystal and Jessica Jung
The f(x) member and Heirs actress is the younger sister of the Girls' Generation member.

These two are some of the most public Korean celeb siblings, with 2Ne1's Dara always checking in on her younger brother, who is part of the group MBLAQ and who also had a leading role in Nail Shop Paris.
8. Go Eun Ah and Mir
Go Eun Ah, who is best known for her role in Golden Apple and who had a small role in the drama Bad Guy, is very close with her younger brother Mir, who is a member of MBLAQ.

He comes to her for advice with girlfriends, and she goes to him when she's considering movie roles.
