KCON promised to bring on the actors and they have not disappointed! Kim Soo Hyun, Daniel Henney, and Ki Hong Lee have been added to the KCON LA line-up alongside Son Ho Jun as featured guests! We say "bring on the drama!"
Kim Soo Hyun is clearly one of the top stars in Korea right now, if not the world. He began his drama career with his role in Kimchi Cheese Smile in 2007 and started his climb to stardom with his breakout role in 2011's Dream High. Since then he has made a new for himself in film and television, including winning the "Best Actor" award at the 2012 Baeksang Awards for his role in 2012's Moon That Embraces The Sun. His popularity was further solidified with his roles in My Love From Another Star in 2013, alongside Jeon Ji Hyun, and this year's drama series Producer, another hit in his unbroken string of successes.
Daniel Henney started his Koren acting career with his role in My Lovely Sam Soon finding instant popularity although he knew little Korean at the time. Since then, he has managed a career in both Korea and Hollywood with roles in both film and television, including notable appearances in Spring Waltz, Three Rivers, and X-Men Origins: Wolverine. He was also the voice behind Tadashi Hamada in this year's animated hit Big Hero 6. His return to television was announced earlier this year when he was cast in Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders alongside Gary Sinise. The series is set to premiere in Fall 2015.
Son Ho Jun is best known to DramaFever audiences for his role as Haitae in Answer Me 1994, which was arguably the best drama series sequel in existence as it swept Korean television with the final episode recording an all-time high rating. Since then, he took a role in 2014's Trot Lovers and has appeared as a regular member and guest star in some of Korea's most popular variety shows including Three Meals A Day, Youth Over Flowers, and Running Man.
Actor Ki Hong Lee scored his breakout role as 'Minho' in 2014’s dystopian science fiction film The Maze Runner and was named of of People's ‘Ones to Watch' that year. Since 2010, Lee has guest starred in TV shows such as The Secret Life of the American Teenager and Modern Family before landing his first main role in The Nine Lives of Chloe King. He currently stars as romantic male lead 'Dong Nguyen' in the Netflix comedy Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, created and written by Tina Fey. Lee returns to the big screen in the highly awaited sequel Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials in September 2015.
In addition to these great actors, KCON has teamed up with the Korea Creative Content Agency to bring a spotlight on things that go on behind-the-scenes.
