Are you, like us, in denial that another great K-drama has come to an end? We won’t spoil the ending for you, but you’d agree, after watching the Doctor Crush finale, that Kim Rae Won’s version of Hong Ji Hong was irreplaceable, just as Park Shin Hye’s Yoo Hye Jung was.

Kim Rae Won has had many faces since his debut, which evolved from cute and fresh to sexy and mature throughout his expansive, decade-long career. As we still ruminate over the Doctor Crush finale, let’s go back in time and see how this cutie pie has evolved into a sexy heartthrob! Scroll down to reveal!

This photo's from when he was 19 and going through his  first love!


One of Kim Rae Won’s early works was the classic 1998 sitcom Soonpoong Clinic with Song Hye Gyo. There’s an episode where her dad gets angry at them kissing in front of the house. The part where Kim Rae Won begs his permission to date his daughter is priceless! (Read more about Kim Rae Won and Doctor Crush casts here)



Kim Rae Won in 2001 landed a lead role in  Life Is Beautiful, which also starred Ha Ji Won.
