Yoo Seung Ho's adorable new drama, I'm Not a Robot, has zoomed to the top of the current Top 10 most watched shows on DramaFever. Although he is only 25 (in Korean age), the young leading man is already a recognized actor who excels in portraying memorable characters. Let's take a look at some of his roles. Which one is your favorite?

1. Ruler: Master of the Mask

Yoo Seung Ho is adept at traversing between modern and historical roles. Right before I'm Not a Robot, he shined as a crown prince who lived behind a mask all his life until he switched identity with a substitute and escaped from the confining palace. Once in the real world, he had to grow up from a naive, sheltered prince to become a fighter for the people and regain his kingdom.

3. Warrior Baek Dong Soo

He co-starred as a rogue assassin opposite Ji Chang Wook, who played the titular role, in this swashbuckling, coming-of-age tale of the rise of a famous Joseon swordsman in Korean history. Yoo Seung Ho's poignant performance was incredibly memorable and beyond expectation.

5. Arang and the Magistrate - (cameo as Jade Emperor, King of Heaven)

Usually the Jade Emperor is portrayed as a much older figure, but Yoo Seung Ho brought a refreshing vibrancy to the character. And he looked cute too! It's one of those rare times when a cameo role almost out-shined the regular characters. (It's actually a personal favorite for me, because it was the first time I saw Yoo Seung Ho.)

9. I'm Not a Robot

Dating in the digital age is tough enough, especially for a brainiac with an "allergy" to humans. Maybe dating a robot could be the perfect solution. 

For his newest drama, Yoo Seung Ho has admitted that it's a challenge to play a rom-com role after playing the darker roles. He thanks co-star Chae Soo Bin for helping him.

It was a surprise when Yoo Seung Ho quietly enlisted in the military in 2013. He was only 20 and was rising in popularity after completing I Miss You. It turned out to be a smart move. Now that he has completed his military duty, he can fully concentrate on expanding his career without having to worry about a pending interruption in the future. He has also selected great roles that resulted commercial success.

There is no doubt that we will continue to see fantastic work from the impressive young actor.
