Historical dramas are often created with intricate details and thorough planning, thanks to the minds behind the rolling cameras. In addition, the actors’ passion and natural ability to synchronize with a “sageuk” role are key factors to a successful historical series. In this list are the actresses who flawlessly graced the small screen with their 100% synchronization with their respective roles!
Even when she was still young, Kim Yoo Jung appeared in many “sageuk” or historical K-Dramas.
Kim Yoo Jung even earned the nicknames “Nation’s Little Sister” and “Sageuk Fairy” because of her amazing performances.
Her historical dramas pinned her name at the top of the industry after they dominated the Hallyu scene.
Kim Yoo Jung has tried the modern genres, but these didn’t achieve satisfactory results. With this, the actress recently returned to the small screen with another historical drama, “Lovers of the Red Sky.”
She didn’t play the role of a young high school student or an office employee with a love-hate relationship with her boss.
Instead, Kim Yoo Jung transformed into a historical painter with outstanding visuals.
Unlike Kim Yoo Jung, fellow child actress Kim So Hyun appeared in many modern dramas like “Who Are You: School 2015,” “Love Alarm,” and “Radio Romance,” to name a few.
In 2021, Kim So Hyun returned with the historical drama “River Where the Moon Rises,” which was based on the novel entitled “Princess Pyeong Gang.”
From her typical high school girl roles, she transformed into a noblewoman and a powerful general.
As expected, Kim So Hyun stuns everyone with her immersive acting performances. Some argue that she possesses modern beauty. However, many fans believe that she was fit for the role.
Known for being the lead dancer of the popular girl group Girls’ Generation, Yuri transforms from being an idol to a warrior princess.
Yuri took the industry by storm with the great success of her MBC blockbuster drama “Bossam: Steal the Fate.”
In the series, the singer-actress played the role of a princess with great power and discipline. With her timeless and sophisticated aura, she shined with her beauty.
Many fans swoon over the actress’s transformation, saying she brings a bright and most beautiful historical aura ever.
Starting from appearing with minor roles in dramas “Oh My Ghost,” “She Was Pretty,” and “The Legend of the Blue Sea,” Shin Hye Sun successfully rose to stardom with her 2020 historical rom-com drama “Mr. Queen.”
Her preppy and girly image disappeared and was replaced by the luxurious image as a queen, giving justice to the Hanbok collection prepared by the production unit.
Shin Hye Sun overwhelmed fans and viewers with her outstanding performance as a narcissistic chef trapped inside a woman’s body.
“Mr. Queen” is still one of the best 2021 drama releases until this writing.
