Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. So we had to take into account many factors. Appearance alone will not get you ranked at the top. These actresses need to have charm, style, and sex appeal. Below is our list of the top Korean actresses working in film today. Most have not been able to branch out into Hollywood but with the global audience now getting into Korean films due to the success of Parasite, the fan base for these beautiful Korean actresses will only continue to grow. Some might be wondering why Song Hye Kyo is not on the list. She would be, however she has not done a film in a while. We will try to keep this list up to date with Korean actresses that are somewhat active.

Netflix really put Son Ye-Jin at the top again. She is now dating her co-star from Crash Landing on You Hyun Bin who is one of the top Korean drama actors of all time! Wow! What a power couple that is! She has been a veteran actress for years. When did she look the best, that is easy, April Snow. She has over 4.3 million followers on Instagram.

Park Shin Hye
The global audience might know her from the Korean Netflix movie Call. Call is one of the most underrated Korean horror films of 2020. She is also in #Alive which was another Netflix hit!
