These 5 Korean Celebs at First Didn’t Plan to Become Actors

We’re sure that almost all of us didn’t end up in a career path that we initially planned on entering. The same goes to some Korean stars who never thought that they would end up in their present line of work.

Numerous Korean actors entered the acting industry just by luck or sometimes just by chance. And they never intended on becoming actors themselves. It’s quite impossible to imagine that the stars that we are used to watch on our screens would not be the same actors since they would have pursued different career paths.

Surely, most Korean stars initially had different dreams or goals that they wanted to pursue which makes sense because some of us never dreamed of becoming an actor since we were young. Nevertheless, we are still grateful that these stars chose acting over other careers.

Scroll down to see the list of some Korean actors who at first didn’t intend to become actors or actresses.
