K-dramas starring Chun Woo Hee are on a roll

Chun Woo Hee is one of the most buzzworthy K-drama actors who recently established her media presence with her charming acting chops. She was already leading the K-content calendar with her weekend fantasy romance, The Atypical Family, which premiered on May 4, 2024. Taking the cake, yet another of her latest series, Netflix's very own – The 8 Show, introduced a dark comedy chapter two weeks later on May 17.
