2. T-ARA’s Jiyeon
Still from the second generation of K-pop idols, there is T-ARA’s Jiyeon who is no less eye-catching in the Imitation drama. She plays La Li Ma, the most popular female soloist who is full of charisma.
He has feelings for Kwon Ryuk, but the presence of Ma Ha (Jeong Ji So) in their midst makes Li Ma very irritated. The proven acting experience when starring in the drama Dream High 2 coupled with the soul of the antagonist character makes La Li Ma’s aura very attached to Jiyeon.
3. Yunho ATEEZ
ATEEZ’s Yunho made his acting debut this year through the drama Imitation. He plays the character of Yoo Jin, the main vocalist of Sparkling. Even though he immediately made his acting debut as the main character, his friendly and protective character also caught the attention of the audience.
