KMazing – There are plenty of idol group in Korea right now, it’s already hard for one group to even catch the glimpse of spotlight in K-Pop but it’s harder for one member of the group to standout and steal the thunder for him/herself. But with the high level of intensity in battle to make it in K-Pop, there are several that finally made their name in other sector of the industry. Here are three not-so-long-ago-debut idol that gaining more fame via their participation in acting.
3. N – VIXX
N made his debut in 2012 with VIXX but as the group take their time in gaining momentum, N was actively involved in several drama such as Hotel King (2014), The Family Is Coming (2015), Cheer Up!

2. Yook Sung Jae – BTOB
You might not be familiar with BTOB but Yook Sung Jae ? If you don’t know him, you might be a bit late boarding the hype train in Korean Entertainment.
