Every K-Drama fan has an ultimate bias, and one actor who undeniably captures hearts is the rising star Hwang In-youp, who has skyrocketed to fame since his acting debut in 2018. Although he just debuted a few years ago, this “model turned actor” has quickly become a hot commodity in the Korean entertainment industry. Indeed, he rose in popularity globally and could win so many hearts easily because of his roles in various dramas, as well as his charismatic bad boy look and beautiful, smoky eyes.

Fall in love with this South Korean heartthrob in these exceptional drama series!

Quick trivia: Did you know that In-youp studied here in the Philippines? He lived in Davao City, studied high school at Philippine Nikkei Jin Kai International School, and later graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree major in fashion design at Philippine Women's College of Davao. He recently visited the country last June for a fan meet event for a cosmetics brand. And if you ever missed the chance to meet him (or want to meet him again), this Korean heartthrob will return to Manila on September 24!

Now is the perfect time to get into the In-youp K-dramarathon! Watch these titles on Viu Premium with PLDT Home!

He stars along with Moon Ga-young (Lim Ju-kyung) and Cha Eun-woo (Lee Soo-ho), and their characters are in a love triangle setup.
