Which K-Drama Stars Are Also K-Pop Fans?

When Song Seung Hoon appeared on the JTBC show "Witch Hunt," the star of the film "Obsessed" confessed to being a fanboy for singer IU. He confessed that he was a fan of IU's songs, particularly her recent song about a woman who sings to a man living in the same building as her.
"I am so into IU's song," he said. "Before I realized it I found myself responding to IU's lyrics."
He not only sang along to her song, he said. He responded to the lyrics.
And he's not the only actor that is devoted to a k-pop artist.
Actress Han Ga In, last seen in "The Moon Embracing The Sun" has publicly acknowledged the intensity of her fandom for BigBang's G-Dragon. At a press conference her husband actor Yun Jung Hoon was asked if he ever got jealous of his wife's devotion to the singer. He said he never did because was a fan too. He also attended BigBang and G-Dragon solo concerts.
"To be honest, I like G-Dragon more than she does," he said.
The married actors were spotted together at G-Dragon's One Of A Kind World Tour concert wearing matching outfits.
CL of 2NE1 has a huge base of famous fans having won praise for her looks, her style and her performances from actors Lee Hyun Woo, Julien Kang, Jo Jung Suk, Uhm Tae Woong and Ryu Seung Bum.
2NE1's Sandara Park also has a few fanboys. Her list includes fellow musicians but also actors such as Park Ki Woong, Song Joong Ki and Lee Ji Hoon.
Often when idols also act, they acquire their co-stars as fans. Park Shin Hye has been seen attending CNBLUE's concert to cheer on her "Heartstrings" co-star Jung Yong Hwa. So were their fellow "Heartstrings" co-stars actresses Im Semi, Woori and Moon Ga Young.
Park Yoochun's fellow "Sungkyunkwan Scandal" actors Song Joong Ki and Yoo Ah In attended JYJ's first worldwide concert.
Fans were not that surprised to learn that actor Lee Seung Gi was dating Girls Generation's Im Yoona. He already stated on television that he was a fan of the group and that Yoona was his ideal type. It wasn't the first time that an actor listed Yoona as his ideal type. She was given that distinction by a list of actors including Joo Jin Mo, Jung Woo Sung, Lee Jun Ki and Kang Ji Hwan. But so far as we know it's the first time she went out on a date with one of her actor admirers. And that relationship is still going strong.
