Lee Hyun Wook & Uhm Ki Joon

This isn’t the first rodeo for actor Uhm Ki Joon to play a negative role. The actor is versatile and every role he has played has been different from the previous ones. From popular lovable role in Dream high to evil incarnate in Penthouse Kdrama, Uhm Ki Joon has shown his dynamic and versatile acting that makes you love and hate him at the same time.

Hate the character, not the actor, please! Lee Hyun Wook has played the role of Han Ji Young in Mine. On one side we have Joo Dan Tae, and on the other hand, we have Han Ji Young.

Actor Uhm Ki Joon is famous for his role in Dream High, Phantom, Defendant, I’m not a robot, and other movies and drama. The list is huge! Actor Lee Hyun Wook is famous for his role in 3 Days, Mrs.Cop 2, Strangers from Hell, Search, and other movies and dramas.  

Both the actors have portrayed the role of a deranged, self-centered, conceited and extremely ambitious person who wouldn’t have second thoughts before killing someone. They enjoy the thrill to trample over people and love tormenting their wives. The characters have a very similar nature, but the question is still haunting our minds, Joo Dan Tae vs Han Ji Young, who is the best Vilain?
