If you are a fan of Im SI Wan, you must be looking for more of his Movies and Kdramas to binge watch, right? Don’t worry I have my recommendations for you.
Idol turned actor Si-Wan featured Kdrama “Tracer” has been receiving great response from the audience not just in Korea but all over the world. Kdrama fans are appreciating the “handsome hunk” main lead “Hwang Dong joo” which is played by “Im Si Wan”.
However this is not the first time this handsome singer and actor has won fans’ heart with his acting. His dramas like “Run On”, “Misaeng : incomplete life”, “Strangers from hell” etc. and movies like “The Merciless’, “A melody to remember” etc. have created a mark in fans’ mind. He is also a member of Kpop group ZE:A.
First time I saw Im Si Wan was in “Run On”, his character “Ki Seon Gyeom” became one my most favourite Kdrama male leads. Infect Run On also became one my most favourite Kdramas. I have mentioned this multiple times in my previous blogs.
Here are some of my Kdrama and Kmovie recommendations of Im SI Wan –
Must watch Im SI Wan Movies and TV shows
Korean Dramas of Im Si Wan
“Tracer” features SI-Wan along with Go Ah-Sung and had a number one viewership on its debut. Drama is about a team of Taxation department in South Korea.
The team leader of this department is Hwang Dong Joo (Si Wan). This team tries to fight against corruption in taxation and traces the hidden money from the eyes of tax department. This thriller series is full of mysteries and shows a new side of SI-Wan as an actor.
Here comes my love – Run On. Even I don’t know why I am so obsessed with this show. Run On is a coming of age, slice of life rom-com Kdrama. Starred by Im Si Wan and Shin Se-Kyung this show presents one of the healthiest relationships of Kdamaland.
From innocent – athletic male lead character “Ki Seon-Gyeom”, considered and bold subtitler “Oh Mi-Joo” to second main lead couple “Yeong-Hwa” and “Dan-Ah” every character is a delight to watch and entertains the audience through each episode.
Misaeng : Incomplete life
Misaeng : Incomplete life” is about a young guy Jang Geu-Rae (SI-Wan) who wanted to become a pro GO player but ends up in a company as an intern. Now he tries to do his best at work along with his colleagues and competitors.
It is a 2014 released Kdrama which made Im Si-Wan to win “Jury Award” and “Best New Actor Award” in 2015. If you are a youth then I must say you would really enjoy watching this series as it deals with work life challenges of an intern.
“Traingle” Kdrama got SI-Wan “Best new actor” in 2014. This show is about three brothers who were separated in childhood after their parents passed away. These three brother meet again after 20 years where Im SI wan played the character of youngest and cold brother.
As the drama includes story of three brothers so it will be a good watch for “Bromance” Loves of Kdramaland (like me). Although drama is little bit long as it has 26 episodes. So the “Trainge” in this show are these three brothers and their life attached with each-other.
Strangers from Hell
“Strangers from Hell” is one of the popular Kdramas of 2019. It is a horror-thriller, adopted from a web toon of the same name. Im Si Wan played the character of “Yoon Jong-Woo” along with Lee Dong-Wook who played Seo Moon – Joo.
This suspense thriller is about a 20 year old who leaves his small town for employment in Seoul and is now forced to live in an apartment due to lack of money. It is a small place where residents share the place but gradually mysterious things starts happening there. If you enjoy watching this genre then I bet you will have an amazing experience watching it.

A Melody to remember
