Hottest Young Actors doing Boys Love series. This hitlist is limited to rookies or actors who just dived into the Boys Love universe and have shown tremendous talent and excitement.

Kim Kang Min – 김강민

Hottest Young Actors: Kim Kang Min

Kim Kang Min (김강민 | South Korea | 23) As Han Ji Woo, he plays a no-nonsense, serious-looking chef who wants nothing from seasoned actor Kang Seo Joon (Son Woo Hyun). Proud but lonely, he succumbed to SeoJoon’s charm and started to relax a bit. There is depth in Kang Min’s acting – giving it an intriguing vibe. To My Star (S1 & S2) will be remembered as one of the top Korean BL because of the unusual, comedic, and in-your-face chemistry of the leads. He’s one of the Hottest Young Actors – BL or a standard show.

Kura Yuki – 倉悠貴

Hottest Young Actors: Kura Yuki

Kura Yuki (倉悠貴 | Japan | 22): A few years back, he was scouted by Sony Music Artists to become an actor. Yuki was then a fashion model for Men’s NON-NO. He has made a dozen drama series including 2 BL: HISKoisuru Tsumori Nante Nakatta (2019) and Kimi no Koto Dake Mite Itai – I Just Want To See You (2022). His first BL role can be characterized as timid yet daring in the end, while portraying Sakura (in Kimi with fellow male model Mizusawa Rintaro) borders on being naughty and flamboyant. He’s one of the hottest BL actors in Japan right now.

Boss Chaikamon – บอส ชัยกมล เสริมส่งวิทยะ

Hottest Young Actors: Boss Chaikamon

Boss Chaikamon Sermsongwittaya (บอส ชัยกมล เสริมส่งวิทยะ | Thailand | 23 ) In BL series Love in the Air, rookie Thai actor Boss acts quite aggressively, with a devil-may-care attitude reserved for the likes of certain Hollywood actors. While it may be too soon for that, Chaikamon’s Phayu dares his captive BL audience with his sexual instinct to tease and yes, seduce! If you have not seen this drama yet, then…

Kang Eun Bin – 강은빈

Hottest Young Actors: Kang Eun Bin

Kang Eun Bin (강은빈 | South Korea | 26) Eun Bin plays the vain and ambitious Si Won in the Korean BL hit series Blueming. As a rookie actor, he brought a painful, sentimentally-controlled, and angsty performance of a young man insecure about his past and still uncertain of his future. The gradual transformation of his relationship with Da Un (Jo Hyuk Joon) from antagonistic to intimate makes Blueming a series to watch. Season 2 is in the works, so we’ll have plenty more airtime to see the Si Won-Da Un dynamics.

Hank Wang – 王碩瀚

Hottest Young Actors: Hank Wang

Hank Wang (王碩瀚 | Taiwan | 25) Armed with a sexy smile and proven acting chops, Hank Wang pushes Be Loved In House to be a pleasure to watch. He was quoted as saying: “I decided to play BL in my own style. I think that love for others that comes from my heart has nothing to do with sex. I think it’s important to play the role according to my own interpretation of Shi Lei.”

Without sounding cliche, I think Wang is hot because he’s smart!

Hyun Jun – 허현준

Hottest Young Actors: Hyun Jun

Hyun Jun (허현준 | South Korea | 22) When reviewers say Yoo Jun ‘knows how to cry’, it gives no relevance except to praise the actor. Yet, actors are required to cry, are they not? In both seasons of Color Rush, it is not Jun’s crying that made him an ‘awesome’ actor, but rather how he interprets being a mono – it’s the interplay of emotions that is often the problem with other young actors.

Pond Ponlawit – 张锦琦

Hottest Young Actors: Pond Ponlawit

Pond Ponlawit (张锦琦 | Thailand | 23) Plays the role of a rebellious son who lusts after a close friend of his Mom. It may be the biggest acting challenge for 23-year-old Pond Ponlawit. Not that he has been exposed to less-challenging roles. But this ambitious drama, 180 Degree Longitude Passes Through Us, has been getting plenty of buzz for its matured theme. Can the viewers handle the heat?

Sato Arata – 佐藤 新

Sato Arata ( 佐藤 新 | Japan | 21) Arata is a member of Johnny’s Jr. group IMPACTors. Takara kun to Amagi kun is his first foray into Boys Love. He’s obviously the prime mover of the drama. As the elitist Takara, he has to portray an aloof and unexpressive youngster. Deep inside, he has the hots for his classmate, the energetic but pessimistic Amagi (fellow Johnny’s Oriyama Nao). He is one of Japan’s Hottest Young Actors, right this minute!
