February 13 — Lee Sang Woo
Starring in the popular dramas “Glorious Day,” “A Word From Warm Heart” and “Goddess of Marriage,” Lee Sang Woo has sweetness and sunshine written all over his face!
February 15 — Jin Se Yeon
No matter what kind of anguish or upset her characters may face in her recent dramas “Doctor Stranger,” “Inspiring Generation,” “Bridal Mask” and “Five Fingers,” Jin Se Yeon has a resting sweet face, in our opinion!
February 19 — Amber Kuo
Taiwanese actress Amber Kuo can be unpredictable, stubborn and materialistic as her characters in “Love Forward,” “Channel-X,” “The Happy Times of That Year” and “Invincible Shan Bao Mei,” but one look into her big eyes will tell you that sweetness is her true nature!

Hong Jong Hyun may show his lighter side as MC of “SBS Inki Gayo” and as a star of “We Got Married Season 4” with Yura, but we can’t get over his mysterious, motorcycle-riding character in the recent hit drama “Mama.”
February 18 — Kang So Ra
Kang So Ra is a beautiful Korean actress who just seems to have a lot going on behind her soulful eyes. Maybe that’s why she plays such smart, multilayered characters in “Incomplete Life,” “Doctor Stranger” and “Dream High 2.”

THE FUNNY BOY/GIRL TYPE
February 11 — Go Ah Ra
Go Ah Ra is a beautiful Korean actress with unforgettable hazel eyes, but she can make her face contort into the most comedic expressions that few actresses can match. See all elastic facial expressions for yourself in “You’re All Surrounded,” “Reply 1994” and “No Limit.”
February 22 — Kim Chang Wan
The veteran Korean musician (of the Kim Chang Wan Band) and actor has played some dark roles (his most recent ones in “Secret Door,” “Secret Love Affair,” “My Love From the Star” and “Who Are You”) but Kim Chang Wan’s naturally smiling face makes us think he must be the nicest guy and much more like the nurturing, caring father figure of his character in “Good Doctor.”
February 23 — Aziz Ansari
If there’s an office clown in every workplace, it would be someone like Aziz Ansari. The American comedian became a household name with his iconic role as Tom Haverford in the comedy “Parks and Recreation.” See the funny man in “Parks and Recreation Season 1” and “Parks and Recreation Season 2.”
February 28 — Min Hyo Rin
Min Hyo Rin has had dramatic roles after she broke into television dramas in 2011, such as her maid character in “Romance Town,” but her current starring role in the Viki-exclusive drama series “Perservere, Goo Hae Ra” proves that she was made for comedy!
