Park Seo Joon
Someone please call the fire department – Park Seo Joon’s abs are on fire. While you’re at it, you might need to get some first responders out here to revive those that might have suddenly stopped breathing! Abdominals for days, perfect sinewy arms, and a sculpted chest to boot, it’s no wonder the internet is full of shirtless images of this dude.
In all seriousness though, Park Seo Joon is known in South Korea for being more than a pretty face and a beautiful body. Park Seo Joon completed his mandatory military service before breaking into the K-drama industry, but it didn’t take long for his transition to occur upon discharge.
Having left service in 2010, Park Seo Joon made his Korean drama entertainment debut in 2011. The man has been a staple on Korean television screens ever since, and we haven’t shied away from telling you all about him.
Like many other K-drama heartthrobs, Hyun Bin debuted and began his career in the K-drama world before his military service. Off to a rocky start, his first project in 2002 never made it to the air due to a lack of funding.

Still wildly popular today, we dare you to view shirtless Hyun Bin photos without breaking a sweat.
