Acting-dols criteria (January 2022):
Due to the huge number of idols in the acting field, we have tried to limit the list to idols genuinely active in acting and not to all the idols acting. At Kpopmap, we always prioritize the opinions of our readers first. That is why these criteria have been made out of readers’ opinions. We held a poll (here) and we opened an open discussion on Reddit (here). You’ve asked us to be stricter in our criteria and so here are the new rules.
. In a K-Drama, Netflix Original drama, or a movie:
- Two lead roles (was clearly one of the main characters)
- One lead role and 2 supporting roles
- More than 4 supporting roles
. Guest roles can’t be considered supporting roles
. Only dramas over 6 episodes (special and short dramas are excluded)
. Only movies released in Korean theaters (not just online) (at the exception of Netflix original movies)
. No web dramas (exception for Netflix)
. Only Korean releases
Kpopmap’s criteria for acting-dols are not absolute or the right answer. It is just criteria applied in the content of Kpopmap. And these criteria can change according to the trends or fans’ opinions.
The other acting-dols have been included in the following article:
