Kwak Si-yang (곽시양)

Updated: Oct 1, 2023

When Kwak Si-yang first appeared as a wide-eyed college student hiding a family secret in SBS’s makjang-free drama Glorious Day (2014), we wouldn’t have thought he’d pull off so many other roles, including being a villain. But this environmental and civil engineering college graduate has come a long way since then.

Kwak has shown his range over the years. He starred in his first lead role as a fraternal twin brother in a love triangle in Persevere, Goo Hae Ra (2015). In the same year, he gained more attention despite his small role as a chef in Park Bo-young and Jo Jung-suk’s hit comedy-drama Oh My Ghost.

In 2016, he gave audiences a very serious second lead syndrome in Second to Last Love. He gets in the way of noona Kang Min-too (Kim Hee-ae) and her budding romance with stoic Go Sang-sik (Ji Jin-hee). He also starred in Mirror of the Witch in the same year. In 2017, he tried his hand and succeeded as a villain in the star-studded drama Chicago Typewriter.

His recent dramas include Welcome 2 Life (2019) and Alice (2020). He played a prince in the sageuk Lovers of the Red Sky (2021) and a ridiculously attractive talent manager in Idol: The Coup (2021).

When he’s not working on dramas or films, he’s a homebody with excellent kitchen knife skills. He’s one of the noteworthy members of the television show My Little Old Boy.

Audiences loved his bromance with Seo In-guk in the crime comedy Cafe Minamdang (2022).

We’re all looking forward to the surprising roles he has in store.
