Actor Biases

I am doing 2 different posts as there are way too many biases to put in one post.
First one was all the idol biases whereas this post is all about the actors.
Forewarning: it is mostly Korean actors, but there are a few from China and Japan that I like too.
I personally am listing what dramas I actually have watched with each actor as I probably heard of some, but never watched that they did. 

I will do the Korean actors first then the others since it is rare for me to watch Chinese or Japanese dramas.
First will be the *ultimate* biases then regular ones, but not in any particular order.

Korean Boy Band Biases

As I have hardly any friends who are into Korean music; this is like my outlet.
Bias is a one-sided crush for favorite idols or actors.
I tend to lean more towards the boy bands, but actually have 2 favorite girl crushes. 

So I am going to post according to order of band members that are my biases. 
The last few are sort of random, but 2 are solo artists whereas the 3rd is a girl band member. 
It'll just be birth/stage name, band and role so the post isn't too long. haha

I will add any terminology so it will not be confusing.
