When you look at a Korean star, it’s hard to believe that they could ever be ugly. So when there is a serious and sad scene happening in a drama, an ugly cry face sometimes catches me off guard and actually makes me laugh out loud. Here are some Korean stars with some of the funniest ugly cry faces.
1. TVXQ's Yunho
Yunho is known as one of the “Kings of K-pop” because of his immense popularity when promoting with TVXQ. So when he made his acting debut, people were excited to see what he had in store. He turned out to be a great actor, who put his all into his scenes.... Which lead to this hilarious ugly cry face in The Night Watchman’s Journal.
2. Gong Hyo Jin
Gong Hyo Jin usually shines as an actress in serious scenes and melodramas. So it’s no surprise that her crying face is very realistic and therefore not exactly picture perfect. Here she is pictured in Master’s Sun showing a nice grimace.
3. Jo In Sung
Gong Hyo Jin’s love interest in It’s Okay, That’s Love, Jo In Sung also has a notable cry face. Perhaps his most famous is his crying over the phone scene in the drama Something Happened in Bali. Here, his face scrunches up as he tries to hide his crying and bites on his fist to muffle his tears. It is actually a very heart wrenching scene, but also makes you giggle because of his face.
4. Joo Won
Joo Won is an actor known for being able to cry on the spot and can weep silently to get that “I’m sad but still look good” face. But he can also sob without holding back. The majority of his scenes in Gaksital are very serious and sad, but once you notice how funny his cry face is, you won’t be able to unsee it, which will lead to some awkward moments when you laugh during a death scene.
5. Jun Ji Hyun
Jun Ji Hyun can be so funny and cute especially when she played her character in My Love from the Star. But apart from her purposely comical crying scenes, her crying face is usually just as beautiful as her normal self. But there are a few moments when her ugly face comes out making us smile at how relatable it looks.
6. Kim Soo Hyun
My Love from the Star co-star, Kim Soo Hyun is a major Hallyu star, known all around Asia for his good looks and sincere acting. But when he really starts to cry, he can look like a little boy. So you will sniffle and weep with him while giggling at the same time, making everyone around you look at you like you’re crazy.
7. Seo In Guk
Seo In Guk can be a charming, handsome manly man when he is flirting with a girl on camera. But when he has to cry in a scene, the tears streaming down his face make you want to give him a big hug to make him feel better.
These actors crying with all their hearts really makes them more relatable and more human! Who do you think has the best ugly cry face?
