Acting-dols criteria (January 2022):
Due to the large number of idols in the acting field, we tried to limit the list to idols genuinely active in acting and not all acting idols. At Kpopmap, we always prioritize our readers’ opinions first. That’s why these criteria were made from the opinion of readers. We took a poll (here) and opened an open discussion on Reddit (here). You asked us to be stricter in our criteria and here are the new rules.
. In a K-Drama, Netflix Original Drama, or Movie:
- Two main roles (was clearly one of the main characters)
- One lead role and 2 supporting roles
- More than 4 supporting roles
. Guest roles cannot be considered support roles
. Only dramas longer than 6 episodes (special and short dramas excluded)
. Only movies released in Korean theaters (not just online) (with the exception of Netflix original movies)
. No web dramas (exception for Netflix)
. Korean releases only
Kpopmap’s criteria for acting idols are not absolute or the right answer. They are just criteria applied to Kpopmap content. And these criteria may change according to trends or fan opinions.
