His transformation is outstanding...

Rebel, murderer, chaebol, a knight on a white horse...

Tranforming into various characters for sixteen years...

A late bloomer who has been in the spotlight since two years ago...

Firm base in television as well...

It is Namgoong Min's world. The current SBS drama "Falsify" has gone over 12% and it doesn't seem like it's going to fall. The actor debuted in 2001 with the movie "Bungee Jumping of their Own" and started becoming popular in 2015 with "The Girl Who Sees Smells". Then he made a big hit with the KBS 2TV drama "Chief Kim". He can do anything from romance to comedy to action.

We take a look at Namgoong Min's undaunted struggles and the current pace that he's going at with the help of those who gave him water and sunlight to grow well.

Namgoong Min first appeared on TV with a KBS 2TV drama in 2003. He was called the "Bae Yong-joon look alike". He attempted a new look with the 2004 KBS 1TV drama "My Precious". His rebellious but heart wrenching performance earned him the 2005 KBS Drama Awards Grand Prize.

He joined the military in 2006 and returned with a drama in 2010, but he didn't make it big. He was usually cast in innocent and righteous roles. Then he played in in "Can You Hear my Heart", "Cheongdam-dong Alice" and "My Secret Hotel", but without much change in his popularity.

Namgoong Min looked for a way out with another attempt at something new. In the SBS drama "The Girl Who Sees Smells", he played a cruel murderer. Then in the SBS drama "Remember", he was a crazy character with bone-chilling eyes and particular method of speech. He earned himself the SBS Drama Awards Grand Prize that year.

In the 2016 drama "Beautiful Gong Shim", he returned with a comical character and made a big break with "Chief Kim" earlier this year. He was a bad but loving guy. His playful expressions and coy behavior brought him some good feedback.

In the SBS drama "Falsify", Namgoong Min plays a heavy thinker who digs the truth out of the socially corrupted. Some say he's like the character in "Chief Kim", but there's no comedy here.

Now Namgoong Min is a trusted actor. His numerous attempts in change of character have been successful so far and over the past sixteen years he's performed in works that span many genres such as mellow, comedy, action, and more.

Sources say there won't be anyone who will be able to overtake Namgoong Min in the near future.
