From left to right, top to bottom: Lee Min-ho, Jeong Il-woo, Moon Geun-young, Jang Geun-seok.

Lee, of the hit new drama series “Boys over Flower,” has shot up to stardom. Jeong is also getting significant attention, and his drama “The Return of Iljimae” has yet to start.

Moon, who won the Grand Prix at the SBS TV awards late last year, was the heroine of the historical drama “Kingdom of the Winds” while Jang cemented his popularity for his role in the hit music drama “Beethoven Virus.”

All four were born in 1987. The talented foursome of 22 year olds is set to rule 2009.

◇ Tall, handsome, born stars
The four all have handsome looks and long, slender legs. Lee is 186cm, tall, Jeong 184cm tall, and Jang 182cm tall. Moon appears small but she is in fact 165cm tall.

Lee is well built. In the drama, his character sports curly hair so his head looks bigger on screen but strong facial looks match his masculine figure.

In contrast, Jeong and Jang have more of a feminine flair. They have smooth, small faces while Moon is close to a real-life fairy tale character.

◇ Big career break
Moon first gained attention playing the childhood character of actress Song Hye-gyo in the hit 2000 series “Autumn Tale.” The Moon syndrome began with her 2004 film “Young Bride.” In the latest “Kingdom of the Winds,” she was comparable to her co-star, veteran actor Park Sin-yang. Her role of a woman disguised as a man was also well played.

Jang played the rebellious younger brother of actress Jeon Do-yeon in the 2005 “Lovers in Prague.” He continued to appear in “Hwangjini” in 2005, “Hong Gil Dong” last year and in the latest “Beethoven Virus” in which he played a genius musician.

Jeong was another case of overnight stardom through the hit sitcom “Unstoppable High Kick,” which ended in 2007. In the lead role of the new drama “Return of Iljimae,” he is anticipated to play a character compared to Lee Jun-gi’s performance in the 2008 “Iljimae.”

Lee Min-ho is the latest heartthrob and teen superstar thanks to “Boys over Flower.” He debuted in the EBS drama “Secret Campus” in 2006 and appeared in a number of movies including “Public Enemy 3” and “Our School ET” but didn”t gain much attention. His role of the wealthy and cocky “Gu Jun-pyo” in “Boys” has earned him explosive popularity.

◇ Only 22, ready to soar
Receiving the grand prize at last year”s TV awards, Moon said she feels more sorry than grateful. She said “I want to continue acting but I’m greatly burdened by this award.”

Lee has confessed to difficult times in the past 3 to 4 years when he was unknown and things didn”t work out as well as he thought they would.

Actor Jang Geun-suk and singer Tim made cameo appearances in Son Ho-young’s music video for “I Know,” the title track for Son’s second album.

In the video, Son plays the part of a man in pain after realizing that his girlfriend is falling for someone else. Jang and Tim are the two men who try to seduce Son’s girlfriend.

Son sang a duet on Tim’s fourth album and Tim returned the favor by singing “I Hope” with Son for his new album. Unfortunately, Jang couldn’t participate in the actual music video shoot due to conflicting schedules with the MBC drama he’s currently starring in, “Beethoven Virus.” Instead, Jang makes his cameo through photographs used in the video.

“They are both very busy celebrities, so I was hesitant about asking them, but I’m grateful that they agreed readily,” Son said. He added that their moral support was of great help, as well.

Son will be holding a national tour which starts with his performance at the Melon AX Hall in Seoul on Oct. 25th and 26th.
