The Best Yoo Ah-in Dramas So Far (2021)

This is the list of the best Yoo Ah-in dramas ranked best to worst. Yoo Ah-in in dramas rose to fame as the second male lead in the hit historical romance drama ‘Sungkyunkwan Scandal‘.

I want to say he is one of the Kings of Historical Korean dramas because most of his hits have that type of backdrop (I will get into them below). So if you love historical action/romance, he is your guy.

Rank is determined in the following priority: 1. must be main/co-main lead, 2. Awards won, especially if award is very prestigious, 3. asianwiki rating, 4. Viki rating, then if needed, TV (Nielsen) %.

Of course, these are just my opinions 🙂
