Child Stars Then and Now Part I: Yeo Jin Goo, Lee Hyun Woo

Lee Hyun Woo may be a grown up boy now but before hew as starring in "Master of Study," and "Secretly, Gently," Lee was a child actor playing in huge roles in works like "The Legend," "King Seojong the Great," and "Queen Seondeok." As the cutie pie got older he took on musical theater and even dipped his hand in hosting the music program, "Music On Top" alongside Doojoon from B2ST. His biggest role to date has been the box office smash hit "Secretly, Greatly" where he played a North Korean spy disguised as a high school kid. Check him out then and now:

Yeo Jin Goo is just 16 years old but he's managed to snag roles since he was a wee bit kid. Yeo is best known for his stints in "Giant, "Moon Embracing the Sun," and "Missing You." He took on his first male lead character in the thriller, "Hwa-yi-." We're all still hoping that he and fellow child actress Ha Yeon Soo fall in love and procreate. Can you imagine how insanely cute their kids would be?

You know her now as a member of f(x), but Sulli was once a well known child actress. She's starred in "The Ballad of Seodong," "Love Needs a Miracle," and "BABO." Last year, Sulli acted alongside SHINee's Minho in the drama, "To the Beautiful You." Look how adorable she was and how insanely cute she still is now!

Child model and actor Yoo Seung Ho made his film and drama debut in "The Way Home" and "Daddy Fish." Since then, he's starred in a string of films and dramas, including music videos where he played the male lead. He's had quite the successful career for such a young lad and though he's currently serving his mandatory military service, we know that when he finishes, he'll be welcomed back with open arms.

Trouble Maker, the hit-making pair comprised of 4Minute member HyunA and Hyunseung of idol group B2ST, first impressed fans (and sparked a bit of controversy) in 2011 with the release of their first single "Trouble Maker" and their overtly sensual performances.

MelOn, South Korea's largest music streaming site, is getting prepared for their annual MelOn Music Awards next month and have released their list of the best and brightest K-Pop artists of the year.

So far, 2013 has been a tremendous year for the Korean music industry. With a shocking amount of innovation and variety, idol groups shared the spotlight with a host of talented soloists, many artists branched out into different genres and styles, and a long list of rookies hit the scene with a vengeance.

MelOn narrowed the laundry list of talented acts down to ten who had a strong impact on K-Pop this year as the 2013 MelOn Music Awards Top 10.

Like Us on Facebook :

The winners include Ailee, B2ST, Busker Busker, Davichi, Dynamic Duo, EXO, G-Dragon, IU, SISTAR, and SHINee.

The ten elite artists were selected after considering their individual online sales numbers (80% of the ranking) and the results of an online poll (the remaining 20%) that saw an astonishing 1.74 million votes cast.

LOEN Entertainment, MelOn's parent company, noted that there was a strong presence from male pop idols in this year's music sales - pointing out that G-Dragon, SHINee, EXO and B2ST were all chart toppers and fan favorites.

Additionally, LOEN explained 2013 saw a good showing by female vocalists with Ailee, IU, Davichi, and girl group SISTAR topping the list.

The addition of indie-style pop with Busker Busker and famed hip-hop pair Dynamic Duo to the list of 2013's hottest artists proves that K-Pop is diversifying and welcoming new styles with open arms.

The top ten acts will be recognized at the MelOn Music Awards ceremony on November 14 where they will go head to head for the titles of Best Artist, Best Album, and Best Song. The final decision will be made through a second round of online voting.

Other categories that will be officially awarded at the ceremony are Best Newcomer, Hot Trend Award, and Best Global Artist.

The MelOn Music Awards will take place at the Olympic Gymnastics Stadium in Seoul on November 14.
