Will we be seeing them this year?

While many are interested in what actors and actresses will be coming forth with, there are a few that are being missed.

Bae Yong-joon who is an Asian star beyond Korea, has been hinting comeback for a few years now and it's becoming more difficult to see him. He made a special appearance in the 2011 KBS 2TV drama "Dream High" but that was all.

Bae Yong-joon made his debut in 1994 with the drama "Love Greetings" and continued to star in more dramas such as "Youth's Sun" (1995), "PaPa" (1996), "First Love - 1996" (1997), "Hotelier" (2001) and "Winter Sonata" (2002). He's slowly made his way up without a slump in between.

His biggest success was "Winter Sonata" which created the new term 'Hallyu' and created a dent in Korean Cultural History. He earned the nickname Yonsama and continued to star in "Untold Scandal" (2003), "April Snow" (2005) and drama "The Legend" (2007).

However, it's been 8 years since he stopped appearing in anything and despite several rumors about his comeback, the timings have come and gone. Pressure increases with time but we hope we see him again sooner or later.

There are fans waiting for Won in. He's 20 years into the biz but his total filmography adds up to about 10. He's known for his meticulousness when it comes to choosing his work but the so-called peak of an actor's life is passing by without bearing.

Won Bin made his debut in 1997 with the KBS2TV drama "Propose". His good looks made him stand out as soon as he appeared and it was enough to draw anyone's attention. He continued to star in "Ready Go" (1997), "Crazy" (1999) and rose as the symbol of a rebellious youth.

He cut off his trademark long hair in the drama "Tough Guy's Love" (2000) and became a country boy. Then he starred in "Autumn in my Heart" leaving behind a classic line, "How much do you need?" and shook up the whole of Asia. He was a star in movies too. He starred in "Guns and talks" (2001), "Taegukgi" (2004), "My Brother" (2004), "Mother - 2009" (2009) and "The Man From Nowhere" (2010). It didn't take him long to comeback with "The Man From Nowhere" in the following year after "Mother" and the result was beyond expectations. However, Won Bin hasn't come back in more than 4 years.

Last year, he sent out hope to his fans by telling Elle that "Not right away but I am coming back with something soon and I wait for the day I can smile at my fans again".

Won Bin's girlfriend Lee Na-young has also been on a break. She debuted in 1999 as an ad model and continued onto "Ruler of Your Own World" (2002), "Ireland" (2004), "The Fugitive Plan B" (2010) and more. She starred in films too such as, "Someone Special", "Our Happy Time" and "Lady Daddy".

However, she's only been seen through photo shoots and commercials. The 2012 movie "Howling" was the last movie she ever made and the drama "The Fugitive Plan B" in 2010. We hope we get to see her colorful person soon in a movie or a drama.
