While more BTS fans appear to support Jimin, some are rooting for his fellow member V, who already has acting experience in his resume. V debuted as an actor using his real name, Kim Taehyung, in the 2016 period drama “Hwarang.”
One of the leading Asian American suggestions is Charles Melton, who first won hearts as bad boy Reggie Mantle in The CW’s “Riverdale.” It turns out some fans are already planning to start a petition to get the Korean American actor on board.
Ross Butler, who played Reggie before Melton took over, is another pick for Eric. The Singapore-born star from Netflix’s “13 Reasons Why” has already experienced working with Disney, having starred in the Disney Channel series “K.C. Undercover” and films “Teen Beach 2” and “Perfect High.”
Some fans are rooting for Yoshi Sudarso, who is best known for his role as Koda or the Blue Dino Charge Ranger in “Power Rangers Dino Charge” (2015) and “Power Rangers Ninja Steel” (2018). The Indonesian-born actor is a skilled stuntman.
Alex Landi’s first big break happened when he was cast as Dr. Nico Kim in “Grey’s Anatomy.” Born in New York City, the Korean-Italian star first took interest in acting after seeing “The Lion King” on Broadway.
