There are many K-Pop idols who have pursued an acting career on top of the music careers. However, some idols have had exposure in front of the camera well before dancing and singing ever came into view. Here are nine popular idols who used to be child actors once upon a time:

9. Hong-gi - FT Island

Before he became the lead singer of FT Island, Hong-gi once starred in the fantasticial "Magic Kid Masuri", which featured mages and of course, magic!
