Arirang Surveys Popularity of Korean Celebrities

2006/12/27 | Permalink | Source

Thanks for staying with us.
We at Arirang just recently conducted a global survey on the popularity of Korean celebrities.
The survey in mid-December asked 775 people from 46 countries with whom they'd like to watch the first sunrise of the new year.
Topping the female chart were actresses Song Hye-kyo and Kim Tae-hee, who tied at just over 20 percent.
Other leading ladies included Lee Young-ae and Ha Ji-won .
In the male category, number ONE was the heartthrob singer-actor Rain grabbing 24 percent or 189 votes.
Trailing behind him were names like Jang Dong-gun, Lee Joon-gi and Bae Yong-joon .
