2009/07/09 | Permalink | Source

A recent poll shows that actress Song Hye-kyo is the favorite Korean celebrity among Hong Kong people. The poll was conducted by the Hong Kong office of the Korea National Tourism Organization on June 11-14 on 1,145 people who attended the 2009 Hong Kong International Tourism Exhibition.

The results showed that Song Hye-kyo received 40.4 percent of the votes. She was trailed by Lee Young-ae at 40.2 percent. Lee took the number one spot in the same poll last year. Other Korean celebrities who were picked by the respondents included Jun Ji-hyun (31.2 percent), Bae Yong-joon (16.2 percent), singer Rain (14.4 percent) and Ji Jin-hee (12.9 percent).

With regard to the most popular tourist spots in Korea, 68.2 percent of respondents chose Seoul. More than 42 percent cited Jeju and 24.7 percent picked Gangwon Province. With regard to the most impressive experience in Korea, the respondents cited shopping (62.2 percent), food (52.8 percent), natural landscape including flowers (34.6 percent), skiing (34.3 percent) and amusement parks (28.2 percent).

The head of the Hong Kong office of the Korea National Tourism Organization said the results of the poll serve as yet further proof that Hong Kong tourists like shopping and food, and that a growing number of Hong Kong people visit Korea to see flowers.
