I wonder if Basic House did their research before hiring Moon Geun Young and Won Bin as their spokes couple for 2011. The reason I say this is because both have been selected by Sohu (China’s top search engine) for inclusion into their annual 50 Most Beautiful People of the World picks.
In fact, only four Korean entertainers made it on the list, and Moon Guen Young was the only K-actress selected. Rounding out the K-stars selected are Kang Dong Won (#24) and Song Joong Ki (#25) (Won Bin was listed at #22 and Moon Geun Young at #23). A very gorgeous and eclectic group to be sure. These numbers are not meant as a ranking, so the 50 selected are not ranked vis-a-vis each other. Each person is given a number simply for ease of reference.
