The C-media is taken to calling the next generation of Hallyu kings being Lee Min Ho, Kim Soo Hyun, Lee Jong Seok, and Kim Woo Bin. Lest you want to quibble with your favorite oppa being left off the list, these four are indeed the current hottest it-boys of the moment so I’ll let them enjoy the limelight and see if it lasts. I think Kim Woo Bin’s upside in the greatest, and by that I mean capacity for acting growth and career diversity. He’s not tied down by his looks which are actually the aspect of him that might take the longest to win casual fans over. He looks very manly with strong features and definitely not the preferred chiseled pretty flower boys that most of his acting colleagues fall into. Kim Woo Bin’s star rose alongside Lee Min Ho for Heirs but he also had a blockbuster K-movie Friends 2 last year. Due to his exploded popularity, Kim Woo Bin is striking while the iron is hot and starting to do overseas fan meetings. Last week he hit up Taiwan for his first fan meeting in that country and was quite taken back with the hundreds of fans who showed up at the airport to greet him. He held a press conference for the Taiwan press and poked fun at his own unique looks, comparing himself to a dinosaur and wishing for a day of having Lee Min Ho’s face just to see what that feels like. Due to his short stay jam packed schedule, the media brought all the famous Taiwanese snacks to the press conference just so he can say that he got to sample it and I heard the boba tea went over quite well. The next day Kim Woo Bin held his fan meeting for thousands of fans, playing games, answering questions, and even singing for them. Coincidentally, another Korean actor was in Taiwan a few days before Kim Woo Bin for his own fan meeting, namely Lee Hyun Woo, who just so happens to be Kim Woo Bin’s co-star in the upcoming caper K-movie The Professionals. Can’t wait to see that!
