Every time there is a survey of some sort, it’s always entertaining to casually peruse which star has maintained top dog popularity and who may have dropped off a bit. This weekend Section TV did a poll for its 800 episode, asking 800 people to name the Top 8 Big Stars of South Korea. This one sounds like a pure popularity vote without any qualifications, and asking the question at this time yielded some names that surprised me.
The expected four names showed up with Yoo Jae Suk, Kim Soo Hyun, Jeon Ji Hyun, and Ha Jung Woo. The other four likely made the list due to the poll being taken right now – Kim Tae Hee, Kim Woo Bin, Ji Sung, and Hwang Jung Eum round out the full Top 8. It’s good to see Ji Sung and Hwang Jung Eum made popularity polls, they both have such scrappy acting careers and really deserve this breakout year they have had. I’m a little indifferent to seeing Kim Woo Bin and Kim Tae Hee, I feel both haven’t done a project recently that is all that memorable for me.
