When I heard that 2018 drama Why Secretary Kim was still popular enough to be added to a recent drama showcase in Japan, my first thought was Park Min Young. She is so popular in Japan for which started with Sungkyunkwan Scandal to City Hunter and now Secretary Kim. Those were the K-dramas that all were big hits in Japan and it’s spread out over the years so she really maintains a high level of popularity there. So the recent poll of most popular 30-something K-actress in Japan has her on top, no surprise. Second place goes to Yoona as her K-dramas Love Rain and The K2 are popular there plus she has the added name recognition and popularity from being in SNSD which J-fans love as well. Third spot is Son Ye Jin thanks to Crash Landing on You, followed by Park Shin Hye, Yoo In Na (that’s a surprise), Song Hye Kyo, Yoon Eun Hye (forever Goong and Coffee Prince love), Han Hyo Joo, and Jeon Ji Hyun round out the top 10.
