KBS Releases 2018 Ranking of South Korea’s Top Entertainer Beauties of All Time

The list is subjective of course but I’m always curious to see if the populace views beauty how I may perceive it. The 2018 list of 30 Top Korean Beauties of All Time and I foresee debate over the top 2 position, from whether either lady deserves to be there and whether their ranking should be switched. The number 1 South Korean beauty picked is Kim Tae Hee, followed by Song Hye Kyo in number 2. Rounding out the top 5 is Lee Young Ae, Kim Hee Sun, and Kim Yuna.

The next 6-10 ranking is Jeon Ji Hyun, Kim Hye Soo, older actress Jung Yoon Gi, Son Ye Jin, and Suzy. Even I can’t believe Suzy is in the top 10, lol, goes to show just how popular she is in Korea despite the consensus commentary about her acting abilities. Check out the full list of 30 below.
