Choi Bool Am and Park Bo Gum are the Old and Young Top Picks for Favorite K-star in 2019 Gallup Poll — 12 Comments

  1. All my favorite are in the poll. Hyun Bin, Han Ji Min, Gong Yoo, and Song Hye Kyo. I love to see them all collaborate in one production together. Especially with Gong Yoo, Han Ji Min, and Song Hye Kyo. ??

  2. Just look at my boy PBG with all those veteran actors. He dominated young generation even male fans in their 10s and 20s. of course there’s a Noona fans too. And my man, gongyoo taking the lead after him. Oh Gosh just give me, seobok already!

    And of course my dear Kim hyeja deserved all the love.

  3. I really thought Park BoGum had more noona fans but facts : he’s loved by all generations.

    And yes he’s the youngest among veteran actors in that list.

    No doubt, this boy is exceptionnal.

    God bless him.

  4. Oh warm fuzzies with my personal faves making the cut with PBG, SJK, JJH KHS and JIS so absolutely adorbs and glad to read this post. Well done team ❤️

  5. This is gallup drama stars ranking. Jun ji hyun song hye kyo are the two representative actress of their generation and of last 2 decades.. None of 90s actresses maybe expect kim tae ri has their aura. From 70s we had lee young ae , go hyun jung. Jjh ranking in top 10 is even more special considering she has been always known as top movie actress. And just 2 dramas in last 6 years. But one movie in last 5 years has affected her rank in movies where no actress was listed. I hope she makes a comeback . One thing i like about korea is movie and drama actors get same amount of endorsements cf. And even song hye kyo is above other top movie actresses along with jun ji hyun. Other industries has class difference. But in korea they are equal. Song hye kyo travk recoed in dramas in last 2 decades remains unmatched. Blockbsuters over blockbusters

    • JJH is my all time K favourite actress ever although I have many favourites. I could marathon watch all her works and still not tire. She for me is my go to when I want to watch something not too hard on the brain and for a laugh. I’ll rewatch her dramas and films on loop. Also knowing she’s fiercely private with her family and personal life just showing up for CF endorsements and the like appreciate her even more. A truly iconic being that is a star and legend in her own right. Love her to bits. I hope she returns to dramaland sometime soon please but when she’s ready.❤️

  6. Gallup poll is serious and prestigious, glad to see the results.
    For any actor/actress : to be in this list is already huge. And when i read some “big” names in the list : Bogum can be proud.


  7. When you realized PBG make it to the list without KES and ‘Noona, please carry my drama’ power. As his fan, Im so proud.
    He is leading the young generation, even can stand higher than top star actors which more senior than him.

    Dear bogummy, please pict your next drama! Everyone waiting for your comeback ?

  8. Song Hye Kyo is the second highest female in the list after the veteran actress kim Hye Ja. It feels wonderful to know she is loved so much.

  9. PBG, SHK, HB, JJH, GY, HJM. Wow, all the good ones. PBG esp since he’s the youngest and and is now pulling his own weight. Akk the very best for them. They deserve to be in the list. Hard work pays off.
