CNN Go Top 20 Hottest Korean male stars on Philippine Local Newspaper

Last July 5, 2010, it was published in Manila Bulletin the news about the ranking of CNN's Hottest male celebrities in South Korea. 20 persons were selected and guess who is included? Of course, none other than SS501 Leader Kim Hyun Joong! No doubt he was included in the said category since he made a huge name especially when he played Ji hoo sunbae from the famous drama series " Boys Over Flowers ". If I would be the one to choose, Leader would definitely belong to the top spot! ( kekekeke Hyun Joong biased ^^ ) But then again guys, this is CNN that we are talking about! The fact that he was included in the Top 20 only means that he really is one of the HOTTEST male celebrities, not just in South Korea, but also in other parts of the world. Who would disagree? ^^


CNN Go names top 20 Korean male stars

July 5, 2010

Actors Jang Dong-gun and Daniel Henney, popstar Rain and 17 other hunks have been selected by CNN Go as South Korea’s 20 hottest male celebrities.
CNN Go is a new website by the leading news channel that is dedicated to what’s happening in Asia.
The top 20 list was selected based on the stars’ “drool” meter.
“There are men, and then there are MEN. These specially chosen South Korean celebs, who we've selected purely on the basis of how much drool they elicited from the female members of our staff, no doubt have solid acting, modeling and/or singing skills. But it's their chocolate abs, sublime faces and lean, mean, sex-machine bodies that get them a place on this list,” CNN Go wrote about the celebrities.
One interesting note is that the three stars of the hit drama series “Boys over Flowers” are on the list. They are Kim Hyun Joong, Lee Min-ho and Kim Bum.
Jang Dong-gun topped the list which CNN Go described as a star that “has been sizzling up screens for over a decade.”
Here are excerpts from the descriptions of CNN Go about the hottest male stars on the list:
Won Bin – “South Koreans are obsessed with actor/ model Won Bin. Can a man be more perfect? With his chiseled face and sultry voice, it's a wonder women don't faint at the very sight of him.”
Bae Yong Joon – “The highest paid South Korean celeb rose to fame in the 2002 KBS's mega hit "Winter Sonata". He did not only become a celebrity, but a worldwide superstar.”
Jo Jin-Mo – “Talented star Ju Jin-Mo will always be the ladies' man.”
Jo In-sung – “A beautiful face, great height and an unsurpassed talent.”
Lee Jun-ki – “His hard work ethic paid off after years as a model and taking small roles in many dramas.”
Daniel Henney - He has a soothing voice, perfect body, and exquisite manners. He is the whole package."
Other celebrities that made the top 20 are Dennis Oh, So JiSeob, Rain, Yoon SangHyun, Lee Min-Ho, Kim Hyun Joong, Kim Bum, Jang Geun Seok, Lee Seung-gi, Choi Min-Shik, Song Seung-Heon, Kwon SangWoo, and Ha Jung-woo.
