BAE YONG JOON
I dont think any explanation is needed why I chose him. I just love this guy but I do confess that I was not a fan yet when Winter Sonata took Asia by storm. I now laugh at myself for thinking that he was just another bland actor a few years back. Now I cannot get enough of this guy.
According to the May 3, 2005 issue of NEWSWEEK (Asian International Edition), Bae’s fan base covers a wide range of Asian female demographics, including middle aged and married women who mobs him when he pays a visit to a particular Asian country. Newsweek also notes that “Japanese women are taking up the study of Korean language and history” because of Bae. (Source: Wikipedia)
The way I see it, Koreans should really thank this guy for making Korea more interesting to other Asian countries. Now, I truly understand fully that whenever he is nominated may it by popular vote or otherwise he always emerges on top. The guy truly is a phenomenon.
