Yoona is, as we all know, currently starring in KBS2′s Prime Minister and I, but even though she′s doing respectably well in the drama, her most recent headline making news was with another man (ahem-boyfriendLeeSeungGi-ahem).
Still everyone′s surprise, the reaction was generally positive - proven by the fact that Yoona raked in 49.3% of the votes, beating out LeeSsang′s Gary, B1A4 and Ailee.

“Prime Minister And I” – Episode 7, 8 Recap by Couch-Kimchi:
So you already know that I had to be talked into watching this and my reasons for not wanting to watch were fairly lame. I’m back to confess once again how wrong I was. (LOL) We only had one episode this week but it was so much fun! A pivotal episode where both our leads seem to be aware they’re falling in love. *squeeee*
Da Jung tries helping our Prime Minister sleep by reading to him but she falls asleep – and plops right onto his shoulder. However, she wakes up when he tries to move her into a comfortable position and accuses him of being a wolf. (LOL) He also doesn’t like her using his bathroom, especially when she waltzes out in a bathrobe with wet hair.
Uncle Jung-Ki plots to have an important cabinet meeting cancelled by bribing other Ministers not to show up
It isn’t the lowest we′ve seen, but KBS’ Prime Minster and I continued its reign over last place with lower ratings.
On Monday night, Prime Minister and I recorded 6.9 percent in ratings, slipping back from its previous 7.3 percent.
The lowered ratings come from an episode that included a kiss, a special serenade from Lee Bum Soo, and a cameo appearance from EXO’s Suho.
As EXO’s Suho is expected to appear for a longer period of time in the following episodes, perhaps Prime Minster and I will see the EXO effect in the coming days, especially since nothing else seems to be working against such a big rival like MBC′s Empress Ki.
