Recently, a company that specializes in online research released the results of a survey for which male celebrity that women wanted to have a date with on March 14, which is White Day (when men give women presents such as flowers or chocolate).
A total of 2,148 women in their 20s took part in this survey to choose among 16 male actors who were particularly popular these days.
Although the competition must have been tough, Kim Soo Hyun came out on top with 30.3% of votes (650) as he gained immense popularity from "You Who Came From The Stars." Following him in second was Kim Woo Bin of "Heirs" with quite a large gap of 13.5% (289).
Third place had a three-way tie with Kim Soo Hyun"s co-star Park Hae Jin, "Emergency Couple"s Choi Jin Hyuk, and "Single Cunning Lady"s Joo Sang Wook
Jun Ji Hyun appeared at the Rouge & Lounge presentation in Gangnam on March 7. For the event, she wore a red cocktail dress from the Lanvin Resort 2014 collection, which she paired with a Rouge & Lounge Nike bag and black peeptoe pumps. The outfit, with the structured blazer worn over the shoulders, was clearly reminiscent of the outfits worn by the actress in the role of Cheon Song Yi for the hit drama “Man from the Stars.” Many humorous comparisons were made by the Korean media, who noted that it seemed as though Cheon Song Yi had returned.
Jun Ji Hyun, who currently serves as the spokesmodel of the Korean handbag and accessories brand, posed with the same bag for the Spring/Summer 2014 collection photoshoot earlier.
