Hero Jae-jung of TVXQ was selected as the Korean star foreigners want to date the most. In a special survey conducted by Arirang TV’s entertainment program “Showbiz Extra” to mark the show’s 1,000th episode, almost 25% of 3,000 foreign respondents in the Philippines, Vietnam, the United States and other countries chose Hero Jae-jung as the Korean star they want to date for a day.
This is not the first time that Hero Jae-jung was cited the favorite male star of Korea by foreigners. Earlier this year a Chinese satellite TV channel ranked him first in the list of Asia’s most handsome men, and he was placed third in a Japanese music program’s list of the male singers you want to have as boyfriends. Following Hero Jae-jung in the datable star list were the gorgeous guys of “Boys over Flowers” in the order of Lee Min-ho, Kim Hyun-joong, and Kim Beom.
Meanwhile, the 1,000th episode of “Showbiz Extra” will be taped on Wednesday evening at the New Millennium Hall of Sungkyunkwan University in Seoul. (KBS)
