K-viewers Select Lee Byung Hun and Kim Tae Ri as Top K-drama Actors in 2018 Gallup Poll


The cast of tvN period drama Mr. Sunshine continue to win accolades and this time the two leads top the just released Gallup poll of Korean audiences’ favorite K-drama stars. Lee Byung Hun came in first followed by his costar Kim Tae Ri, proving that Mr. Sunshine left a strong impression on top of the successful ratings. Third was 2018 IT boy Jung Hae In still riding the Pretty Noona Who Buys Me Food high and the surprise fourth is Park Bo Gum who just got back on the small screen three weeks ago with Encounter (Boyfriend). Check out the fill list below but the biggest LOL and true respect is how Gong Yoo came in 10th and Song Joong Ki also made the tail end of the list when neither had a drama in the last two years! I guess the staying power of 2016 dramas Goblinand Descendants of the Sun is strong indeed, and together with Mr. Sunshine all hail the power of screenwriter Kim Eun Sook.
