Lifestyle website Metro.Style launched a “Most Beautiful Korean Actresses” poll, which gathered over 2.8 million votes from fans and proclaimed “It’s Okay to Not Be Okay” star Seo Ye-ji as the winner, followed by “Crash Landing on You’s” Son Ye-jin.
Bringing the #KFeverOnMetro campaign to the next level, Metro.Style initiated the poll to give tribute to these female Korean stars, who have kept many Filipinos company through binge-watching their K-dramas during the pandemic.
The campaign was launched last August, and fans were asked to nominate the Korean actresses they find to be deserving to be called “most beautiful.” The nominees were Kim Ji-won (“Fight for My Way” and “Arthdal Chronicles”), Lee Ji-eun or IU (“Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo” and “Hotel del Luna”), Kim Hyun-joo (“What’s With This Family” and “I Have a Lover”), Park Min-young (“Healer” and “What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim”), Song Ji-hyo (“Princess Hours” and “Emergency Couple”), Song Hye-kyo (“Full House” and “Descendants of the Sun”), Ku Hye-sun (“Boys Over Flowers” and “Angel Eyes”), Son Ye-jin (“Something in the Rain” and “Crash Landing on You”), Kim Go-eun (“Guardian: The Lonely and Great God” and “The King: Eternal Monarch”), and Seo Ye-ji (“Lawless Lawyer” and “It’s Okay to Not be Okay”)
The next phase of the campaign invited fans to vote for the Top 10 nominees from September 11 to September 29 via an online poll system. After more than two weeks of voting, Seo Ye-ii emerged as the winner with 43.44 percent of the total number of votes, which is equivalent to 1,249,630 votes. Closely following her was Son Ye-jin with 36.52 percent or 1,050,440 votes.
Completing the final ranking are Kim Go-eun with 7.87 percent (226,528), Song Ji-hyo with 4.80 percent (137,962), Kim Hyun-joo with 3.66 percent (105,304), Song Hye-kyo with 1.06 percent (30,400), Ku Hye-sun
