[news] Actor Lee Jun-ki voted top Hallyu star in China

Korean actor Lee Jun-ki has been voted the top Hallyu star in China, according to his agency on Friday.

The actor came in first, beating Rain and actress Song Hye-kyo, in the "2009 Most Popular Korean Star" survey held by CRI Online, a major portal in China, Mentor Entertainment said in a press release.

Lee is also receiving attention in Taiwan with more than 80 media companies on Wednesday attending Lee's press conference for a fan concert set for tomorrow. His Taiwan concert was delayed indefinitely last year due to a typhoon.

"The foundation of Lee's popularity in the Chinese market is more solid than any other Hallyu star syndrome," an official working at a Taiwanese broadcaster was quoted as saying. "I don't think his popularity will decline anytime soon."

The 27-year-old actor rose to stardom playing a woman-like male clown in the 2005 hit film "The King and the Clown".

He is set to appear in the MBC drama, tentatively titled "Hero", which will air in Korea in November.
