The most wanted celebrities by advertisers for the first half of 2009 have just been revealed. The results are according to a recent survey by the Korea Broadcast Advertising Corporation.
The top female celebrity was Korean figure skating champion and 2010 Olympic Gold Medal contender Kim Yu Na. Yu Na has been the Nation’s sweetheart ever since winning the World Championship in record setting style. Other top female celebrities included Kim Tae Hee, Jeon Ji Hyun, Lee Hyori, Kim Nam Joo, Han Ga In, and Lee Young Ae.
The top male celebrity is a surprise, it’s Speedy Scandal’s Cha Tae Hyun. Oppa, say what? Although Tae Hyun is hilarious and a great actor, I can’t believe he beat out top competitors like Rain, Jang Dong Gun, Park Ji Sung, Lee Min Ho, and Lee Seung Gi.
So what do you think? Would you give up your hard earned cash for something that Yu Na or Tae Hyun sold you? Or are advertisers chasing after the wrong celebrities?
