Your Boyfriends: So Ji Sub and Yoo Seung Ho

"Your Boyfriends" entries will feature stories of your Korean boyfriends. hahahahaha. I will try to introduce Korea's popular and good-looking actors, singers and boy groups since Korea owe a lot from them. A big chunk of foreigners in Korea came here because of "their boyfriends" promoting Korea as the hub for popular culture not just in Asia but to the world! hehe So our first entry would be tadaaaa So Ji Sub and Yoo Seung Ho

So Ji Sub
He is considered as one of the biggest stars in Korea. I personally think his counterparts are actors like Lee Byunghoon and Won Bin to mention a few. I'm not sure maybe many people would agree or disagree with me but I'm basing my arguments through So Ji Sub's blockbuster movies and the number of commercials we always see on TV. His very manly image makes him very attractive to ajummas, well this is according to my Korean teacher who really likes him. I remember one time in our class she blushed a lot when we ask her who her favorite actor was. Then my ajumma classmates also giggled and seems like they were fangirling. hehehe. I heard So Ji Sub is also very popular in Japan where he also had and still having a lot of projects.

Yoo Seung Ho

I'm quite sure Yoo Seung Ho has millions of fans out there. I first saw him in a commercial, I think it was a frozen yogurt, where he looks at the camera and tries to feed the viewers with the yogurt while saying ahh!. It became very iconic in Korea. Korean guys who wanna look cute in front of their girlfriends also do it a lot. I guess many of you are familiar with the aegyeo culture here. He became the ideal boyfriend type of girls who like boys younger than them. Anyway, the main reason why I put his story beside So Ji Sub is that Korean media dubbed him as "little So Ji Sub" because of his resemblance to him. They even made a lot of projects like commercials together.

I will only give short introductions since most the stories about them are already written on different websites.

Wiki Pages:
