How Kim Soo-Hyun And Lee Min-Ho Attracted China
[by Choi Kwangje] The popularity of the Korean wave in China is alarming. South Korean songs, dramas, and entertainment shows are extremely popular in China.
Of those, dramas ‘My Love from the Star’ and ‘The Heirs’ may be called the center of the Korean wave. About nine months have passed after the two dramas ended, but still, they are loved by many people. The actors for the main characters, Lee Min-ho and Kim Soo-hyun, are also very well-liked.
Then, why are they so renowned in China?
The first secret for success of Lee Min-ho and Kim Soo-hyun is ‘effort.’ They did not succeed with only luck. Rather, they have built their career starting from a young age.
Lee Min-ho, who debuted in 2006 through EBS teen series ‘Secret Garden,’ firmly let himself be known through KBS2 drama ‘Boys over Flowers’ to all of Asia. After that, he expanded his base inside China through SBS dramas ‘City Hunter’ and ‘Faith,’ and in 2013, he succeeded in becoming a top star in China through SBS drama ‘The Heirs’.
This is a similar case to Kim Soo-hyun’s. Kim Soo-hyun learned the basics of acting through sitcoms as a child actor and became well-known through KBS2 drama ‘Dream High’ to youngsters and through MBC drama ‘Moon Embracing the Sun’ to elder generations to finally enter stardom.
In 2014, Kim Soo-hyun came to appear in a drama, which is to be recorded as the most important one in his whole career, and that’s ‘My Love from the Star.’ His popularity is so overwhelming that the elements in the drama such as ‘Professor Doh’ and ‘chicken and beer’ have social effects in China.
The fact that they both appeared in dramas contributed to their success to a great extent. A drama has a longer total running hour than that of a movie, which is only around two hours, so you come to watch a drama for a long period of time. Hence, it was easier for them to increase their charm and awareness as actors. Both actors have not taken a long break since their debut allowing them to become familiar to overseas fans more readily.
In addition, the great looks of Lee Min-ho and Kim Soo-hyun played a huge role in raising their popularity. Lee Min-ho, 187 cm tall, boasts an excellent body with the nickname ‘long legs.’ Also, his attraction is amplified by his gentle image shown in dramas where he mainly acted as a young gentleman.
On the other hand, Kim Soo-hyun revealed diverse appeals in various roles. He played the roles of a thief, spy, high school student, king, and alien. Every time, he successfully tempted female viewers with his ever-greater appearance.
Of course, several elements make them look outstanding, but a top element may be their smooth skin. Both men and women are interested in how Lee Min-ho and Kim Soo-hyun take care of their soft and moist skin.
It is good to always supply moisture to your skin to have a beautiful complexion as that of Lee Min-ho and Kim Soo-hyun. In particular, entertainers on a busy schedule are known to use facial sheets while they are waiting or traveling by car or plane.
Facial sheets are very popular for its low cost and high effect. Recently, two-step mask packs containing an ampoule and a facial sheet separated from each other are being released.
Hongik Skin’s ‘Naexy 2Step Mask’ supplies moisture to the skin and forms a film to protect the moisture in the skin. Thereby, it prevents wrinkles for everyone in all ages to use it. Also, there are 10 sorts of the mask including masks for whitening, pore control, and masks for dealing with troubles and dead skin cells. Therefore, it has another great merit that you can choose a mask pack for your own purpose.
As stated above, Lee Min-ho and Kim Soo-hyun rose as stars in Asia with diverse charms including acting skills, looks, and skin. They are expected to show even more great activities from now on, considering what they have displayed so far.
