Which K-Drama Was Voted No.1 Drama by Overseas Fans?
Arirang TV’s Showbiz Korea recently conducted a survey among some 2,024 overseas fans polling them on their favorite Korean drama and revealed its results.
The results, revealed on March 12, showed Boys Over Flowers came in at second place with 13.1 percent of the total results, followed by You’re Beautiful at 11.1 percent, Coffee Prince at 7.4 percent, Full House, 6 percent and Sungkyunkwan Scandal rounded out the top six at 5.8 percent.
Which Korean drama was voted as number one you ask? None other than the much beloved Secret Garden which garnered 16.1 percent of the total votes.
In addition to claiming the title of favorite Korean drama, the fictional male and female characters of Secret Garden, Joo Won (played by Hyun Bin) and Kim Ra Im (played by Ha Ji Won) also took the top spot in two other polls. Joo Won emerged the winner for the poll asking which fictional male lead would fans want as a boyfriend, while the character of Kim Ra Im also landed on top, in the poll asking which fictional female lead would fans want to be reborn as.
The polls also drew attention for the lesser-than-anticipated showing of other mega-hit hallyu dramas such as Jewel in the Palace and Winter Sonata.
Did the poll results get it right? Which Korean drama do you guys feel is best?
