Song Kang-ho voted 2013’s top movie starActor Song Kang-ho has been chosen as the actor who shined the most this year, according to Gallup Korea yesterday.
The company has been conducting surveys since 2005 to discover the annual "Movie Stars Who Shined.” For 2013’s poll, Gallup asked over 1,700 people to choose their favorite actor, and Song received 22.5 percent of the vote.
Song gathered a record audience of over 18 million with his movies “Snowpiercer” and “Face Reader” this year, which explains why people chose him for the Gallup Korea top spot.
Actor Ha Jung-woo of “The Berlin File” and “The Terror Live” garnered 18.9 percent of the votes to arrive in the second place, while actor Lee Byung-hun received 18 percent to come in third through his appearances in the Hollywood movies “GI Joe 2” and “Red 2.”
Ryu Seung-ryong of “Miracle in Cell No. 7” and Seol Kyung-gu of “Tower” came in the fourth and fifth, respectively.
