Korean Stars that have the Greatest Pulling Power (Top 10) 2012
Question: "If the actor is starring in the movie, I want to see it at the theater" / "Which actor guarantees your ticket purchase?"
1. Ha Jung-woo 12.4% (2530)2. Song Kang-ho 8.4% (1705)3. Ha Ji-won 5.5% (1122)4. Park Hae-il 5.5% (1111)5. Won Bin 5.1% (1034) (at #2 last year)6. Choi Min-sik 4.1% (825)7. Kim Yoon-seok 3.9% (792)8. Ahn Sung-ki 3.7% (748)9. Lee Byung-hun 2.6% (539)10. Lee Sun-kyun 2.5% (517)
Hwang Jung-min, Jo In-seong, Sol Kyung-gu, Son Ye-jin and Jung Jae-yeong who were in the top 10 last year fell out of the top 10 this year. While Park Hae-il, Choi Min-sik, Ahn Sung-ki, Lee Byung-hun and Lee Sun-kyun entered the top 10 this year. Ha Ji-won is the only actress in the top 10.
A mixed feeling of bittersweet on two handsome actors. Won Bin, who hasn't appeared in any movie in past one year, took the no. 5 spot. On the other hand, Jo In-seong, who hasn't appeared in any movie after military service, dropped 22 spots from 5th to 27th in the list.

Won Bin can be found in A Gentleman's Dignity
[28/06/2012] Of course it's not the flesh of Won Bin who appears in the drama, only his real name.
Won Bin's real name, Kim Do Jin, coincidentally is the name of Jang Dong Gun's character in A Gentleman's Dignity. If we look back to the drama's writer, writer Kim Eun Sook, soon we realize that writer Kim Eun Suk is also famous because she likes to use her friends or other real people name for her drama. She had used the name of the director of her production company for her drama's character, as well as her fellow colleague-writer's name. So, people think that using Kim Do Jin name is not an coincident.
During A Gentleman's Dignity's press conference, writer Kim Eun Sook already got question whether Kim Do Jin is borrowed from Won Bin's real name, and the writer answered, "Absolutely not. It didn't have any special meaning".
But people keep speculated that writer Kim Eun Sook already planned to cast Jang Dong Gun for her drama because she mentioned that superstar's name in her previous drama On Air (2008). In a scene of On Air , Seo Young Eun's mother (played by Song Yun Ah) told her daughter which is a writer, "So, does Jang Dong Gun work for your drama?"
About that, writer Kim Eun Sook answered honestly, "In the On Air's dialogue, Jang Dong Gun's name was mentioned. Now, he's playing my drama, so my wish is fulfilled".
So, as she's using Won Bin's name for her drama, is it a hint that she wants Won Bin to play her upcoming drama? Hopefully yes!
And we will thank her so much if she can persuade Won Bin to return to the small screen! She did that impossible task with Jang Dong Gun, we believe she would make it too with Won Bin.
