FINAL UPDATE! See Who Won In Metro.Style's Most Beautiful Korean Actresses Poll

We tallied your votes. Now it's time to reveal the winner

Lifestyle website Metro.Style has been riding the Korean Wave since this phenomenon experienced a new surge in popularity in recent months. It has become a go-to source for K-Drama and K-Pop content, and even scored exclusive features with K-Pop girl group Momoland and Crash Landing on You superstar Hyun Bin.

Bringing the #KFeverOnMetro campaign to the next level, Metro.Style launched a “Most Beautiful Korean Actresses” poll to give tribute to these stars, who have kept many Filipinos company through binge-watching their K-Dramas during the pandemic.

The campaign was launched last August 26, and fans were asked to nominate the Korean actresses they find to be deserving to be called “most beautiful.” The nomination period began on August 28 and lasted until September 9, followed by the announcement of the Top 10 nominees on September 11.

The nominees are Kim Ji-won (Fight for My Way and Arthdal Chronicles), Lee Ji-eun or IU (Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo and Hotel del Luna), Kim Hyun-joo (What’s With This Family and I Have a Lover), Park Min-young (Healer and What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim), Song Ji-hyo (Princess Hours and Emergency Couple), Song Hye-kyo (Full House and Descendants of the Sun), Ku Hye-sun (Boys Over Flowers and Angel Eyes), Son Ye-jin (Something in the Rain and Crash Landing on You), Kim Go-eun (Guardian: The Lonely and Great God and The King: Eternal Monarch), and Seo Ye-ji (Lawless Lawyer and It’s Okay to Not be Okay).


The next phase of the campaign invited fans to vote for the Top 10 nominees from September 11 to September 29 via an online poll system. After more than two weeks of voting, SEO YE-JI emerges as the winner with 43.44% of the total number of votes, which is equivalent to 1,249,630 votes. Closely following her was SON YE-JIN with 36.52% or 1,050,440 votes.

Completing the final ranking are:

KIM GO-EUN with 7.87% (226,528)

SONG JI-HYO with 4.80% (137,962)

KIM HYUN-JOO with 3.66% (105,304)

SONG HYE-KYO with 1.06% (30,400)

KU HYE-SUN with 0.92% (26,492)

PARK MIN-YOUNG with 0.60% (17,356)

KIM JI-WON with 0.59% (17,030)

LEE JI-EUN (IU) with 0.54% (15,596)


The total number of votes garnered throughout the voting period is 2,876,738.
