South Korea's beauty has made its mark in the isolated communist regime of North Korea. However, it has not always been seen in the most positive light. Kim Tae Hee, currently starring in Jang Ok Jung, Live in Love, has been revealed to be strongly disliked in North Korea. North Korean refugees, who are the source of this intelligence, sold Korean drama CDs for a living that mostly consisted of popular dramas such as Stairway to Heaven, Autumn in My Heart and Winter Sonata.  It was disclosed that Kim Tae Hee's role in the 2003 drama Stairway to Heaven affected the North Koreans' impression of South Korea's beloved actress.

Just a while ago, it was revealed that the nation's sweetheart IU captured the heart of viewers in North Korea through her role in You're the Best, Lee Soon Shin. Who would you pick in the battle of popularity: IU vs Kim Tae Hee, or rather Lee Soon Shin vs Yoori?
