Based on a survey participated by thousands of American K-drama viewers, Lee Min Ho and Park Shin Hye have emerged to be the most popular Korean stars. Who else are in the Top 10 favorite actors and actresses? And, which K-dramas are the most popular among American fans? 

The Korea Creative Content Agency conducted a study via online K-drama streaming sites over a two-week period that was participated by 4,753 viewers located in the United States. The most popular Korean actors, actresses, and dramas were reported based on the survey results.

In the male category, Lee Min Ho is chosen as the most popular actor, followed by Lee Joon KiLee Jong SukSong Joong Ki, and Ji Chang Wook.

Park Shin Hye is named the most popular actress, followed by Gong Hyo JinLee Ji Eun (IU)Song Hye Gyo, and Hwang Jung Eum.

Descendants of the Sun, starring Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Gyo, is picked as the most favorite K-drama for American fans, leading over other popular dramas, Scarlet Heart: Ryeo, W, Cinderella and Four Knights, and Oh My Venus.

The results would appear consistent with DramaFever's own Top 10 rankings. Lee Min Ho rose to stellar fame in Boys Over Flowers, which is still popular in the most recent Weekly Top 10 Asian DramasHeirs, with Lee Min Ho and Park Shin Hye as the leading couple, consistently showed up in the Top 10 list for 3 years and is still among the twenty most popular dramas in current rankings. Park Shin Hye's latest drama, Doctor Crush, also rose to be a top hit on DramaFever.

It should be noted that these top Korean stars and dramas have fans all around the world. This survey was focused on US-based K-drama fans as it was conducted by the US branch of the Korea Creative Content Agency.

Another interesting observation is that 73.5% of the viewers are from the teen to 30-something age group, according to the survey results.
