Lee Min Ho squeaks out victory in the 2015 Top 10 Asian male god competition against Kim Soo Hyun, Ji Chang Wook, and more
We've heard the term Nanshen (male god), but who really qualifies to be a male god? The 2015 Asian Nanshen (male gods) competition just announced the results on April 5. After 140 candidates in 5 rounds of voting with millions of voters, Hallyu star Lee Min Ho emerged the winner, edging out the #2 male god by only about 300 votes. The new Top 10 Asian male gods contain quite a few surprises. Find out where Kim Soo Hyun, Ji Chang Wook, and others are placed.
First all, according to the competition, a Nanshen must possess the following qualities and features:
1. A fascinating and perfect face.
2. An enviable physique.
3. A warm and loving heart.
4. An outstanding talent that captivates the fans.
5. An inherent temperament befitting a male god.
Do you think our Top 10, especially the #1 winner, possess the perfect marks for these requirements?

As you see, the votes were really pretty tight. Lee Min Ho only edged out #2 Wallace Chung by about 300 votes. This is the second year for the competition, and Lee Min Ho won the first one too. Will he win again next year?
I was very pleasantly surprised to find Ji Chang Wook on the list. His stellar performance in Empress Ki and Healer has propelled his fame tremendously. On the other hand, it's also surprising to find Kim Soo Hyun at #5.
