Popular actress Gong Hyo Jin has successfully been paired with many handsome leading men in lovely romances. There is now a new group of hot young guys known as the 4 New Kings of Hallyu: Kim Soo Hyun, Lee Min Ho, Kim Woo Bin, and Lee Jong Suk. Which one would our Queen of Romance pick as her new king? She candidly answered the question in a recent interview.

Let's review the Kings Row as listed in the Queen's secret notebook:

(Fans, don't worry about the sequence. It's not in any significant order.)

1. Kim Soo Hyun - He has really played a King in the Moon That Embraces The Sun, and captured the heart of not jut Jeon Ji Hyun but many others on Earth when he became an alien from outer space in My Love From Another Star.

2. Lee Min Ho - Ever since he rose to fame with Boys Over Flowers, he has been causing traffic jams anywhere he goes in Asia. Is there any wonder that he is listed as one of the 4 Kings? 

3. Lee Jong Suk - He wowed the audience in his breakout performance in I Hear Your Voic and followed up with the stellar Doctor Stranger. He continues to impress us and Park Shin Hye in Pinocchio.


4. Kim Woo Bin - Hot, hot, hot! We know he's hot in drama and in life because anytime he is on, hearts flutter! It's too bad he didn't win the girl in Heirs, but he has established himself firmly as a new king ready for romance.

In an exclusive interview with Hong Kong's Apple Daily, Gong Hyo Jin was asked about her choice among the 4 New Kings.

Here's her anwer:

Gong Hyo Jin said she wants to star with Lee Min Ho because he is so beautiful looking. However, she would want to star with him with both playing strong and tough characters.

There you have it. Minoz fans, rejoice! However, fans of Kim Soo Hyun, Lee Jong Suk and Kim Wo Bin, don't be upset. She was only answering a question to pick her next leading man out of the 4 hot new kings. If the question was about whether she wanted to work with all of the 4 new kings, our queen of romance would have definitely answered: Yes!

So what do you think? Do you agree with her answer?
