Byeon Woo Seok, Chun Woo Hee, Kim Hye Yoon top Drama Actors Brand Reputation Rankings

June’s Drama Actors Brand Reputation Rankings are out via the Korean Business Research Institute.

As you might expect, star of Lovely Runner, Byeon Woo Seok, is in the #1 spot just like he was earlier in the month on GoodData’s K-Drama Actor rankings.

The rankings also have Chun Woo Hee, who starred in the just ended The Atypical Family and in the Netflix drama The 8 Show, at #2 and with Byeon Woo Seok’s co-star Kim Hye Yoon at #3.

As usual, the ratings were calculated after looking at data from news coverage, social media mentions, and other media that show the popularity of specific actors.

The two other actors in the Top 5 were Song Geon Hee, who also co-starred in Lovely Runner — so, yes, the Korean drama pretty much swept the chart — and with Jung Ryeo Won, who is currently starring in The Midnight Romance in Hagwon, at #5.

Filling out the Top 10, we have Kim Hee Sun (Bitter Sweet Hell) at #6, Wi Ha Joon (The Midnight Romance in Hagwon) at #7, Jang Ki Yong (The Atypical Family) at #8, Ji Sung (Connection) at #9, and Lee Hye Young (Bitter Sweet Hell).

As usual, being named in the Top 50 Drama Actors Brand Reputation Rankings opens up new opportunities for many of the actors named on it.

So, congratulations, eh?

As for the Top 3, you can watch both Byeon Woo Seok and Kim Hye Yoon in Lovely Runner on Viki, while Chun Woo Hee is starring in both The Atypical Family and The 8 Show on Netflix.
