Korea's Greatest Acting Beauty

Choi Ji-woo Named Korea's Greatest Acting Beauty

Top star Choi Ji-woo has been selected by 100 movie industry insiders as the country’s most beautiful actress in the 2006 Timeless Beauty Awards sponsored by cosmetics maker Christian Dior. The awards, which were based on surveys of 100 movie industry insiders, seek to raise the status of Korean actresses and encourage their passion for the craft.

Also honored at the first awards were Um Jung-hwa, Kang Sung-yeon, Choi Kang-hee and Shin Mi-na. Meanwhile, Monica Bellucci was selected as the timeless beauty representing Dior's new rouge this September.

Note: For those who don't know or remember who she is, Choi Ji Woo starred in popular K-dramas such as Winter Sonata, Beautiful Days, and Stairway to Heaven. She also acted in several movies, but I'm not sure of their titles.

doozy: Choi Ji Woo = Korea's Greatest Acting Beauty? The queen of melodrama? Really?! Oh, come on, people! There are plenty of better candidates out there. What about, say, Lee Young Ae or Son Ye Jin? Is this because Choi Ji Woo is now a spokesperson for one of Christian Dior's products? *scratch head*
