A study released on May 16th revealed that Korean youngsters see Yoo Jae Suk as their number one role model.
The entertainer who has come to earn the title “Nation’s MC” is not unfamiliar with such praise, receiving love from supporters of all age groups. Through a recent poll conducted in celebration of Coming-of-Age Day, 1197 people who will turn 20 this year voted on their role models of this generation.
Of these respondents, 40.1% selected Yoo Jae Suk as their top choice. Ice skating queen Kim Yuna came in second place with 27.6%. Daum Kakao Chairman Kim Bum Soo took third (8.4%) with entertainer Kim Je Dong at 4.8% and writer/relief worker Han Biya at 4.2%.
In terms of characteristics, values such as being responsible, being earnest, and having consideration for others were most highly ranked respectively. On the other hand, qualities including lacking respect for young people and being egotistic were strongly disliked.
