Won Bin Chosen as the Star Who Would Most Likely be a Sucker for his Daughter


“Little Fockers,” the third in the “Meet the Parents” series, is awaiting a March 31st theatrical release in Korea. With the release around the corner, a portal site decided to conduct a poll as to which star would fit the ttal-ba-bo (a Korean term for a father who is a sucker for his daughter) category best. A father who is a ttal-ba-bo is very much like “Meet the Parent’s” Jack Byrnes (Robert De Niro); he cares much for his daughter’s happiness and will probably do anything to ensure it. National ahjusshi (Korean for mister/middle-aged man) Won Bin of “The Man from Nowhere” (2010) came in first as the star would most likely be a sucker for his daughter with 56% of the votes. Last year, Won Bin stirred the public’s interest when he took care of his young co-actress Kim Sae Ron like a daughter.

 Soccer player Cha Du Ri came in second. His selca with his daughter Ah In had drawn a lot of attention. Song Seung Heon came in third; he too garnered much interest for a picture he took with child actress Jeon Min Suh, who acted as the young Lee Seul in “My Princess” (2011). Fourth place went to Bang Shi Hyuk who currently appears as a judge on MBC’s “The Birth of a Great Star.” While he spat out harsh remarks to participants, he showed a fatherly smile to eleven year old participant Kim Jung In cementing the saying that fathers are weak towards their daughters.
