IU Chosen as No.1 Self-radiating Star ★


 With the upcoming domestic theatrical release of a new disaster film, “Vanishing On 7th Street” (2010) following “The Happening” (2008) and “2012” (2009), an interesting survey regarding these films was conducted. The conducted survey was in relation to the movie’s concept of ‘the darkness taking over the world” and ‘one can only survive by finding light in the dark.” The survey asked, “Which star has skin that would self-radiate in the dark?“. Singer IU, ultra-popular for her charming looks and amazing “Three Octave Booster,’ won by a landslide by sweeping 62% of the votes.  

Netizens expressed various reactions about the survey results. As reflected in these comments online, “IU is the hot-trend these days, can’t beat youth, haha,” “the hot-trend is milky white IU!”, “IU would likely survive even if all the light from the world vanished!” perhaps it’s almost a natural outcome that 19 year old IU won No.1, for her young age would simply enable her to self-radiate.  

 Actress Lee Min Jung from “Midas,” who once had been praised for her radiating “Honey Skin,” received second place with 19% of the votes, while “Baby Face” Shin Min Ah won third place with 17% of the votes.
