Oops! The Asian Forbes Magazine messed up big time! In the April issue they had an article introducing Korean celebrities in their “2011 Korean Star Power Ranking.” But they mixed up the picture for Kang Ho Dong with Rain!
The ranking for this article was created by looking at TV ads, Internet Searches, and related profitability. The list is comprised of forty stars.
Korean news media sources consider this mistake as an indication that the celebrities leading the Korean wave aren’t actually well-known as many would suppose. This idea has much merit, but a mistake is a mistake.
