Happy White Day, Soompiers! Celebrities Celebrate White Day
What is “White Day,” you ask? It is a day where guys give girls white gifts (candies, chocolates or jewelry) and it’s celebrated in Asian countries like China, Japan, South Korea and Taiwan on March 14- although, there are slight variations in each country.
In South Korea, it’s mostly celebrated between lovers and some men will have a social obligation of gifting ladies with white gifts if he received a chocolate on Valentine’s Day. Many elementary students gift the whole class with candies while secondary school boys use this day as a great opportunity to confess to their crush.
A survey was conducted by a dental clinic in Gangnam asking 337 females in their teens and twenties who they would like to receive a candy from and Lee Seung Gi came out on top with 142 votes. Beast’s Lee Ki Kwang placed second with 97 votes and Kim Soo Hyun rounded out in third with 94 votes.
The person conducting the survey commented, “It’s because of his beautiful smile that gives off a friendly vibe. There is no female who would deny a White Day candy from a man with a beautiful smile.” (author’s note: this is from a dental clinic. Of course they would talk about smiles.)
Here are a few celebrities who have celebrated White Day in their own special way.
