It’s the quintessential holiday poll. Who would you want to spend (insert holiday here) with? Who would you want to take home to show your parents? With it being Chuseok, one of Korea’s biggest holidays of the year, the time has come again.

Korean lock screen app Cash Slide recently conducted a poll with 1,057 of its users ranging from ages 20 to 40, asking them which celebrities they would most want to bring home and introduce to their parents as a potential son-in-law or daughter-in-law, respectively. Of course the likelihood of this ever happening is slim to none, but, for fun.

First, here are the top 10 female stars.

10. Jun Ji Hyun (2.3 percent)

By voter age groups, the top voted female celebrities were as follows:

20s – IU (15.5 percent)

30s – Seolhyun (6.2)

40s – Kim Tae Hee (15.1)

And now for the guys! Also just as unlikely to ever cross the threshold of the voters’ homes, but that’s beside the point.
