For most celebrities in the world of K-entertainment, it is pretty much a given that they will be asked the routine ideal type question at least once in their career. Variety show MCs and radio hosts love to inquire celebrities as to what kind of invigorating person of the opposite sex they gravitate towards and fans are ravenous for the answer.
Why is this question so popular among hosts and fans in the first place? Possibly because, if the interviewee happens to respond with a list of physical appearance and/or personality criteria that even just marginally matches a fans self-description, this fan might begin to hold a faint glimmer of hope that they and their bias might actually be soulmates who are only missing that one incidental meeting, perhaps a chance encounter at a dinner with a mutual friend that develops their relationship into a quirky friendship that was actually true love all along. Sound too much like the plot of Silver Linings Playbook? That’s the beauty of a fantasy; it doesn’t have to be realistic (or original, for that matter).
