Congratulations to “The Heirs” couple Lee Min Ho and Park Shin Hye!
The actors prevailed over the idols! It was a close vote for both of the first place matches, the numbers of votes often coming to a near 50/50 split! In fact, both matches ended with really similar results! Check out the final round here for more details: Soompi Ideal Type World Cup: FINAL ROUND
Is it a coincidence that these two co-starred and romanced it up in the hugely popular drama “The Heirs”? Probably not. But it’s good to see them together again, loosely speaking. Congrats to the couple and all the MinShin fans out there!
Coming into a close second place were EXO‘s Luhan and miss A‘s Suzy.
They didn’t win, but hey, second is pretty impressive, too! Just look at the list of celebrities they knocked out. And they definitely gave Lee Min Ho and Park Shin Hye a run for their money.
You also voted last round for third place overall, which went to EXO Kai and Girls’ Generation YoonA.
In this case, the idols took the win, knocking out the multi-talented entertainer Lee Seung Gi and “Running Man ace” Song Ji Hyo for third place overall. The match between Kai and Lee Seung Gi was really close, the winner unpredictable at any given moment during the voting, much like the matches for first place. On the other hand, however, YoonA’s victory was a complete runaway, there being no doubt from the very beginning that she was going to take the third place spot.

The moment of truth is upon us! Two guys and two girls have made it thus far, but there is only room for one winner. Are your favorites still in the game?
The beginning of the last round seemed like a free-for-all, as several of the matches were split more or less evenly between the opponents, with the lead position moving back and forth. However, towards the end, in each of the matches, there was one that pulled out front, leaving the other behind to sure defeat. The closest match was the one between Park Shin Hye and Song Ji Hyo, Park Shin Hye making a comeback late in the game and defeating Song Ji Hyo by almost 7%. In the end, miss A Suzy, EXO Luhan, and “The Heirs” couple Park Shin Hye and Lee Min Ho were the only ones left standing. Check out the semifinal round here for more details: Soompi Ideal Type World Cup: Semifinals
Now, for the first time in this ideal type world cup, we have idols vs. actors:
miss A Suzy vs. Park Shin Hye
While Song Ji Hyo, EXO Kai, and the YoonA-Lee Seung Gi couple were knocked out, it’s not over! Third place overall still has to be settled! The matches will be:
Girls’ Generation YoonA vs. Song Ji Hyo
Last round you voted for the third place female idol, female actress, male idol, and male actress. Go to the next page to see the individual division rankings:
Welcome back! The time is drawing near… we are now down to four guys and four girls! Who are the celebrities that you’ve picked as your ideal types so far?
With the exception of the 2PM Nichkhun vs. EXO Luhan match, which ended with just a 9% difference in favor of Luhan, most of the matches in the quarterfinals round were more or less runaways. The results probably won’t surprise many, even those who weren’t following the matches every hour on the hour! Both members of the elite YoonA and Lee Seung Gi couple have made it through, as well as the equally popular Suzy, Lee Min Ho, Park Shin Hye, and Song Ji Hyo. There’s also some good representation from the boys of EXO, with not only Luhan but also group mate Kai! All well-known for their beauty and talent, and we can definitely see why you’d want to date them.

Half of the contestants have been knocked out, and we are down to 8 girls and 8 guys! Check out the Round of 16 here for more details on who knocked who out and by how much: Soompi Ideal Type World Cup: Round of 16
As was expected, the Round of 16 was a tough battle. There were some runaways in which the winner was pretty clear from the start, and there were others that were neck and neck all the way to the end, some by less than one percent! A lot of the matches that had us on the edges of our seats were the guys! Kim Woo Bin vs. Song Joong Ki, Kim Soo Hyun vs. Choi Jin Hyuk, EXO Tao vs. 2PM Nichkhun, and EXO Kai vs. GOT7 Jackson. Did your favorites make the cut?
This next round is going to be even tougher. We’ve got some crazy matchups for the girls and guys:
“Dream High” actresses Suzy vs. IU,
Girls’ Generation members Taeyeon vs. YoonA,
Goo Hye Sun vs. Park Shin Hye,
“Running Man“ Song Ji Hyo vs. “Man from the Stars“ Jun Ji Hyun,

Welcome back to round two of the Soompi Ideal Type World Cup! With your votes, we have ruthlessly kicked out four from each group of six, bringing us from 48 girls and 48 guys to just 16 each (16 idols, 16 actors)! Check out the first round here for details on who won and by how much: Soompi Ideal Type World Cup: Group Stage
A lot went down in the first round. Some of the results were entirely expected, while still many favorites were without a doubt knocked out, some by just a hair. SISTAR’s Bora made a valiant comeback in the end against 2NE1’s Dara, who had been ahead for a good portion of the voting. TVXQ’s Changmin and GOT7’s Jackson also advanced, knocking out INFINITE’s L, CNBLUE’s Yonghwa, and BIGBANG’s G-Dragon. Also of note is the advancement of both Lee Seung Gi and Choi Jin Hyuk from the same group, Little Gu and Papa Gu from the drama “Gu Family Book.”
The top two in each of the idol groups, both male and female, were pretty clear cut, while in the groups for the actors and actresses, the spot for second was a tight race, the difference for many being just 1%, and the voting is only going to get tougher.
So what’s next? Single round elimination. The matchups for this round are intense! We have Suzy vs. Hyorin, Jun Ji Hyun vs. Kim Tae Hee, Kai vs. Jackson, Kim Woo Bin vs. Song Joong Ki, and more!

Thanks to the 2014 Brazil World Cup, soccer fever is running through everyone’s veins right now! Some K-Pop fans might be disappointed with Korea’s recent loss during the group stage, while others continue to support their countries’ soccer teams. In any case, we thought we’d provide a fun diversion with our favorite celebrities. Variety show fans might be familiar with a game called “Ideal Type World Cup,” in which the guest chooses the celebrity archetype they would most like to date, based on a series of choices which are presented tournament-style. (Lee Min Ho or Kim Woo Bin? YoonA or Suzy?)
Now we’re turning the tables and asking you, our reader! Which K-Pop idol or K-Drama actor would YOU most like to date? In our Soompi Ideal Type World Cup, we have two separate tournaments: male and female. For each gender, we have chosen 48 initial “players”: 24 actors and 24 singers/idols. The actors and singers were then divided into four groups of six.
This first round will be a group stage, in which only two players from each grouping of six will advance, leaving us with 16 guys and 16 girls (eight actors, eight singers), from where we will advance with a single round elimination tournament for each gender. You can vote once per device for each group. Voting will end on Tuesday, June 24 (KST).
Without further ado, let’s vote! We’ll start with female singers/idols. Which Korean celebrity is closest to your ideal type?
KBS drama “Bridal Mask” star Joo Won prefers “Bridal Mask” love interest Jin Se Yeon over “Ojakgyo Brothers” love interest Uee.
On September 21, “Bridal Mask” star Joo Won sat down for an interview with newspaper “Ilgan Sports” and talked about various subjects such as hallyu stars avoiding “Bridal Mask” for fear of backlash in Japan, performing his own action scenes, feelings for co-stars, and who he would choose in ideal type world cup.
On hallyu stars avoiding “Bridal Mask,” Joo Won: “I think at the time I thought very simply. It was a situation in which the script had only been written to episode 4, and so, first, I thought it will be fun. Also, under the circumstances, there were a lot of people who made favorable comments about the original manhwa [the drama was adapted from the manhwa], and so I really wanted to do it. Actually, I found out later that hallyu stars were avoiding the drama because of their activities in Japan. But, it didn’t occur to me to think that far.”
On his own action scenes, Joo Won: “As the shooting progressed, the gravity or seriousness of the action scenes I had to kept growing. As I am a person who likes to exercise and I had done some action scenes as a sort of hobby, in the moment, I think the martial arts director looked at me kindly. Honestly, I was afraid of wearing the wires at first. Though on my own I was afraid, during the beginning of the shooting, because Jin Se Yeon flew with the wires on so easily without fear, I was a bit embarrassed and worked harder. [laughs]”
On feelings when acting with female co-stars, Joo Won: “I have had feelings. If I say I didn’t, that’s what would be weird. But, instead, I think that it is an actor’s ability to be able to understand the true nature of those feelings and exercise restraint and control.”
On who he would choose in ideal type world cup between Uee and Jin Se Yeon, Joo Won: “If I must pick one person of the two, I would pick Jin Se Yeon. Even though Uee is extremely bright and pretty, Jin Se Yeon’s bright side is magnified. I have never even once seen Jin Se Yeon with a frown on her face on the filming set. She’s the kind of girl who is always laughing and spreads “happy virus” to others around her. I always thought I like a bear better than a fox, and Jin Se Yeon is that kind of a person. Jin Se Yeon is also not the type to play push-and-pull game. If she likes someone, she will always do well for that person. But, if I call Jin Se Yeon a bear will she feel bad? [laughs]”
