When I read about the Watsons YOU Awards, I drew up a hypothetical list of Hallyu stars whom I would nominate for the awards. Did you manage to guess them all? ;)
Not only does this Boys Over Flowers heart-throb have acting chops, he also has a taut and toned body to complement his sculpted face.
Flawless Face: Han Ji Hye
A lashing of eyeliner gives fresh-faced Han Ji Hye edgy chic and a sense of je ne sais quoi. This Likeable or Not lead shows us how makeup can change a person’s appearance. I love how her monolids wear the smokey eye!
To get her sexy eye look, try Revlon Luxurious Color Eyeliner and Rimmel Sexy Curves Mascara*.
Friendly Face (male) award: Kim Bum
Another Boys Over Flowers star, Kim Bum first caught my eye when he was in Rude Woman/Outrageous Women, where his winsome smiles and heart-felt crying scenes marked him out for success.
Friendly Face (female) award: Yoon Eun Hye
Sweet Yoon Eun Hye endeared herself to many with her role in Princess Hours/Goong but it was in Coffee Prince that she truly stood out. Acting as a tomboy who is mistaken for a real male, this coffee princess’s adorable dorkiness and portrayal of soft masculinity melted female hearts everywhere.
For skincare products that suit both men and women, try L’oreal and Olay. Both are trusted brands that work for mature skin too.
Healthy Hair award: Kim Ha Neul
With a full head of hair, this On Air star often induces follicle envy! I don’t know a lot about her but her crown certainly makes an impression.
To get her tousled look and lush locks, try Phyto haircare. Formulated using botanical science, this line packages its products in glass and aluminum containers to limit the use of preservatives.
Healthy Skin award: Lee Da Hae
Lee Da Hae’s beautifully-smooth skin often presents itself onscreen and in selca** photos. Memorable as the effervescent Yoo Rin in My Girl, she is a stunner with her delicate beauty.
For clear skin like hers, try natural skincare from Himalaya Herbals. She recently took a well-deserved break in Southeast Asia…no wonder this brand immediately came to my mind! :)
Sporty Physique award: Hwang Bo
Given equally to cookery and tectonic dancing, this beautifully-tanned former leader of Chakra rediscovered fame when she appeared on the reality program We Got Married with K-idol Kim Hyun Joong. In the show, she reveals her amazing personality, as well as her propensity for domestic activity.
Owner of a heart-stopping smile, Kim Hyun Joong is the perfect model for dental products. His hair may change (and even his nose ;)) but those teeth, they never fail to slay!
For fresh chompers, try Colgate Total Toothpaste or Oral-B Alcohol-Free Mouth Rinse. I’ve used both these products and like them for the cleanliness they impart.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this litle K-musing. Look out for the real YOU Awards to vote and stand a chance to win cash prizes! ;)
