With Secretly, Greatly recently topping the box office, one
can confirm that out of the many factors, a star actor appearing in a
film can help draw more people to theaters to check the film out. One
has to wonder, then, which actress has the most box office draw, out of
all the movies released in the second half of 2013?
Considering this question, we’ve rounded up the top 10 actresses who
(according to a viewer poll via Nate News) have the best box office draw
of the year below:
1. Ha Ji Won
The support shown by moviegoers for Ha Ji Won hasn’t swayed. In an online survey presented by Max Movie and Daily Focus Newspaper, about
21,456 people responded that actress Ha Ji Won was this year’s “box
office power winner.” This is the second year in a row for Ha Ji Won.
Later this year, the actress will return to the big screen with movie The Huntresses, which will be sure to keep her in the top rank.
2. Kim Hye Soo
Though the actress only made the top ten in last year’s survey, “ten million movie” The Thieves (2012) gained a lot of popularity recently, and she also starred in the drama The Queen of Office
(KBS2). For the second half of the year, the actress will return to the
big screen as a Korean geisha controlling the political arena in The Face Reader directed
by Han Jae Rim, with actors Song Kang Ho and Lee Jung Jae. Standing out
alongside these two powerful actors, Kim Hye Soo will surely get
another boost. It seems her box office power will exert force for quite a
3. Son Yeh Jin
Apart from last year’s results of 13.2%, giving her second place, it
appears Son Yeh Jin took a hit this year. However, #3 isn’t a small
feat, and with a role in the new drama Shark (KBS2), as well as the release of her new movie The Accomplice, there are enough chances for a comeback.
4. Gong Hyo Jin AND 5. Jeon Do Yeon (A tie)
Actress box office power #4 goes to “Gongvely” (Gong Hyo Jin + Lovely) and #5 is “Queen Actress” Jeon Do Yeon.
Following this year’s film, Gong Hyo Jin is planning to star in a new drama in August, The Master’s Sun (SBS). The Master’s Sun will be sister writers, Hong Jeong Eun and Hong Mi Ran’s new work. The Master’s Sun
is a unique romantic comedy where a woman experiences all of the things
mischievous and arrogant men cannot even see or hear. In this drama,
Gong Hyo Jin plays the role of Tae Gong Shil who sees a ghost after an
Without making any appearances since Countdown (2011), Jeon Do Yeon took charge with box office power #5, and is getting ready to reappear in The Way Home.
In it, Jeon Do Yeon plays the role of Song Jung Yeon, who is a wife
framed for delivering drugs, who is trapped in a prison in France. Actor
Go Soo plays the role of a struggling husband Lim Jong Bae who tries to
prove his wife’s innocence.
6. Jeon Ji Hyun AND 7. Han Hyo Joo (A tie)
After appearing in “ten million movie” The Thieves, Jeon Ji
Hyun took the sixth place in this year’s box office power. Trailing
behind at #7 is actress Han Hyo Joo, who starred in Gwanghae, the Man Who Became King (2012) and Love 911 (2012). The two actresses were included in the top ten last year and came in 6th and 7th place this year.
8. Kim Ha Neul, 9. Suzy, AND 10. Lim Soo Jung (3-way tie!)
Viewers chose actress Kim Ha Neul for #8 in box office power, Suzy for #9 and Lim Soo Jung for #10. Kim Ha Neul appears for A Gentleman’s Dignity (SBS), Suzy for Architecture 101 (2012), and Lim Soo Jung for All About My Wife. Through
these films, the actresses proved that their names scream: “If this
actress stars in this movie, then the movie ticket is worth it.”
Furthermore, Suzy is entering the “Box Office Power Top 10″ for the
first time, which is a huge accomplishment. Suzy is currently starring
in Gu Family Book (MBC). It seems Suzy may only climb further up the ranks in coming years.
The production company for the upcoming SBS drama “Master’s Sun,” Bon Factory, recently released a set of pictures of the drama leads, Gong Hyo Jin and So Ji Sub, that hint at the chemistry that viewers can expect from the drama.
pictures are color-themed in black, white, and red, dressing the two
actors in the same color, respectively for each picture. In the white
and red themed pictures, Gong Hyo Jin has her arounds So Ji Sub, while
in the black themed photo, So Ji Sub leans in for a hug. The two look
comfortable, close, and relaxed, which seemingly doesn’t match the
overall tone of their upcoming drama. “Master’s Sun” is about and man
named Joong Won, played by So Ji Sub, who is a greedy and self-centered
president of a department store and Gong Shil, played by Gong Hyo Jin,
who has the ability to see ghosts which complicates her life. The drama
will mix the genres of horror and romantic comedy.
