Park Bo-gum, Park Bo-young top survey among office workers
A new survey has revealed that South Korean stars Park Bo-gum and Park Bo-young have the most “hirable faces.”
According to reports of K-Pop Herald, the local survey was conducted by job search engine Job Korea. It asked 993 office workers who they think are the celebrities who had the most hirable faces, 27 percent of whom named Park Bo-gum for his likeable and gentle image.
The “Love in the Moonlight” star was followed by singer and actor Lee Seung-gi as well as “Reply 1994” star Yoo Yeon-seok. Singer Seungri from the group Big Bang also fared well, accounting for 13.3 percent of the vote.
Among female celebrities, Park Bo-young was branded the most hirable face according to the survey, with many respondents citing her “smiley face” and “polite image.” Actress Kim Tae-ri came second while Park Shin-hye also fared well.
Respondents chose Kim for her “professional” and “trustworthy” image, while the “Doctors” star came across as “earnest” and as a calming influence during times of discord.
From the perspective of their broader images, bubbly singer Hani from EXID ranked high, as she is seen as the life of the party for her bright personality, while singer Soyou was also seen as an ideal job candidate for her confidence and strong work ethic. Nearly seven in ten respondents believed some faces are more hirable than others.
When asked about what affects candidates during a job interview, many people said good impressions mattered the most, while others said “bright and confident facial expressions” and “clean-cut looks” are really important. JB
