"Hallyu, leave it to us from now on!"


Amidst the unceasing popularity of the Hallyu's Lee Young Ae and Choi Ji Woo, female Hallyu Stars are still playing their part and continuing their efforts.

Through the collection of results from a set criteria of *ratings *achievements *potential to advance *appearance etc, Sports Hankook chose their top 2008 Hallyu Female Stars.

Amongst the selection, Yoon Eun Hye, Kim Ha Neul, Chae Rim, Jang Nara and Lee Da Hae shone the brightest.


With the results we received from the questionnaires that we handed out to the reps of the entertainment industry.
Yoon Eun Hye was the obvious first choice as the new and young Hallyu star to watch out and keep an eye on. In actual fact, YEH is a first generation Hallyu star, who had already broken into the Chinese Market.


In her teens, Yoon Eun Hye had already entered the China Market as the youngest member in girl group "Baby VOX". At the time, Baby V.O.X made history by topping the Chinese Pop Charts as a Korean Artist, with the song "Im Still Loving You". However, the one who is currently receiving all this attention is not the 'singer Yoon Eun Hye', but rather the 'actress Yoon Eun Hye'.


The MBC dramas Goong (2006) and The 1st Shop of Coffee Prince (2007) which had also received a powerful response nationwide, gave rise to YEH and made her a permanent fixture as an actress within the Asian Market.

The rights to were sold for a recorded $1000,000 and was exported to 9 countries, including China, Taiwan, Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand. The following project after was KBS2's The Man in The Vineyard, where the rights were also sold and exported to China, Taiwan and others, naturally placing YEH into the Hallyu market as "Yoon Eun Hye the actress".

The 1st Shop of Coffee Prince, received high popularity, ranking in at a record 12th highest viewed in Taiwan, beating Bae Yong Joon's The Legend which ranked 16th.

YEH, who could act as an adorable, pretty princess in Goong and could also convincingly deliver herself as a woman disguised as a man in The 1st Shop of Coffee Prince. For this, YEH is being acknowledged for her wide spectrum reaching acting ability.

Yoon Eun Hye has also shown her productable effectiveness by reaching far into the Commercial Market, as China's CF model for the Japanese Cosmetics Brand 'DHC'. Through the variety of it all, YEH has been chosen as the number 1 female actress to make the biggest impact in the Hallyu Market.
