Actor Kang Tae Oh topped the brand power ranking among male actors for five consecutive weeks.
From Oct 26th to 2 p.m. on Nov 2th, Star Survey held a vote to find out the “Brand Power” chart of actors and actresses of the 5th week of October. As a result, Kang Tae Oh topped the actor category in the 5th week of October.
Kang Tae Oh received 1,032,780 votes out of 2,446,410 total votes.
Kang Tae Oh’s results are all the more eye-catching because he is now in the military. In addition to the hot afterglow of his character in the ENA drama “Extraordinary Attorney Woo,” his favorable image accumulated by his public appearances on commercials, pictorials, interviews, and online fan meetings, leads to his current popularity.
Moreover, the news that Kang Tae Oh will continue his military service as an assistant instructor, caused a lot of attention alongside how good he looks in his extraordinary uniform fit.
Even before joining the military, Kang Tae Oh ranked first for five consecutive weeks as a result of the survey conducted by GoodData Corporation, a TV topic analysis company. As such, Kang Tae Oh’s absence is expected to be minimized, although he may regret going to the military while being in his best heyday since his debut.
The release of Kang Tae Oh’s “Target” with actors Shin Hye Sun and Kim Sung Kyun is also on the way, and fans can still meet the charming Kang Tae Oh in online advertisements.
Meanwhile, Kang Tae Oh entered the boot camp of the 37th Division of Jeungpyeong-gun, Chungcheongbuk-do, on Oct 20th. Before joining the military, Kang Tae Oh said, “It is an honor for me to be able to leave while surrounded by so many love, interest, and blessings. I feel like I’m getting too much love. I will repay everyone. I will be on a short hiatus, but I will return to you with a mature appearance after fulfilling my national defense obligations. Please wait for me.”
