A new study confirms that global K-pop sensation BTS and South Korea’s most followed actor on social media, Lee Min-ho, are among foreigners’ most loved Hallyu stars.

To say South Korean actor Lee Min-ho is a huge superstar would be a total understatement. The 30-year-old “The Heirs” and “Boys Over Flowers” actor is considered as one of the many high-ranking celebrities who is not only popular in South Korea, but in other parts of the world as well.
It turns out that Miss Ghana also adores Lee Min-ho, casually expressing her infatuation towards the actor and singer when she bonded with Miss Korea during the recent Miss Universe 2017 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
