He is the idol in Korea. I'm past the age of idolizing a celebrity though. What I like about Bae Yong-jun is his watchable look. Since I don't speak his language nor do I read up rumors on stars, I really have got no idea what's going on in this person's private or even public life. I simply like to watch his TV series and like some of the characters he has been portraying. Actors are simply actors as far as I'm concerned.
