Jang Dong-yoon, who wore hanbok in the K-drama The Tale of Nokdu, finished in 10th place in the poll.

There was only a small difference in number of votes between him and the actors who finished below and above. Jang Dong-yoon’s ranking is even more impressive considering the fact that he mostly had to wear a female hanbok throughout the drama series!
