Others may find being pretentious a negative character, but on Jang Geun Suk, fans find it charming.
Community portal site DC Inside conducted a poll which asked, "Which celebrity is charming for being pretentious?", and of the 1,403 votes, actor Jang Geun Suk received 24.2 percent or 339 votes.
Jang Geun Suk is famous for having a devil-may-care attitude, brutally honest social media posts, and intimidating expressions, and this earned him a negative image with the online community.
On the other hand, fans find this characteristic charming on the singer, and he was able to direct the negative publicity into something positive by giving out donations and participating in community activities.
Placing second in the poll is rock singer Jung Joon Young, who is heavily criticized for not understanding the Korean culture as a result of living overseas during his childhood.
He changed his negative image by engaging in positive deeds, reports KDramaStars.
Also included are singer G-Dragon from male group Big Bang, actor Yoo Ah In, and comedian Yoo Se Yoon.
