As if being the No.1 Hallyu star in China is not enough, actor Lee Minho is now also the face of Korea in the Arab world.

According to a KBS World Radio survey in the Arab world, the first Korean that an average Arabic speaker thinks of when they hear "Korea" is Lee Minho. Lee won the poll with 14.8 percent while Super Junior came 2nd with 10.8 percent. Trailing after were Park Shinhye and UN' s Secretary General Ban Kimoon.

The fact that Lee's dramas "The Heirs" and "City Hunter" did well in Arabic nations no doubt helped.
