In Korea and other parts of Asia, people often want to know what a person's blood type is because blood type is said to determine your personality.
Each of the blood types is supposed to have strengths and flaws.
For example, having an A blood type like Jung Yong Hwa, star of "Heartstrings" and "Future's Choice," means you're likely to be serious, patient and a perfectionist. As the leader of the band CNBLUE, the singer-actor has demonstrated those virtues. In that way he is a good example of that blood type's positive characteristics.
On the other hand, Ha Ji Won, the star of "Empress Ki," and Lee Min Ho, the star of "The Heirs," also have type A blood but they don't exhibit its fatal flaws. Type A people are said to be timid and indecisive. While these successful actors could be described as cautious, neither would be described as timid.
Those with blood type B have acquired an undeserved reputation. They are supposed to be creative but also selfish and moody. Men with Type B blood who are often described as players and women are warned not to get involved with them. There was even a film titled "My Boyfriend Is Type B."
Which stars have type B? Choi Seung Hyun, Big Bang's T.O.P. is certainly creative but seems too much the perfect gentleman to be considered a player. And so is Kim Hyun Joong, now starring in the drama "Inspiring Generation." Jun Ji Hyun of "You Who Came From The Stars" has type B blood and is happily married. Yoona is another person with type B blood and her current boyfriend Lee Seung Gi does not seem at all concerned.
People with type O blood are supposed to be all about making friends. They are curious but said to be careless. Park Yoochun, who is about to star in the drama "Three Days," is a type O and he could be described as friendly and caring. But he has never been described as careless. He's a consummate professional as an actor and as a singer. Infinite's L, who is preparing for his role in "Cunning Single Lady," has type O blood, as does Choi Jin Hyuk.
Those with type AB blood are said to over think things and that makes it tough to hang around with them. They are also supposed to be very changeable. That was certainly true for Kim Soo Hyun's character in "You Who Came From The Stars" but although the actor is introspective, he seems friendly enough. Lee Hongki, who stars in "Bride of the Century," is also an AB, as is 2PM's Taecyeon, who now stars in the weekend drama "Wonderful Days."
Do you believe that a personality can be determined by blood type? And do you think these actors are good examples. Let us know.
