Last month, we asked you to let us know which stars you thought have the most kissable lips. And you didn’t hold back in letting us know your favorites. We couldn’t include every name that was given to us, but we tried to include the top 12 stars that you felt have the most kissable lips. See if you agree with other Viki fans!

Lee Min Ho

There’s no denying that no other Asian actor working today can make fans swoon quite like Lee Min Ho. You can’t get enough of this actor — or his kissable lips! See the hottest smackers in town in “Heirs” “The Great Doctor (aka Faith),” “City Hunter,” “Personal Taste” and “Boys Over Flowers”!


Kim Soo Hyun

Ever since “My Love From the Star” made this young actor into a major star, you can’t get enough of Kim Soo Hyun and his chiseled good looks. Don’t miss his sweet, juicy lips in “Dream High” and “The Moon Embracing the Sun” also!


Suzy

Bae Sue Ji — better known by her stage name Suzy (of the Korean girl group miss A) — was ranked No. 14 on a recent list of the 100 most beautiful faces. So it’s no wonder that many of you think she has one of the most kissable lips in Asia! See this stunning beauty in her roles in “Gu Family Book,” “Dream High” and “Big.”


Lee Dong Wook

Lee Dong Wook knows how to play strong, yet vulnerable, characters in “Hotel King,” “Wild Romance,” “Scent of a Woman” and “Partner.” But you also seem to be preoccupied by those shapely lips of his!


Jun Ji Hyun (Gianna Jun)

Jun Ji Hyun rose to stardom after her film “My Sassy Girl” became the highest-grossing comedy of 2001, but her role in the 2014 drama “My Love From the Star” escalated her to superstardom, with fans causing a worldwide shortage of the lipstick color she wore in the drama! You also can enjoy those beautifully polished lips in “White Valentine.”


Lee Jong Suk

When Lee Jong Suk is going through emotional distress in his roles in “Doctor Stranger,” “I Hear Your Voice” and “School 2013,” you just want to kiss those big, soft lips and make it all better!


Park Shin Hye

Park Shin Hye became the the most envied woman when she shared kissing scenes with Lee Min Ho in the 2014 drama “Heirs.” Maybe that’s why you voted for her as a star with one of the most kissable lips! Check out those luscious smoochers in “Flower Boy Next Door,” “You’re Beautiful,” “Heartstrings” and “Kimcheed Radish”!


Song Joong Ki

Bet you didn’t know that this young actor is a former speed skating athlete and very academically accomplished! But Song Joong Ki also published a health and beauty book for men in 2013, so he knows how to take care of his gorgeous lips! See the proof in “Innocent Man,” “Sungkyunkwan Scandal,” “A Tree With Deep Roots,” “Obstetrics and Gynecology Doctors (aka OBGYN)” and “Triple”!


Lee Seung Gi

One of the most successful singer-turned-actors, Lee Seung Gi has demonstrated star power in his many drama roles. See those heart-melting lips in “You’re All Surrounded,” “Gu Family Book,” “The King 2 Hearts,” “My Girlfriend Is a Gumiho,” “Shining Inheritance” and as an MC for the variety show “Strong Heart.”


Chris Wu

The Taiwanese actor made his film debut in “Fragile in Love” in 2007 and his television debut in 2009 in the drama “Autumn’s Concerto.” Ever since then, Chris Wu has been melting hearts and gaining fans with this talents and those full, pouty lips! See them in action in the recently ended drama “Rock ‘n’ Road,” as well as “What Is Love” and “Inborn Pair.”


Park Yoochun

Park Yoochun commands respect as both an idol singer and serious actor who has shown his versatility in his roles in “Three Days,” “Rooftop Prince,” “Miss Ripley,” “Sungkyunkwan Scandal” and “I Miss You.” But you respect those lips, too!


Sunny of Girls’ Generation

The multitalented singer, dancer, radio personality, MC, model and actress has what you fans describe as kissable “duck lips.” See her many talents and those duck lips in Episode 165 and Episode 166 of “Strong Heart” and Episode 39 of “Running Man”!

Viki Introduces: Bollywood Titles!

Viki now has a selection of premium Indian videos, ranging from the Golden Age of Bollywood to the hottest new releases! Our extensive new library includes movies from top production houses like Balaji and Rajshri as well!

http://www.viki.com/videos/1048841v-shootout-at-lokhandwala

Feeling a little clueless about Bollywood? No worries, we’ve got you covered! 

Wait  why IS it called Bollywood?

The term “Bollywood” was created by combining the words “Hollywood” and “Bombay” (now known as Mumbai). Hence, “Bollywood” was born!

Did Bollywood ever have a Golden Age like Hollywood?

But of course! The films produced between the 1940s and 1960s are regarded by film critics to be the most critically acclaimed cinematic period for Bollywood.

Alright, alright, thats very nice and all, but who’s famous in Bollywood?

Shah Rukh Khan
Shah Rukh Khan rose to fame with Pardes, later earning a nomination for Best Actor at Filmfare (the Hindi version of the Academy Awards), but he’s also ranked among the 50 most powerful people in the world by Newsweek. And if that’s not enough, Khan also earns more money than Tom Cruise and Johnny Depp! Say what?!


Aishwarya Rai
Aishwarya Rai is heralded as one of the most beautiful women in the world, being nominated as Miss World in 1999. She also is well known for her humanitarian work, supporting causes to help fight HIV/AIDS, cruelty against animals and cleft palettes. On top of ALL of that, she’s a celebrated actress, starring in films such as Khakee,” “Action Replayyand Taal.

Amitabh Bachchan
Amitabh Bachchan has won numerous acting awards for Black and starred in the Bollywood equivalent of “The Godfather,” known as Sarkar. Bachhan also has starred in the blockbuster hit Shootout at Lokhandwala. As added testament to Bachchans popularity, in 2000, he was the first living Asian to get a wax figure at the world famous Madame Tussaud’s London!

Dilip Kumar
Reigning as one of the greatest actors from the Golden Age, Dilip Kumar can be viewed as one of Bollywood’s greatest. His films include Karma and Saudagar, and all of his hard work has paid off! Kumar holds a Guinness World Record for the most awards won by an Indian Actor. Talk about popularity!

Awesome! But with so many videos available, where should I start?

Need some action in your life? Then try watching Once Upon a Time in Mumbai, which tells the tale of Sultan and his rise to power in the murky underbelly of Mumbai during the 1970s. This movie pays tribute to the golden age of Bollywood with some of Bollywoods most popular stars  plus theres a sequel if you want even more action! But if you need even more explosions, try Shootout at Lokhandwala” — based on the true story of five criminals, 286 policemen and a six-hour standoff between them!

And once you’re done watching giant explosions and shootouts, try some more dramatic titles, such as “Shor in the City,” which tells three different stories in parallel about the challenges of surviving in the big city of Mumbai. Or try “Kahaani,” a story about a woman who comes to Mumbai to search for her missing husband but only finds dead-end clues.

Ready to branch out into Bollywood? Then let’s get watching!



Note: Subtitle creation is not available on Bollywood titles yet, but will be in a few weeks. Stay tuned and we'll let you know when the subtitling tools are ready for you to use!

5 Fun Facts About Birthday Boy Sungyeol!

Happy Birthday to Lee Sungyeol from hot K-pop group Infinite, who was born on August 27, 1991!


The singer and actor has increased in popularity with his starring role in the current drama “Hi! School: Love On,” and we don’t see his popularity waning anytime soon.

If you want to find out more about this flower boy, read below for five fun facts about the birthday boy that we bet you didn’t know!

He Is 6 Feet Tall

Sungyeol’s innocent looks may fool you, but his height makes him stand out onscreen and while performing on stage.


His Aunt Also Is in the Entertainment Industry

Yoon Yoo Sun is an actress who has appeared in many popular dramas, including “Wonderful Days,” “Good Doctor,” “Jang Ok Jeong, Lives in Love” and “Marry Me, Mary!” She’s definitely a veteran sunbae since she has acted in more than 40 dramas since 1995!

His Nickname Is Gingiva Prince

Whenever he smiles, his gingiva, or gums, can be seen and this is the reason for Sungyeol’s nickname. We think he looks handsome no matter what. Don’t you agree? 


He Knows His Ideal Type of Girl

Sungyeol has said in the past that he likes girls who are easy-going and cute. He’s looking for someone who doesn’t pretend to be anything but herself. Sadly, the reason why he doesn’t currently have a girlfriend is that he’s an idol. 


He Was the Last Member to Join K-Pop Group Infinite

Sungyeol’s position in the group may only be as a vocalist, but this hasn’t stopped him from working hard to make Infinite into the massively well-known group it is now. The group has come far from its humble beginnings in 2010 to its best-selling albums in 2013.   

Catch Infinite’s recent music comeback on “SBS Inki Gayo” at the 57:47 mark with its latest hit song, “Back.”



Which fact were you most surprised to learn? Tell us in the comments and wish a happy birthday to Lee Sungyeol!
