Actor Hyun Bin and the nation's most in-demand dance group Girls' Generation have been voted as the celebrities Korean workers most want to invite to their year-end parties.
Of 980 office workers surveyed by Hiscott Kingdom, the whiskey-making affiliate of Hite Jinro, 39 percent chose Hyun Bin as their No. 1 pick among male stars, while 35 percent selected Girls' Generation as their top choice among female celebrities.
Office workers also favor relatively simple end-of-the-year parties this year due to the slow economy. In terms of how much they are prepared to shell out, 14 percent answered "less than W50,000," while another 43 percent are prepared to spend up to W100,000 (US$1=W1,130), and 20 percent drew the line at W200,000.
The survey also showed that 65 percent of workers plan to attend between three and four year-end parties in December, while 24 percent are preparing for one or two. Six percent of the busiest social networkers said they plan to attend more than six year-end parties this month.
