Celebrity couple Lee Bo-young and Ji Sung, who tied the knot in late September, have been voted actors of the year in a nationwide poll of 1,702 people aged 13 or older by Gallup Korea.

Lee ranked first with 11 percent of the vote and Ji placed second with 8.1 percent.

This year, Lee gave standout performances in two hit TV soaps -- the KBS drama "Seo-young, My Daughter" and SBS' "I Hear Your Voice." Ji also starred in a couple of slightly lower-profile TV series.

So Ji-sub ranked third, followed by Joo Won and Lee Jong-suk.
