Actor Lee Min-ho's popularity seems to know no bounds.
The actor came atop a straw poll of 3,000 radio listeners in 22 Arabic-speaking countries conducted by terrestrial broadcaster KBS from Sept. 3 to 17.
Lee received 14.8 percent of the votes when respondents were asked what Korean person comes to their mind first.
He was followed by K-pop boy bands Super Junior and EXO, who received 10.8 and nine percent, respectively.
Actress Park Shin-hye earned 5.1 percent of the votes and UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and President Park Geun-hye tied for fifth place with 2.6 percent.
Lee was voted as one of the most popular Korean stars in China in a similar poll carried out in August.
