Model-actor Lee Kwang-soo was picked by Korean rhythmic gymnast Son Yeong-jae as her ideal type of man, during Sunday’s episode of the SBS variety show “Running Man.” When asked to pick her ideal type, the national sports star, who was appearing as a guest on the show, hesitated, saying, “Among the co-hosts (of the program) here?”
Son eventually revealed that Lee is closest to her ideal type, which prompted others on the show to say that she does not take appearance into account. Before picking Lee, the gold medalist at the 2014 Incheon Asian Games had said a man’s height matters. Lee is 190 centimeters tall.
Born in 1994, Son ranks fifth in International Federation of Gymnastics World standings for rhythmic gymnastics. She clinched gold medals at the Asian Championships in 2013, 2015 and 2016, as well as at the 2014 Asian Games and 2015 Summer Universiade.
