Girls' Generation member Im Yoona has become one of the top star in the Chinese entertainment industry, thanks to her Chinese debut drama, God of War. The period drama set in the turbulent years of the Han dynasty is described to be a huge success and an ultimate breakthrough for the young actress.
Recently, during airing of talk show, Taxi, the 26-year-old addressed the popularity of her Chinese debut drama, and very modestly accepted its success. The actress was reportedly shy to boast about her incredible performance in the drama.
The anchor also tagged the drama as one of the monster hit for any Korean celebrity. Lee Young Ja asserted: "You're treated like a national guest in China. The views for 'God of War, Zhao Yun' is much higher than those of 'You Who Came From the Stars' and 'Descendants of the Sun.' It boasts a whopping 10 billion view count!"
Yoona exhibited her excitement in one line by saying: "Yes. The 10 billion views are true."
Meanwhile the multitalented actor, who debuted as a singer in girl group Girls's Generation, has previously addressed questions related to her shooting popularity in a meekly manner. When asked to reveal the recipe of her world-wide adulation, the You are my Destiny actress relayed: "I'm not too sure, but I think people recognize me from Girls' Generation, and came to like me even more through my Chinese dramas."
On hitting 10 billion views for God of War, she shared: "It's a number that I never even imagined. It felt very untrue at first because it was the first time that I ever experienced 10 billion views. It's incredible."
