Lee Juk’s “It’s fortunate” (above in video) has been named the best song to confess one’s love.

Ahead of White Day on Saturday, a day meant for men to confess their love to women, the music content firm Kumyoung surveyed men on the song they most want to sing to their girlfriends, and women on the song they most want to hear from their boyfriends. Both men and women chose “It’s fortunate.”

Both genders also chose the same song for second place: “May I Love You” by Glass Case, and then Kim Dong-ryul’s “Saying I Love You.”

The ten day survey from Feb. 25 was conducted on 873 (454 men, 419 women) members on http://www.feeltong.com, a Kumyoung portal, and on the online karaoke club “Nolbangpa.”

As for the song women want to sing to their men, and men most want to hear from their lovers, was Lee Eun-mi’s heartrending ballad “I have a lover.” Men also thought singer Sung Si-kyung had the best voice for a love confession love.

As for the best male star for a White Day love proposal, actor Kim Bum was chosen. He is playing a philanderer in the hit drama “Boys over Flowers.” Singer Rain ranked second and the main lead of “Boys,” Lee Min-ho, came in next.

Men chose Girls’ Generation, and women Big Bang, for the idol group they most want to spend White Day with.

Crying Nut’s “Let’s ride a horse” was named the song to be avoided most on White Day.

Seung Ri (19), a member of the top idol group Big Bang, has been cast in the film “71.”

“71” is based on a real life story of 71 student soldiers who fought hundreds of North Korean commandos outside a Pohang girls’ middle school on Aug. 10, 1950 during the Korean War. Yu Seung-ho and Kim Bum have also been cast.

Seung Ri, a native of Gwangju city, will speak in a Jeolla dialect in the movie and play student soldier “Yeon Chi-wuk,” who harbors strong hostility toward North Korean forces. Yeon will also have conflicts with the 71-strong unit chief “Park Han-seob” (played by Kim Bum) and the more compassionate of the characters, Yu Jin (Yu Seung-ho).

YG Entertainment says it is Seung Ri’s second film role following his first film “Why did you come to my house?” starring actress Kang Hye-jung. It said the boy band member was cast through an open audition and the role in “71” will be a helpful acting experience for him.

YG also cited several role calls for Seung Ri from TV, film and musicals ever since his acting skills were recognized in the musical “Shower” early last year.
