Paris Hilton has landed a lucrative leading role in a South Korean pop superstar's new video following a popularity contest poll.
Kim Jang-Hoon wanted a Hollywood star to play his leading lady in his latest promo and so asked fans to pick their favourite actress.
A representative for the singer tells X17online.com, "We considered several Hollywood stars, such as Jessica Alba, Scarlett Johansson and Paris Hilton for the role, but a survey conducted in (South) Korea showed that Paris Hilton was the most well-known, so we chose her."
The video, which was shot in 3D, also features model Travis Hanson.
Hilton was reportedly paid close to $1 million (£625,000) for the two-day beach shoot.
