Paris Hilton Appears In South Korean Pop Star Kim Jang-Hoon's Music Video

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.

Paris tweeted: "On set shooting with Kim Jang Hoon. Such a nice guy! Love #Korea"

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.
