As co-host of Top Gear Korea, the Korean version of the popular British motoring programme, actor Yun Jung Hoon lives life in the fast lane.

He has no dream car because he is already driving one - the Ferrari 458 Spider.

Speaking over the telephone from Kuala Lumpur where he was promoting season two of the show, he laughingly says through a translator: "I own a Ferrari 458 Spider, and used to be a racer in Korea. I don't know if that tells you how good a driver I am."

Yun, 34, also owns "several cars but to name a few, a Maserati and Ferrari", just like his fellow automobile-crazy English host of BBC's Top Gear, Englishman Jeremy Clarkson.
