1. [+607, -37] Ah ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Lee Soo Man, EXO, Yang Hyun Suk, and Big Bang all separately made it on to the top 10

2. [+479, -34] They're all amazing but I personally find gagman Yoo Jae Suk at #4 most amazing

3. [+325, -56] Thought Yoo Jae Suk would be #1 but #4 is amazing too ♥♥♥

4. [+134, -18] The one top celebrity is Yoo Jae Suk

5. [+31, -1] Great work to everyone, let's spend an even better year next year~

6. [+26, -4] Yang Hyun Suk, Na Young Suk, Yoo Jae Suk? I'm going to make sure my son's name has a 'Suk' in it

7. [+13, -1] EXO and Big Bang really are a wall, out of all the idols, just those two are in the top 10

SNSD ranked #35, IU #39, AOA #41

1. [+48, -7] The list does't seem very objective

2. [+33, -6] Female viewers have completely taken over the broadcast industry. What's scary about that is that if they don't like something, they gang up like bees and terrorize all the message boards until they get what they want. They don't care if their ideas ruin a show and make it boring. They start all the witch hunts...

3. [+35, -7] I wouldn't say SNSD's fandom is weak though..

4. [+58, -15] Jun Ji Hyun and SNSD are both jjang jjang though

5. [+53, -16] It's because women can't stand to see another woman do well. They have to bring them down.

6. [+8, -2] Well female viewers hold the power with the channels. It's hard for producers to pick up on female stars, especially those in their twenties, because the ajumma viewers will put down their acting or demand makjang plots ㅠㅠㅠ

7. [+9, -3] SNSD is still the #1 when it comes to girl groups and female singers ㅋㅋㅋ
