1. [+411, -19] Other than long running varieties, stuff like favorite actors and singers change all the time according to trends so it's amazing that 'Running Man' and 'Infinity Challenge' have managed to stay up there so high

2. [+380, -26] Yoo Jae Suk the God

3. [+279, -34] Wow, Yoo Jae Suk... and gotta point out Big Bang at #1 and G-Dragon at 32..

4. [+27, -13] Looks like Hwang Chi Yeol really is popular in China, can't believe he's ranked 3rd there

5. [+25, -9] Does Korea really have no other representative drama than 'Descenants of the Sun'? That drama was such trash and shouldn't represnt Korea at all

6. [+18, -4] 'Running Man' at 85.9%... just how popular is that show over there

7. [+14, -3] I really had no idea 'Running Man' would become this huge when I first started watching it. I of course felt that the concept was so fresh for a variety show but I surely thought it'd fail...

8. [+14, -4] Proud of all of them, thank you

9. [+12, -1] Winter Sonata... was a hit in Japan. I don't think it's actually ranked 3rd in Korea;;

10. [+12, -11] I seriously can't stand Runnign Man because it's so corny.. sigh;

11. [+12, -11] I wonder when Song Joong Ki's bubble will pop

12. [+11, -10] Don't rankings like this change all the time? No way that Song Joong Ki is Korea's actual second favorite actor...;;
