‘Celebrity’ refers to an individual who is widely known by the masses, and Forbes takes 100 of these celebrities and ranks them based on income, influence, fame, and professionalism.
This format is the same that Forbes in the United States uses for their ‘Celebrity 100′ list, and the list is reported on an annual basis.
Girls’ Generation claimed the top two spots under the categories of most articles published, the highest number of television advertisements, TV appearances, and more. Additionally, the #1 celebrity most wanted by broadcasting companies is none other than Girls’ Generation, and the girls shot 36 television advertisements last year alone, and their album ‘The Boys‘ released late last year has sold over 380,000 copies.
The interesting thing to note about this year’s list is that 10 of the top 20 celebrities are idol singers. Here’s the breakdown of the idols in the top 20: Girls’ Generation in at #1, Big Bang at # 2, IU at #3,KARA at #4, B2ST at #9, 2PM at #11, JYJ at #13, TVXQ at #15, Super Junior at #16, and T-ARA at #17. The reason why these idols have made the list is because they have played a huge part in spreading K-pop awareness all over the globe. Flash mobs from New York, Los Angeles, London, Paris, and more began requesting performances from their favorite K-pop artists in their home countries, and cover-dance teams emulating K-pop choreographies have grown in number.
The only celebrities from last year’s list who made it within the top 10 this year are Olympic Gold medalist figure skater Kim Yuna, actor/singer Lee Seung Gi, and Manchester United soccer playerPark Ji Sung. Of all the celebrities, Kim Yuna has had the most media influence.

Photos from Yuri’s debut to the present day reveal her unchanging beauty
Girls’ Generation member Yurihas drawn attention for her unchanging beauty.
On February 18th, an online community board shared this compilation of photos under the title, ‘With light makeup, Yuri looks the same since her debut’.
As the title points out, the pictures range from Yuri’s debut days to her recent shoot in New York City for upcoming drama series, ’Fashion King‘. Though the compilation stretches over five years, Yuri’s youthful looks hardly seem to have affected. The only change now is that she looks more like a sophisticated woman of the world, instead of a young rookie.
Netizens commented, “Yuri really hasn’t changed at all~” and “She’s so pretty! Then and now her beauty remains the same~!!”
Yuri is currently filming for ‘Fashion King’, which is to air on March 12th.
