Although many female idols have public recognition, there is definitely a discrepancy between top celebrities and rising stars.
With 2016 having just begun, netizens discussed which female idols are currently at the top of industry right now.
And while a post on Pann that named some of the most well-known girl group members as the top five has received a lot of attention, it has also been very controversial among other netizens for including AOA‘s Seolhyun along with Girl’s Day‘s Hyeri, miss A‘s Suzy, Girls’ Generation‘s Taeyeon, and EXID‘s Hani.
In order listed below: Hyeri, Seolhyun, Suzy, Hani, Taeyeon
Koreaboo has collected reactions from Netizens who commented on the original article from our Korean source. The below comments are the most popular comments at the time of this article being published.
[+151, -72] What’d Seolhyun achieve? Hani’s responsible for bringing fame to her group single handed, Suzy needs no explanation, Taeyeon has an amazing fandom and music career and Hyeri’s made her place with Respond 1988. Seolhyun was just trending with her cardboard panels so stop including Seolhyun in everything. Her media play is annoying enough.
[+102, -19] This is true but personally I think Suzy and Taeyeon are the only ones to stay. Seolhyun’s here because of media play but her bubble’s probably going to burst soon and Hani’s fans are dwindling since the dating was confirmed.
[+94, -7] This is true but now the fight is who’s here to stay. Suzy’s been at the top for 4~5 years, Taeyeon for 8~9 so unless something happens they’re going to stay at the top since both had and have public relationships. Hani’s still going strong after her relationship went public so there’s a high possibility she’ll be here to stay.
[+35, -23] Shouldn’t the ranking be Suzy, Hyeri, Seolhyun, Taeyen then Hani? Hani seriously looks so fake recently especially on Radio Star and award shows. She keeps contradicting herself. She wants to please her fans but date at the same time so she keeps thinking too much when she speaks.
