I thought the three long haired ladies would remain 1-2-3 for the foreseeable future but already one very well-loved variety superstar has wedged himself between them to start of 2015. The rankings are out for the month of January 2015 for the Korea domestic CF power list, providing a snapshot of the start of the year that looks mighty like how last year looked. Once again this is a ranking of celebrity domestic CFs in Korea, aggregating factors like quantity of CFs, price paid, the CF influence, etc., and is compiled by the Korean advertising association.
Jeon Ji Hyun retains her top dog ranking followed close behind by retired-from-competition figure skating queen Kim Yuna. Suzy lost her third place placement to a surging from below variety MC Yoo Jae Seok while Lee Seung Gi and Kim Soo Hyun switched spots with each other likely due to Seung Gi promoting his movie while Soo Hyun didn’t have any acting projects on deck. Hyun Bin stays nice and solid right behind with Ryu Seung Ryong, Kim Woo Bin, and Kim Tae Hee rounding out the top ten. I’m more curious to see if any name from much lower in the tens or twenties ranking breaks into the top ten this year in 2015 due to an acting breakout in a drama or movie.
