Korean buzz site Moolmang has been doing entertainment internet power rankings for awhile and the latest July issue is interesting enough as a current pulse taking snapshot to merit a post. The site ranks popularity/buzz based on the number of searches, number of listed about, number of listed on, number of vote obtained, hits on profile page, and hits on photo gallery. I’m surprised that Hallyu superstar Kim Soo Hyun came in number 1 for the actors, not because he’s lost any popularity because he clearly hasn’t, but he doesn’t have any promotions right now for drama or movies so for him to lead the rank is indeed impressive. Coming in number 1 for the ladies is teen actress Kim So Hyun who is currently starring in hit tvN drama Let’s Fight Ghost, so her current moment buzz makes sense and confirms her appeal even for one so young.
The male actor rankings are: Kim Soo Hyun, Song Joong Ki, So Ji Sub, Kim Woo Bin, and Lee Jun Ki.
The ladies rankings are Kim So Hyun, Kim Yoo Jung, Song Hye Kyo, Park Shin Hye, Seo Hyun Jin.
