This time, we collected idols who are known for not only their talent and looks but also their brains!  These idols have made themselves known through their impressive school rankings, IQ, test scores, and more - and keep in mind, we only included idols and the ones who are currently active.  Idols who are currently not with an agency (e.g. Sohyun), other talented artists who aren't idols (e.g., Tablo), and former idols (e.g., Seungyeon) were not considered for the list.

    they haven't been released yet (hence, 1 down, 3 to go).. but on average there's around 3 or 4 articles per year about IQ. Especially last year was quite a busy year for these articles where idols' IQs were highlighted. SK society has a schtick for IQ, even though it's just a context-less number like height and weight.
