In the most searched names of 2013, actor Park Si Hoo came in second place due to his scandal and eventual return to work as an actor.  Sexy model and actress Clara came into the spotlight this year, ranking in fourth.  Following in fifth was the viral group Crayon Pop, who will surely have more fun dances and songs for their fans next year.
