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.
