Who are the most popular Korean actors and idols in China?

G-Dragon, Lay, Victoria, Song Joong Ki

Lay, Victoria, and G-Dragon continue to rank high on Sina's Star Ranking chart in China. Noteworthy is EXO's Sehun soaring up to 46th place; he is currently in the midst of filming 'My Dear Archimedes,' a Chinese web-drama. Additionally, EXO wrapped up a concert in Hangzhou on September 30 with big success. 

Ranking 96th place is Hwang Chil Yeol, who rose to fame as the only foreigner on the Chinese version of 'I am Singer.' He will be collaborating with a girl group member with a song called "Fall, in girl."

Sina Star Ranking utilizes searching ranking, media exposure, and publicity to calculate the 100 most popular celebrities in China, and many Korean celebrities who are active in the Chinese market also open up Weibo accounts, making it easy to track their popularity. 

Baidu Chart, on the other hand, is based on data from live searches on Baidu. It is also categorized by gender and genre. Song Joong Ki ranks first place in the male actor category even though he is currently pretty invisible because of his movie filming schedule. Second place is Lee Jong Suk who not only solidified his popularity but also was recognized with his acting talent in the recent drama, 'W.' His most recent project is preparing for a movie titled, 'VIP.'

YoonA reigns queen, ranking first place in both female singer and actress categories. YoonA's Chinese debut drama, 'God of War, Zhao Yun,' had the highest rating while it was on air. Following YoonA, f(x)'s Victoria also ranked in both acting and music categories. 

Highest ranked Korean drama this week on the Baidu chart was won by 'Cinderella and Four Knights' following last week's win. Lastly, Hwang Jung Eum and Ryu Joon Yeol's 'Lucky Romance' ranked fourth place.
