Who were the most popular idols this year among young Koreans? 

Gallup released the annual survey result for 2016 for teens and those in their 20s to find out which idol stars they liked the most. 

Girls' Generation Taeyeon topped the list with 11.8% of votes; more male voters liked the singer than female voters, but she still ranked number one in both genders. 

IU, who was number one last year, is second place this year with 6.6% of votes. Tzuyu followed closely with 6.3%. IU was preferred more by male teens (11.4%) and Tzuyu was liked more by men in their 20s (8.6%).

IU in the list without comeback, her music is truly beautiful ....Unnie I love you with all my heart ,your comeback will be my salvation

Aww, so good IU. You are one of the best. If she came back 2016, she was in the 1st place. But I'm happy that she is in 2nd place. Congrats Taeyeon!. I Love you IU, comeback quickly. Can't wait to see you IU. <3

BTS made it to the entry this year is to be expected. this year is a huge leap for them~but to the point the members are recognized.. i should already see that coming so it pleasantly surprises me

damn Tzuyu! Didn't expect her that high on the list! And i'm glad Somi made it on there too! :D

ARMYandBTSalways Wednesday, December 21, 2016

I'm surprised that V, the most popular member of BTS didn't make the list.

s_necklace ARMYandBTSalways Wednesday, December 21, 2016

how do you conclude v is the most popular? though, he definitely will get more popular after hwarang. jimin pretty much fascinates the public though this year with fire's 3:33 (and several other things from korean forum, i forget what else)

So let me get this straight.. IU was popular among teenagers.. whereas the actual teenager (Tzuyu) was popular among adult men? Also kind of surprised to see Chanyeol so high in the rankings given that he is, for some reason, one of the most hated EXO members (I'm glad tho this puppy doesn't deserve to be hated). And yes for Jimin and Jungkook, I feel like a proud wife and mother.

ARMYandBTSalways Shiraa Wednesday, December 21, 2016

why is Chanyeol hated? From what I saw he seems to have a funny personality

Shiraa ARMYandBTSalways Wednesday, December 21, 2016

Apparently Korean fans don't like his attitude and actions. I believe they once got upset because he "cursed" (I believe he said a sentence used by kids to curse). Channie is very honest and straightforward and is also not afraid to stand up against the behavior of his fans and I guess some fans don't like that

young korean adults liking tzuyu, a 16 year old child so much ---- creepy

people says it best to have a wife with 10 years gap.

hiroonakamura Gaming_Haku Sunday, December 25, 2016

but not if the wife is still a kid though

ARMYandBTSalways Wednesday, December 21, 2016

I don't get why Seolhyun is so popular? Her face is very average compared to the other female idols. She has a hot body but almost all idols have nice bodies. And she doesn't have the musical talents like IU or Taeyeon, nor acting like Yoona. Anybody know?

Lily097 ARMYandBTSalways Wednesday, December 21, 2016

Because her faces is definitely not average, her body is just amazing, I have never seen an idol with her curves. And because she is kind and charming and has gone to a lot of variety shows. People who don't know her always say same things as you lol...
