Online research platform 'PMI' recently carried out a poll with 2,000 males and females from their 20s-50s, to find out which idol, in the public's eye, is the 'Idol-turned-actor/actress to look forward to' the most in the coming years.

If you were asked this poll question, which acting-idol would you choose? Voted in 1st place with 14.3% of the votes was none other than BTOB's Sungjae, whose acting in trending tvN drama 'Goblin' has been the buzz of netizens for the past few episodes. Sungjae also received 23.6% of the votes from poll takers in their 20s, while ZE:A's Siwan received more votes from poll takers in their 30s, at 10.9%. Siwan took 2nd place overall with 8.5% of the total votes. 

In 3rd place, idol-turned-actress Girl's Day's Hyeri shined with 7.7% of the votes, while miss A's Suzy earned 4th place with 6.8%, and Shinhwa's Eric landed at 5th with 6.1%. 

Do you agree with the results?

I'm glad that Sungjae is getting more recognition, I've enjoyed his acting in "Goblin". However, I don't think it's right to have Eric on this list, he's been acting for a long time and this survey seemed more for Idols who are still establishing themselves as ators.

Siwan. I always look forward to his dramas and Misaeng was one of my personal faves + another amazing TvN drama.

Eric Min is the best idol turned actor( he must be #1 with TOP), too bad fans voting for Sungjae ( he is good ofc)  because he is more popular among int/young fans

Siwan was born to be an actor.

LOL I've been watching Goblin and I didn't even know Sungjae was an idol... But I guess that's because I don't know much about BTOB

I kinda hoped for my child, DO, to be here, but everyone was really good too!!!

Kyungsoo was on the original article quoted as one of the successful idol-turned-actor. I think he already achieved his place as an well known actor.

I thought Takuya will be here or there are more people on the list. But yeah, of course, polls like this is mainly based on popularity(of the idols/the drama/movie) not, you know.

Pretty sure Takuya was an actor before he was an idol.
