Top executives vote on the top groups, most influential 'power players', and more in the K-pop industry

USER CONTENT

Top industry executives have voted on their picks for who they think are the most influential players in the K-pop game. 

In celebration of their 35th anniversary, Sports Chosun interviewed over 50 label agencies and executives to get the scoop on which figures they have their eyes on.

Voters were able to make three choices for each of the eight categories, with differing point values based on the votes. First-place votes received three points, second-place votes received two points, and third-place votes received one point. The artists with the most votes in each category were chosen as the winners.
