In a recent online community, netizens reacted to one street survey conducted by a YouTuber, asking, "Who is the most famous Japanese celebrity in Korea?"

This YouTuber explained that she decided to conduct this survey after pondering about the question, after which she came to the conclusion that "In the end, it is probably TWICE's Mi-Sa-Mo!"

Thus, she set out to "prove" her own theory that the most famous Japanese celebrities to the Korean public were in fact, TWICE's Mina, Sana, and Momo.

However, once she began to survey people on the streets, she received some varied answers!

Some of the most frequent responses she heard included: IZ*ONE's Miyawaki Sakura, TWICE's Sana, as well as TWICE's Mi-Sa-Mo.

But in the end! The survey's final results were as follows:

"Who is the most famous Japanese celebrity in Korea?"

3rd place - TWICE's Sana

2nd place - IZ*ONE's Miyawaki Sakura

1st place - Shimizu Ken

(Shimizu Ken a.k.a ShimiKen is a Japanese male AV actor. His YouTube channel is also popular among Koreans.)

Netizens reacted with comments like,

"ShimiKen... that's a fact."
"Who the heck is ShimiKen... for me it's Sarang's mom."
"For me it's SMAP's Tsuyoshi Kusanagi... But I guess kids these days wouldn't know him."
"Koreans love ShimiKen's funny YouTube videos."
"I mean these days, I think it's true that Mi-Sa-Mo and Sak-Nak-Hi are at the top."
"You don't immediately think of Mi-Sa-Mo as foreigners though. They are just TWICE members kekekeke."
  1. IZ*ONE
  2. TWICE
  3. Momo
  4. Sana
  5. Mina
