On May 13, we reported that Panel Now, an online research agency, conducted a survey asking Koreans who they thought was the prettiest girl group member. According to the results, Suzy of miss A placed first with 6430 votes (29%).

There were also 2159 votes for “Other” (10%).
We then asked Soompiers who they thought was the prettiest out of the choices given by the Panel Now results, and while in the beginning it seemed like Suzy was going to win at Soompi too, Yoona beat her out, placing first with 27.88% out of the total 1,582 votes as of May 22 (KST).
