BIGBANG’s T.O.P was chosen as “Most Wanted Boyfriend” on Mnet’s “Super Idol Chart Show.”
The Valentine’s Day episode, which aired on February 14, revealed the rankings of idols stars on the “Most Wanted Boyfriend” list.
The MCs, Super Junior‘s Ryeowook and Beast‘s Dong Woon, were given hints to guess the number 1 idol. Their first hint given was comments from survey participants, “I picked him as the ‘Perfect Male Idol Boyfriend’ because if we’re together, I get to feel superior too,” “Because of his stunning visuals, we’ll receive attention wherever we go,” and “He has looks that I want to show off to everyone.”
While all the MCs could guess from the first hint was that the idol had good looks, the second hint gave everything away. Pictures of towers and pagodas (“tab” in Korean) were displayed, and the MCs were able to deduce the answer.
T.O.P emerged first among those surveyed, winning 17.6% of votes. He received overwhelming support from females in their early 20s.
Fellow BIGBANG member G-Dragon came in second (15.9%), followed by ZE:A‘s Im Siwan, Beast‘s Yoon Doo Joon, ZE:A’s Park Hyung Sik, CNBlue‘s Kang Min Hyuk, Super Junior’s Kyuhyun, Infinite’s L, B1A4‘s Baro and TVXQ‘s Yunho.
“Super Idol Chart Show” is a chart show that allows survey participants (300 subjects from 15-34) to rank idols according to different topics. It aims to share idol entertainment news in a new and interesting format.
Based on the topic, ten idols will be selected for the first round, and then further research is done to determine the order of the rankings. In the process, the MCs will be given hints that will allow them to guess the identity of each idol.
Mnet’s new program “Super Idol Chart Show” is hosted by Super Junior’s Ryeowook and Beast’s Son Dong Woon. It airs every Friday at 5:00 PM KST on Mnet.
