Idols Pick HyunA as #1 “World-Idol”
4minute’s HyunA has been crowned with the title “World Idol” by fellow idols.
On March 20, MBC Every1’s “Weekly Idol Ranking” aired a segment of the ranking “Best 7 World-Dols Who Would Become the 2nd PSY.” Like every week prior, the production staff handed out ballots to current generation idols where they had to cast their votes.
Some of the other candidates who entered the top seven were Super Junior’s Eunhyuk (loved by many as Anchovy), SHINee’s Key (known for his outstanding language skills) and Big Bang’s G-Dragon (acknowledged by famous foreign celebrities).
However, the results show that HyunA came out on top. Many idols reason that since she appeared in PSY’s mega-hit music video “Gangnam Style,” a lot of people have seen her face and she’ll have the best opportunity to make it on the grand scale.
After HyunA heard the results, she said, “I think it’s more important that foreign fans love Korean music than what my ranking is. I’m thankful, but am embarrassed.”
