2NE1, actor Ryu Seung Ryong, and actress Kim Nam Joo were ranked at the top of the ‘Power Entertainers of 2013‘ in the categories of film, drama, and music.
The prestigious KAIST University measured the influence of celebrities including actors and actresses, singers, and TV personalities, and released the results of their ‘Power Entertainers of Korea 2013′ report. For the film category, the entertainers’ long-term box office sales over the past 3 to 5 years were counted and for the other categories, the votes of 1,300 people from their teens to 5os were researched to rank the most popular entertainers among a wide range of age groups.
In the ‘film’ category, actor Ryu Seung Ryong was ranked #1 for his roles in the box office smash hit films ‘Masquerade‘ and ‘Miracle In Cell No. 7‘. Actor Ha Jung Woo came in 2nd and Park Bo Young was the representative actress in the top 10 at #7.
