Conducted between October 26th and 27th, the poll attracted over 140,000 netizens (146,136 to be exact) in just a span of two days.
Taking over a quarter of the votes was S.E.S‘s Eugene with 25.8%. S.E.S is a first generation idol group who became one of the most popular girl group at the time, and debuted under SM Entertainment as a trio including Bada and Shoo in 1997.
Despite breaking up in 2002 and going their own way, the three have continued to show strong friendship throughout the years even through marriage. They recently held a short reunion on Infinite Challenge‘s “Saturday, Saturday, I Am A Singer” (commonly known as “Totoga”) though due to her pregancy, Eugene was unable to participate and was represented by Girls’ Generation‘s Seohyun.
In 2nd place is Girls’ Generation’s Yoona with 15.9%. She debuted with the group in 2007 and continues to promote with them until today. Since her debut, Yoona has spanned her skills into acting, appearing in such dramas as You Are My Destiny, Love Rain, and Cinderella Man.
JYP Entertainment power visual and miss A member Suzy takes in 3rd place with a close 15.4%.
