This Idol Is More Popular Than BTS, Despite Having Debuted A Very Long Time Ago

No, that’s not a typo.

Korean netizens have pointed out there is a top idol who has been trending for a lot longer than any other K-Pop idol.


Based on Google search terms, the three top idols are Taylor SwiftBTS… and Jesus.

Interest over time


And netizens are running with the joke, showing off Jesus’s ability to garner attention from millions throughout history…

  • “Crazy, look at His resilience, the best at gathering media attention.”


His ongoing popularity in books and movies…

  • “Our oppa’s aggregated sales is also the wall, the one top ㄷㄷ”


And the fantastic fanart his stans have produced over the years.

  • “Take a look at our oppa’s fan art”


Fans are also praising his “light stick”!

  • “Simplicity is everything. Oh and for those wondering ‘where is the light I only see a stick’ the only light you need is Jesus.”


And pointing out his birthday ads, as designed by fandoms.


Netizens are just laughing at the OP and conceding the truth with jokes.

  • “ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ that’s hilariousㅋㅋㅋ debuted for 2018 yearsㅋㅋㅋ”
  • “That’s why He’s God…”
  • “You have to acknowledge Him ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅌㅌ”
  • “As expected from the global one top”
  • “He has freaking lots of trolls too”
  • “As expected from Godㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ that’s why we call Him God”
  • “Our Jesus oppa has so many sasaengs and trolls, can you trolls stop making false rumors about our Jesus oppa????”
  • “Everyone knows about my oppa’s birthday, right?”
  • “He only had one comeback though. When’s his second coming? He must be under YG.”
  • “Give him a break, he did work on his repackage in every language of this world and had no pronunciation problems while other celebs struggle with only two languages.”
  • “Oppa should always get props for continuing to sing in Latin even though literally no one speaks it anymore.”
  • “I hear the second comeback will be of apocalyptic proportions. All of your faves will be SHAKING.”


In addition, many K-Pop idols are Christians, adding to Jesus’ status as the top of the top as even idols themselves worship him.

JYJ’s Jaejoong is one idol who shows his religious beliefs through jewellery.


While it’s nothing more than a fun post, going by these results, BTS is second only to Jesus!
