    Korea Real Time is just two months old but we decided to join the grand tradition of news organizations everywhere that rank top stories at the end of the year.

    This blog is produced by the 15 Seoul-based reporters, editors and translators of the Journal and Dow Jones Newswires. All but two are South Korean, so we think our yearend list is a good look at how Koreans feel about the news of the year.

    We also decided to show you our vote totals. Each vote for first place got 10 points, meaning, with 15 voters, the maximum a story or topic could get was 150 points. Each vote for second got 9 points and so on.

    - omitted -

    10. Girl Power, 30 points

    This wasn’t vote-manipulated just so we could put a picture of Girls’ Generation in this post, but the group does have plenty of fans in our office. Their popularity overseas (the first Korean group to sellout a stadium in Japan) is the latest twist in what’s known here as the “Korean Wave,” the export of South Korean culture. And it’s not just in Asia. SM Entertainment, the label that has the Girls and several other K-pop stars, filled Staples Center in Los Angeles with its “dream lineup” for several nights this summer. Gee, gee, gee.
