    This year’s FORBES KOREA Power Celebrity List ranks Korea’s top 40 stars using the following factors: the most-searched names on South Korea’s Internet portals; the celebs’ annual income and donations to charity; number of endorsements; mentions in Korean and international media; and the number of magazine cover appearances. We list the Top 20 below(Showing Only Top 8)

    1. Girls Generation •SINGERS
    The 9-member girl group managed by SM Entertainment dominated offline, online music charts, while taking over the silver screen. In 2010 Girls Generation sold over 270,000 albums and appeared in 25 commercials, as well as making appearances on the variety shows of every major network in Korea.


    2. Park Ji-Sung • FOOTBALL PLAYER
    Manchester United player and recently retired captain of the Korean National Football Team, Park was applauded for his top performance in 2010 South Africa World Cup and the Asian Cup. With Man U Park had a record 6 goals last season.

    3. Yuna Kim •FIGURE SKATER
    There is no doubt that Yuna Kim was the brightest star in last year’s Winter Olympics. After winning the gold she went on to gain 28 endorsement deals, but her break from longtime coach Brian Orser set her back in the rankings for the most sought-after endorsement model.

    4. Lee Seung-Gi •SINGER
    The actor, singer and variety show host raked in trophies from all major networks in 2010. His hit TV drama, My Gumiho, earned bragging rights after hitting average ratings of 21.3%.

    5. 2PM •SINGERS
    The 6-member boy band from JYP Entertainment is famous not only for its performance and catchy tunes but also for the band members’ chiseled bodies. Recently members have been receiving much-wanted attention for their acting roles and reality show appearances.

    6. Yu Jae-Seok •TV PERSONALITY
    Korea’s King of Talk is arguably the most popular man on prime-time TV, but last year the management agency that represented him—and many of the Top 20 celebs—filed for bankruptcy, causing scandal.

    7. Lee Chung-Yong •FOOTBALL PLAYER
    Ranked No. 83 in the European Premier League, Lee is currently the midfielder for the Bolton Wanderers. He had 4 goals and 6 assists in last year’s Asian Cup and earned approximately 3 billion won.

    8. 2AM •SINGERS
    The 4-member boy band may not have bodies as chiseled as those of their 2PM boy band counterparts, but their harmonious melodies are as good at warming the hearts of fans across Asia. Leader Jo Kwon has been dominating the variety shows, showing fans that his wit matches his voice.
