The Kpopalypse 2017 Objectification Survey results part 4 of 4 – MOST ATTRACTIVE MEN AND WOMEN in k-pop

That’s right folks, it’s the final part of the results for the Kpopalypse 2017 Objectification survey!  Read on for the most attractive men and women in k-pop!

The 2017 Kpopalypse Objectification Survey used more categories and a new, more nuanced scoring system for greater objectification accuracy. Respondents were asked to list three people in each category, in preference order with best first. The scoring system was thus:

  • Your first choice was weighted 100% higher than your second choice
  • Your second choice was weighted 66% higher than your third choice
  • If you doubled or tripled on choices, only the first choice was counted
  • Choices after the third were disregarded in all cases

Scores were then tallied to give the final result across all categories. The four results posts are as follows:






#1 – CHOA – (EX) AOA

329 points

(2016 position – #3)

Maybe it was because she announced her departure from AOA right when the poll was underway, or maybe it was just because you couldn’t stop fapping, but whatever the reason, Choa cruised to an easy victory in the 2017 most attractive results.


268 points

(2016 position – #2)

Seolhyun maintained her position in the most attractive females survey this year, helping AOA to possibly the most relevant chart success of their career!


256 points

(2016 position – #6)

Yura did absolutely fuck all over the last 12 months, but Kpopalypse readers still had her pictures on their hard drive from last year, so it didn’t end up mattering.


254 points

(2016 position – #5)

Speaking of doing sweet fuck all, nobody has seen Nana outside the modelling photo studio over the last year, but you all decided that’s probably the best place for her anyway.


196 points

(2016 position – #1)

The biggest shock for 2017 was Hyosung dropping all the way from last year’s decisive lead to fifth place in 2017.  Given her commanding lead in the boobs category proved that it certainly wasn’t a case of readers forgetting that Hyosung existed, it just goes to show that boobs do not maketh the woman for Kpopalypse readers (at least not completely).


155 points

(2016 position – #11)

As Kpopalypse was vindicated in the struggle to clear T-ara’s name, Jiyeon enjoyed a big popularity boost after her post-snake bite venom recovery.  Meanwhile twin snakes Hwayoung and Hyoyoung were not voted for by a single person this year (although Hwayoung did receive a measly 5 points in 2016).


149 points

(2016 position – #22)

Unlike many others in this list, the members of Twice didn’t mess around and waste any time over the last twelve months, and the results of their hard work paid off with Tzuyu rocketing into the top ten.  By the way, Tzuyu recently turned 18, I thought the nutter who wrote “NO MINORS” for the answer to every single survey question might like to know this.


148 points

(2016 position – #40)

Red Velvet were another group that actually did stuff in 2017, and Seulgi was the beneficiary as far as the Kpopalypse readers survey was concerned.  Wait, that IS Seulgi, right?


137 points

(2016 position – #8)

A consistent all-rounder in the reader polls who scored well in every category, Hyomin was overtaken by groupmate Jiyeon but still maintained a top ten position overall.


136 points

(2016 position – #9)

Punching well above her weight in the popularity-to-voting ratio, Kyungri also managed to sneak back into the top ten this year.  I don’t know what animal died to make that coat, but whatever it was, if it died in that position it died happy.

#11 – MOMO – TWICE

131 points

(2016 position – #7)

While no longer the most popular Twice member for readers overall, Momo still made a strong showing in the survey this year.

#12 – HANI – EXID

129 points

(2016 position – #13)

Although she resembles the Hani of a few years ago only in name, the new upgraded Hani still proved that she had the capability to make an impression on Kpopalypse readers.

#13 – SANA – TWICE

120 points

(2016 position – #37)

With a record three members in the overall most attractive results, Twice’s status as the group ready to finally eclipse Girls’ Generation (who didn’t even make a showing in the top 20 this year) is confirmed, despite the fact that I still can’t tell Sana apart from half the other members.


#14 – Sulli – (ex) f(x)

#15 – Hyuna – (ex) 4Minute

#16 – Krystal – f(x)

#17 – IU

#18 – Cheng Xiao – WJSN (Cosmic Girls)

#19 – Jennie – Blackpink

#20 – Eunjung – T-ara

#21 – Mina – Twice

#22 – Suzy – miss A

#23 – Taeyeon – Girls’ Generation

#24 – Irene – Red Velvet

#25 – Chaeyeon – DIA

#26 – Hwasa – Mamamoo

#27 – Lee Hyori

#28 – Gain – Brown Eyed Girls

#29 – Joy – Red Velvet

#30 – Arin – Oh My GIrl

#31 – Victoria – f(x)

#32 – Yooa – Oh My Girl

#33 – Yuri – Girls’ Generation

#34 – Nayoung – Pristin

#35 – Eunha – Gfriend

#39 – Jihyo – Twice

#40 – Rose – Blackpink

#41 – Mina – AOA

#42 – Jimin – AOA

#43 – Luna – f(x)

#44 – Raina – After School/Orange Caramel


#1 – T.O.P – BIGBANG

255 points

(2016 position – #1)

You know all that stuff your parents told you about how drugs are bad for you and will ruin your future?  Well, that’s all bullshit as T.O.P proved this year by coming in again at first position in the most attractive men results.  A little bit of weed clearly isn’t going to do you any harm, kids – just don’t get caught.


200 points

(2016 position – #8)

Kpopalypse readers were serious about voting for Wonho in 2017, with the Monsta X member polling respectably in all categories.  I don’t really understand the reasoning behind it, but as long as my readers are happy and fapping comfortably, all is well.


173 points

(2016 position – #4)

Although an older group, SHINee remained an enduring popular choice among Kpopalypse readers and Minho again placed highly in the polls.


162 points

(2016 position – #2)

As the star of BTS rises into the stratosphere, Jungkook oddly took a slight dip in popularity from Kpopalypse readers.  Could it be backlash against his newfound success, or perhaps there’s just too much hot competition?  Who knows, but at least Jungkook is prepared above with water bottles to quench the thirst of survey voters.

#5 – TAEYONG – NCT 127

152 points

(2016 position – did not chart)

The breakout performer in this category for 2017 was Taeyong, who blasted straight into the top ten this year.  In 2016, Taeyong only managed a dismal four points, meaning that back then he wasn’t even in the top two hundred!  Whatever changed between now and then I don’t know, but clearly he is in danger of becoming the biggest fap on the stage.


126 points

(2016 position – #14)

Infinite haven’t been as active this year as previously, but L managed to work his way into the top ten anyway, beating out plenty of stiff competition despite the fact that Infinite have been doing very little of late.

#7 – JIMIN – BTS

125 points

(2016 position – #3)

Another BTS member who suffered in the overall attractiveness category, Jimin is still the king of k-pop ass but failed to dominate the main rankings as much as usual.


124 points

(2016 position – #19)

Note to SM Entertainment: fee to remove this entry from the list is $400 in Patreon donations per month for the next 13 years.  Note that I’ve made this about the same salary and time period as an SM Entertainment idol contract, this is for your bookkeeping convenience.  Just think of Kpopalypse as another trainee.

#9 – KAI – EXO

115 points

(2016 position – #11)

EXO were a group that took a big popularity dive in the polls this year overall, however Kai was the exception to the rule and actually managed to increase his placing.

#10 – JIN – BTS

101 points

(2016 position – #30)

Jin also performed impressively this year, attaining a top ten placing for the first time in any Kpopalypse category.


97 points

(2016 position – #13)

Wherever Wonho is in a Kpopalypse poll, it seems groupmate Shownu is never too far away.  It seems that you loved his perfect imperfections.

#12 – V – BTS

81 points

(2016 position – #17)

When I was growing up V was some TV show about green lizard space aliens or whatever the fuck.  Now V is some guy in a k-pop boy group who half of my readers beat their lizard over.  The more things change, the more they stay the same.

#13 – Mingyu – Seventeen

79 points

(2016 position – did not chart)

Seventeen are a group whose fortunes have been increasing rapidly – Mingyu didn’t even hit double-digit points last year but here he is, scraping into the top 13, and finishing off this list.


#14 – Jackson – GOT7

#15 – Rain

#16 – Siwon – Super Junior

#17 – Shindong – Super Junior

#18 – Baekhyun – EXO

#19 – Dongho – Nuest

#20 – JB – Got7

#21 – Suga – BTS

#22 – Kyungil – (ex) History

#23 – Jonghyun – SHINee

#24 – Suho – EXO

#25 – Sunyu – Infinite

#26 – Chen – EXO

#27 – Taecyeon – 2PM

#28 – Heechul – Super Junior

#29 – Kang Daniel – Wanna One

#30 – Jang Moonbok

#31 – Lay – EXO

#32 – Eunwoo – Astro

#33 – PSY

#34 – Nickhyun – 2PM

#35 – Taemin – SHINee

#36 – Zico – Block B

#37 – J.Seph – KARD

#38 – N/Hakyeon – VIXX

#39 – Sehun – EXO

#40 – Changmin – TVXQ

  1. It is true that beauty is in the eye of the beholder but… Truly, people really do have trash taste. The gals ranking is accurate enough but the guys one is a mess. Some uglies in the top ten I’m laughing

  2. I’m LOL! At your wonderful pic of our dear sweet Umji, adorably holding a rabbit – your sleight of hand with the caption is priceless. 🙂 Most of the top women are truly awesome, and I’m glad Eunha placed, she is a lovely gem.

  3. Huh, I didn’t even think to vote for the obvious ones: Shindong, PSY and Jang Moonbok. Glad to see the fellers in the top 40 though! I’d unstan Suho and Hyungwon for them anytime,,,sorry lads

  4. lmao this list is wak you guys are high xD

    Good touch tho, throwing in some diversity of age with Psy and Sojin 🙂

    I forgot to vote but Eunjung and Jessica are number 1 and 1. Males are Rain>TOP>Kpopalypse>shindong.
