The Kpopalypse 2019 Objectification Survey results part 4 of 4 – MOST ATTRACTIVE MEN AND WOMEN in k-pop

It’s the final part of the 2019 Kpopalypse Objectification Survey results!  Who are the most attractive k-pop idols for 2019, according to Kpopalypse readers?  Let’s take a look!

The Kpopalypse 2019 Objectification Survey was an outstanding success, with more participation from the k-pop community than ever before!  Almost 900 people chose to cast a vote in this year’s survey, a truly amazing effort in mass objectification and depersonalisation of the idols we all love.

As per last year, voters were asked to choose up to three nominees in each category, best first.

  • 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 results across all categories. Note that tallies this year were computer-counted by a very kind and dedicated caonima, saving Kpopalypse lots of work, but this also means that you needed to read the instructions and vote more accurately and properly than ever before or your vote did not count.

The four results posts are as follows:

Part 1: FEMALE BOOBS and MALE ABS/TORSO – results here!

Part 2: FEMALE and MALE ASSES – results here!

Part 3: FEMALE and MALE LEGS – results here!

Part 4: OVERALL MOST ATTRACTIVE FEMALES and MALES – this post

Remember folks – that if you object to any of the choices here, you only have yourselves to blame as these were 100% your votes, not mine.  Kpopalypse does not even cast a vote – these are NOT my picks but YOURS, and this isn’t like a rigged Korean TV show where the “judges” get a say and can overturn fan opinion.  If you want to see a certain result, then it’s your responsibility to spread the surveys to the people who are going to vote for your faves!


 

MOST ATTRACTIVE WOMEN IN K-POP

#1 – TZUYU – TWICE

759 points

(2018 position – #3)

2019 has a brand new winner, with more Kpopalypse readers fancying Tzuyu than any other k-pop female.  Asa result, Tzuyu takes the top spot for the first time in the hotly-contested overall most attractive category!

#2 – SANA – TWICE

726 points

(2018 position – #4)

Trailing closely behind her groupmate, Sana also put on a very strong showing this year.

#3 – IRENE – RED VELVET

580 points

(2018 position – #1)

Last year’s winner Irene from Red Velvet was completely trounced by Team Twice this year but still made an impressive third place showing.

#4 – JIHYO – TWICE

540 points

(2018 position – #10)

Jihyo skyrocketed past many of her own groupmates in 2019, most likely on the back of much better styling than previous years.

#5 (TIED) – MINA/MOMO – TWICE

459 points

(Mina 2018 position – #6, Momo 2018 position – #5)

Usually when there’s a tie in the picture rankings I go searching for some fuzzy or less-than-ideally entered data to swing the result one way or the other, but there was no separating Mina and Momo this year, who both settled in on exactly the same score.  Who’s complaining?

#6 – SEOLHYUN – AOA

347 points

(2018 position – #2)

A previous consistent performer, Seolhyun still did well but dipped significantly compared to previous years due to her group’s relative inactivity.

#7 – NAYEON – TWICE

329 points

(2018 position – #13)

Everyone’s favourite softly-wrapped bunny made a big impression on Kpopalypse readers and moved up several places.

#8 – SEULGI – RED VELVET

327 points

(2018 position – #16)

The first entrant in this category to not make picture status in the previous year, Red Velvet’s Seulgi finally powered up into the top ten.

#9 – JOY – RED VELVET

297 points

(2018 position – #11)

Do the girls in Red Velvet still look pretty much the same to me these days?  Maybe a little, but one thing’s for sure, their objectification poll success is about the same!

#10 – JENNIE – BLACKPINK

219 points

(2018 position – #9)

Although she slipped slightly in both placings and votes, lots of Blackpink activity kept Jennie relevant amid the Twice/Red Velvet fapslaught of 2019.

#11 – YVES – LOONA

183 points

(2018 position – #28)

The first Loona member to ever attain coveted picture status in the most attractive females results shows that this new group is going places.  Just remember Loona fans, that if you had stanned Loona more and shared the survey when it was active, maybe the Twice domination of this category wouldn’t have happened.

#12 – IU

180 points

(2018 position – #8)

On the other hand IU is no stranger to being objectified, and doesn’t she know it all too well.  Her barely-concealed and completely justifiable hatred of all k-pop fans everywhere may have scared off a few votes this year, but she still was hot enough to maintain picture status anyway.

#13 – DAHYUN – TWICE

178 points

(2018 position – did not chart)

Trailing the picture rankings is Twice’s Dahyun, who shot up from absolutely nowhere last year, a hugely impressive effort.  Who knows how many rivers were killed with hair dye residue in the process of getting her that ranking, but it was probably worth the effort.

Now it’s time to take a look at the male category!  Who are the hottest k-pop guys in 2019?

MOST ATTRACTIVE MEN IN K-POP

#1 – JUNGKOOK – BTS

354 points

(2018 position – #1)

No dramatic upset for the front-runner this year, as BTS’ Jungkook easily scores the top category for the second year running, proof that BTS is in fact a k-pop.

#2 – V/TAEHYUNG – BTS

260 points

(2018 position – #3)

The previous second-in-place and longtime fan favourite BigBang’s T.O.P vacates picture status for the first time ever, gosh I can’t imagine why that could have happened.  Taehyung is the beneficiary, who moves up to claim his position.

#3 – WONHO – MONSTA X

224 points

(2018 position – #5)

It was a great year for Wonho across all categories, and it just goes to show that enjoying big anime tiddies is not harmful to a person’s health, career or fapability prospects.  He’s definitely earned himself a second lot of recommendations.

#4 – KAI – EXO

204 points

(2018 position – #7)

Kai remains an enduring favourite among Kpopalypse readers and this year he moves up.

#5 – SHOWNU – MONSTA X

187 points

(2018 position – #23)

Wherever Wonho was in the polls this year, groupmate Shownu was never far behind, and in 2019 he rocketed up to picture status in the overall category for the first time.

#6 – TAEMIN – SHINEE

165 points

(2018 position – #13)

Rising up several places this year, Taemin proved that the Kpopalypse objectification rankings aren’t just about youth, and that the older generation of stars have still got what it takes to be reduced to a piece of meat just like anybody else.  Go Taemin!

#7 – BAEKHYUN – EXO

146 points

(2018 position – #21)

It was an EXcellent year for EXO, maybe EXO actually stands for EXcellent Objectification?

#8 – EUNWOO – ASTRO

116 points

(2018 position – #11)

Although relatively unknown compared to the other big names on this list, Eunwoo proved that he has what it takes to stand with the biggest stars, at least as far as Kpopalypse reader preferences are concerned!

#9 – SHINDONG – SUPER JUNIOR

113 points

(2018 position – #8)

Speaking of big names, they don’t get much bigger than Super Junior’s Shindong, who maintains a top ten placing in a year that has felled many supposedly greater stars.

#10 – JIN – BTS

111 points

(2018 position – #10)

Jin isn’t quite as popular some of his groupmates, but still maintains his strong spot from last year, finishing our top ten most attractive males.

#11 – TAECYEON – 2PM

103 points

(2018 position – #27)

Taecyeon wasn’t super-active in 2019, but certainly hasn’t suffered in the polls at all for it, with a very impressive performance.

#12 – TAEYONG – NCT

98 points

(2018 position – #4)

I’m not sure why Taeyong dipped in the polls so much this year, but he still managed to squeeze in a picture placing as well as the best performance out of the numerous NCT members.

#13 – JAEHYUN – NCT

95 points

(2018 position – #22)

Meanwhile groupmate Jaehyun moves up fast, and finishes off our pictorial for this post and this series!  Will he eventually overtake Taeyong?  You’ll have to wait until 2020 to find out!

  1. I’m pretty intrigued by the appearance of Boyfriend’s Minwoo in the honorable mentions of these lists, since his group did virtually nothing in SK for the last two years and has disbanded.

  2. Your header pic text implying that Twice fans were more loyal to their faves, may be true, but we got good eye candy this year – all 13 are cute! I love my bunny Nayeon, Jenny is sweet, and I see Jihyo in a new light after she visited Yerin and they ate ice cream together…
