top 10 people of 2009, according to 10Asia

In the entertainment industry, the end of a year is a season about watching and talking about “people”. Many media outlets select their “person of the year” and people flock to year-end awards shows to hear a quote from stars that they do not get to see often. <10Asia> picked our own figures of the year, but there is no red carpet or photo spotlights for the stars to enter upon. Our selection of “persons of 2009” are not top stars who attained the most popularity from the public, but people who changed the landscape of Korea’s entertainment industry and stimulated the public with experiences that we had not had before.

Here are ten people who showed us a new direction for upcoming 2010.Collapse )

... Lee Minho? I'm sorry what? I get that BOF was huge but then again they could've just named KHJ then.

The real opponent of this young skater may be the history of figure skating, not Asada Mao or Joannie Rochette.
Oh you SO did not just diss a fellow Montrealer of mine right there. >:o

LMAO MY LITTLE SISTER'S REACTION:
Sis: Lee Minho? He was part of BOF?
Me: Hm?
S: LMH was in BOF?
M: ...
S: *blinks*
M: ... he was the main dude.
S: ... oooooh.
M: *gives her a look*
S: BUT I NEVER WATCHED IT!
M: WELL NEITHER HAVE I!
S: ... *runs off*

IDGI As frustrating of a drama as it was, BOF was this massive phenomena that stretched over purely pure kdrama fandom. Music that was related to it was popular, its stars were used to promote practically everything, and it was picked up in basically every Asian country lol

It was a breakout hit, so IDK why LMH is getting lots of "WTF" comments. It's like people denying "Gee" being a phenomena because it was just "catchy".

i like all the 10 people on the list except i hope the producer of bof will think give extra attention for scriptwriter/directing/etc if he want to produce another korean remake of jdrama

lee minho come out when korean doesn't have many fresh actor,so he's get many attention,i think:)

Yesss, Kim C! I'm glad he's getting some recognition.

Really Lee Minho? BOF was big, but I don't think it was that groundbreaking...

Also, Seunggi has no anti-fans? Whoa.

I like this list.
chibi_rei 27th-Dec-2009 06:03 am (UTC)
omg Teddy without a hat or hoodle or that awful awful hat/hoodie combo. He looks good!
akaich0u 27th-Dec-2009 06:07 am (UTC)
Lee Seung Gi is SUCH a sweetheart.

I'm happy for Teddy but there could be a negative side to this...he might be so encouraged to just write/produce forever that 1TYM may never come back :( :( Nooo Teddy bb you are a great rapper too T_T
akaich0u 27th-Dec-2009 06:11 am (UTC)
Oh, as much as I love Teddy though, I need to disagree with this line: This year, Teddy was the “trendsetter” amongst all the prominent songwriters and producers in Korea.

Sorry, but that title still belongs to JYP. I don't think the fashion or image should create the music--it should be the other way around. The music should create the image, because it should be music first. JYP didn't think, "oh let's make 2PM have a manly image, so I'll write this song." It was BECAUSE he wrote that song that 2PM came to gain that image...

idk I feel schizophrenic about 2NE1 lately because while I'm a fan and commend them on many levels, them being as recognized for "fashion" as they are for music is meh. I know it's not entirely their fault but people need to put the music above image...journalists, stylists and producers alike. :|

When I saw Lee Minho, I wonder why he can make it to the list. Then I saw Teddy, and i think why this list even makes sense.
goldengutgirl 27th-Dec-2009 06:30 am (UTC)
What an awesome list. I got goosebumps with Seunggi and Byunghun and wat omg hey Teddy wassup
