BIGBANG, IU and Super Junior Make Top 10
Is PSY the Jennifer Lopez of Korea? According to Forbes, that may be true. The full list for Forbes Korea's "2013 Power Celebrity 40" was revealed this week with PSY unsurprisingly taking the top spot. He snatches the No. 1 position from Girls' Generation who held it for two years and now settle in at No. 2.
The Forbes Korea list is created based on earnings, influence, reputation and professionalism. The ranking methodology is just like the U.S. Forbes "Celebrity 100" list that Lopez topped last year.
PSY shines in the categories not only for the huge amount he earned from his worldwide “Gangnam Style” promotions, but also from always representing South Korea in a positive light like shouting out his country when on Ellen DeGeneres (below).
