Recommended Posts

Forbes Korea Power Celebrity 40

 

Basic Background (credits to DRAGONLY0915@ONEHALLYU for this part)
Forbes Celebrity 40 is determined by first taking the top 100 most searched people of the year (data provided by Nate) and ranking them based on 4 different measures:
1. Sales - estimated based on appearance fees, CF guarantees album sales, etc. + reported overseas income
2. Media exposure - number of apperances in the top 3 newspapers, covers of 8 magazines, Ilgan Sports
3. Television exposure - CF model ranking and appearances on talk shows and variety shows
4. Professionalism - TV ratings for actors/MCs, total audience for movie actors, Gaon digital and physical sales rankings for singers, competition results for athletes
Final list is the 40 celebrities with the highest average ranking across all 4 categories.
*Note that sales especially are subject to error because data may not always be complete.

Not that weird iirc 2NE1 strangely were low in the list.

They were 24th last year (SISTAR never got in the ranking besides this year) and are 17th is year which is good I guess.

Not really. Forbes always has some janked up rankings and random criteria for these lists.
