Yoo Ah In Named Movie Actor of The Year in The 2015 Gallup Korea Survey
It’s the time of the year when authorities, media and the likes released the year-end list, and this one is pure people power speaking.
On December 15, the most trustworthy and powerful research institution Gallup Korea revealed the results of its “People Koreans Like the Most” year end survey for most popular entertainers in the four major categories: movies, dramas, variety, and music.
Gallup Korea polled over 2,000 Koreans, asking people aged 13 and up to name their top three favorite Korean celebrities. A total of 1,700 people aged 13 or older participated in the survey, which was conducted in an interview format.
The poll has a 95% confidence level with a sample error of plus or minus 2.4% points. Topping the list of the categories are who the domestic Korean audiences loved in 2015.
No surprise to many (nope, it is totally predictable, folks!), Yoo Ah In has been picked as the Most Outstanding Movie Actor of the Year, a.k.a the best a.k.a the most loved movie star of the year in this domestic survey.
