Korea’s largest online polling site, ipoll (www.ipoll.kr), has gained much popularity amongst netizens. Members of the poll site are able to post their own polls and also have various polls to pick their favorite artistes and also to determine the ranking of celebrities in terms of popularity.
The theme of the poll was ‘ The Battle of the Fans’, to choose the group who have the highest popularity. This was an extension was last year’s “ The Battle of the fans: Just how much do they love their idols?”. From 12 February 2010 to 21 March 2010, through semi-finals till the finals, the fans of the various artistes went all out for their favorite idols’ rankings on the poll. The results of the poll have been announced, with Super Junior in first place, followed by DBSK and F.T. Island.
The largest controversy for this poll was that last year’s winner SS501 was surprisingly out of the top three. All of the groups on ipoll, no matter how long since their debut, had similar popularity and were all strong competitors. Thus, the winner for the poll could not be predicted.
The winner, Super Junior, was also one of the strongest competitions running for top place last year. Super Junior had fans who were very bonded, no matter whether they were from korea or were international fans. The fan clubs all over the world had friendly relations and because of the teamwork between all the fans and how they participated in the polls actively voting for their favorite group, Super Junior was able to clinch the top place in this poll.
