SISTAR, Women of the Year?

According to MNet, Korean girl group SISTAR “is capping off a stellar year with its designation as GQ Korea’s Women of the Year” in their upcoming December issue.

The story added that GQ Korea chose them “after careful deliberation.”

Not so, says the Joongang Ilbo:

According to the magazine yesterday, the girl group was picked “because there were not many other options.”

Ouch.

Whatever the reason, congrats ladies.

As for the Men of the Year:

Kim Ki Duk, the director of the award-winning and critically-acclaimed Pieta, Psy, whose Gangnam Style took the world by storm this year, and Yu Jun Sang, who established himself as ‘the nation’s husband’ through his highly popular role on KBS’ Unexpected You.

    Love those Dunham chins. Malia Obama must have quite a following in Korea.

    I’d like to see the opinions of Pawi and TheKorean on this, since they are hardcore fans of everything Korean, doesn’t matter what.

    It is truly disappointing that someone says “because there were not many other options” when it comes to women in Korea. Maybe Psy is ok due to his fantastic success for the men’s category, but those chopstick legs girls for the women’s award? What did they accomplish?

    Sistar can be “Women of the Year” until PGH wins the election.
    Then they can give the title to PGH. Ha

    If Girl #3 is presented as the racy one, I’m with her.
