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.”


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.
