So who was picked to be the prettiest?

First, they asked foreigners living in Korea to pick out their favorites. The reporter wore a shirt with the faces of 18 female idol stars and walked around the streets of Itaewon. The first interviewee, an American, praised that Hyoyeon was prettier than Yoona. Some picked SNSD, others picked Wonder girls, while some wandered off to IU and Lee Hyori. But among this, the one that was most consistently voted on was Youbin of Wonder girls.

This trend continued even in the first overseas round of interviews in South Africa, Turkey, and Kazakhstan.

After wrapping up the survey in France, Italy, America, Wonder girls Youbin placed 1st with 77 points, followed by SNSD Seohyun with 71 points, and 2NE1 Sandara Park with 57 points.

You bin said "I'm so honored to be picked out of all the other pretty girls. I think many foreigners prefer tanned skin and it probably helped that I don't particularly try to maintain a fair complexion."
