After four rounds and over 5.2 million votes, the 2014 Goddess of Asia poll has ended with f(x) leader Victoria on top.
The yearly poll began on May 1 with 100 Asian celebrities, and over the course of months, was narrowed down to 10 'Goddesses of Asia.' According to Chinese website nvshen.ddyule.cn, the top 10 will be featured on the cover page of a top Chinese magazine, in addition to having the status established across all of Asia for the year.
This year, Victoria Song of the K-pop girl group f(x) made it to the top of the poll with 579,298 votes. She beat last year's top Goddess, Yoona of Girls' Generation, who came in at number five. Victoria's bandmate Krystal also came in at number ten.
After voting ended on July 20, many Victoria and f(x) fans congratulated the idol on the feat.
"Congratulations Victoria for becoming a 'Goddess of Asia' this year," tweeted Muliana on Twitter on July 20.
On July 8, Victoria made a guest appearance on "Jessica & Krystal," a reality series featuring Jessica of Girls' Generation and Krystal of f(x). During the segment, Victoria expressed her doubts on the prospect of marriage.
"First of all, I'm picky," said Victoria. "I'm not a perfectionist, but if something bothers me even a little bit, I'm the type that speaks up."
But, as evidenced by becoming a "Goddess of Asia," Victoria clearly has many supporters who love her.
"Don't worry Victoria, there's a lot of people in this world who already love you," commented Aiyugwiyeweo on allkpop.
"I believe you will find your true love one day and live happily ever after," wrote Shineefxthebest on July 9. "Don't worry about marriage, you are still quite young."
Recently, f(x) made their comeback with a new album "Red Light," achieving instant success with their eponymous single. Reportedly, the group topped the weekly music charts the week of July 7 to July 13 in both Korea and Taiwan.
