Now, who is the most popular star in China? Im Yoona or Song Joongi-ki?
While the Chinese entertainment industry stats indicate that the popularity of Girls’ Generation member Im Yoona is soaring past all records, Google search trends show that Song Joong-ki is the hottest online search.
According to an IBTimes report, Im Yoona outclasses Descendants of the Sun super-star Song Joong-ki in popularity in China. It said the actress recently defeated Song Joong-ki, in the Chinese popularity graph released by Chinese entertainment data analysis and consulting company Vlinkage. She is being highly applauded for her lead role as Zhao Yun on Hunan TV’s God of War.
Singer-actress Yoona is being showered with offers from production companies.
It seems the Love Rain actress is also one of the highest paid in the industry, charging 3 billion KRW (~$2,660,310) for a drama, as reported by AllKPop.
After Yoona recently performed in Happy Camp, Song Joong-ki has appeared in the variety show (click here to know more about Song Joong-ki and Happy Camp).
