In Europe also, “I Am The Best” got 23% of the votes, while “The Boys” got 12%.

The question about looks also garnered different results in the different continents. When asked which star had the best appearance2NE1 member, Sandara Park, ranked as number 1, with 24.5% of the votes, while Super Junior member, Lee Teuk, came in second, with 22.2% of the votes. Asia and Europe had the same results, with Sandara Park on top, but in North and Latin America, Lee Teuk came out as the top star, with 23.7% of the votes.

For the “Female Hallyu star with the most perfect body” survey question, 4Minute member HyunA got the most votes with 13.9%, followed by SNSD’s Yuri, and After School’s UEE. In Asia however, UEE and Yuri both got number 1, followed by Yuri, and actress Shin Min Ah was also voted on top. In Europe, HyunA, Yuri, and Sistar member, Hyorin, ranked respectively.
