Hottest Keywords in Kpopmap in 2020

It is time to look at our hottest keywords this year. "Webtoon", "Romance", "Drama", "Web Drama", "K-Drama recommendation", "Watchlist", "K-Drama filming locations", "Actress lipsticks", and "Most searched K-Dramas" were one of the most popular keywords this year on Kpopmap. Webtoon and web dramas starring idols are one of the key interests of Kpopmap readers. Also, the vote Suzy & Nam JooHyuk or Suzy & Kim SeonHo received a lot of attention.

 

Constantly Popular Actors in Kpopmap in 2020

You would know that in Kpopmap, we have a lot of K-Pop and K-Drama fans so actors and acting-dols are similarly popular. Also, actors are more popular than actresses overall.

In this part, we are looking at another type of data. It is a little overview of Kpopmap readers' taste this year. At the difference of the ranking (weekly and yearly) above who shows who had received the most views, this data show more the constant interest and popularity. It is based on vote results, views, comments, Twitter retweets, Facebook likes and shares, and other social media factors.

For example, Nam JooHyuk and Kim SeonHo are topping the ranking above because of their massive popularity with "Start-Up" when it aired but were not as popular at other times on Kpopmap (and never make it to the number 1 in our weekly ranking). However, other actors such as Lee MinHo and Cha EunWoo were popular all the years (drama airing or not), they have constant popularity.
