Public Music Sound has conducted a survey to find out the “Korean Music Power 100″ among 86 music critics, reporters, musicians and music producers.
SM Entertainment‘s head Lee Soo Man took first place, followed by JYP Entertainment‘s Park Jinyoung and YG Entertainment‘s Yang Hyunsuk to round up the top three. It is unsurprising that these three took the top three spots as they are, after all, the heads of the three biggest entertainment agencies in Korea.
Artists in the list includes veteran artist Seo Taiji at fifth, Asia’s top girl group SNSD at 14th, Big Bang, who had recently made their comeback, at 28th, international star Rain at 51st, TVXQ at 70th, 2NE1 at 80th and BoA at 92nd. Other veteran artists, who made the list includes Shin Joong Hyun, Jo Yong Pil, Kim Chang Wan, Kim Min Ki and many others.
Broadcasting stations were also placed in the list and Mnet was placed 4th, MBC in 6th, KBS in 17th and SBS in 18th. Online music sites such as MelOn came in 9th, Bugs! in 35th, Apple in 49th and Dosirak at 69th.
