The ten most influential entrepreneurs included Korea Football Association President Chung Mong-joon, Samsung Group Chairman Lee Kun-hee, Kumho Asiana Chairman Park Sam-koo and SM Entertainment President Lee Soo-man.

The most influential South Korean celebrities included singer Rain, actor Lee Joon-gi and actresses Song Hye-kyo and Jun Ji-hyun.
