Google Korea on Monday released a top 10 list of the most-searched words in the first half of this year, as well as the most popular entries in each category including TV programs and celebrities.
No. 1 on the overall list was the hugely popular animation "Pororo the Little Penguin", followed by the MBC show "Infinite Challenge". Ryu Hyun-jin, a pitcher for the Los Angeles Dodgers in Major League Baseball, was third.
Two songs by Psy helped fill out the rest of the top 10, which was as follows: "Gangnam Style"; actor Park Si-hoo; the movie "Masquerade"; Ultimate Fighting Championship Octagon girl Kang Ye-bin; "Gentleman"; figure skater Kim Yu-na; and the Japanese animation "Attack on Titan".
Some adult-only keywords were excluded from the list.
The most-searched personalities were Ryu, Park Si-hoo, Kang Ye-bin, Kim Yu-na and TV personality Clara. Park became embroiled in an ugly scandal in February when he was accused of rape; Kang was named Korea's first UFC Octagon Girl in October; and Clara recently made headlines with her sexy fashion style.
"Infinite Challenge" was the most-searched TV program.
