This Saudi Arabian-born, Filipino-German fashion model is the first Pinay to win Asia’s Next Top Model. No wonder she made it to this list of most Googled. During the show, she received criticism alongside the praises and high scores but got through everything unscathed—with the champion prize and the coveted title.
LEE SUNG KYUNG
How can we not forget our darling Bok Joo from the breakthrough K-drama Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo? Lee Sung Kyung made headlines again after announcing her reel-to-real relationship with co-star Nam Joo Hyuk, and eventually after when they broke up.
YG girl group BLACKPINK’s 2017 hit As If It’s Your Last became a popular summer song last year. It has been reported that the song’s MV was the fastest ever to exceed 10 million views on YouTube—already 11 million views in just 17 hours!. It also became the most liked video by a Korean girl group on YouTube.
MARIEL DE LEON
It’s not surprising to have yet another beauty queen in the Philippines’ list of Most Googled Female Personalities. Mariel De Leon was our Miss International 2017 candidate, and while she failed to win the crown, she definitely made headlines for her public comments regarding blogger Mocha Uson. The daughter of actors Christopher De Leon and Sandy Andolong also starred with Coco Martin in Ang Panday.
