Who rose and who fell in popularity rankings in 2015?

The Top Ten

1 Taeyeon (Kim Tae Yeon)

Taeyeon's individual fan cafe alone is bigger than SNSD's combined. Not to mention her solo debut was explosive and broke three records- for most views gained by a solo artist (female) in 24 hours, and most albums sold by a female soloist, as well as best solo debut sales and Melon roof hits, nearly beating Big Bang's 36 roof hits. Taeyeon's adorkable, childish personality, shy and introverted but cute and loving self, and powerful voice and baby face has earned her millions of fans worldwide. - KPopCritic

Taeyeon has such a amazing voice, it's like that of an angel's. Besides being cute, dorky and funny, she is also beautiful and talented. She puts other before herself. Like how she always hides her sadness behind a smile because she is afraid that she'll burden the rest of the group if they see her down since she's the leader and all. She's so selfless and perfect. I love her so much. QUEEN TAE

I love Taeyeon, she's adorable and very lovely, besides being cute. She's the best for me and I insist you love her a lot. It's a good person and she also has a wonderful and beautiful voice.

2 Yoona (Im Yoona)

While she isn't very popular outside of Asia, Yoona's fanbase in China, Korea, and Japan are enormous. She is one of the richest female celebrities due to her natural, flawless beauty that all Asians would die for, earning her endless modeling and acting jobs. Yoona's fan cafe is the second largest in Korea, following Taeyeon. While she is the least popular in Europe and the USA, she is moderately popular in South America and wildly popular in Asia. - KPopCritic

Well, in Malaysia she's the most famous one. Also in Japan. In Korea, she's the 2nd following Taeyeon. She is famous in China also. I don't know about Indonesia. Well, I think she's the most famous in Asia. Seohyun and Taeyeon also. I thought that Western peeps don't really like Yoona. They don't know to calculate her beauty because they aren't Asian. Sorry bad English.

Yoona is the most popular because she is such a hard-working, caring, talented (she is an ace in all things) and gorgeous person both in and out that you can't not like her. She is considered by many a role model. She shines a lot among her peers.

She's perf to me.. that's all

3 Seohyun (Seo Joo Hyun)

At first I didn't like Seohyun but I was wrong because when I started to watched videos on Instagram post that I'm much attached me to her. She's a good manage and I love her voice. I'm with you Seohyun and continues to give the best of you. Fighting!

The maknae of SNSD, Seohyun has practically taken over the role of SNSD's leader and guide, and has solidified her spot as the second best vocalist in SNSD after Jessica's exit. Seohyun's natural beauty, pure and innocent soul, heart of gold, and angelic voice have earned her an enormous fan base. Her immense dancing, acting, and singing talent, sexy body and cute, cheeky self have made her popular not just in Korea, but internationally as well. - KPopCritic

Most beautiful and simple girl from snsd with the. Best fashion sense

She was very cute and pretty. She was my biaswrecker and Taeyeon was my bias. Taeyeon may be my bias but I love and support every member of SNSD. And Seohyun is, I'd say was a perfect maknae who acts like an unnie than Taeyeon. Haha cause she is mature and very supportive while Taeyeon is playful and cheerful. What I also like about her is that her voice is unique, cool and stable that makes everyone look at her while performing and uneasy to look away because of her visual, natural aegyo appearance, voice, and appeal to them. It's just so sad that Seohyun has leaved SNSD and SM Entertainment. I still hope that someday, if they're given a chance to perform.. They will choose to perform as SNSD. Jessica, Yuri, Yoona, Seohyun, Taeyeon, Tiffany, Sunny, Hyoyeon, Sooyoung, the perfect original Girls Generation that is Nation's Girl Group.

4 Tiffany (Hwang Min Young) Tiffany (Hwang Min Young) Stephanie Young Hwang, known professionally as Tiffany, Tiffany Hwang or Tiffany Young, is an American singer.

The adorable American-raised Tiffany places fourth, as she is the fourth most popular in Asia, and very popular in the USA and Canada. While she's closer to the middle of the popularity ladder in Europe and South America, overall Tiffany has always been one of the top four most popular SNSD members. Her flawless, natural beauty. cute eye smile and bright, positive personality have earned her a big following. - KPopCritic

Tiffany is so cool! She can sing better than many other members, and her singing is just so moving and addictive. She dances well too. She is also very pretty and has a special part in her that makes her so unique.

Come on! Just admit that Tiffany is just so good! Maybe she is still not as good as other members but she is trying. Just go watch I Just Wanna Dance and Heartbreak Hotel, you will be addicted for months and months. Tiffany Hwang!

Tiffany is more popular than Seohyun.

5 Sooyoung (Choi Sooyoung) Sooyoung (Choi Sooyoung) Choi Soo-young (born February 10, 1990), better known by the mononym Sooyoung, is a South Korean singer and actress. She was a part of the short-lived Korean-Japanese singing duo, Route θ, during 2002 in Japan. After returning to South Korea in 2004, Sooyoung eventually became a member of girl group ...read more.

By far the most popular member outside of Asia, Sooyoung is the most popular in Europe and the USA, very popular in South American, but slightly closer to the bottom in popularity in Asia, which brings her to a solid spot at number five on the list. Her exotic, baby-faced natural beauty has made her one of the most beautiful women in Europe/America, and her hilarious, funny personality and amazing acting has boosted her fan count this year. - KPopCritic

One that marked me in the group is well Sooyoung, especially in " I got a boy" ( this is the first video I watched). Everything about her pleases me and even her sense of style! While I strive to other members, Sooyoung will always my number one. I wish that happiness and also a lot of courage. Give the best to show everyone what you can do.

Her nice voice, her funny personality and her beautiful face made me fall in love with her

She's really pretty and humble at the same time. I love my ult bias

6 Hyoyeon (Kim Hyo Yeon)

While Hyoyeon is the least popular member in Asia, her Asian popularity rose with her variety show, Hyo's 100 Mill Likes. Even better, Hyoyeon is consistently the most popular member in Europe, South America and the USA along with Sooyoung and Sunny. While she is wildly popular overseas, her Asian popularity is too low to place her any higher than #6. - KPopCritic

Hyoyeon is cute the first time I saw her I completely fall in love

Like the way of her being

Hyoyeon is the most dedicated member in SNSD, even though she doesn’t have stunning visuals of singing skills, her dancing is considered as one of the most talented female dancer in KPOP. She’s not as popular as the other members in Asia due to her appearance (not ideal to Asian beauty standard), but her exotic look, sexy image, and stunning dancing skills granted her a large fan base overseas, especially in Europe, where she is treated as the queen. Based these reasons, I think her overall popularity would be around 5 and 6.

7 Yuri (Kwon Yu Ri)

While Yuri had a great deal of variety shows, her international popularity remained low, keeping her at the bottom and least popular member in Europe, the USA, and South America. While she is fifth most popular in Asia due to her beauty, which resembles Yoona, she is nowhere near as popular as the first four, and has a rather inactive fandom. - KPopCritic

Being a middle ground in snsd (good at everything but excelling in nothing) Yuri often gets forgotten. This shouldn't happen because she's a very sweet and funny personality like Sooyoung, an amazing dancer like Hyoyeon, and the best singer out of the dance line

Yuri I never got too interested in you before I knew that lots of kpop liked you in the first impression (as Jungkook and V for example). They are right because you're too top, I love your good attitude, your humor, your beauty, your way of dancing... You are my idol because I would love to be like you and speak Korean. But in the meantime I encourage you thoroughly.

Yuri is just as talented and popular as the other members, I think people should not pay attention to which member is the most popular. as a whole they are pretty well known around the world.

8 Sunny (Lee Sun Kyu)

Despite having quite a strong international following, Sunny's popularity in the USA and Europe isn't strong enough to boost her any higher. Likewise, she consistently places last in Asian popularity polls, leaving her as the least popular member. Still, Sunny has a large fanbase with over 2.3 million followers on twitter and a lot of love from European and American fans for her beautiful, hilarious personality and strong - but underrated- singing voice. - KPopCritic

Shes all around best in my opinion. Someone who can be that cute and sexy at the same time is really good then you have of course the fact of her singing voice that is absolutely incredible! I would expect nothing less from one of the main, and lead singers of the group. and have you SEEN her bloom performance or three performance?!?! Sorry but shes just all around best. Well except in dancing I'll give that one to Hyoyeon. But still you GO SUNNY!

Over time Sunny grows on you. Didn't notice her much at first but soon realized she's everything----smart, cute, beautiful personality, strong, brave, funny, goofy, enthusiastic dancer and performer, maybe not the best singer but her voice gives snsd a distinct tone in the upper register. Sunny bunny my fave.

I'm not a sone but woah she always catches my attention O.o
