K-pop boy band EXO was selected as the nation’s top celebrity for two straight years, according to business magazine Forbes Korea on Thursday.

Forbes Korea, which picks top celebrities every year, said the boy band was selected based on four criteria including sales they earned, media exposure, TV appearances and specialty.

Actor Yoo Ah-in and Hyeri from Girl’s Day came in second and third, respectively.

Yoo starred in hit films “Veteran” and “The Throne” last year and is currently playing a lead role in TV drama series “Six Flying Dragons.”

Hyeri, who rose to stardom after starring in hit TV series “Reply 1988,” featured in eight commercials last year.
