A controversy has recently been surrounding the ‘2010 Yahoo Asia Buzz Awards’, as many fans are doubting the legitimacy of its online voting system.
Between November 8th and the 30th, Yahoo has been conducting an online poll for three categories:‘Korean Male Buzz Star’, ‘Korean Female Buzz Star’ and ‘Asia’s Buzz Star‘.
The problem that had caught the attention of sharp fans is that the poll results for some nominees had either taken a sharp rise or drop in a spontaneous fashion. For instance, in the ‘Male Buzz Star’ category, Jang Geun Suk’s poll results saw sharp rises and falls at a continuous rate, while a considerable number of votes for Kim Hyun Joong dropped unexepectedly.
Consequently, many netizens are suspecting the poll results to have a substantial error in voting calculations.
Fans have become even more angered by Yahoo’s lack of investigation on this matter, who merely called it a simple ’server error’. Netizens commented, “The globally acknowledged Yahoo doesn’t want to be humiliated in public, which is why they are ignoring the hard work of the fans”, “I want to rebuke Yahoo for their lack of action regarding this issue.”
Responding to such criticism, a representative of Yahoo Korea explained on December 2nd, “There was a problem with the server overloading, however, we have not been able to confirm a manipulation of the poll results. We are still inspecting the reasons behind these errors.”
They carefully continued, “We cannot reveal a correct set of poll results without fully completing our investigation. We cannot confirm anything for now.”
Meanwhile, according to the online poll results on the site, Jang Geun Suk ranked 1st place for the ‘Male Buzz Star’ category for this year’s ‘Buzz Awards’.
Being of the same age and having previous work experience as child actors, Jang Geun Suk andMoon Geun Young share a special relationship.
Regarding Jang Geun Suk, Moon Geun Young commented, “Geun Suk has a lot of interest in acting. He’s always livening up the set atmosphere and we connect on a lot of levels so I’m learning a lot from him.”
Jang Geun Suk complimented back, “Geun Young is always respectful, bowing and greeting the staff members before anyone else. She has a lot of energy in that small body of hers. She’s such a bright, strong friend that being with her makes me feel better.”
Other staff members that observed the two commented, “Just looking at them, anyone can tell that they’re a lovely couple. They both help everyone feel comfortable on set and maintain a happy atmosphere.”

According to his agency on November 10th, Jang Geun Suk will be visiting 4 cities in Japan in 5 cycles, starting from Fukuoka on the 12th, and going up towards Kobe, Yokohama, and Sapporo.
Jang Geun Suk said, “Coincidently, this upcoming Japan tour will be clashing with my comeback drama production, ‘Mary Stayed Out All Night”. Since the tour dates run parallel with my filming schedules, I will need very tight time management; however, I’m still happy as I will be able to share news about ‘Mary Stayed Out All Night’ while going on tour.”
A representative of Jang Geun Suk’s agency added, “Ever since we announced the news of his Japanese event, we have been getting countless calls about concert inquiries, and the concerts immediately sold out once tickets became available for sale. Because the server had crashed due to the high traffic, we received numerous calls from fans who were unable to purchase a ticket.”
They continued, “After holding an emergency meeting, we decided to add on an extra concert in Yokohama, but that was sold out right after ticket sales went open too. We are just really thankful for the tremendous amount of interest.”
Jang Geun Suk will be leaving for Fukuoka on the 11th in preparation for his first concert.
