There have been a lot of debuts this year, both in the music and acting industries, but which individuals stood out the most? OSEN surveyed 48 officials in the areas of broadcasting, music, and film to pick who they thought shined the brightest this year.

In 2012, he’ll release his movie ‘Thieves‘ as well as the historical-fantasy drama, ‘The Moon That Embraces The Sun‘.

Second place went to actor Lee Jae Hoon, earning a total of 10 points with his performance on ‘Guard‘ and ‘The Front Line‘. He won a total of five rookie awards and is currently filming two new movies.

Third place went to ‘Superstar K2‘ winner Huh Gak with seven points, while ‘Superstar K3‘ winner Oohlala Session followed with five points.

In fifth place was “trend idols” INFINITE, followed by actress Kang Sora in sixth for ‘Sunny‘, Moon Chae Won in seventh, and finally gagman Choi Hyo Jong in eighth.

Some of the 48 participants of the survey included PD Park Kyung Duk of ‘Inkigayo‘, PD Cho Hyo Jin of ‘Running Man‘, CEO Yang Geun Hwan of Key East Entertainment, CEO Kim Young Min of SM Entertainment, CEO Jung Wook of JYP Entertainment, CEO Hong Seung Sung of Cube Entertainment, and composers Shinsadong Tiger and Brave Brothers.
