Probably one of the highest honors that a Korean celebrity can get is the title of being a "Nation's ______." Receiving such high regard means that as a celebrity, you have reached the peak of getting public love and interest.

We have compiled some of the celebrities whom you might not have known to have received the title.

#1 Suzy

First on the list is the "Nation's First Love" Suzy! Aside from the loving title, the gorgeous idol-turned actress also holds the title of being the "Nation's Sweetheart.

#2 IU

It's not only Suzy that was given the title "Nation's Sweetheart" but also the Korean superstar, IU. The singer-actress also once held the title as the "Nation's Little Sister."

#3 Yoo Seung Ho

If IU is the "Nation's Little Sister," her counterpart is Yoo Seung Ho. With his cute, bright and innocent charm, he is undeniably the "Nation's Little Brother."


Talking about brothers and sisters, there's no one in the Korean entertainment scene having the same brother-sister dynamic as AKMU. That's why the YG Entertainment duo is dubbed as the "Nation's Siblings."

#5 Park Bo Gum

This South Korean Oppa doesn't only have only one but three titles! For his mesmerizing charms and high-class image, Park Bo Gum is dubbed as the "Nation's Boyfriend," "Nation's Crown Prince, " and "Nation's Man of Good Influence."

#6 Seolhyun

AOA Seolhyun boasts a very stunning visual as well as a proportional body figure, earning her the title of being the "Nation's It Girl."

#7 Rain

Probably the only one on the list who got a "Nation's" title for a very absurd reason was Rain. The singer-actor was dubbed as the "Nation's Thief" after marrying Kim Tae Hee.

#8 Girls' Generation

With their talent and amazing achievements domestically and overseas, the SM Entertainment girl group, Girls' Generation, held the title "Nation's Girl Group."


Not much explanation is needed, BIGBANG is the "Nation's Boy Group!"
