In the final level, V bested NCT member Jaehyun, Filipino actor Alden Richards, Trinity member Porsche, and fellow BTS members Jimin, Jin and Jungkook.
From a total of 18,730,855 votes, V took 7,180,481 votes to secure first place, followed by Jungkook (6,492,222), Jin (2,945,148), Jimin (1,693,282), Porsche (195,438), Alden Richards (137,680) and Jaehyun (86,604).
Interestingly, this marks the first time in three years that BTS members occupied the first, second and third highest spots in the contest, according to Starmometer. This is also the first time that all seven members made it to the list.
V released his first full solo track outside of BTS, “Scenery,” on Jan. 30, 2019 as a gift for ARMY. Last month, he released his first solo soundtrack “Sweet Night,” which debuted on top of the U.S. iTunes.
Fans took to Twitter to celebrate V’s latest victory using the hashtags #HallOfFamerV and #VUltimateAsianHeartthrob2020.
Many people might not know this, but despite our large and loyal following which we are immensely grateful for, NextShark is still a small bootstrapped startup that runs on no outside funding or loans.
Everything you see today is built on the backs of warriors who have sacrificed opportunities to help give Asians all over the world a bigger voice.
However, we still face many trials and tribulations in our industry, from figuring out the most sustainable business model for independent media companies to facing the current COVID-19 pandemic decimating advertising revenues across the board.
We hope you consider making a contribution so we can continue to provide you with quality content that informs, educates and inspires the Asian community.
Even a $1 contribution goes a long way. Thank you for everyone’s support. We love you all and can’t appreciate you guys enough.
