“Not Jungkook, Not Cha Eunwoo…” 32,000 People Voted For Their Favorite 97-Line Influencer And The Answer Will Surprise You

He deserves it.

When one hears “97-line,” they might be tempted to think of K-Pop’s famous 97-line crew. The friend group consists of most male idols born in that year, including ASTRO’s Cha Eunwoo, SEVENTEEN’s Mingyu, GOT7’s Yugyeom, NCT’s Jaehyun, and BTS’s Jungkook.

L to R: Eunwoo, Jungkook, Mingyu, and Yugyeom.

While that may be so, the term “97-line” generally refers to anyone born in a year ending with “97.” An online community recently took a poll for the most popular 97-line influencer. They posed the question of who one liked the most amongst 97-liners. Amongst the options were Cha Eunwoo, actor Yeo Jin Goo, Jungkook, and the Great King, Se Jong.

The poll took an amusing turn when the Great King won 86% of the 32,000 votes. King Se Jong was born in 1397, making him a part of the “97-line”  indeed. He has been credited with many things, including the creation of Hangul, the Korean alphabet. He’s on the ₩10,000 KRW (about $7.49 USD) dollar bill in South Korea, and many buildings, foundations, even a city and a college has been named for him.

Netizens easily acknowledged the win,
