Despite being a boy group, Super Junior managed to snag a spot at number five, even beating out I.O.I, an actual girl group. Their group photo on School Secrets’s post shows the members dress as Queen Elsa from the popular Disney movie “Frozen.”

Super Junior has been known for not shying away from feminine clothing and has even performed girl group covers in the past. Specifically, member Heechul has shown an affinity for girl group choreographies. Still, when they promote, they have typical masculine concepts.

The results of the poll have fans both confused and amused. One thing is for sure — though Super Junior has been active in the industry for over 15 years, their popularity is undeniable!
