[The Chosun Ilbo, December 18 2007] UCC Named Top Product of 2007

User created content, or UCC, has been chosen as the best hit product of the year, according to a survey released by the Samsung Economic Research Institute on Monday.

The institute came up with a top 10 list of the year's best products based on a survey of 10,142 Internet users.

The list included the China Fund, teenage sports stars Kim Yu-na and Park Tae-hwan, historical dramas such as "Dae Joyoung" and "Taewangsashingi(The Four Guardian Gods of the King)," cash management accounts (CMA), MBC entertainment show "Extreme Challenge", corn silk drink, five-girl pop group the Wonder Girls, Blemish Balm cosmetic cream and wine.

Cultural products were very popular this year, the institute noted, while unlike Japan and the U.S. where Apple's iPhone and other IT gadgets were included hit product lists, no IT devices made it on to the Korean list.
