We previously reported that Song Hye Gyo (Descendants of the Sun) was the apparent winner when the 2016 Goddess of Asia competition concluded.  In a last minute surprise, another contender surpassed Song Ji Hyo (Running Man) to grab the number 2 spot. What about the other finalists? Here are the final vote counts.

The Goddess of Asia 2016 is an annual award organized by the Contemporary Asian Goddess Entertainment Network. According to the competition, the Goddess of Asia is more than a pretty face with an enviable figure. She must set a positive example as a graceful, even-tempered goddess who is warmhearted to others and dedicated to her work.
