The music video for the song "Nobody" by Korean pop group the Wonder Girls was named "Video of the Year" by a U.S.-based music website.
In an online poll for 80 videos conducted by Musiqtone.com until Sunday, the video for the English version of "Nobody" received 1,249,080 votes or 37 percent of the total to claim the top position.
The runner-up, "Automatic" by German band Tokio Hotel, garnered 400,000 fewer votes for 24 percent of the total.
Musiqtone.com provides news and multimedia content about albums and music videos in the U.S. The Wonder Girls were one of the nominees for the website's "Artist of the Month" last September.
Heavy voting by Korean netizens may be the reason "Nobody" shot to the top. The poll allowed individuals to vote up to 50 times a day.
The Wonder Girls made their U.S. debut last fall with the English version of "Nobody," which became the first song ever by a Korean artist to enter the Billboard Hot 100 in October when it ranked 76th.
