Three in 10 South Korean adults chose the inter-Korean summit talks as the top news of the year, a poll showed Monday.

In the survey of 500 South Koreans older than 19 nationwide, conducted by local pollster Realmeter on Friday, the largest number (28 percent) picked the summit talks between South Korean President Moon Jae-in and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un as this year's most important news.

Moon and Kim held summit talks at the truce village of Panmunjom on April 27 and May 26. Then Moon visited North Korea from Sept. 18-20 for his third summit with Kim.

The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.4 percentage points with a confidence level of 95 percent.

Steep rises in the minimum wage, chosen by 18.3 percent, came next, followed by the "Me Too" movement with 7.1 percent, the arrest of former President Lee Myung-bak with 5.8 percent, the income-led economic growth with 5.7 percent, the power abuse scandal involving former Supreme Court justices with 5.7 percent, the surge in home prices with 4.9 percent and the global popularity of K-pop boy band BTS with 4 percent.

Other news stories also deemed by the respondents as important included the so-called "gap-jil" practice that refers to the bossy behaviors by people in powerful positions with 3.6 percent, the ruling party's landslide win in local elections with 3.1 percent, the accounting fraud scandal at Samsung BioLogics with 3 percent, consumer anxiety over radon with 2.5 percent, cryptocurrency speculation with 2.4 percent, the PyeongChang Winter Olympics with 1.5 percent and the record heat wave with 1.5 percent.
