- Taehyung (BTS)
- Eunwoo (Astro)
- Mingyu (Seventeen)
- Jungkook (BTS)
- Daniel (Wanna One)
- Jin (BTS)
- Taeyong (NCT)
- Sehun (EXO)
- Jihoon (Wanna One)
- Hwall (The Boyz)
1. Taehyung (BTS)
Hailed as the most handsome celebrity in K-pop, he is also known as a fashionable king. With a well-chiseled face, gorgeous eyes, and a perfect nose and lips, a lot of Korean entertainment enthusiasts are inspired by his looks. Whether he's wearing a red bandana on his head, clothing himself in Gucci, or just simply chilling out in tees and pants, he always looks incredible. On stage, he never disappoints. His contacts, smokey eye makeup, and flashy outfits make him shine!
Apart from his looks, V is also beloved for his friendly, playful, and unique personality. V always puts everyone in a good mood. He is also good friends with his "Hwarang" brothers and enjoys a fun and fashionable life.
But, before gaining worldwide attention, he came from a poor family. If he wasn't an international star with BTS, he would probably end up being a farmer at his grandmother's farm. That's why he works so hard, because he believes that being an idol is a once in a lifetime opportunity. He is very appreciative of his fame.
2. Eunwoo (Astro)
Eunwoo is exceptionally handsome (with or without makeup). His flawless visuals will make you think that he's too handsome for girls to approach, and you're right! Cha Eun-woo is definitely one of the most beautiful human beings of all time. This 22-year old fashion genius is gaining popularity not only as a singer, but also as an actor. He starred in the 2017 drama series The Best Hit, where he played a famous idol. His charm brought him another acting opportunity on the drama My ID Is Gangnam Beauty, where he played the role of the leading man. He also starred alongside Shin Se-kyung in another 2019 series called Rookie Historian Goo Hae-Ryung.
During an interview, he revealed that a female idol once asked him out through text message. Maybe the idol felt scared to talk to him in person, because he is very handsome. He was introduced to the idol through a mutual acquaintance. But, he said that he didn't reject her. Instead, he just didn't reply to her, and he awkwardly greeted her when they met backstage! After all, he is a gentleman who wants to date someone "after meeting them personally."
3. Mingyu (Seventeen)
In case you didn't know, Kim Min-gyu (the face of the group) is a beautiful gem. His name literally means "precious stone that shines like a star." This perfectly describes how he appears on stage! He's so attractive!
Like his name suggests, he is a positive and optimistic person who seems a bit different from his charismatic image. Although he always looks cool and confident, he's actually a cheerful and silly person. He's also a responsible man who is in charge of cleaning, repairing things (working as SVT's technician), and an amazing guy. He can cook, catch fish, and take care of the other band members. With this, he gained the nicknames "Housewife Mingyu," "Technician," "Mingyu Shop," and "Kim-ssi ahjussi."
Mingyu is the kind of man that many fan girls fall head-over-heels for. Girls love the fact that he developed a sense of responsibility before becoming a singer. He worked part-time as a barista in a coffee shop before becoming famous. He also has a talent for interior design and building houses. Who wouldn't fall in love with a handsome guy who can do almost everything (while giving off a happy vibe)?
4. Jungkook (BTS)
The youngest member of BTS has grown up a lot since their debut in 2013. We can all agree that our baby bunny is now a hot, manly icon in the K-pop industry. He is only 21 years old, but he is a multi-talented man who knows how to slay at dancing, rapping, and singing. Whether he's being playful or serious, Jeon Jungkook, the golden maknae, never fails to amuse us. He loves playing soccer, which is perfect for his masculine build. He also loves video editing, photography, and making song covers. He's good at cooking, so he really dislikes bland food. Our "Kookie" enjoys playing computer games too, and he's even claimed to be a pro-gamer!
Jungkook grew up and became an adorable young man. Even the other BTS members are very fond of him. He likes to tease his older brothers. Sometimes, he is very immature. That said, he is still young, so it's actually very cute. RM said that "although he wants to seem manly, he is actually a cutie." In fact, when it comes to his ideal type, he said he likes "IU sunbaenim" and he is a big fan of her's. Good choice, Jungkook!
5. Daniel (Wanna One)
Kang Daniel is undoubtedly the most popular male celebrity in Korea today. He snatched our hearts after being the grand winner of Produce 101 Season 2. Not only is he an idol and a heartthrob, but he has also overcome a lot of hardships. He has established himself as a respectable and responsible person. He even topped the Korean brand reputation rankings for nine consecutive months, and was chosen as a model for a variety of products, such as cosmetics, home products, and even beer!
Daniel, whose real name is Kang Eui Geon, grew up with his mom, who raised him alone (despite their poor financial situation). He joined an entertainment agency at the age of 20, but it was a rocky road because the agency wasn't stable. He was about to move away to Canada when he got the offer to become a contestant on PD101. All of his hard work paid off when he won! But he remains down to earth and humble, and that makes him lovable to people of all ages. Even other artists revealed that he's their ideal guy and ultimate crush! Well, who wouldn't be in love with Daniel? We hope that he continues to be a nice person when he gets older.
6. Jin (BTS)
After gaining attention at the Billboard Music Awards for being the “third guy from the left,” Kim Seok-jin of BTS is now dubbed the “Worldwide Handsome.” He left a huge impact on international audiences, who caught sight of his princely image and instantly became fans.
That said, this wasn't the first time that his gorgeousness caused him to go viral. In fact, he was once known as the “car door guy,” because he looked super cool while getting out of the car during the 2015 Melon Music Awards! How could he be so attractive in so many ways?
Jin was born on December 4, 1992, and his big break came when he was discovered on the street by Big Hit Entertainment, who scouted him for an audition. But, as we've gotten to know him better, we've realized that he is more than just a good-looking guy. Armies know that he is a kind person with a beautiful heart.
He takes good care of the other members, so they sometimes call him the “mother” of BTS. He is a nice guy who loves to eat and makes delicious food. He also likes to crack an old dad joke, which are so funny! But, do you know what makes his jokes even funnier? It's his contagious laugh. If you don't fall for his puns, then you definitely can't escape his laugh.
7. Taeyong (NCT)
Lee Taeyong is the leader of NCT. He has strong charisma and incredible visuals. Born on July 1, 1995, Taeyong has many nicknames. Some people call him "T-yong," "TY" (which means "Thank You" to his fans), "Cookie Monster" (because he likes sweets), and "Grandpa" (because his debut hair color was white). His sexy jawline and small chiseled face make him look charming, yet manly. He is also skinny with a small waistline. So, for girls, his physique is like a dream come true!
Taeyong's determination to succeed was challenged when he got himself in a scandal that troubled his career, but he proved that he had reflected on his past actions and has changed a lot. Now, he's receiving lots of support from fans. Even his group members love him so much, that they say they would miss him dearly if he left. In fact, they say that their dorm would be a chaotic mess, if he left. Apparently, he is a very clean person.
He is a very shy person. He's similar to those lonely, but kind movie characters we so often see in K-dramas. Sometimes, he looks serious and cold, but he is actually a good person. His group mates revealed that he buys the food for them, gives them inspiring life advice, and cares for them a lot (though sometimes he nags them, because he doesn’t want them to make the same mistakes that he did). Taeyong is a really warm person that deserves more love!
8. Sehun (EXO)
No one's more elegant or sophisticated than EXO's Sehun! This 25-year old dancer and rapper is known for his fierce, sassy, cool, and stylish look. He has milky smooth skin that shines like a white pearl. Now, he is a top hallyu star in Korea. In recent years, he has become internationally famous. In fact, when he followed Victoria’s Secret supermodel Miranda Kerr on Instagram, she immediately followed him back! He's so handsome that even big celebs have become his fans!
Sehun was a former ulzzang and qonce attempted to run away from his agent when he was 12. He is naturally clever and a very mischievous guy. He likes to tease other EXO members (especially Chanyeol). This gained him the title of the “evil maknae.” He also expresses his happiness through his own language, by saying “Yehet” and “Ohorat." He's just so incredibly cute!
This year, we will see him acting in two films as he takes the lead role in Dokgo Rewind and Catman. He will also be appearing in the upcoming 2019 Chinese-Korean web drama Dear Archimedes and as a cast member of the Netflix original variety show Busted!
9. Jihoon (Wanna One)
Park Jihoon is the adorable “wink boy” of Produce 101 Season 2, who captured our hearts with his killer aegyo. Born on May 29, 1999, he ranked 2nd at PD101, and he was also voted by netizens as the most handsome trainee of the show. He is a lovable guy who likes to eat, loves the color pink, and enjoys popping and beat boxing. His cutesy trademark is the phrase “nae maeum soge jeojang,” which means “you’re saved into my heart.” Though he's known for his cute and bubbly image, he can also turn into a sexy guy, whose hot aura will make you melt! Although he has that sweet image, he also has a very manly side to him when he’s pissed off or in a bad mood.
You might not notice it, but before debuting as an idol, Jihoon was an active child actor who appeared in musicals and popular K-dramas like Jumong, The King and I, and Iljimae. I’m pretty sure Wannables are dying to see him act again, whether on the big or the small screen! At a young age, his versatile talent brought him many opportunities to work in film and advertisements. And, thanks to his charisma, he received offers from big companies to become their model.
Today, Jihoon is focused on his musical career. Recently, he revealed that his inspiration is BTS’ V.
10. Hwall (The Boyz)
Hwall is one of the freshest faces in the K-pop world right now. He is the 19-year old cutie from the new boy group The Boyz. Born as Heo Hyun-joon on March 9, 2000, he is a talented dancer from Busan who lived in the Philippines for four years and is now a sophomore at Hanlim Art High School. A chic, but irresistibly cute person, he is known as the "hidden card" and the "ultimate weapon" of the group. He proved this to be true when he gained attention for his incredible dance skills during their performance at Mnet. In fact, he specializes in modern dance and acrobatics, and his passion for dance is so strong that he even went to the same dance academy as his idol, BTS’ Jimin, because he wished to be a dance king like him!
Apart from being a good dancer, he's also very fashionable. In fact, he's in charge of the group's clothes. Our most favorite thing about him is his extraordinary work ethic. That said, his charming eyes and gummy smile aren't too bad to look at. He is also good at speaking english, which is a big plus for his international fans!
If you've never heard of The Boyz, you might want to check them out immediately. They debuted on December 6, 2017, and were awarded the Global Rookie Winner award at the V Live Awards in 2018.
