Every K-Pop groups are composed of several members who have their own respective positions, such as the leader, main vocalist, lead vocalist, main dancer, lead dancer, main rapper, lead rapper, and of course, the visual. The visual position may not have the highest authority in the group, but it is the most charming role that a member can have. Unlike the leader position who holds the biggest responsibility of taking care of each members, being the visual seemed pretty simple. With natural beauty, an attractive face, and strong charisma, that member can be the official visual.

The visual and the maknae of B1A4 is the 'chic' Gong Chan-shik, simply known as Gongchan. He is the cutest member of the group and is known for his talent in fan service. His strong aegyo becomes his strongest charm towards the other members, and despite being the youngest, he also has a mature side to him which is seen when he is taking care of his hyungs. He is described as an extremely handsome guy by his hyungs and is the best in Math. He is also unbeatable in playing rock-paper-scissors. His warm personality is usually expressed by his habit of hugging. He is also known for his resemblance to Joshua of Seventeen. Though Gongchan has never dated before, but he would want a girl with strong aegyo to be his date.

6. Eunwoo (Astro)

Recognized as the most handsome visual among all the rookie K-Pop groups is Astro's very own member, Eunwoo. Apart from being the visual of the group, he is also the "Morning Alarm" of the group because he always wakes up early and is used to wake the other members. He is said to be a cold-hearted guy, but once you get to know him, he's a very loyal person. He also appeared in several shows, movies, and dramas. He also has a talent in swimming, playing the guitar and violin, and even in Disc Jockeying. Besides being good-looking, Eunwoo is also good in English. His ideal girl is someone who is curious, intelligent, and wise.

5. Hongbin (VIXX)

The charismatic visual of VIXX who likes playing basketball and taking photographs is Lee Hong-bin. Because he is simply handsome and attractive, he gained the nickname 'Visual Master' along with two other funny nicknames: Bean and Kong. His good-looking visual made him not just an idol, but an actor as well. In fact, he started his acting career in 2014 in SBS’s romantic drama Glorious Day as Yoo Ji-ho. His favorite food includes spaghetti, curry, and Korean sweet and sour pork, and his favorite color is navy blue. Many of his fans say that he looks a little bit like Se7en. He later revealed that if he was a girl, he would go out with Ken because he's always fun to be with.

4. Minho (SHINee)

The idol that is not just a talented singer but a talented actor as well is SHINee's visual, Choi Min-ho. His small face is just so attractive and appealing that he later became known as 'Flaming Charisma Minho' and 'Frog Prince Minho'. You'll find him even more handsome when you get to know of his funny, cheerful, and bright side. He is also known for his strong fighting spirit and has a competitive side to him whenever he is playing. He likes playing basketball and soccer, and even dreamed of being a professional soccer player when he was young. But more than his charms, he also has a sweet side of appreciating little things especially when she sees a girl tucking her hair behind the ears which he really likes.

3. Jaejoong (JYJ)

He's hot, handsome, and sexy. Jaejoong of JYJ is the visual and the face of the group because of his strong charisma from head to toe. Every emotion he makes is just sexy - whether he laughs, sings, or just simply stare or look blank. Not many fans may have known this but his family is quite big because his biological mother gave him for adoption. His hobbies includes playing computer games, listening to music, composing songs, playing the piano, and cooking delicious meals. He has good friends in the music industry including BoA, SS501’s Hyunjoong, Super Junior’s Heechul, B2ST’s Junhyung, and M.Pire’s Lumin. He also said that when it comes to love, age doesn't matter to him.

2. Jin (BTS)

The Princess of BTS, who is also called Pink Princess and Jin Princess is Kim Seok-jin. He's got the nickname 'princess' because he likes Disney Princesses and his favorite color is pink. He has a princess-like visual because of his pretty face, attractive eyes, and sexy smile. He's also got the best body in BTS according to other members. Besides being the group's visual, he is also the one who loves to eat, can't watch horror movies, and likes strawberries but doesn't like strawberry-flavored things. He might have the princess nicknames, but for the members, he would always be their 'grandma' because he's the oldest, he likes to cook, and is carefree like a sloth. Jin also said himself that he is closest to V. Isn't Jin really beautiful like a princess? Definitely, he deserves to be the visual of the group.

1. L (Infinite)

Among all the visual members of K-Pop groups, the one that has the strongest charisma, most beautiful face, and is the most handsome-looking of all is Kim Myung-soo of Infinite, also known as L. It is said that L has a natural curly hair but whatever his hairstyle is, he always looked incredibly handsome and attractive like a precious flower. His eyes, nose, lips, face, and everything on him seemed just so perfect. Isn't it unfair for an idol like him to be this pretty? He is also the best Japanese-speaker in the group and admits he loves reading manga, including Naruto, Bleach, and One Piece. He also eats the most among the group. He likes the color black the most that's why his clothes are mostly black. He also appeared as an actor in several dramas which is a proof that he is a versatile and talented person.

Questions & Answers

  • Why isn't Kim Taehyung included on this list?

    I know that Taehyung's visuals are absolutely great, but I only included the official visual member on this list, and from BTS, we have Jin.

  • Where is Key from SHINee? He is gorgeous.

    I totally agree that Key is a gorgeous man. He's a really good guy too! But Shinee's profile says that their official visual member is Minho. Sadly, the list only includes the official visual members, which is also the reason why there are no EXO members listed.

      Excuse mee.. I can see some hypocratitic V stans talking bunkum how beautiful their bias is, more than L and Jin. Can't you be just happy about BTS became 2nd thanks to Jin? V isn't even official visual. He can't beat either Myungsoo or Jin that's the truth. (Visual wise) A visual of a group supposed to get attention to his group. Jin does it very well,he has gone viral all over the world several times. So he's one and only visual of BTS. This is not about facial proportions or anything scientifically perfect. If a person is handsome even when he's bare faced,that's called handsome. Both Myungsoo and Jin are the most natural out of their groups. They don't need artificial things or expensive clothes to make them look hot. Yes I meant it, Jin's the only handsome one in BTS even before the debut. Same goes with visual legend Myungsoo. Idk why the person who made this article didn't add the official visual of EXO. He deserves to be in this list.

      Keep in mind that these are only VISUALS of K-Pop groups, NOT all the other members. Please stop complaining that your bias isn’t there, especially A.R.M.Y’S, though I’m a die-hard fan myself, it gets quite annoying when people complain that their own BTS bias isn’t on the list. Please stop and just appreciate that there are actually idols this handsome in this world for you to admire.

      honestly, all of the visuals are handsome, but for me, it will always be jin, and of course, the other bts members are handsome too, I didn't only choose jin because of his face, but in a face, a personality shows a lot of the face, that's why I chose Jin. btw I'm sure there are a lot of ppl thinking bts is behind the scenes but it's not. btw this site should kind of mention that their bias is L as it said but should also say that fans can choose what they want and shouldn't choose anything based on the sites bias.

      V isn't handsome enough for beat or even not close enough for INFINITE L in visual wise. And V hasn't a golden proportions while L has high standards golden proportions along with EXO Suho.I heard most of people request L's proportion as their plastic surgeries.(Official list by many plastic surgeons in South Korea) And Jin is official visual because he's the most handsome in BTS. So don't made hilarious comment here. Before beat L ,he should try to beat visuals of Jin's and maybe Jungkook's.LMAO

      I agree that V can beat L. I know that jin is the visual of BTS that is why v is not here but it is just a fact. People in korea phraise V for his beautiful face, handsomeness and visuals. He also has a nicname as CGV meaning Computer generated V. V has an unbeatable face.. his face proportion is amazing.

      Wow.. antis don't even have to try & tear down BTS, their own fans do it for them. I'm not even a fan but I would never disrespect Jin like that. To completely ignore him on this list complaining why your bias isn't there. Jin is BTS visual, all the members vote & acknowledge him as that. To just disregard & shove him aside like he doesn't matter? Now I understand why they're called one of the most immature fandoms. I have my bias but I know to love & support the group as a whole.

Y I don't know if your happy because Seokjin was 2nd or disappointed by knowing that Seokjin was the visual I'm crying A. R. M. Y Seokjin deserves being the visual like come on he was knowned because of his good looks he was even titled THE CAR DOOR GUY and THE THIRD GUY FROM THE LEFT his not even giving an effort to open a car door but look he was trending because of it and BBMAS pictures of BTS was trending not just because they one because of Seokjin too, Seokjin is helping the group to be well know because of his good looks his a BTS member a handsome one too being a TRENDER boy he is.

      honestly bts fans salty bc the article stated L as the top. it's their choice? don't need to be so rude about how V would have beaten L and adding "just saying..." doesn't make it any better. L is an acknowledged visual and V isn't even the visual in BTS. please. and for them exo fans? yours fav oppas aren't here maybe because the writer didn't feel like their visuals were good enough? besides, in exo, there isn't a visual. thereby, not on the list. legit, i love bts, exo and infinite but i'm only proud to say i'm an inspirit because it's people like you guys who ruin the names exo-L and army.

      L is not just a visual. He has paired it with numerous talents. The basics of an idol is singing and dancing and he's more than just the average. He also has number of talents under his belt and succeeded on them too. TBH, on award shows or gayos where artists get together, L's visual easily floats. That one fancam when Infinite stand along BTS. LOL. That Gayo when L stood beside yonghwa, nickhun, Baro and the rest of the lucky boys. That's just L.. I'm not even talking about Myungsoo. LOL.

      L has proven so many times on stage that he's a god of visual. His visuals easily switches to sexy, cute, handsome and manly (which most visuals doesn't have). He also paired it with numerous talents. He wasn't called Shinmolnam for nothing. Nuff' said.
