Mullets: you either love them or you hate them. Short in the front and long in the back, this hairstyle is often seen as dated and weird. But somehow, these 10 idols managed to take a polarizing cut and turn it into something undoubtedly hot!
1. BTS’s V
Since V first appeared with a mullet, he’s continuously proved that the style can be sexy. He knew the look might raise a few eyebrows, but that didn’t stop him from doing it anyway.
I’m doing [a mullet] solely because I want to myself. Many people think I don’t like it, but I really do. That’s why I did it.
His tousled locks give this style a soft, playful side that’s completely different to most of the edgier mullets out there.
2. EXO’s Baekhyun
When EXO-Ls first saw Baekhyun’s mullet for “Ko Ko Bop” era, some loved it instantly while others were shocked by the bold choice. Even Baekhyun himself was a little surprised, since he hadn’t rocked a mullet since kindergarten.
But there’s no denying that there’s definitely something hot about those red streaks, which fit the 80s summer vibe of the song perfectly.
3. BTS’s Jin
Fans had high expectations for BTS’s visuals in their 2020 Seasons Greetings, but what no one expected was for Jin to show up with a mullet!
When the preview dropped, fans almost thought the style was an optical illusion. But when they realized it was legit, ARMYs couldn’t help but fall in love.

4. GOT7’s JB
With his edgy mullet, JB looks like a certified bad boy.
Anyone who thought mullets were strictly old-school can’t deny they’re cool after seeing this.
5. EXO’s Chen
“Ko Ko Bop” wasn’t the last time a mullet would catch EXO-Ls off guard. Chen tried his hand at the look for “Tempo”.
This mullet style was one of the most unique to date, contrasting blunt bangs with braids in the back.
6. SEVENTEEN’s The8
Mullets may be all about the “party in the back”, but somehow The8 makes his sleek cut look all-business.
His mullet is one of the most sophisticated in K-Pop, especially when paired with those cute shirts and spectacles.
7. NCT’s Taeyong
Sometimes a mullet can distract from good looks, but in Taeyong’s case it’s the complete opposite.
The hairstyle frames his face perfectly, showing off his well-balanced and handsome features.
8. Stray Kids’ Hyunjin
No matter how he styles his mullet, Hyunjin always pulls it off. Some fans prefer the just-got-out-of-bed ruffled mullet look.
Others can’t get enough of the no-hair-out-of-place sleek mullet style.
Over the years, G-Dragon has rocked a mullet in tons of different styles. Fans couldn’t take their eyes off the bright red mullet he rocked in 2017.
This wispy mullet, on the other hand, got mixed reactions—a lot of “business in the front”, but not much “party in the back”.
10. WINNER’s Mino
Nothing amps up the “party” side of a mullet like a bold color to match. Mino had the perfect party style when he showed up on stage with his emerald green hair.
It’s hard enough to pull off a mullet as it is, so hats off to Mino for rocking it so effortlessly in a crazy hue.
