Recently, popular polling website KingChoice made polls for netizens to vote for both the 100 most beautiful women in the world, as well as the 100 most handsome men. The list included celebrities from numerous countries around the world, and many ended up being from Korean or in the Korean entertainment industry! Here are the 8 men of that category that made the top 20 on this list.
#17: Chanyeol (EXO)
Most K-Pop fans know that Chanyeol is main rapper, sub-vocalist, and also visual of EXO, so it shouldn’t be too much of a surprise to see him on here! He has model-like proportions with how tall he is, and he’s also extremely fashionable, which makes him look just that much more handsome.
#16: Hyun Bin
Hyun Bin first became highly recognized when he starred in the romantic comedy drama My Name is Kam Sam-Soon in 2005. In more recent years, he is known for his leading parts in popular series such as Secret Garden and Crash Landing on You, and has starred in many movies and won 18 different awards for his work. Most recently, he also made headlines when it was confirmed he was dating co-star Son Ye Jin, who made it onto KingChoice’s “100 Most Beautiful Women of 2020” list!
#15: Ji Chang Wook
Ji Chang Wook’s acting career began in the late 2000s, but he rose to popularity when he played his first lead role in the drama Smile Again in 2010. He gained even more success with his role in the historical drama Empress Ki in 2013, and has won 10 awards and had many other nominations throughout his career. And with that handsome face, it’s no surprise he made this list!
#13: Lee Joon Gi
Lee Joon Gi had small parts in dramas and films before he had a more major role in the film The King and the Clown in 2005, where he played as the clown and was brought into greater recognition and respect for his acting skills early on in his career. The role earned him several awards, and in the entirety of his work he’s won over 40 awards in total! He also has a fairly extensive discography as well.
#11: Eunwoo (ASTRO)
Eunwoo, while a vocalist as well as the visual and face of the group of ASTRO, has become just as well-known for his acting career as his singing career in recent years, if not more so. He has also long been dubbed as one of the most handsome K-Pop idols around, and it’s easy to see why. He has both soft and rugged charms that drive fans crazy!
#7: V (BTS)
Of course the list wouldn’t be complete without some BTS members. V is a lead dancer, sub-vocalist, and visual of the group, and has been ranking on “most handsome” lists for several years already. Besides that, he has a beautiful voice and has become an amazing dancer as well!
#6: Jin (BTS)
“Worldwide Handsome” Jin also had to be an addition to this list, of course. He’s also a sub-vocalist and visual of BTS, and has made a name for himself numerous times because of how he gets praise (and praises himself) for his handsome beauty. Like V, though, there’s much more to him than just a pretty face, and his vocal skills are nothing to scoff about!
#5: Lee Min Ho
Lee Min Ho is a multi-talented celebrity known for his acting, singing, and modeling career. He rose to fame most notably for his role in the 2009 drama Boys Over Flowers, and some of his other most popular dramas include The King: Eternal Monarch and The Heirs. He was also the first Korean celebrity to have a wax figure made of his image at Madame Tussauds, a wax museum in London! Apparently his visuals were too handsome to pass up the opportunity.
#2: Jungkook (BTS)
And finally, the highest-ranking Korean celebrity on this list is none other than the golden maknae (as well as main vocalist, lead dancer, sub-rapper, and center) of BTS, Jungkook. Given his incredible popularity in recent years and his undoubtedly good looks, it makes sense that he would rank near the top of this chart!
