An ordinary Japanese high school student has gone viral in South Korea and it’s because of his extremely good looks.
It all began when an online community user shared photos of an otherwise normal high school boy getting his hair done at a Japanese salon. While the hair salon’s Instagram page is filled with numerous other hair models, this particular one stood out to the followers.
Upon investigation, netizens discovered that the high schooler’s name is Shusuke. Shusuke earned himself the nickname Superstar K (shortened version, shu-seu-K) due to the similarity of his name and the shortened name of the program. In the Instagram clips, the high schooler’s visuals are definitely noticeable even though he’s wearing a mask.
Shortly after he went viral, photos of Shusuke without his mask began to circulate online and just as everyone suspected, his good looks continued even underneath his mask.
Netizens immediately chimed in with their thoughts, comparing the high schooler’s looks to ASTRO‘s Cha Eunwoo, who is known for his godly visuals. Due to his good looks, the Japanese hair salon’s Instagram page began to fill with Korean comments left by Korean netizens who fell in love with the handsome high schooler.
- “Noona came back…”
- “Hair stylist, thank you for a second video! I really want to steal him.”
- “I came back for you, handsome fellow.”
- “Would you be interested in debuting as a member of NCT..”
- “SM is looking for Japanese trainees…do you have any desires to be a K-Pop idol”
- “You’re not even a celebrity and you’re just a civilian, but I could understand why you wouldn’t want to share your Instagram handle.”
- “If you know you’re going viral in Korea for being handsome, you should probably audition or something.”
- “This is a miracle…”
- “Please make an Instagram…”
His popularity is only continuing to rise, as the hair salon has been uploading even more videos with the high schooler as a hair model. While the hair salon received endless requests for Shusuke’s Instagram handle, they declined in an effort to protect him. According to the hair salon, Shusuke is still a minor and is also just a normal high school student.
While no one knows much more about the high schooler, we get a feeling that we’ll be seeing more of Shusuke very soon. You can check out the viral Japanese high schooler down below.
