Korean claim these male idols are ugly AND handsome at the same time

Physical beauty is very important in the entertainment industry, and without the physical appeal, it can be quite difficult for an idol to gain popularity. 

However, netizens recently discussed a few male idols who seem to be ugly at first, but after a while appear to be very handsome to fans. Although this may seem like a paradox, this phenomenon has happened with several different popular male idols.

Find out what Netizens had to say about this article below!

1. BIGBANG‘s Daesung

Daesung D-Lite

ㅋㅋㅋ Seriously you can’t ignore Daesung with this one. All male idols look like flower boys, but when he debuted, everyone was shocked. I also wonder why he was an idol, but as he grew up, his charms and visuals have becmoe so handsome ㄷㄷㄷㄷㄷ he’s seriously just so handsome.. why is he so cool

2. INFINITE‘s Sunggyu


Sunggyu too ㅋㅋ at first people reacted strongly, saying he looked like an ahjussi, but now he’s become one of the best idols. He has the most fans out of the members of INFINITE. The more I look at him, the more handsome he gets.. just so cool

3. INFINTE’s Dongwoo


ㅋㅋㅋㅋ Like Daesung, Dongwoo seriously received so much criticism when he debuted because he was ugly. The first time I saw Dongwoo I also thought he was really ugly.. but ever since Destiny, he’s become so handsome. Seriously, even if you’re ugly, if you know how to use the camera, you look so cool. He has a flower boy aura and he’s cool as well. Out of the INFINITE members, I like Sunggyu and Dongwoo the most.

4. Block B‘s Zico


At first, I was sure that he was some sort of gangster. People had very divided opinions about his looks, but to me, he just looked too violent to be considered handsome.. But he’s seriously cool… He’s great at rapping, knows how to dress, composes well…seriously he’s so persuading. He’s at least in the top 3 among idols. I’m really proud of him

5. BTS‘s Rap Monster

At first I thought that his face was too round, which made me wonder if he was black. But he’s really skilled and his voice is so sexy. He can pull off any clothes. When I look at him, he looks like a ugly but chic.

…And there’s iKON‘s Bobby and BIGBANG‘s Taeyang too
