Why do all male groups use eyeliner?

One of the most noticeable aspects of male groups in K-pop is that most, if not all male idols wear eyeliner. 

And while those who aren’t fans of the genre might question why male idols use eyeliner, a recent online post shed light on the difference in the aura of male idols when they’re wearing eyeliner versus when they’re not. Using EXO‘s Baekhyun as an example, the post showed the amount of charisma that a proper application of eyeliner can add to an idol.
