It is well known that Korean popular culture weighs heavily on appearance, and a recent article featured on Nate’s Pann dives into celebrities’ eyes as an insight to their personalities.
The article begins by introducing the eye physiognomy of a few popular celebrities, including Kim Hyun Joong, ZE:A‘s Im Siwan, and Park Seo Jun. Regarding Kim Hyun Joong, Go Young Wook, Park Seo Jun, and ZE:A’s Kwanghee, the article asserts that their eyes give off the feeling of dead fish. In contrast, Jisung and ZE:A’s Im Siwan are said to have eyes that sparkle. Actor and singer Seo Kang Jun is said to have eyes that look young and innocent, while actor Ji Chang Wook has eyes that are likable.
More examples of eye physiognomy of popular celebrities were left in the comments section, as netizens pointed out what they thought of the feelings they got from the gazes of particular celebrities. The top comment pointed out a celebrity that they thought had a rather negative eye physiognomy.
[+202, -53] I also look at the gazes of men, but am I the only one who thinks that Yoo Yeon Suk’s eyes look scary? Slightly fearsome eyes ㅠㅠ
The second top comment praised solo singer Eric Nam for his positive eye physiognomy, citing that his eyes were clear and full of good energy, in both photos and in person.
[+202, -12] I am an absolute fan of Eric Nam…his eyes are part of the reason. His eyes are very clear, can you feel the good energy [coming from them]? By the way, in photos it looks like this and in person I saw this was real. I’ll agree that personalities can be seen in the eyes!
There were also multiple comments on the article that cited IU as a holder of eyes that show an ambiguous personality, some of which are translated below:
[+126, -6] Oh, it wasn’t only me that thinks IU has strange eyes that look very stubborn…Why are people saying that it is jealousy?
[+123, -24] I’m [for] IU…Personality shows in their eyes.
[+114, -10] I’ll have many down votes, but IU…something unclear
Do you think that you can tell a person’s personality type by looking at their eyes?
