20 Idols That Overflow With “Black Charisma”

There’s more to “Black Charisma” than just wearing black.

While many idols have stage presence and oodles of charisma, not all of them have what Koreans call “Black Charisma”, the ability to engage viewers with a “dark concept” – looking haughty, sophisticated or sharp in a sleek, often black, outfit. While the dark clothes are important, it’s more about the idols’s presence and feel. Most of the time, an entertainer’s “black charisma” is turned on for a specific photoshoot, performance or concept, but some idols just have a naturally “dark” and powerful presence!
