While all K-Pop idols have a gift for many aspects of the performing arts, such as singing, dancing, and acting, there are quite a few who have shown they could easily switch over to a visual art career if they ever wanted to!
Let’s take a look at some idols whose creativity knows no limits:
1. Photography – BTS’s V and NCT’s Johnny
ARMYs are well aware that BTS‘s V is talented in a wide variety of artistic mediums, but his photography skills are just on another level! His sharp eye and calming aura helped him get this amazing shot of a turtle resting on the beach.
Johnny from NCT is another idol known for being an expert photographer, sharing his work in a series titled “Johnny’s Photo Diary” with the hashtag #Johntography every so often on the group’s official Twitter page.
2. Painting – BTS’s Jungkook and BLACKPINK’s Rosé
BTS‘s Jungkook has proved time and time again that he truly is the group’s golden maknae, excelling at literally *anything* he sets his mind to, including painting!
As soon as her dad posted this photo of a painting BLACKPINK‘s Rosé made back in 2010, everyone knew she is an artistic genius. Who else wants to see her try realistic painting again? (Maybe even on a live stream with fans!)
3. Pencil Drawing – Stray Kids’ Hyunjin and Red Velvet’s Seulgi
Stray Kids‘ Hyunjin was quite proud of this adorable pencil piece, and who could blame him? The shading and textures he created with only colored pencils and a blender are so incredibly realistic!
These Billie Eilish sketches made by Red Velvet‘s Seulgi look almost identical to the American singer, capturing the details of the eyes and nose practically perfectly!
4. Sculpting – MONSTA X’s Minhyuk
While he had already established himself as a talented painter, a video recently came out where MONSTA X‘s Minhyuk wowed audiences with his precise sculpting skills!

5. Fashion Design – ATEEZ’s Hongjoong and aespa’s Ningning
Caught up with the recent trend of ‘upcycling’ (in which a designer reuses discarded objects/materials to create a new-and-improved version), ATEEZ‘s Hongjoong has made numerous clothing pieces inspired by the group’s music!
Ningning of aespa has also shown an interest in the subject, sharing a photo of jean shorts which she added a mind-blowing skull design to!
