These 9 Boy Group Idols Have Naturally Curly Hair & We Wish They’d Show It Off More Often

Do you prefer them with straight or curly hair?

Since idols are usually seen with straight hair, you’d be forgiven for assuming they all have naturally straight locks. However, the truth is that several K-Pop artists’s hair is actually naturally curly. Take these 10 boy group stars, for example, who definitely need to show off their gorgeous natural curls more often.

1. Mark (NCT)

Back in a 2019 promotional video for SuperM, EXO‘s Kai revealed that NCT’s Mark secretly has naturally curly hair. After seeing Mark’s hair in its natural state, Kai told fans it looks “really good.”

Thanks to pre-debut photos, SEVENTEEN fans once discovered DK’s naturally hair is curly. Joshua later confirmed this fact in an episode of Idol Room, where he rapped, “You have curly hair,” in a battle with DK.

3. Bang Chan (Stray Kids)

Stray Kids’ Bang Chan has been open about his curly hair since before the group even debuted. In “Domestic Banana,” a song from 3RACHA’s 2017 EP 3Days, he told listeners, “It’s too humid today, my least favorite kind of day / My natural curly hair goes super frizzy, yeah.”

4. Jungwon (ENHYPEN)

ENHYPEN fans are yet to see Jungwon’s natural curly hair since the group’s debut, but it definitely exists. Sadly, in the group’s debut showcase, Jungwon revealed he straightens his hair because he doesn’t like how it looks curly.

5. Hyunjae (THE BOYZ)

In past live broadcasts, THE BOYZ’s Hyunjae joked that someone permed his hair while he was sleeping. In reality, it’s just naturally curly, though fans rarely get to see it that way.

6. Yuto (PENTAGON)

PENTAGON’s Yuto’s natural hair is said to have very tight curls, but he once revealed he gets regular straightening treatments because he’s not fond of how it looks.


7. Ravn (ONEUS)

ONEUS’s Ravn once described his curly hair as poodle-like. He also added that it’s actually hard to keep straight, but fans wouldn’t mind him skipping that hassle every once in a while.

You may know OnlyOneOf’s Junji for his long “curtain hair” look with bangs that covered his face earlier this year. However, he recently confessed his hair used to be curly.

At a fan sign a few years ago, INFINITE’s L told a fan the one item he must keep in his car at all times is a brush or comb. Why? Because his hair is so curly naturally, he has to brush it often to keep it tame.
