While long hair isn’t always suitable for some K-Pop idols, there are others (both male and female!) that look absolutely stunning with this kind of styling. Recently on the Korean entertainment website Kpopmap, fans were able to vote for which male idols they believed looked the best with longer hair! After hundreds of votes, these are the top 10 results.
10. Hwiyoung (SF9)
Hwiyoung’s handsome visuals could make him an unofficial visual of SF9, and when he let his hair grow out in 2019, he had fans swooning at just how gorgeous he looked!
9. Beomgyu (TXT)
Beomgyu was one of the more recent male idols to go with the long-haired look during the The Chaos Chapter: Freeze era, and fans would be sad to see it go with how much it suited him!
8. Hyungwon (MONSTA X)
As an official visual of MONSTA X, Hyungwon can make pretty much any hairstyle look amazing, but there’s no denying that he looked effortlessly cool with long locks!
7. Jungkook (BTS)
Of course this list wouldn’t be complete without Jungkook, whose various longer hairstyles in 2019 and during the “Butter” era had fans collectively losing their minds on social media!
6. Taemin (SHINee)
Taemin had iconic long hair (paired with long bangs) back in SHINee’s “Lucifer” days, and he made Shawols incredibly happy when he returned to this kind of styling for his recent “Advice” era, with different coloring!
5. Hyunjin (Stray Kids)
Hyunjin is arguably one of the most popular idols of the modern day to have gorgeous long hair for an extended period of time (that he sadly recently cut!), and it’s easy to see why!
4. Junji (OnlyOneOf)
Junji’s eye-catching long hair and eye-covering bangs helped OnlyOneOf get more attention for their group, and while he undoubtedly struggled to be able to see with such a look, it was still iconic!
3. Jeonghan (SEVENTEEN)
Back when Jeonghan had longer than shoulder-length hair in the first couple of years after SEVENTEEN debuted, fans and netizens alike praised how beautiful he looked with such androgynous visuals!
2. Xion (ONEUS)
2021 seemed to be the year that a lot of male idols went with long hair, and Xion made his silver-blond locks look so elegant!
1. Rocky (ASTRO)
This year also blessed us with Rocky “rocking” long hair for ASTRO’s “ONE” era back in April, and gives his masculine visuals a very pretty yet fitting look!
