A recent post made on an online forum discussing male K-Pop idols that were popular in school has been garnering a lot of attention, with currently over 90,000 views and 450 comments! Titled “Male idols who were famous during their school days for being so popular”, the original author names five male idols who were known to be well-liked and even “famous” during their school-age days, which a lot of commenters end up agreeing with. Here are those five idols!
1. Jaehyun (NCT)
Due to moving around when he was younger, Jaehyun attended several different schools, including time spent in Connecticut between the ages of 5 and 10. Despite the transitions, however, the NCT member’s handsomeness, infectious smile, and kind personality must have made him popular no matter where he went!
2. V (BTS)
Like Jaehyun, V also did some moving around as a child, which led to him attending different schools in his life. However, he was praised by one of his high school teachers for being an ideal student that always listened carefully and participated actively in class, making him likely popular with both his instructors along with his fellow students! His always-handsome visuals definitely didn’t hurt, either.
3. Baekhyun (EXO)
Baekhyun was a member of his school’s band when he attended Jungwon High School, even filling the role as the lead singer in the group! That, paired with his sweet and goofy personality, made him popular enough in school that he even had his own fanchant before he was a K-Pop idol! It seems that he was always meant for stardom.
4. Wonpil (DAY6)
Considering that Wonpil said he would have gone on to college to study engineering if he hadn’t ended up in DAY6, it’s safe to say that he was likely an attentive and responsible student in his school-age days! It’s clear in his photos that he also had ruggedly handsome good looks when he was young too, which is always a benefit in school.
5. Jungmo (CRAVITY)
Like Baekhyun, Jungmo was also a part of his school’s band when he attended Sangmoon High School, and played the role as the group’s guitarist! It seems that he, too, benefitted from being musically inclined when it came to popularity in school, and he was also known to crack jokes in school which probably only made him more likeable!
Here’s what netizens are saying in the comments of the original post:
- “Jaehyun looks good with hair like that…”
- “V would have been popular just because of his personality, but his looks are also crazy. He’s like a cartoon”
- “V must have been the most famous face in the area, not just at school. ㅋㅋㅋ”
- “I’m not a Baekhyun fan, but Baekhyun must have been popular”
- “Wonpil is so handsome”
- “Wonpil’s first pic is crazy”
- “Seriously, if I had seen Koo Jungmo at school, I wouldn’t have been able to get into college because I would only focus on him”
