The term tsundere originates from Japan and refers to someone who acts cold or hostile against someone they actually love. Although they might appear to reject affection from the person or people they love, their small moments of warmth and love truly shine.
Tsundere is often attributed to anime characters, there are definitely some K-pop idols out there who fit this description. Here are the top 7 tsundere idols, as chosen by fans:
7. Taeyeon (Girls’ Generation)
Taeyeon REALLY tried to keep a straight face when she’s with Tiffany…but she always fails!
6. Jae (Day6)
It’s common knowledge that Jae likes to pick on Wonpil. But he does it so much that it’s clear that there’s a lot of love between the two members – so much that it could only be expressed through insults. Just look at how Jae looks at Wonpil and you’ll realize how much great his love is!
5. JB (GOT7)
JB tries to be cool, especially in the face of Youngjae‘s silliness. However, it’s no secret that he’s actually a cutie pie deep down inside!
4. Jennie (BLACKPINK)
Jennie is known for picking on Lisa, often shutting her down. However, real BLINKs know that Jennie is just very tsundere, and the two are actually very close friends!
3. Sungjae (BTOB)
Although he’s the BTOB’s maknae, Sungjae is known for being the most serious member in a group full of jokesters, especially Changsub. But even someone as cool as Sungjae eventually gets sucked into Changsub’s silliness eventually.
2. Suga (BTS)
Suga often looks disapprovingly at his dorky BTS members, but at the end of the day, everyone knows he truly loves his fellow group members.
1. Jeongyeon (TWICE)
Jeongyeon is known for rejecting Nayeon‘s advances and running off when Nayeon tries to kiss her. However, there have been plenty of moments where Jeongyeon has been seen taking care of Nayeon, one of her best friends and closest companions.
