Every year since 1990, TC Candler and The Independent Critics reveal the world famous “100 Most Beautiful Faces” and “100 Most Handsome Faces” lists, including the most famous celebrities worldwide.

Unlike most other annual beauty rankings, The List is not popularity contest and is most definitely not country specific. It is not about the sexiest body or the most famous celebrity. Rather, the list attempts to inform & broaden public opinion instead of reflecting it.  You will find superstars and new stars, global sensations and relative unknowns.

— Independent Critics

For several years, the hottest K-Pop idols have been nominated and usually ranked high throughout the final list.

The winners for 2021 were revealed seven months ago, and the 2022 nominees were revealed six months ago. So, the nominations are still ongoing, and netizens can vote for their picks.

Yet, recently, the news was circulating online that BTS‘s leader RM had allegedly won, specifically over British actor Henry Cavill.

Some even reported that RM had “dethroned” Henry Cavill for the title of “World’s Most Handsome Face.” Yet, Burmese model, actor, and singer Paing Takhon was the one to receive the title in 2021.

Still, due to the “fake news,” RM became the target of cyberbullying as netizens expressed outrage.

Many netizens made offensive, racist, xenophobic, homophobic, and transphobic comments toward RM.

It has gotten so out of hand that TC Candler has released a statement regarding the matter. It was confirmed that the official crowning was not yet revealed and won’t be until December 2022.

ARMYs are disturbed that a fake news story in the form of a meme resulted in such massive hate towards the BTS leader.

Hopefully, with TC Candler’s clarification, the fake news circulation will stop, too.
