This Produce X 101 Trainee Is Melting Hearts With All Of His “Boyfriend Photos” On Instagram

His “boyfriend photos” are almost too good.

남친짤 (namchinjjal, “boyfriend photos”), is a popular photo trend in Korea nowadays, and many idols have even taken part in the heart-fluttering phenomenon. “Boyfriend photos” are simply pictures/gifs that seem to be taken from a significant other’s point of view. Produce X 101 trainee and actor Lee Sejin has the formula for the perfect boyfriend photos all figured out, and the internet can’t get enough.

Successful boyfriend photos are often meant to be cozy, almost candid shots that give a feeling of intimacy.

In each of his boyfriend photos Lee Sejin gives off the perfect ambiance of a relaxed boyfriend who’s let his guard down in front of his doting significant other.

We’re not sure if there’s a type of boyfriend photo as effective as the “eating photo”. With his head lowered in a bashful smile, Lee Sejin proved that he has this form mastered as well.

Another quite popular incarnation (and another that Lee Sejin has in his arsenal) is the selfie. Rather than seeming to be taken by their significant other, these boyfriend photo selfies seem to be taken for their significant other.

In addition to being a boyfriend photo master, Lee Sejin is currently ranked in 13th place on Produce X 101. If the show were to end today, he’d be just two positions shy of debuting; we wish him the best and hope he gets a lot of love and support on the show.
