V’s visuals outstanding even in mobile phone quality photos

Recently, online media Koreaboo picked seven K-pop idols, who “stand out for looking good even in lower quality street-taken photos.” And leading the list was BTS member V.

The news outlet said that V and six others look amazing even in real life as “their good looks are not limited to the mobile or TV screen.”

BTS V is one of the top visuals of his generation. He has a boyishly masculine look that few people can boast of,” it said.

This is not the first time for V, whose real name is Kim Tae-hyung, is praised for his visual.

For example, Famous Star 101 named V as “the most handsome man in the world” for last year. Famous Star 101 is a U.S. entertainment website.

V gained a total of 6.2 million votes to win out the race among 10 final candidates from across the world including such well-known singers as Justin Bieber and Harry Styles.

The site recognized V’s “beautiful eyes and angelic and charming face,” noting that it looks “proportionate with or without makeup on.”

V’s band BTS is currently the world’s biggest boy band. The seven-piece act resumed its official schedule this week after an extended break over the past four weeks.

Along with V, Koreaboo put six more K-pop stars in the list like Red Velvet’s Irene and BlackPink’s Jennie.

Irene is often compared to a goddess and for good reason. Her out-of-this-world visuals can stop anyone in their tracks… if they’re so lucky to catch a glimpse of her!” it said.
