The much-awaited list of the ‘100 Most Handsome Faces’ of the world for 2021 has been dropped by TC Candler, the most prestigious and internationally recognised list of its kind and just like every year, it has been attracting loads of attention from people all over the world. TC Candler asks people across the globe, every year, to vote for their favourite celebrities who they think, have the most handsome faces. Last year, the celebrity who topped the list was Felix Kjellberg, the most popular YouTuber in the world, PewDiePie, followed by BTS’ V, Marvel’s Chris Hemsworth and BTS’ Jungkook.
However, no matter what the category is, K-pop idols never fail to prove their worth! Known for their incredibly handsome faces and proportionate body figures, TC Candler’s list of the ‘100 Most Handsome Faces’ of 2021 features an overwhelming number of 24 male K-pop artists. Four of the seven members of BTS have made it to the list along with three NCT and three ENHYPEN members! Here is the complete list of all the 24 K-pop idols who have made an appearance on the list of 100 most handsome faces in 2021.
24. Lucas from NCT
Lucas from NCT is back on the TC Candler’s list for the fourth time at the 93rd position this year after taking up the 91st spot last year! With his big bambi eyes, gorgeous smile and great body proportions, it would have been unfortunate if TC Candler hadn’t featured him on the list. Moreover, he has got a handsome, model-like and photogenic face that attracts everyone around him.
Taking up his bandmate Lucas’ spot from the last year is NCT’s Mark, who has made his second appearance on the list this year! Voted the 91st most handsome male face of 2021, Mark has to-die-for cheekbones and a smile that can light up the whole room! He is the visual definition of a combination of a confused little puppy and a bad boy character!
22. Baekho from NU’EST
NU’EST’s Baekho has jumped up to the 89th position this year on the list after debuting as the 99th most handsome face of 2020! Securing a spot on the list for the second time in a row, Baekho’s face resembles a little to a Greek god with his manly and mature face. Not to mention his prominent abs that adds to his overall attractive appearance!
21. Soobin from TXT
Just within a year of his debut with TXT, Soobin got featured on the list of TC Candler’s ‘100 Most Handsome Faces’ last year at the 52nd position. However, this year, he has been pushed back to the 80th position. However, with his undeniable and charming face and growing popularity, it is guaranteed that he will come back next year with a higher rank.
20. Taemin from SHINEE
From a cute little kid with the mushroom bowl haircut to being one of the most handsome faces in the world, SHINEE’s Taemin has come a long way. His transformation seems like the biggest mystery of the K-pop industry or it might be just that puberty has hit him a little too hard! His physique and facial features are both very charming, pretty and somewhat feminine which gives him an overall attractive appearance. This year, he has been selected as the 72nd most handsome man in the world by TC Candler.
19. Jay from ENHYPEN
ENHYPEN’s Jay has taken up the 65th position on the most handsome faces list this year, marking his debut on the list! A nineteen-year-old talented, charming and fashion enthusiast, he has a face that fits both the Korean beauty standards as well as Western beauty standards. Jay is adored by his fans for his funny and chattering personality and his astonishing hip-hop bounces.
18. Jackson from GOT7
Making an appearance on TC Candler’s list of ‘100 Most Handsome Faces’ of the year for the fifth time, GOT7’s Jackson has been voted for the 61st position this year. His big dark brown sparkly eyes and pouty lips aid in making his face look that handsome and attractive. This Hong Kong-born k-pop idol is already known for his acne-free and glowing skin which has even landed him various ambassador deals. Needless to say, he is good-looking with or without makeup!
17. BamBam from GOT7
Known for his significant style quotient, GOT7’s BamBam has been placed on the 54th spot this year after debuting at number 48 last year. The way everyone’s eyes turn towards him wherever he stands proves how grandly he carries himself. He is like the rich, handsome and flexing cool kid from the high school who everyone wants to be friends with!
16. Jake from ENHYPEN
Voted 50th on the TC Candler’s list of 2021, ENHYPEN’s Jake has made his second consecutive appearance this year. A nineteen-year-old boy with such manly visuals, it’s hard to find such a face in the k-pop industry! With his wide jawline and big prominent eyes, Jake has one of the most attractive side profiles in the group and deserves his spot on the list of ‘100 Most Handsome Faces’ of 2021.
15. Kai from EXO
No doubt each and every member of EXO has got God-tier faces but can we ever get enough of Kai’s magnificent visuals! He possesses an entirely different aura that makes him look so attractive and sexy. Renowned as the ‘World Class Performer,’ this marks Kai’s sixth appearance on the TC Candler’s list of the ‘100 Most Handsome Faces’ at the 48th position. Last year, he was voted for the 32nd position on the list.
14. Mingyu from Seventeen
Only if his freaking-hot visuals could be described in words! Mingyu has been placed at the 43rd position of the ‘100 Most Handsome Faces’ of 2021, marking his fifth appearance on the list. This tall and handsome K-pop idol who is confident enough to call himself the best looking man within the hip hop unit, was voted for the 27th position last year. We should as well call him the fireball of Seventeen for his stunning and hot visuals!
13. Cha Eun-woo from ASTRO
This is already the third appearance of Cha Eun-woo on this list. An actor, singer as well as visual, he is indeed the true definition of an anime or webtoon lead character! He was placed on the 22nd position on TC Candler’s ‘100 Most Handsome Faces 2020’ but has surprisingly slipped to the 41st spot. Admired by his fans for his warm personality, Cha Eun-woo has got perfectly sharp features and an exquisite face.
From being a K-pop trainee to one of the most followed influencers of Chinese origin on Weibo and now the 38th most handsome face, Wang Yibo is climbing the ladders of success at a constant pace. With his handsome and charismatic face and cool, cheeky and stylish nature, we doubt if there’s anyone who won’t fall for him at first sight. He is equally amazing at rapping, acting, bike racing, skating and even acting.
11. The8 from Seventeen
He owns a physique that everyone would die to have— tall and slim, just like a model. No wonder he has been chosen as the 36th most handsome face of 2021. His facial features are gorgeously mysterious and give off a cold dude vibe which automatically makes him attractive! Considering his exceptional visuals, we won’t be surprised if he jumps up a few spots next year.
10. Jin from BTS
There’s no way Jin couldn’t have been able to make it to the list of TC Candler’s ‘100 Most Handsome Faces’ when we all know his nickname is the ‘worldwide handsome’! He has advanced to the 35th position this year, four steps ahead of his last year’s position. Marking his 3rd appearance on the list so far, Jin is currently all over the news for being the most successful male K-pop idol this year. Whether it is his stunning visuals or his positive and confident personality, there’s something about this man that blows away the Armies!
9. Lay from EXO
Another EXO charmer, Lay has been put on the 32nd spot this time while he was ranked the 11th most handsome face last year. Marking his 4th appearance on this list, Lay has a different aura with more masculine facial features, sharp jawline and cute dimples. Whether it is dancing, singing or rapping, Lay is charismatic in everything he does!
8. Taeyong from NCT
NCT’s Taeyong is also a regular member on the list who have been making appearances every year since 2017 and this year, he has taken up the 26th spot! In 2020, he was selected as the 15th most handsome face thanks to his stunning visuals and charming facial features that make him look like someone who has just stepped out of a comic book! Not only is he the multi-talented leader, singer, rapper, dancer and songwriter of NCT but also so candy to the eyes!
7. Bangchan from Stray Kids
Stray Kids’ Bang Chan owns 24th place on TC Candler’s list of ‘100 Most Handsome Faces’ of 2021. And… We have to talk about Bangchan’s duality on and off-screen! He is normally an adorable kid who looks like a puppy while smiling. However, once his expressions turn more serious and confident, he looks like an entirely new person. With visuals enough to make anyone go weak at the knees, it would have been a shame for TC Candler to not have him on their most-anticipated list of ‘100 Most Handsome Faces’ of 2021.
6. Wonho (Soloist)
The former member of Monsta X and currently a soloist, Wonho has been ranked as the 21st most handsome face of 2021. Last year, he was placed on the 30th spot, which was his first appearance on the list of ‘100 Most Handsome Faces’ and has quickly managed to jump nine steps up this year.
5. Niki from ENHYPEN
It was iconic for Niki to get voted the 24th most handsome male face of 2020, becoming the highest-ranking rookie to get featured on that year’s list. Despite debuting just a year before, Niki has managed to advance to the 18th spot this year! And… He is just sixteen years old! Let’s accept it, people, his visuals aren’t any joke!
4. Jimin from BTS
The bias or bias-wrecker of a majority of BTS stans, Jimin has secured the 14th position on the list, becoming the fourth most handsome man in 2021 from South Korea. Last year, he was put in the 17th position by TC Candler which marked his 4th appearance on the list. He has a sweet as candy personality but when he takes up the role of BTS’ Jimin, he is a hundred times more attractive! Ask a BTS stan and watch him/her admiring him endlessly to the point that it won’t even make any sense.
3. Hyunjin from Stray Kids
With the passing years, Stray Kids’ Hyunjin is becoming more and more handsome, making him the 12th most handsome face in the world in 2021. He is all cute and adorable off-stage but is capable of killing you with his fierce and hot visuals on-stage! Indeed a K-pop idol with one of the best faces of the 4th generation, Hyunjin is expected to keep making appearances on this list every year.
2. Jungkook from BTS
The Golden Maknae of BTS, Jungkook has landed upon the fifth position on the list this year. Not only is he popular for his looks both within and beyond Asia but also appreciated for his exceptional singing skills. He was chosen as the most handsome face by TC Candler in 2019 but was pulled down to #4 in 2020. With a radiant smile on his face and eyes that glow forever, this guy embodies the accurate blend of innocence and sexiness, especially with his newfound interest in piercings!
1. V from BTS
BTS’s V stands as the most handsome male K-pop idol and the 3rd most handsome face in the world this year. It’s really unfortunate that his rank stepped down by a number from the last year but that doesn’t lower down his overwhelming handsomeness! In 2017, TC Candler chose him as the ‘World’s Most Handsome Face,’ making him the first K-pop act as well as the first Asian to do so since 2013.
With his jawline as sharp as a knife and hair, more fluffy than that of a sheep, Kim Taehyung is definitely the ‘King of Visuals’.
