Hong Kong magazine, I-Magazine, recently featured their 2016 Fashion Face Awards list and 4 out of the top 5 spots were awarded to South Korean idols.
I-Magazine partnered with ADOBE to select the best male fashion face in Asia. The panel of judges comprises 380 professional photographers, designers, makeup artists, stylists, and editors from 40 countries, including Hong Kong, The United Kingdom, China, and South Korea. Lee Kikwang took the number one spot because of his unique face. Some of the judges chose to explain why he was clearly the top choice:
“Myriad ways of facial expression.” – Carol Feng, I-MAGAZINE Fashion Photographer
“Unique impression. Slender long neck is a desirable attribute in fashion photography.” – Yen Cheung, Founder of I-MAGAZINE
“Harmonized high cheekbones and full lips. Great proportion.” – Oscar Iron, Adobe Software Expert
Kikwang posted on his personal Instagram page regarding this recognition, relaying how grateful and honored he is to be number one!
GOT7‘s Jackson was the runner-up, while EXO‘s Chanyeol followed close behind, placing third. Taiwanese actor, Darren Wang, took fourth place, narrowly beating out BIGBANG‘s T.O.P, who took fifth.
Kikwang’s fellow member, Yoon Doojoon, also made the list at 37th place, while actors Lee Dong Wook and Park Bo Gum came in 9th and 19th place, respectively. Other idols who made the list include G-Dragon, Lee Minho, Oh Sehun, Choi Siwon, and many more.
