Is 2017 the year of BTS, or is 2017 the year of BTS?
As if 2017 hasn’t already been exceedingly kind to the K-pop group, the seven-member boy band has added another feather to its cap just before the year ends. One of its members, V, whose real name is Kim Tae Hyung, has just been crowned for having the world’s most handsome face by American movie site TC Candler. That’s a huge jump from the 21-year-old singer’s 60th ranking last year. TC Candler released both its lists of the 100 Most Beautiful and Most Handsome Faces of 2017 today (28 Dec). And topping this year’s 100 Most Beautiful Faces list is Filipino-American actress-singer Liza Soberano. The annual lists which ranks the world’s most beautiful people prides itself on being the most international, diverse and extensive list of its kind.
Other BTS members who also made the list includes Jungkook (No.13) and Jimin (No. 64). Looks like member Jin, who was surprisingly snubbed, has to eat humble pie — the singer had given himself the nickname “worldwide handsome” after he trended on Twitter in May during the Billboard Music Awards because of his boyish good looks.
Scroll through the photo gallery (above) to see if your favourite stars made the list this year, or cry in outrage at those who didn’t (yes, we’re talking all you T.O.P/Song Joong Ki/Song Hye Kyo fans out there). Enjoy.
