5 of the Hottest “Shoulder Gangster” Transformations


So what exactly is a shoulder gangster? Don’t worry, it’s nothing offensive in Korea. Recently, the term “shoulder gangster” has been trending as a phrase to describe individuals with broad shoulders. Lee Min Ho, Lee Jong Suk, Kim Woo Bin, Yoo Yeon Seok, and Ji Chang Wook are some of today’s hottest shoulder gangsters. They all stand tall at 180 cm or more and are extremely attractive. Another common denominator is the fact that they have all transformed their bodies through exercise and boast amazingly hot, broad shoulders. They have the kind of shoulders women want to lean on and hold on to. Clothes, especially knits, drape beautifully over them. Even fully clothed, these stars look super hot and masculine.

With that said, let’s take a look at some sexy shoulder gangster transformations. Enjoy the eye candy!

Were you familiar with Lee Min Ho prior to his “Boys Over Flowers” fame?


He definitely bulked up as we you might have noticed in “City Hunter” and “Heirs.”




Lee Jong Suk had a thinner frame during his modeling days. He started developing more muscle as he expanded his acting career.





Admittedly, Ji Chang Wook didn’t have as much of a scrawny past like the other actors on this list. Fans have long appreciated his hunky broad shoulders. Many were sad to see them go when “Healer” ended.


His hot body gained a lot of recognition when he was the cover model for Men’s Health and showed off his ripped abs.


While many appreciated his hard work in toning his body, more fans prefer the softer sculpted body he rocked in “Healer.”

Kim Woo Bin is another model turned actor who grew into his broad shoulders as his acting career took off.




More eye candy ahead! You’re welcome~



Yoo Yeon Seok is currently adorable in his new drama “Warm and Cozy.” Underneath his handsome and kind visage is a whole lot of hotness! The actor debuted at a young age in the film “Old Boy.” Since then he has grown up quite nicely, don’t you think?



He turned heads with his role in “Reply 1994.” His chiseled body certainly helped!
