8 K-Pop Stars Who Have Gotten Hotter With Age


As a grown woman of rather advanced years, I have to admit that I passed my prime years ago. I often wish that I could magically turn back the clock and return to those years when I was younger, thinner, and more attractive. While I mourn over those extra pounds and the wrinkles around my eyes, however, I can’t help but notice certain K-pop stars who seem to have found a magical potion that only makes them more gorgeous with time. Want to know who made the list? Let’s check it out in “8 K-Pop Stars Who Have Gotten Hotter With Age!”

Eunhyuk – Super Junior

When Super Junior first debuted, Eunhyuk was definitely not known as the visual of the group. Slightly awkward and with a hairstyle that wouldn’t have flattered anyone, he was ranked as one of the most unattractive members according to the others in the group. As he aged however, he improved so much that he is now known as one of the sexiest, hottest guys in K-pop. His flawless skin and striking bone structure are incredibly gorgeous.


CL – 2NE1

By the time she made her official debut, this powerhouse diva had already started her transformation. With time, she left behind her cute, dimple-accented grin, and bright eye smile to embrace a fiercer, tougher version of herself. Nowadays, she is known for her exaggerated eye makeup, bold fashion, and love of luxury brands. CL was adorable before, but she’s grown even more gorgeous as the years have gone by.



We all known that T.O.P is incredibly gorgeous and talented, but what you might not know is that he used to struggle with confidence and self-esteem because of his looks. When T.O.P was a young teenager, he was somewhat chubby and struggled with his weight. When he began to pursue music, though, he soon shed the pounds and improved his body. His manly, good looks soon began to shine through even more and he is now one of the hottest singers and actors in Korea!


Taemin – SHINee

Even as a small child, Taemin has always been adorable! Therefore, it should come as no surprise that he was noticed for his good looks when he debuted. Although still very young at the time, people could see his natural beauty shining through and assumed he would grow up to be a very handsome man. They were, of course, correct! Since then, Taemin has left behind the childish haircuts and clothes and has fully embraced being a hot, gorgeous, young guy. As a member of SHINee and now as a solo artist, Taemin loves to play up his sexy side and show fans exactly why he is so hot!


Jessica Jung

A former Girls’ Generation member, this Korean-American beauty has definitely improved over the years. Along with changes in fashion, hair and makeup, it appears that Jessica has had a little help from a plastic surgeon to slightly refine her looks. Although some fans vehemently deny it, there is no doubt that Jessica has really grown into a great beauty- whether that was a natural process or one that was helped a little bit from a surgeon, it doesn’t matter. All I know is that she looks more amazing now than ever! In addition, she has developed a deep love for fashion, something that is evident in her fantastic sense of style.


Chanyeol – EXO

Even as a slightly chubby kid with glasses, Chanyeol‘s classic good looks were already starting to show. In the early days of his career, their stylist gave him some questionable hairstyles ranging from a long, choppy ponytail, a head full of tight curls similar to Lee Min Ho in “Boys Over Flowers” and the frizzy, teased perm pictured below. Since debut, however, Chanyeol has grown even more handsome, leading the stylist to dress him in more classic styles which compliment his good looks. A large number of the SMTOWN staff even voted Chanyeol as the most handsome of all their artists.


Suzy – miss A

Suzy was always adorable! As a baby, a little girl and then a teenager, her natural beauty already shone through and caught people’s eyes. After her debut, this beautiful, young girl gradually grew into a more mature, sexy woman. Although still adorable and with a very cute personality, there is no denying that Suzy is also one of the hottest women in K-pop. With her gorgeous hair, beautiful face, and toned body, this is one star who has definitely gotten better with age!


Minhyuk – BTOB

As an average, young boy, Minhyuk was just the typical, cute little kid.  As he grew up however, his looks began to change and mature. Since becoming a K-pop artist, he has worked incredibly hard to achieve a perfect body with chiseled muscles. He has even posed for magazines like Men’s Health and is known to be extremely athletic as well. Apart from his toned body though, his handsome face and gorgeous smile all come together to form the perfect package.Without a doubt, Minhyuk has definitely grown hotter with age!
