The first male models to appear on the cover the the male lifestyle magazine, Kangin and Eunhyuk each show previously unseen sides of themselves while displaying exceptional and captivating qualities in their photos. The R-rated images, which feature a “real bachelor party” concept, show the two bandmates posing with scantily clad Maxim models Park Moo Bi and Yoon Chae Won.
When asked if they worry about the rated content in this fashion spread since they are idols, Kangin and Eunhyuk responded with “Just as you follow Roman law when you go to Rome, shouldn’t we follow the laws of Maxim in this case?”
Meanwhile, the pair’s appearance on the magazine’s cover has also led to increased demand of this edition, a Maxim representative claimed. “Our customers are usually 85 percent male, we are a magazine dominated by male subscribers, but the following publication had unprecedented orders from female customers that it may lead to an early shortage of copies.”
