K-Pop Idols With Charming Monolid Eyes That Pull Us In

For idols, it’s not the most common thing to have monolid eyes. In the K-pop industry, idols with big eyes (and double eyelids) tend to be viewed as being more in line with South Korean beauty standards. But what people don’t know is that there’s a certain uniqueness to monolids that make them pretty darn charming. Here’s a look at 23 idols who have that adorable monolid charm!

EXO’s Xiumin
