6. Zico

Zico has mentioned that he enjoys drawing when he can. It’s no surprise because the man is so gifted in all aspects when it comes to art. When he was on the show “Happy Together,” he was able to showcase some of his drawing skills through a game that’s similar to Pictionary.

Out of all the artists on this list, Song Mino is the only one who seems to be really pursuing art beyond just as a hobby. Mino seems to have his hand in various aspects of the arts, as he’s also interested in photography, fashion, and of course, rapping!
