11 K-Pop Idols Whose Fierce Looks Don’t Match Their Sunshine Personalities
The saying “never judge a book by its cover” applies to a lot more things than just books. Appearances aren’t everything, and even stage personas can give false impressions. That’s definitely true for these 11 K-pop idols, whose bright personalities are totally different from their striking looks!
You might be fooled by Taeyong’s impressive performance abilities and prince-like visuals into thinking that NCT’s leader is stern and cold – which couldn’t be further from the truth! He may be one of the group’s oldest members, but his surprisingly adorable personality and sunshine smile are super sweet.
2. MAMAMOO’s Hwasa
MAMAMOO’s youngest member Hwasa is shaking up the K-pop world with her stand-out visuals and fierce confidence, but that’s not all there is to her personality. She’s very down-to-earth, and her kindness only makes her that much more amazing. Plus, she’s great with kids!
3. Stray Kids’ Changbin
He’s super buff and super talented, but he’s still the group’s fake maknae! Changbin’s amazing body lines and sharp jaw may make him look a little hard to approach, but his personality is definitely not. He’s Stray Kids’ aegyo king and is always making the group (and STAY!) burst out laughing.
4. aespa’s Karina
Karina’s out-of-this-world visuals and amazing performance abilities might make her seem a little intimidating at first, but fans know that she’s cute, funny, and always looking out for her group members. Her natural sense of humor and adorable laugh are sunny and sweet!
5. ATEEZ’s Mingi
ATEEZ’s rapper Mingi is tall, strong, and has some pretty intense stage presence. His voice is deep and his rap talent is remarkable – but offstage, he’s like a big puppy! He’s hilariously playful and fits right in with ATEEZ’s humorous group dynamic.
EXID’s Hani went mega-viral for her fancam of the group’s song “Up and Down,” and her fierce performance is certainly memorable. However, she’s also super funny and a definite sunshine idol with her bright grin and hilarious reactions. This clip is a classic, and the laughter is absolutely contagious.
7. TXT’s Yeonjun
TXT’s oldest member Yeonjun may look scary at first (anyone seen the Puma MV?), but he’s actually a total sweetheart. He’s full of cute smiles and witty jokes and secretly takes care of the younger members all the time. He’s surprisingly adorable for someone who is nearly six feet tall!
8. Red Velvet’s Seulgi
Seulgi looks pretty fierce onstage and has the skills to back it up (as expected for the main dancer of a group like Red Velvet). However, fans know that behind the scenes, she’s every bit as cute as a teddy bear! Her sunny personality and natural aegyo are both super endearing.
9. SEVENTEEN’s Hoshi
The leader of the dance team and the artist behind the iconic “Spider” solo, Hoshi can definitely look fierce at times. However, he’s also a member of BSS – SEVENTEEN’s comedic trio that always brings the laughs! Hoshi is always down for a great joke, and his smile is like a ray of sunshine.
Her amazing performances and high-selling magazine shoots might make Jennie seem too cool, but in reality she’s as cute as can be! She’s always taking care of the other BLACKPINK members, and her natural aegyo comes out at all the right moments. She’s like sunshine personified!
11. BTS’s V
Widely considered one of K-pop’s most handsome male idols, the combination of V’s talent and visuals can be intimidating. However, the illusion is broken whenever he bursts out into adorable laughs! His jokes, clumsiness, and naturally outgoing personality are definitely the stuff of sunshine.
