12 Idols Who Look Good Blonde

K-Pop is well-known for their colorful hairdos and cutting-edge styles, so it’s not unusual to see K-Pop idols with bright blue or hot pink hair. Although these colors may be fun, there is something to be said for a classic, blonde look. From G-Dragon to IU, many different artists have chosen to go blonde at one point or another in their career. While some choose platinum shades, others go with a honey blonde. Whatever color they choose though, they always manage to look incredible! So, while the list could be endless, here are 12 K-Pop idols who look great as blondes.


To be fair, T.O.P from BIGBANG looks gorgeous all the time. However, the white blonde tones in this hairstyle contrast really well with his skin and manage to emphasize his beautiful facial structure even more. Although the hairdo is modern and fun, this classic color mixes well with T.O.P’s handsome looks.


I was recently in LA and saw Kim Boa from SPICA up close on the red-carpet. Hands down, she is one of the most adorable people I’ve ever seen! This 1940s style bob looks amazing and brings attention to her gorgeous eyes, while the golden blonde color appears both innocent and sexy.


Jaejoong of JYJ has been blonde throughout most of his singing career. A fact for which we can only be grateful, since blonde suits him so well. Whether he was sporting platinum blonde spikes during his early days or muted blonde highlights during recent years, without a doubt this idol looks perfect as a blonde.


While Hyorin of Sistar is more famous for being a sultry brunette, one of my favorite looks for her is this sleek, blonde bob. The super platinum color and the adorable polka-dot dress are reminiscent of Marilyn Monroe. However, this layered cut with face-framing pieces keeps it simple and modern.


Some people were just meant to be blonde and that’s certainly the case with Sehun from EXO. When the group first debuted, Sehun looked sweet and innocent with light brown hair. When he decided to go shorter and blonder though, his facial features suddenly popped as the blonde color emphasized his strong cheekbones and beautiful face.


With her long, strawberry blonde locks, Nana from After School is the epitome of perfection! When you look at her flawless face and photogenic smile, it should come as no surprise that Nana actually started her career as a model. Her golden highlights give off a SoCal vibe, which goes perfectly with her natural beauty.


Practically everyone in Super Junior has been blonde at some point over the last 10 years, but perhaps no one else has looked as perfect with blonde hair as Sungmin. Famous for his adorable aegyo and pretty face, this blonde hairstyle managed to make him look even younger and more angelic than he already did.


If you were to ask K-Pop fans to name a female idol with blonde hair, one of the first people to come to mind would undoubtedly be CL of 2NE1. Over the years, this exotic beauty has modeled practically every shade of blonde that exists. Whether it’s a dark, honey blonde or a highlighted, light blonde, these golden tones seem to draw even more attention to her gorgeous, cat-like eyes.


Though he isn’t considered the visual of BTS, when Rap Monster went blonde for promotions in early 2014, many people were surprised to notice his striking, good looks. Without his trademark glasses from earlier videos and with a suave, side-swept hairstyle, Rap Monster looked mature, handsome and sexy- despite the fact that he is still just 19 years old.


When you think about hot, blonde guys in Korea, you automatically think of B.A.P. When the group first debuted, every one of the members had matching blonde hair. Because they all looked so fantastic, it makes it hard to choose just one member for this list. However, Himchan seems especially well-suited as a blonde since the platinum color really compliments his dark eyes and porcelain skin.

With a name like Sunny, it seems like a crime not to be blonde all the time! With this multi-hued color and short pixie cut, the adorable Girls’ Generation member looks even cuter than usual. This style is perfect for Sunny because it enhances her huge, brown eyes and youthful face.


How can Nichkhun from 2PM get any more handsome? Evidently, by going for this golden blonde color, which is the perfect compliment for his bronzed skin and coffee colored eyes. Combined with this brown and white suit, the look becomes distinctly sophisticated with a European flair.


There are so many beautiful blondes in Korea that we could continue naming people like Amber, Taemin, Zelo, and Alice. While some of these K-Pop idols are well-known for their fair hair, others only experimented with going blonde. All of these blondes cover a wide variety of shades, but each and every artist looks absolutely fantastic.
