MinHyuk is famous as a member of the vocally legendary boy group BTOB. They are known for their discography filled with nothing but hits and having some of the most endearing personalities as individuals and a group. MinHyuk is known for being an all-rounder and one of the aces in the K-Pop industry.
Firstly, MinHyuk has trended multiple times among fans for being one of the most handsome visuals in K-Pop. He has even been acknowledged by his peers, winning the title as the most handsome contestant on the Mnet show “KINGDOM: LEGENDARY WAR“.
He even trended in Korean media for his visuals remaining unchangingly handsome after being discharged from the military. While many idols tend to exhibit physical changes after their time in the military, MinHyuk remained the handsome prince that everyone knew him as before he enlisted.
It is no surprise that he has trending visuals because they are on another level. He has defined facial features that create a lasting impression on anyone who looks at him.
MinHyuk is especially known for having youthful visuals, which makes him perfect to model cosmetic products. He is actually a model for the cosmetics brand Paula’s Choice.
MinHyuk also has a ripped body which is a treat for the eyes. His toned body, defined abs, and muscular arms make him the perfect fitness model for any athletic wear brand. He deserves all of the fitness brand ambassadorships and more.
There is clearly a reason that he has been the feature model for Men’s Health.
Even his gym photos look like he is photoshoot-ready. We appreciate the behind-the-scenes sneak peeks, too.
One of his visual strengths is his ability to pull off any concept or fashion look. His sexy still jumps out in every image and knows no bounds.
These are only a few of the reasons that he could totally be a full-time model.
If you knew nothing about K-Pop or BTOB, MinHyuk would definitely seem like a model at first glance. Do you agree?
