Mnet's new male idol competition program 'BOYS24' is under fire for excessively photoshopping their contestants' profiles. 


Following the past first episode, viewers ranted complaints about the actual visuals of the contestants. Netizens claimed that they were shocked and disappointed at the great difference between the contestants' profile pictures revealed prior to the show, and their real visuals.

The majority of the contestants looked different from their profile pictures, which seemed photoshopped to make them look slimmer, sharper, and ultimately handsomer.


Netizens complained, "Wow..They are not as handsome as I thought..Actually they are quite ugly..", "They are god looking, but not as much as their profile pictures", "That's too much photoshop. Some look totally different", etc. 


Take a look at the comparisons below. Did 'BOYS24' go overboard with all the photoshopping?

    Can't find out how to edit my post. Boy 5 in that lol list, Oh Jinseok (and Jinseob). Whoever watched the show can tell that this one didn't get any photoshop. It's too bad ppl are judging them on their faces rather than their talents.

    As a model I will say that that is not all photoshop but ridiculously good posing and look acting as well as a talented makeup artist

    Basically, they took some of the worst pictures they could possibly find and chose those to make them look as little like their picture as possible. Oh Well, that means these people are missing out. That's what happens when you let tabloids make decisions for you .

    For most people, the eyes are different (Bigger? Wider?)  and for some, face shape (sharper definitely) but some just look like they weren't wearing twice as much eyeliner, eye shadow and make up in general. But tbh, some of them look better in real life. Some of them looked so weird in the pics so I didn't like them but now I see them in real life (from the comparison pics), I actually think it's not that bad (tho their visuals aren't killer or anything+they were chosen for talent) some of them look cute.However, it is mnet's fault. Like, the boys don't go to them and say "photoshop me until I look like a god."

    It's the makeup, hairstyles, and angles that made more of an impact tbh.

    I laughed way too much to this. Anyway, jaehyun, david,  and changmin have killer visuals. That Photoshop has nothing on them.

    Seriously, the photoshop is not that bad cause there's things called make up and good angle and come on contouring is basically the key it's not the photoshop at all they're actually quite cute and beside the comparison photo is just a derp picture of them
