TWICE is often hailed as a "visual group," with all the members praised for their beauty. But how well do they fit the Korean beauty standard? Let's discuss this here.
First, let us establish what the Korean beauty standard is. The beauty standard for females prioritizes a slim, hourglass figure, small face, a v-shaped jaw, straight eyebrow, flawless skin, and 165cm (5'4") or taller in height. They also adhere to a golden ratio of 1:8, meaning your total height should measure to eight of your head. The beauty standard also prefers heart-shaped lips and small noses. With that in mind, here are the TWICE members ranked by how well they fit the Korean beauty standard.
Let us take note that this does not measure TWICE's actual beauty. Beauty is subjective and it up to your preference on who you find beautiful. This is just a measurement following the Korean beauty standard.
Jihyo has a slim and toned body, as well as big round eyes with double eyelids. The idol also has a small nose. Her jaw is rounder, however, and does not have a pronounced v-line. Additionally, she has slightly tanned skin. Jihyo has a beautiful apple-body shape/figure. She is below 165cm tall and her lips are on the thinner side.
Dahyun has a slim figure and a small face. She has skin as white as tofu, which has led fans to call her "dubu." The idol also has a heart-shaped upper lip. She is below 165cm in height and she has a pear-shaped figure. The idol also has a wider nose. Additionally, Dahyun is the only TWICE member with monolids, giving her a unique, feline-like look.
Chaeyoung has a slim figure and a small face. Her nose is slim with a high bridge, a heart-shaped upper lip, and double eyelids. Chaeyoung is the shortest member of TWICE and stands at below 165cm tall. The idol has a rectangle-shaped body and her face does not have a prominent v-line. In terms of the Korean beauty standard, Chaeyoung is considered tan. The idol is known for suiting Western beauty standards more with her exotic look.
Momo has a slim and slender figure, thanks to her years of dancing! Additionally, the Japanese idol has a small nose and a high nose bridge, double eyelids, and a defined v-shaped jaw. Like Sana, there has been some debate over her height, but it is usually stated that she is below 165 cm tall. The idol has an inverted triangle body shape, with wider shoulders and a slimmer waist. The idol also has a thinner upper lip.
Jeongyeon is one of the two members who are taller than 165 cm tall. The idol has a small face with a slim figure. She has a small nose and double eyelids, but her lips are not heart-shaped, and she does not have a prominent v-line. In terms of the Korean beauty standard, Jeongyeon's skin is on the tanner side. Her body is straight or rectangle-shaped. Jeongyeon fits into the golden ratio of 1:8.
Sana has a slim figure and a high nose bridge. The idol has big eyes with double eyelids, a v-shaped jawline, and heart-shaped lips. Sana has fair skin as well. While fans in the past have debated her height, it is agreed that she is most likely below 165cm in height. Sana is one of the most popular members of TWICE, with many falling for her cute charms and aegyo.
Mina has a small face with a defined v-shaped jawline, heart-shaped lips, a small nose, and double eyelids. Like her members, she has a slim figure. The idol's complexion is also on the fairer side. Mina is shorter than 165cm and has a fit body type, but it is not considered an hourglass figure.
Nayeon has a slim body and a small face with a v-shaped jaw. The TWICE member also has a small nose with a high nose bridge, double eyelids, a heart-shaped upper lip, and a fair skin tone. Nayeon, with her proportionate body and slim waist, has an hourglass figure. She is, however, below 165cm tall.
Tzuyu is the tallest member of TWICE and is said to stand at 170cm tall. The maknae of the group, Tzuyu, has a slim figure and a small face, a small nose with a high nose bridge, heart-shaped lips, and double eyelids. Tzuyu is often called curvy due to her thin waist and her thicker thighs, with many agreeing that she has an hourglass figure. Tzuyu has amazing proportions and adheres to the golden ratio of 1:8. Her only two drawbacks are that her skin is considered tan by the Korean beauty standard, and her face is more round than v-shaped.
Again, beauty is subjective. This article is based on the Korean beauty standard and is not a definitive way to determine beauty. That is up to you!
