Korean netizens say they thought these male idols were foreigners or multiracial

AKP STAFF

Netizens talked about their first impressions of male idols who 'did not look purely Korean' based on their appearances.

On a community forum, netizens mentioned a list of idols whom they were surprised to find out that they were 100% Korean by blood. Judging by their appearances, the netizens reckoned that they might be from ethnically diverse backgrounds.

Some thought that idols such as Seventeen's S.Coups and BTS's V were mixed-race, and one writer even relayed that Highlight's Dongwoon was once taken to be a foreigner by a random passer-by in the streets. Although these idols were foreigners, netizens talked about how they were still able to fool their friends by saying that they were not Korean.

They include:

BTS's V

VIXX's Ken

Seventeen's S.Coups

ASTRO's Rocky

MONSTA X's Hyungwon

VICTON's Sejun

Pentagon's Wooseok

Highlight's Dongwoon

TXT's Taehyun

SF9's Taeyang

Some reactions include:


"Sejun looks exotic as in he looks like a legit vampire..."

"Can't believe Hyungwon is from Gwangju"

"Lol, I'm a carat and my friend still thinks S.Coups is non-Korean"

"Taeyang!! That pic is taken with a phone without any filters and he looks legit mixed-race"

"I always think that they boys are international everytime I see them"

"Even Hueningkai thought Taehyun was mixed-race"

"Those facial structures...wow"

"Never forget that they are all fully Korean"

Did you think that any of these idols were 'non-Korean' at first?
