SHINee's Key talks about shaving as a male idol.

According to the September 1st episode of 'Yongjin Health Center', host Lee Yong Jin mentioned Key is the only member of SHINee who wears shorts and asked, "Do you shave?" Key responded, "I do it periodically... There's controversy recently over how much male idols should shave their armpits."

He continued, "I don't want to look like someone who hasn't gone through puberty. I just cleaned up because I had to film a music video."

In other news, Key recently made a solo comeback with "Gasoline".

People without armpit hair or pubes look like mannequins to me. It's fine to trim it down and keep it nice and tamed, but no hair at all looks creepy as fuck. Maybe the industry is trying to make them look like someone who hasn't gone through puberty, which is even creepier.


I think the last idol I saw with armpit hair was Taemin in Advice .

It is rather sad that the norm has become for women and now more for men too to "look like someone who hasn't gone through puberty" as to quote Key.
Body hair is natural. Why should adults mimic the bodies of children..
Of course everyone can do what they want with their hair. It's just mean that an unshaven women is often called disgusting.
