    How Important Is Physical Attractiveness To You (For Kpop Groups/Idols You Follow/Stan)?

    [​IMG]

    Hello.

    Time for a discussion topic.


    Stanning groups and idols is part of the game here in Kpop Land.

    Some do it for the music. Some for the personality/charm. Some for the pretty.

    Some for a combination of those.


    Is it important that a group or idol be physically attractive to you for the purposes of gaining your interest?

    How important? (Try to be as honest as possible. Be confident and don't feel ashamed!)

    Take the Poll!



    Eman's Stance:
    It's extremely important for me.

    I love the music. Honestly I do. And my main groups I follow feature music I truthfully care about.

    That said, they are also always groups/idols I find visually attractive.

    I seek out groups/idols I find attractive visually that also feature music I enjoy.

    I'd say my hierarchy follows this progression:

    Visuals > Personality/Charm > Music

    Since I'm asking for a numerical value... Mine is 10.

    That's not to say I don't listen to music put out by groups/idols I don't find as attractive. But in terms of deciding who to follow/stan, I focus on groups I find pretty.


    (Note: In reality I am not quite so superficial. But for kpop purposes, looks are an ever-present concern for me personally.


    (I know no surprise there. ;) )

    My first bias was Kang DaeSung. So, it wasn't important to me in the beginning. And it doesn't matter much to me tbvh.. its just a bonus.. I always have and will care more for the music.. ^^

    there are so many gorgeous idols, but I cant get into their group of their music, so...

    I have a hard time quantifying it but I put a 2 because I had no clue.
    It's always nice to look at good-looking people, I'm shallow in that way too but as far as stanning groups, it doesn't matter at all. I find some of the groups I stan not that attractive. For example, BAP to me, isn't exactly impressive in terms of visuals, the only one I find truly attractive is Youngjae. So physical attractiveness isn't really a criteria to me at least or I'd be stanning completely different groups than the ones I am following.

    looks are not that important to me, but with idols interesting "personalities" is about as important as music with me.

    Not that important, music and the idol/group being entertaining is more important if they are gonna keep my interest, I wouldn't follow them just for pictures

    Well we all like looking at pretty things/beings/people. I'll give it a 5.

    Ah well, we have completely different criterias to stan idols in the first place. :D
    But I have no problem admitting that I like looking at good-looking people which I consider shallow in itself (I mean, I usually chose my sigs in terms of aesthetics). But it's just not a major criteria for me in terms of stanning while I suppose it is for you. Difference in reasoning in the first place, that's all ; but we both (and most people) enjoy watching pretty looking things in general.

    I don't know how to rate it tbh. If i'd care i'd stan AOA (seolhyun), so maybe 2-3? I really think that all the groups have really pretty members, so there're in all the groups at least 1 atractive member for me :p

    As others have pointed out, you can't see their faces when listening to the song. Also, I find almost everyone in kpop attractive to some degree so at this point being attractive isn't that special and is definitely not a good reason to stan a group since there are groups that are attractive and can sing/dance as well.
    For me, it's music/personality>visuals.
