By  | 

The good looks of BTS’ V continue to wow people worldwide!

BTS’ V once again impressed with his stunning visuals, securing the top spot on I-Magazine’s annual Fashion Face AwardsAsian Male category.

After the analysis of more than 12,000 photos and videos published in 2018, the singer was crowned the Best Fashion Face among Asian males with votes from over 30 countries and 350 professional photographers, designers, make-up artists, stylists, editors, and the publication’s in-house team in United Kingdom, Hong Kong, China, and South Korea.

V, whose real name is Kim Tae Hyung, was praised for the nice proportion of his face and for his well-defined facial structures. “When the heavy make-up [is] gone, the unique facial features are showing sharply right away — very nice proportion,” commented film and art director Stefania Lonetti. Meanwhile, Tim Owen, an Adobe certified software expert, said the BTS member has “well-defined chin, straight nose bridge, and outstanding downward-turned lips”.

I-Magazine’s recognition of V’s good looks is not a first for the singer as he constantly leads list of most handsome or beautiful people in the world including TC Candler’s annual 100 Most Handsome Faces. In 2018, he took the number one spot on Famous Star 101’s list of Most Handsome Man in the World. Most recently, he was crowned the Top Asian Heartthrob by Starmometer.
