Wanna One and NU`EST’s Minhyun Is The Number One Idol Who Looks Better Off-Camera, Survey Says

By  | 

There’s literally no more room to doubt the visuals of Wanna One and NU`EST’s Minhyun!

Wanna One and NU`EST member Hwang Minhyun is named the number one idol who looks better in real life than on camera!

The vocalist from two famous boy groups in Korea emerges as the winner of a recent survey ran by Idol Champ. The mobile app, which regularly runs polls about K-Pop, posted the question “which idols are famous for looking better in real life than on screen?” and gathered votes from July 28 to August 1.

Minhyun has gotten attention since his stint in the second season of Produce 101 thanks to his stunning looks and amazing voice. OSEN notes that “even in airport photos where most of his face is covered, the sight of Minhyun still screams “idol” from head to toe”. In fact, he has even earned the nickname “Hwang Beauty” from his fans!

Another proof of his fans’ love for him is their all-out birthday gift for the idol last August 9! Fans bought broadcast TV advertisement space to air their birthday greetings for Minhyun – making him the first member for both Wanna One and NU`EST to have a birthday ad aired on television.

Minhyun triumphs with a total vote of 46.9% over EXO’s leader Suho, who lands at the number two spot with 45.8% – a pretty close fight, if you ask us!

Apink’s Hayoung takes the third spot with 2.3% votes. Despite not winning, Hayoung takes the title of “highest ranking female idol” on the poll as the only girl who made it to the top three.

Other artists who made it to the list include HIGHLIGHT’s Dongwoon (4th), PRISTIN’s Kyulkyung (5th), TVXQ’s Changmin (6th), VICTON’s Sejun (7th), T-ara’s Jiyeon (8th), Suzy (9th), and SNSD’s Seohyun (10th).
