Being a celebrity itself is not an easy thing, but these idols are so talented that they are even called “global stars” by fans!
These artists are not only famous in Korea, but also well-known around the world. Let’s see why they’re called “global stars”:
Jin (BTS) – Worldwide Handsome
Although the name “Worldwide handsome” is Jin created himself, but later plastic surgeons have confirmed that Jin own a face with gold ratios, the standard of beauty that can be applied everywhere. From there, the phrase “worldwide handsome” became Jin’s trademark.
In fact the story of the nickname “Worldwide handsome” was also very interesting. In an interview, when RM said that he would watch FRIENDS series to learn English, Jin said that he liked to watch this movie, but the only English phrase he learned from it was just “worldwide handsome”.
Nana (AFTER SCHOOL) – World’s Beautiful Face
Nana was the only female idol to win the top spot in the world’s most beautiful faces poll in 2014 and 2015. Many people commented that Nana owns Asian features, but still looks powerful. Not only does Nana own a beautiful face, her body is also perfect with long legs and great proportions that make people jealous.
BTS – Global Idol
The number of BTS fans now extends throughout the world. BTS is currently the most widely known Kpop idol group on a global scale. In 2017, BTS was recognized worldwide when they beat Justin Bieber, and won the Billboard’s Top Social Artist. Besides, BTS is also the most influential artist in Asia, and many other countries in the world.
PSY – Global artist
Gangnam Style put PSY on the global scale when he got the opportunities to perform at major venues in New York, Paris or even being invited by President Obama to perform at the White House in 2012. Thanks to the hit, PSY’s reputation has spread around the world, and even able to approach Lady Gaga and Nicki Minaj’s status.
