Here’s why photos of aespa’s Winter standing close to 4 handsome male idols went viral

Are they recreating a Kpop version of “Boys Over Flowers” at KBS Gayo Daechukje 2021?

After KBS Gayo Daechukje 2021 (KBS Song Festival 2021) took place on December 17 with the participation of many famous idols groups, a fansite preview taken during the ending stage when all artists performed the song ‘All For You’  went viral because it looks like an idol version of the iconic drama “Boys Over Flowers”. 

Specifically, this moment was captured by a fansite of SEVENTEEN’s Mingyu. However, not only Mingyu but 4 other idols also appear in the photo: aespa’s Winter at the front, SEVENTEEN’s Vernon, Joshua and NU’EST’s Minhyun from left to right respectively.

The first reason why this photo is trending is because of the heart-fluttering height difference between Mingyu and Winter. Mingyu is 1m86 tall, while Winter is 1m64. This huge difference of 22cm makes Winter look extra tiny with Mingyu standing behind her.

Another reason why this photo makes netizens excited is because this is the first time Minhyun and Winter are in the same frame. Many netizens have always thought that the two look somewhat similar. Now that they actually stood close to each other in real life, the resemblance is even more obvious.

Minhyun and Winter sharing the same frame is fascinating to many fans because the two have always been considered to look alike

The most important reason why many netizens find this photo fascinating is because of the visual combination of these 5 idols. Winter and Mingyu being front and center already create a visual explosion, but even Vernon, Joshua and Minhyun in the back also have outstanding looks. This frame reminds fans of ‘Boys Over Flowers‘ featuring Winter as Geum Jandi while other 4 handsome male idols are the legendary F4.
