Back to this week’s feature!
DoYoung is famous as a member of the globally-loved boy group NCT. Not only is the group known for their musicality that steals the hearts of K-Pop fans, but they are also known for being extremely handsome. The same applies to DoYoung. Not only is he extremely talented both on stage and on the screen, but he is a sight to behold.
DoYoung usually gets praised for his superior idol and actor visuals. However, today, we’ll take a look at his model potential.
Firstly, we have to open the article with a sentence that is often used to describe DoYoung’s visuals by fans,
“He looks like he just walked out of a manhwa.”
His visuals are the type of handsome that one would think are only possible to find in webtoons.
Besides his overall good-looking aura. One of the focal points of DoYoung’s beauty is his eyes. Accenting his delicate features, his sharp eyes call you to look into them and appreciate his striking appeal.
DoYoung would be a perfect model for any brand due to one simple fact: his duality.
He can go from serene angelic visuals in one moment…
… to showing extreme intensity and alluring magnitude.
Combine his duality with his tall height, broad shoulders, and chiseled abs; and any company would be lucky to have him as the ambassador for their product.
The pictorials he has done thus far are all masterpiece-worthy. Every single one of them is worth being hung up in a hall of fame or art museum honoring his glowing looks.
Lastly, let’s take a moment to appreciate his golden smile. His smile lights up any room that he is in and we have full confidence that even his photoshoots wouldn’t need extra lighting as the glow comes from within him.
If you knew nothing about K-Pop or NCT, DoYoung would definitely seem like a model at first glance. Do you agree?
