With all the strong potential that she proved everyone through her series of projects, there's no doubt that Joy is one of the most beautiful faces of K-pop today.

9. Sejeong (Gugudan)

Bright, smiling, and a very lovable person that will give you a happy and positive vibes is the leader of Gugudan, Kim Se-jeong. Her smile is like a sunshine in the morning that instantly cheers you up, but little did we know that behind those smiles is the hardships of her past, especially because she and her brother was raised by their mother alone, and she haven't talked to her father until her third year of middle school. But Sejeong is a determined girl, and in 2016 she joined Produce 101 Season 1, where she was called as "God Sejeong" and won a second place. Then, she became a member of the girl group I.O.I, and later she debuted in Jellyfish Entertainment 's new group, Gugudan.

Her cute personality is her winning asset every time she appears on TV, especially when she's guesting in variety and talk shows. With her natural humor and skills in variety, she is labeled as "Variety Cheat Key" in Talents for Sale, and now, she is also a cast member for Netflix original Korean game show, "Busted!" Besides being playful and active in extreme shows, she is also a promising actress as seen in the drama, School 2017, where she won the Best New Actress at KBS Drama Awards. We definitely want to see more of happy and vibrant Sejeong in the future!

8. Seulgi (Red Velvet)

Another ultimate girl crush from Red Velvet is the gorgeous Kang Seul-gi. With sharp eyes, nice nose, and plump lips, she is indeed very appealing. Her favorite fashion style, which are usually chick and dark, matches with her fierce look that gives off a sexy and hot aura. She is like a wild fire that you want to stare when everything goes dark, especially when she's dancing on stage, where she owns your heart like a queen. But she can also look innocently cute when she's simply guesting for interviews.

In fact, there are male celebrities who confess that they like Seulgi. Without hesitation, BTOB's Eunkwang chose her as the most beautiful idol in the music industry, while CNBlue's Jonghyun was a bit shy when he admits that he liked her the most. Even Monsta X's Jooheon cannot hide his feelings when fans asked him which girl group is his favorite, to where he chose Red Velvet and wrote Seulgi's name! But who wouldn't be a fan of this pretty lady? Not just good-looking, but she is also a friendly butterfly who is friends with Super Junior’s Kyuhyun, f (x)’s Sulli and Krystal, and Mamamoo's Moonbyul. She is also a calm and a simple girl who likes drawing, Pringles, collecting pens, and the color orange.

7. Momo (Twice)

Do you agree that she looks a little bit like the Japanese actress, Kanna Hashimoto? Well, it's because she is a Japanese too! Hirai Momo, the main dancer for the famous girl group, Twice, is a 22-years old talent from Kyoto, Japan who was scouted by JYP. She is an incredible dancer who has an intense passion since she was a child. Inspired by her sisters' skill, Momo started taking dance lessons when she was just 3 years old, in high hopes that she can follow her steps. She can also break the dance floor because she is also good in hip-hop and urban.

But there's so much more than about her than being a dancing machine. She is also known as the "eating machine" because she is a certified food lover! This could be the reason why she had to go on a terrifying diet before she debuted as an idol. She was able to lose 7kg in a week, but she looked really pale and sick, so the other members were very worried. However, right after the debut, her love of eating remains unchanging, and she immediately gained the 7kg she lost. That's why she's given us the best advice about food: "If you think it will make you fat, it will make you fat. If you enjoy food, it has zero calories."

6. Jisoo (Blackpink)

She has the face of a flower, and a heart of an angel. Not all idols can be as peaceful, calming, and innocent as her. A beautiful girl inside and out is none other than the Blackpink's visual and face of the group, Kim Ji-soo. Born on January 3, 1995, she is not only popular for being a member of the hottest girl group today, but she was always famous in their school for her kindness. Students from the same middle school described her as "nice, bright, and super pretty, but now she's prettier." She even doze a lot while in classes and has a her original goofy 4D personality! No wonder why she is the best mood maker among Blackpink members! She might be the oldest member, but she is the most energetic and playful, and she really likes to laugh a lot.

But on a more serious side, Jisoo is actually a white belt holder in Taekwondo, so she is a nice fighter too. She can also understand English well, but she's embarrassed to speak it. She was also an Inkigayo MC for almost a year, where audiences loved her personality and character, that's why she earned the nickname "Boy Crush". No wonder why Samuel Kim confessed that he has a crush on Jisoo!

5. Somi (I.O.I)

Our 17-year old Jeon Somi rose to fame after she's declared as the champion of Produce 101 S1. She was the center of I.O.I, but now she's proving everyone that she can also be a bright star on her own. Somi, whose real name is Ennik Somi Douma, is of Canadian-Dutch descent on her father's side, and Korean on her mother's side. Though she is of mixed race, her family moved to South Korea when she was just a year old. She grew up being bullied in her school for being a half Korean. But it doesn't stop her determination. She became a third-degree black-belt holder in Taekwondo, and she graduated in middle school last year. Today, she is attending high school as a freshman.

At a young age of 15, she participated in the girl group reality show Sixteen, however, she was eliminated and didn't make it to become a member of Twice. But she grabbed success after joining PD101 where she finished in first place. Through this project, Somi was offered many TV appearances and was also selected for her first-ever solo endorsement deal for Fanta, a beverage under Coca-Cola Company. Right now, Somi is active on TV shows, while her debut as a solo artist is highly anticipated by fans. We can't wait to see her again, especially now that she's got a nice short haircut!

4. Nancy (Momoland)

When Momoland topped the charts with their hit song "Bboom Bboom", netizens also went crazy for Nancy's beauty as they came to realize how perfect her face is, especially her sculpted nose. Nancy, who is the center, visual, and the youngest member of Momoland, was born Nancy Jewel Mcdonie on April 13, 2000 in Daegu, South Korea, while her hometown is in Ohio, USA. Her father is American and her mother is Korean. She is really good in English, but she speaks confidently in Korean. In fact, her Korean name is Lee Seung Ri!

Besides being an idol in a K-pop group, our 18-year old pretty girl actually started to show off her strong potential to be in the entertainment world since she was a child. She was a child model and actress, and she joined a dance group called Cutie Pies and they auditioned in Korea's Got Talent. Her childhood photos revealed that her beauty is very natural! Apart from their group activities, Nancy is also venturing into the wider world of showbiz as she appears on web music drama, Some Light as the leading actress alongside ZE:A's Minwoo. Another web show where she was cast as one of the student members is Tooniverse's Nangam School Season 2. Her willpower to become successful is influenced by her role model, Krystal of f(x).

3. Lisa (Blackpink)

With her very strong appeal and stage presence, Lisa is definitely one of the best K-pop artists right now. Talented in dance and rap, she is really fit to be the lead rapper and main dancer of the most powerful girl group, Blackpink. Born on March 27, 1997 in Bangkok, Thailand as Pranpriya Manoban, her name was changed to Lalisa, which means "the praised one", and she deserves it because she is also labeled as "Thailand Princess" in her local place. She is childhood friends with Got7's Bambam, who has the same birthplace and nationality as her.

A really charismatic dancer who can also spit fire, you will never fail to fall for her style, talent, and everything about her. The award-winning choreographer Parris Goebel described her as the dancer who isn't made, but "the kind who is naturally blessed." However, other BP members said that Lisa is the most different personality offstage. While she is known for having a "cool girl" image, she's really goofy and mischievous offstage! She even got the nickname LaLi Con Artist because she cheats at board games! And of course, she is undoubtedly the cutest and the best in aegyo among BP members. That's why we know from the start that our girl can be something big because she is effortlessly confident in her moves!

2. Tzuyu (Twice)

Do you agree that she resembles a little bit like After School's Nana? Because of that, Tzuyu is getting attention for her beautiful face that is so irresistibly cute, bright, lovely, and yet, breathtakingly gorgeous. The 19-year old Taiwanese Goddess was born on June 14, 1999 and was discovered by JYP in 2012. Since then, she has moved to South Korea to train for more than two years. Then, she joined the reality show Sixteen, where she was successfully chosen to become one of the members for the project girl group, Twice.

Before her debut, fans are already drawn to her because of her angelic face and very attractive visuals. With a waist line of only 22 centimeters, who wouldn't be jealous of her glamorous physique? Plus, her sweet-looking eyes and beautiful set of teeth that shines brightly when she smiles is just too cute to handle! Her simple and adorable look made her the third placer in Gallup Korea survey for the most popular idol among young South Koreans in 2016, right behind Taeyeon and IU. It is also not surprising that she ranked 3rd again in the international list of "100 Most Beautiful Faces of 2017."

1. Irene (Red Velvet)

She looks elegantly beautiful even without doing anything, but she is prettier when she smiles. The queen of K-Pop visuals of this generation are none other than Bae Joo-Hyun, who is more popularly known for her stage name, Irene. Being the leader of an internationally famous group, Red Velvet, she is shaking the Korean showbiz world for her stunning beauty. She is so beautiful in person that other people say that she can be scary to approach because she is just so pretty. Even when we are seeing her bare-faced pictures, her no-makeup look is absolutely perfect and she is like a living doll!

Born on March 29, 1991, in Daegu, Irene continues to impress us by being the top choice for the latest female advertising model ranking, and that is why she is an ultimate girl crush to male K-celebrities, such as F.T. Island's Seunghyun and Jaejin, BTOB's Changsub, and EXO's Chanyeol. She is a nice girl who likes to collect journals and read literature, and she is strict when it comes to grammar and spellings, so you'd better be careful if you want to send her a letter! Indeed, she is a flawless girl who can be good-looking in all angles and aspects!
