For the longest of time, Asians were not usually put on the highlight of ‘good looks’. The world saw double-eyelids, thick lips, and ‘bigger assets’ to be the typical features when it comes to looking good.

Thankfully, this era is all about a change in direction from the traditionally attractive aspect. More people are appreciative of Asians’ looks now. Woohoo!

To prove this positive change, The 100 Most Beautiful Faces series created by TC Chandler, where each year the list will name 100 of the most gorgeous ladies from around the world, have added more Asian people into the list.

We’ve got a variety of these hotties too. They’re from South Korea, Japan, Taiwan, China, India and more!

It seems like the world can’t get enough of Asians anymore. Thanks to the ever-expanding KPOP influence, South Koreans have been spreading the yellow fever like fire.

Many great boyband members were named in this list with BTS’ V coming out on top of everyone else. Even the late Jonghyun wasn’t discounted either from the list.

Well, with such an angelic face like Jonghyun’s how could he NOT be in the list right?

Well, tell us who is your favourite on this list? Is there anyone else you’d like to see added in here as well?
