CNN chose their very own list of Korea's 20 Hottest Male Celebs through an internet panel, and has finally revealed their interesting results!

CNN explained, “Without there being a single woman in doubt, these gentlemen are carrying out their excellence in skills from acting, modeling, to singing.”

Some of those in the list are my personal favorites, But for me So Ji sub (Ji-seob So) should be no 1 in this list! ^^

I add their recognitions, to assure that they deserve to be called "South Korea’s 20 Hottest Male Celebs "

I am a straight man, but even I can see how eastern men are much more charming than western men, most notable Japanese and Koreans. Well done.

I agree with Veed, and I say that as a woman.
Very nice list, I think I'll add some of them in my "Asian actors" or "Asian charm" list
