Sehun, Jungkook, Jennie, Irene and more made the list too
As E! News’ Morgan Stewart so aptly put it, BLACKPINK’s Lisa definitely puts the “boom” in “Boombayah”!
And now the K-pop queen has nabbed yet another accolade for her stunning looks: The Thai idol tops this year’s TCCAsia’s Most Beautiful Faces in Asia 2019 list for the first time ever.
Fellow bandmates Jennie, Rosé and Jisoo also made it to the list, coming in at number 3, 13 and 22 respectively.
Other female Korean celebrities who made it to the long-running list of beautiful faces include Girls’ Generation’s Yoona, who took number 6, and Red Velvet’s Irene who rounded out the list at number 10.
Also recently announced were the Instagram follower race.
Instagram has a new queen in Korea, and it’s none other than super girl group BLACKPINK’s Lisa!
The position was confirmed today, with Lisa overtaking previous title holder, EXO’s Chanyeol, by roughly 10,000 followers on the social media channel. Both currently have 17.4 million followers, and that number is set to grow this month, with BLACKPINK performing at Coachella, and starting their US leg of their world tour.
Other than Lisa and Chanyeol, who claimed the top spots, Lisa’s fellow group mates also nabbed spots in the top ten. Jennie currently ranks number 5 on the list with 15.1 million followers, while Rosé and Jisoo round out the list at number 9 and 10 respectively — Rosé has 13.2 million followers; Jisoo has 12.7 million.
Congratulations to Lisa on her latest win!
On the male front, EXO’s Sehun (above) took home the second spot on the list this year, with Chinese actor Xiao Zhan (below) taking home the top honours. BTS’ Jungkook and V also made it into the top 10 spots at positions 6 and 7 respectively, while GOT7’s Jackson Wang clinched fourth place.
