Non-Korean idols are common in the K-Pop world. Many of our favorite bias hail from overseas. Some are just of a different ethnicity, and some are a mix of Korean blood with another. You can usually tell by the first glance who’s Korean and who has a mixture of different ethnicities. They usually have deep protruding eyebrow bones and a tall bridged nose, characteristics that are generally hard to come by in Korean genetics.
