FILA / DAZED KOREA / MARIE CLAIRE

These days, K-Pop idols are oftentimes known to dabble into other forms of entertainment aside from singing. Some go on to be successful actors, variety show hosts, CEOs of companies, producers, songwriters, video games developers, brand ambassadors, etc. But more often than most, K-Pop idols usually serve more like models for various brands and gracing many magazine covers. 

Brands and magazines tend to seek out K-Pop idols to promote a certain product or service, a new trend, or for your everyday fashion photo spread. This is because of the wide range of audience/fans that these idols have and who can in turn become readers of their publications or users of their products. 

Some of the key characteristics of a model are stunning visuals, incredible physique, charismatic and charming personalities, and being photogenic. These are some of the unique features models have and in this article, we will be looking at 10 K-Pop idols who could double as models.
