Welcome to the third article of Kpopmap's weekly series "Idol vs. Model"!

This series will explore some of the idols who have so much modeling potential that people who see them for the first time might confuse them with models instead of K-Pop idols. 

EXO's Kai opened the series for us, followed by SF9's Yoo TaeYang. Readers voted for CIX's Bae JinYoung in our weekly poll (at the end of the article) to be featured this week.

Today we will be getting to know more about the visual genius that is CIX's Bae JinYoung! 

Bae JinYoung is well-known as a member of the boy group CIX and for his activities as a solo artist. He has been popular since his days in the boy group Wanna One. Let's get to know more about him and his model-like visuals!

Bae JinYoung is 180 cm and stands tall making his clothing accent his proportions.

He has the ability to pull off many fashion looks and it makes us wonder how he is going to experiment with fashion next.

There isn't an outfit out there that he can't pull off.

Not to mention that his face is simply handsome.

Even the sun agrees with us and follows him around like a halo.

We especially love when he shows off his muscular arms in sleeveless tops!

Lastly, we just need a moment to marvel at him with pushed-back tousled hair and glasses because they are two aesthetics that we didn't know we needed to see. Now that we've seen them, we can't get enough.

If you knew nothing about K-Pop or CIX, Bae JinYoung would definitely seem like a model at first glance. Do you agree?

Korean and Int'l have different standard about beauty especially because he has small face which is one of beauty standards in Korea but not internationally. But small or big face, they shouldn't denied he has unique feature with big eyes, small but full lips, sharp jaws, and wide shoulder that make him look so beautiful. Kpop fans should praise him more. He should be in more magazine, more appearance on TV, more recognition.
