Recently, a community board uploaded the above pictures with the title, “Boyfriend, Kwangmin! Transformation into a ‘warm city gentleman’ who can melt the winter“.
In the photos, Kwangmin is wearing a luxurious red scarf as he transformed into a winter man. The red scarf highlighted his sharp chin line and perfect face emphasizing, his maturity after the hairstyle change.
Netizens replied with, “I wish I was that scarf” and “He’s becoming more and more like a man“.
Twin brothers Kwangmin and Youngmin of rookie idol group ‘Boyfriend‘ have been highly praised for their resemblance to singer Kim Hyun Joong.
Ever since their debut, they’ve been dubbed as the ‘Kim Hyun Joong twins’. In fact, before they were singers, the boys guested on an SBS program, whose panelists pointed out that the boys looked very similar to the SS501 star. Kim Hyun Joong himself acknowledged that the twins did look like him, which drew even more interest from netizens and viewers alike.
During a recent interview with enews, Kwangmin and Youngmin remarked that those who felt they resembled their senior were “too kind“. “We saw him recently on a music program, and he was awesome. We thought to ourselves that we wanted to be like him in the future,” they said.
The twins continued, “Kim Hyun Joong is someone with a very strong aura, as well as a great stage presence. We want to follow in his footsteps, being loved and acknowledged not only in Korea, but overseas as well.”
They debuted only a few months ago in April, but Boyfriend is already showing signs of maturity with their recent “Don’t Touch My Girl” comeback.
Siting down for an interview with Star News, leader Donghyun stated, “Our debut stage was nerve-wracking, but I think we feel a lot more at ease now. We’ve been hearing that we’ve gotten a lot more masculine and tough. Do you think this is enough to be a dependable boyfriend?”
The members have undergone a huge image change. Instead of flashing his signature smile, Kwangmin now opts to speak with his strong gaze instead. “I’ve cut my hair shorter and practiced making masculine facial expressions every day,” he revealed.
Donghyun added, “We even bulked up for the album. I think our fans will be quite surprised to hear that we have muscles now.”
