Visuals are an important part of the K-Pop culture. Not only does this include visuals, hair and makeup on stage but also off stage – during promotions, interviews, appearances and sometimes even airport wear for that matter. Cameras are on these celebrities all the time and so it is essential to maintain an image that is lucrative and sleek at all times, even when you might think the cameras are not around.
As such, several idols have adopted a personal style. Style obviously also includes hair and hair makes or breaks a man. Man buns are totally a hit or a miss depending on who’s wearing them. For some idols, they’re a megahit as they look like princes in a man bun hairstyle. Here are some idols that have sported the man bun because guys with man buns sure have more fun!
