[TRANS] 110731 Korean Men’s Reaction to ‘Onew is Popular Among Women’


I translated some comments from postings related to Onew’s popularity from BULLPEN,
one of the biggest communities that Korean men usually talk about anything casually.

The posting titles are usually,
‘i don’t understand why Onew is loved by so many girls’,
‘The most popular member in each group I don’t understand.’,
‘How girls think about Onew is same as how we think about Taeyeon.’ etc etc. LOL
(I’m not joking this kind of subject has been discussed in so many communities for years.)
They rarely bring up male idols, but sometimes they do talk about them.

It’s a bit long, but hope you enjoy and get an idea how Korean men think about him.
(I am sure there are some comments made by women too, but mostly by guys.)

————————————————————————————————
– His face isn’t something unique or special, but for what many people say about him,
he must have his own charm to be that popular.

– For women using the internet a lot, it’s impossible not to know Onew.
In Internet communities like daum cafes and Bestiz where are mostly for women,
so many of them pick him as their ideal type, seriously.
I think many people already know he is the most popular member too. ㅋㅋ
I have lots of female friends in my university talking that they like him.
By what I’ve heard, I think I’ll start to like him too. ㅋㅋ

– Onew.. I think he’s cute but has an ordinary face, ordinary dongsaeng image?

– Just think about why IU is popular. Onew’s popularity is same as hers, cute dongsaeng image.

– Isn’t he the typical ‘Hun-Nam (heartwarming man)’ type man?
I absolutely understand why he is popular.
If I were to look like him, I would uplod my picture to brag on here everyday..

– Asking ‘Why Onew is popular? I don’t get it.’ is same as
‘Why are Taeyeon and Suzy so popular? Why do men think they are pretty?
They just look so average.’.

– He looks cute when he especially smiles, but he isn’t that good looking.

– He has a cute dongsaeng image, but I heard he’s the most popular member.
When I watched SM Concert in Paris on TV,
it seemed he was also popular among western girls, was surprising.

– I first thought, ‘Onew is an idol means anyone can be idol.’,
but he was just ‘The-more-I-look-the-more-I-get-interested-in’ type. Hard to get bored of him.
He can be also loved by international fans who love typical Asian man looking.
He sings well, behaves in an exemplary manner, and is tidy.
Most importantly he’s one of those who have the most beautiful voices.
In a way, he also has a good sense of humor. That’s why he’s popular, I guess?

– It’s because Onew seems very good-natured, and importantly he doesn’t have double eyelid.

– It seems Onew’s attractive, but a bit ordinary.

– I think I like Onew because of his attitude.

– Onew isn’t the only popular idol having an oridinary face,
but also JYJ’s Junsu, Wooyoung and Yoseob.

– People think ‘Hun-Nam (heartwarming man)’ is only loved in the music industry,
but it isn’t true, look at those popular actors, they aren’t also that good looking, just ‘Hun-Nam’.

– He has a very ordinary face, but because of his image, soft, good-natured and good-mannered,
girls love him, I think.

– Onew has 2 different charms at one go, most girls say.
Just think about what type of woman men love.
We love women looking pure and having a calm face. It’s the same.

– In idol fandoms, the most popular members are usually
who sing well and funny on variety shows. That’s why.
But even so, I personally don’t understand why he’s popular, don’t women love ‘a bad boy’?
He behaves extremely nice and polite that women never get interested in,
not a bad guy at all I thought, but I was wrong.

– Since I got interested in male idols, I’ve been mostly surprised at Onew, Wooyoung, Yoseob,
who are the most popular members in their fandoms.
It was hard to understand as a man, but I kind of get why now
They are all cute and having familiar lookings like ‘The Boy Next Door’.

– It’s like, the more girls look at Onew, the more they find his endless charm.
You know he looks good-hearted, gentle and neat having a Hun-Nam dongsaeng image.
I personally don’t like a woman or man having a boringly beautiful face,
so I think he’s good looking to me.

– It seems men usually say Onew isn’t that good looking,
but with having no double eyelid, he’s handsome.

– If I were a girl, I would ask him to go out..

– As a matter of fact, it’s the same case as how men look at Taeyeon and IU.
I think Onew gives most people a good impression because of his smile and personality.

– Onew isn’t average good looking guy, but girls love the kind of look.
By the way, he’s the most popular member, right?

– I heard his nickname is ‘Dubu’ because of his soft, gentle and kind image.
His voice color is also unique. I feel good when looking at his smiley face.
I definitely think he has a charm to be #1 in the fandom.

– I think he’s popular in public more than fandom.

– Hur.. Onew, Wooyoung and Junsu,
the most popular member overwhelmingly in their fandoms?
Don’t you think they aren’t good looking for being idols?

– Don’t you think Onew is cute?
As a man, what I think is he’s cute having a baby face that girls fall in love.

– Men usually love pretty and cute idols, but women usually have a wide choice of idols.
They mostly prefer who’s attractive than who looks good.

– Don’t you think Onew is definitely the one that many girls feel comfortable with?
His appearance is the general trend in the past few years.

– Many guys don’t understand why Onew is that popular,
but you know it’s the same, women would react same as us
when we tell them Taeyeon is the most popular member than Yoona and Yuri.
I think Onew is attractive, neat and good looking.
I don’t think it’s necessary to be super hansome to be popular.

– I heard Onew’s fandom is the biggest one.

– Taeyeon isn’t popular only for her look. Onew’s case is the same.

– Having a charm is more important than look for idols.

– I think Onew is also popular among female idols by what has been said on the radio and TV.
His appearance is something girls think very attractive, I think.

– I don’t know if he’s popular or not,
but only name popping up in my head when thinking of SHINee is Onew.
I think it’s because his name is unique or what?

– Girls love Onew so much because of his soft image and voice.

– Women usually like a man looking like Tofu.
(You know people started to use the term of ‘Dubu type face’ after Onew. ㅋㅋㅋ)

– I’m a man, but I agree with his soft image is very attractive..
What I know is Song-Joongki, Park-Haeil, Onew, Park-Yunchun, etc are popular among women.

– Taeyeon VS Onew
They sing well, popular in fandom, leaders, smile and do aegyo a lot on TV, actually shy in real life.
I think they are alike.

– Taeyeon and Onew are ‘=’, not ‘VS’.
I’m an active user on Bestiz and here,
so I know how they are treated by both male and female fans.

– I’m not gay, but why I get more and more into Onew every time I listen to him singing?
His voice is so good.

– How women think about Taeyeon is same as how men think about Onew.

– Is it only me, as a man, thinking he’s cute and good at aegyo?;;

– I like Onew. ㅋㅋㅋ
I noticed he was very popular when I saw him in SNSD’s Concerts.
First, he sings well and looks kind. ㅋㅋ

– He is the most popular member, I heard.

– I was surprised he was that popular..

– I talked with many ladies in their mid 20’s few days ago
and we suddenly brought up idols, SNSD, SHINee, 2PM and etc.
All of them liked Onew, I was surprised..

– It’s because Onew has everything, his look and voice that can make Noonas fulfil their fantazies.
Many female friends of mine also go crazy about him.

– I like Onew because he looks very easy-going.

– Perhaps because Onew’s look is like anyone can be comfortable with.
He isn’t that good looking, but his warm look never gives people dislike feeling on him, I think.
For such reasons, no wonder why Onew and Taeyeon are popular.

– Such a nice looking boy. I think he’s the nicest one among idols.

– He isn’t handsome like what we usually talk about ‘handsome’,
but girls might love his pure looking..

– I was so surprised at Onew is popular, but if so, there must be reasons.

– I’m a man, not gay or anything, but I like Onew the most if I have to pick one male idol. *_*

– Don’t you think Onew is cute? Don’t you think he’s super nice and soft?
I like him the most among male idols.

– He looks like a Junior-hight student. I sort of started to like him since he sang with Jessica.

– I like Onew’s voice and think his attitude is good. Who says he isn’t good looking?
He looks good, huh? I’ve heard he’s really popular. I can absolutely understand that.

– Everyone’s been saying Onew is popular and guys don’t understand that,
for years. ㅋㅋ

– In fact, Onew is the one who gets many votes as the ideal man
from women in their teens and mid 20’s overwhelmingly, but guys don’t know this.
I’ve been active in Soul Dresser, Bestize and here over recent years,
so I know whom women and men like.

– I’ve seen him on variety shows. He has a good voice and sings well.

– I like Onew. His look doesn’t wow me but his voice absolutely wow-s me.

– Onew is very likable, isn’t he? I’m not gay, but It’s strange if you don’t like his smiley face.

– I think he has a soft voice and is tender-hearted that girls go crazy about.

– Some guys still think 2PM is the number one, but Onew is the number one for individual popularity.

– I don’t know why I recently like him a lot especailly because of his unique voice?
He seems good-natured and has a nice smile. +_+
Oh, I like the songs he sang with Jessica and Kim-Yeonwoo.

– Isn’t it like he’s also popular among men?
I personally like him the most among male idols… His voice is superb.
