It probably goes without saying that Asians generally look way younger than their actual age, but this is cranked up to a whole new level when it comes to K-pop stars!

In an interesting new thread over on Reddit, K-pop fans got into a fascinating discussion about idols who look WAY younger than their actual age. With Reddit being the home to a large number of fans who have diverse tastes and interests, the answers were certainly very interesting.

Here are some K-pop stars who fans think look much younger than they actually are:

  • I thought Woozi is 15 and the maknae of seventeen just because he looks so young and cute. Boi I was wrong.

  • Kim Yeonji from Seeya is another case of being ageless. I would have never believed she was in her 30s. And Sandara Park from 2NE1 was the oldest member yet looked the youngest out of the 4 girls.

  • Someone please tell me how Boram was 30 here and looks like about 12/13?

  • Irene (Red Velvet) is older then Seohyun (SNSD). I still don't 100% believe Irene is that old.

  • Eun Jiwon is about six months away from hitting 40, which is kind of incredible.

  • Suga drank from the same fountain of youth of Xiumin as almost 5 years into their career he has not aged since debut.

  • EXO's eldest member Kim Minseok (aka Xiumin) is a 90-liner but looks younger than EXO's maknae who is a 94-liner... I think it's because of his facial structure (big eyes, delicate jaw) but he's known to be a very disciplined person so I wouldn't be surprised if he stuck to a strict skin regime (in conjunction to frequent visits to the dermatologist) to maintain his youthful glow

  • Btob Minhyuk is a 90-liner but he is constantly getting high school student roles in dramas.

  • Exo's Xiumin(27) & Winner's Jinwoo(26), both are the eldest in their teams but they can easily pass for the maknaes
    also xiumin's power in exoplanet is freeze xD
