On top of composing, singing, rapping and dancing, there are idols who add yet another skill on their resume and that’s drawing.

Here are idols that are gifted in drawing/painting.

Yura (Girls Day)

In the past Yura studied pencil drawing and actually graduated from an arts high school. She is able to draw and paint realistic pictures such as people and landscapes extremely well.

Check out the drawing she made of Hong Jong-hyun while they were on We Got Married.


Aside from being an incredible rapper, Mino is gifted in the art department. He often spends his free time creating sketches and posting them to his Instagram. For the latest Journey to the West spin-off Kang’s Kitchen Mino personally drew the art pieces in the restaurant.  

Check out one of the pieces below.

Jaekyung (Former Rainbow)

When Jaekyung when to university she majored in fashion design. She is able to draw just about anything and while she has now become a full-time actor, I’d love to see more of her works.

Check out her creating graphic design work in a collaboration with Manta.

Seulgi (Red Velvet)

While Seulgi is most known for her powerful dance moves, she has also got an artist’s touch. When Red Velvet visited Taeyeon on her reality show Daily Taeng9cam she drew a portrait of Taeyeon which was incredibly accurate.

Check out the clip below.

Key (SHINee)

Key has always had an eye for art, in fact he actually drew the album cover for SHINee’s album "The Misconceptions of Us". He’s also been appointed the fashion director of the group after he worked on numerous successful projects as a fashion designer.

Check out the "The Misconceptions of Us" album cover by Key.


While she hasn’t posted any of her art recently, which is completely understandable with her incredibly busy work schedule, Suzy can seriously draw. Hopefully when she gets some free time she’ll post something new.

Check out her drawing of Ian Somerhalder back in 2014.

Naeun (Apink)

Probably the biggest surprise of the list but Naeun is a very good drawer. While it seems to be just a hobby, she is very interested in art. Naeun likes to visit art museums and galleries, posting her favourite pieces to her personal Instagram account.

Check out her drawing skills when she was selected for the Idol Drawing Competition by The Star.
