Attraction Levels of Kpop Groups – U-KISS vs Super Junior vs NU’EST

We’re now a fourth way through with these posts, as the planning looks right now. This week I’ll be tackling another two groups, U-KISS and Super Junior, that have had some line-up changes, so to be specific: I’m only including the members that are officially part of the groups.

Here are the rules:

1. Between two and four groups of the same sex are chosen. (Almost all posts will be three groups, and most will be with male groups)

2. Each member within each group is presented through three pictures and scored from one to ten, based on how attractive I find them.

3. Each group’s average score is calculated and the winning group is announced.

4. The three members with the highest scores from each group go head to head, and an individual winner is announced.

5. Plenty of polls are added in the end so can you show how much you agree or disagree with me.

Piece of cake! Now let’s move on to the first group, U-KISS!


First Candidate: Soohyun




Soohyun has a very masculine and mature look, and most certainly looks his age. He could pass for older as well, which isn’t the most common when it comes to kpop idols. I do find him attractive, and I like the maturity, but I’ve never been much attracted to him.

Score: 6.5

Second Candidate: Kiseop




Kiseop is a tricky one for me. In the right hairstyle and styling he just blows me away (the ‘Neverland’ era was incredible) but at other times he does look a little strange to me. He has that look of an ulzzang/an anime character come to life. And that’s a great look! Sometimes.

Score: 7.5

Third Candidate: Eli




Eli is another tricky one. At times I find him to be so incredible sexy, and at other times he just looks like a guy that I could see walking down the street. A good-looking guy, for sure, but still just a normal guy.

Score: 7.5

Fourth Candidate: AJ




I feel very much the same way about AJ that I do about Eli; he just seems like a normal guy. Which is in no way a bad thing, but in the super-human world of kpop it seems a little mundane. I do find AJ quite attractive though.

Score: 7

Fifth Candidate: Hoon




Hoon is just another one of those people that I can see are attractive, but that I don’t feel attracted to. He’s a cute guy, for sure, but he’s not my type.

Score: 6.5

Final Candidate: Kevin




I find Kevin to be almost beautiful. I have a strong love for the masculine buff guys, but I do have a very strong love for the softer more feminine guys as well. Kevin is adorable, and handsome, and oh-so-pretty, all at once.

Score: 8

Super Junior

First Candidate: Leeteuk




I’m torn about Leeteuk… Sometimes I find him to be a great mix of handsome and sexy, but a lot of the time I think he looks somehow weird. I’ve never been very attracted to him though, even at his great times.

Score: 6.5

Second Candidate: Yesung




I have some troubles with Yesung. I’ve always somehow felt like the reason why I’m not super attracted to him is because of the styling. But since I’ve been saying that for years now, I’m really starting to doubt if that’s true. I have no idea what the styling should be, and since he has tried some different things over the years, and none of them have worked for me, I’m not sure what to do with this guy.

Score: 7

Third Candidate: Kibum




It feels weird including Kibum since he hasn’t been an active member for years, but since he is still an official member, I can’t not include him. Something about the combination of his eyes and nose has always seemed a bit off to me. I can’t really pinpoint it, but I’ve never really found him attractive.

Score: 6

Fourth Candidate: Heechul




I adore the way Heechul looks. He has my absolute favorite kind of androgyny, and with long hair he just blows me away. Please please please grow your hair out again!

Score: 8

Fifth Candidate: Kangin




There is nothing immature or feminine in any way about the way Kangin looks, and I’ve always considered him as one of the purest manly kpop stars. But I’ve also always found him to be quite plain, he really looks like just any guy.

Score: 6.5

Sixth Candidate: Shindong




This is going to sound mean, but Shindong is just a little too big for my taste. He’s not huge, in any way, but everyone’s entitled to their personal preferences when it comes to attraction, and I just happen to prefer my men a little slimmer.

Score: 6

Seventh Candidate: Sungmin




Sungmin has always been an adorable guy, and as I’m now seeing him mature and look more and more manly, I’m getting more and more attracted to him. I’m not really into the aegyo-cute guys, so I much prefer the Sungmin I’m seeing nowadays.

Score: 7.5

Eighth Candidate: Eunhyuk




Eunhyuk most certainly has a very unique look, which I like, but it also makes it so that he really needs the right kind of hair to make it work. He doesn’t have a face that can pull off anything, so when he’s styled incorrectly it just doesn’t work. He has a kick-ass body though.

Score: 7

Ninth Candidate: Donghae




Donghae is one of those guys that’s so super good-looking that it’s distracting. He has a very classic manly face, and an almost prince charming-esque look.

Score: 8.5

Tenth Candidate: Siwon




I’m sorry, but I just can’t handle Siwon. This guy is the most annoyingly distracting dude on the face of this Earth. I don’t want to find him as attractive as I do, but when he looks at “me” with that sex-face, I just can’t handle it.

Score: 9

Eleventh Candidate: Ryeowook




This guy is the cutest, most adorably petite little thing out there. He has a very good and clean-cut handsome face, and I approve. He’s a little too cutesy for me though.

Score: 7

Final Candidate: Kyuhyun




I do think Kyuhyun’s look is a little off, but in the best kind of way. He’s tall and thin, and with his long limbs, he looks like he’s an alien who’s escaped from the same planet that Sungyeol’s from.

Score: 7.5


First Candidate: Aron




Aron has a look that’s a mix of cute, handsome, and approachable. I like it, and while I’ve never felt much attraction towards him, I do think he’s cute.

Score: 7

Second Candidate: JR




JR is always an attractive guy, but when he gets the right kind of hairdo he lights up in a way that’s really quite beautiful. He’s a very handsome guy, with a face that’s very manly.

Score: 8

Third Candidate: Baekho




Baekho has a very masculine look (and killer arms) but I’ve never felt an overwhelming attraction towards him.

Score: 7

Fourth Candidate: Minhyun




Minhyun has a quite feminine, and very cool look. His eyes and overall features makes him have an almost feline look, which I like a lot. He’s one of those people that you just kind of want to keep watching.

Score: 7.5

Final Candidate: Ren




I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again; I’m a big fan of people who push the boundaries. And Ren really does. He does gender-bender better than anyone else in the kpop sphere. I find Ren to be a beautiful and radiant creature, that’s the only way I can describe him.

Score: 8

Average Scores

U-KISS: 7.17

Super Junior: 7.21

NU’EST: 7.50

Once again, this was close! In the end though, NU’EST takes the team win, with Super Junior as second, and U-KISS as third.

Individual Winner

Representing U-KISS:



Representing Super Junior:



Representing NU’EST:



(JR was picked over Ren because he’s higher on my bias list)

And the winner is…


This was yet another obvious win, but it still has to be announced. Out of JR and Kevin, I would say that I’m more attracted to JR, so that makes him the runner-up.

Just as last time, the individual winner is not from the winning group. I’m liking that pattern, it makes it more intriguing. If you could call any of this intriguing, that is.

Here are the polls!

  1. Why I am NOT surprised that Siwon is the winner? lol he is a REAL prince, not just on looks, but his gestures, sincere attitude and the way he speaks filled the perfect illustration of a prince. he’s also charming, sophisticated, do I need to go on? lol
    Ok since you ranked them based on looks, I’ll share my thoughts.

    Donghae, my ultimate ULTIMATE kpop bias, is the most beautiful man on this earth, CAN’T BELIEVE YOU GIVE HIM A 7. haha i’m kidding, but seriously, he’s so beautiful I can’t even….
    He has the classic flower boy face, puppy eyes, killer smile, you should find a picture of him smiling, it will KILL you.

    Moving on to Wook, my second favorite SJ member. Yes he’s absolutely adorable, and yes he’s very short, especially in real life. but he’s very well proportioned. He’s cute on the outside but evil on the inside LMAO joking.

    Hyuk also has a very well proportioned body, he’s a dancer so he definitely watches his weight. and he doesn’t gain weight no matter how much he eats, arghh, hate him.
    I agree that if he doesn’t style correctly, the look won’t work for him. I like the blonde in Mr Simple, and several other colors.

    I wanna talk about Sungmin too, he’s not my bias but I have seen him up close so I’ll say something about his looks. he has the most flawless skin I’ve seen in a guy, milky white, very smooth surface, either he’s born with it or he knows how to take care of his skin. He has broad shoulders, almost too big for his head, but not.
    He’s not very tall, and he has really nice lips lol

    I don’t know anyone from Nu’est, as for U-Kiss, Kevin has a kiddy face, Kiseop looks mixed, AJ looks like one of my ex-boyfriends, and the rest, I have no comment lol.

    Lastly, I want to say I appreciate you still take the time to write despite the tragedy in South Korea. I read your other post as well, let’s keep on praying to find those lost passengers.
    Have a good weekend!

    1. Siwon is the biggest dirty pleasure that I have… I just kind of find him way too handsome to handle lol

      I didn’t give Donghae a 7 though :O I gave him a 8.5… I find Donghae to be a little too distracting right now, and I can’t really handle how handsome I’m finding him…

      The rest I’ll just kind of agree with lol xD it always makes me feel bad when you write super long comments but I don’t have much to respond with 😦

      I was torn about whether or not I should write, since I’ve been seeing other bloggers cancel their posts out of respect, but I decided to go ahead with this anyway. I don’t pray, but if I did, I definitely would right now. Instead I’m just keeping a close watch on news sites, and kind of maybe a little crying my eyes out for these people. It also makes me very sad that pretty much no one here knows it even happened… But news site basically just report things that happen to Europeans, Americans etc anyway here, so I guess it’s not too surprising. It just pisses me off though.

      Have a good Easter! If you celebrate that… If you don’t, then just have a good weekend anyway!

      1. OMG I read the score wrong, sorry about that. Donghae is a perfect 10 for me but 8.5 is pretty high haha.
        Siwon is definitely a guilty pleasure, he’s just so handsome to look at. I always call him a prince because he just exhumes the vibe of one.
        dont feel bad lol. I’m just really biased toward some of these idols, haha.

        It’s really heart breaking watching the news, as the death number goes up but rescue numbers remain the same, my heart just sank. Hope they get as many ppl as they can to help, we won’t give up hoping.

        Thank you! Have a great Easter too! We don’t celebrate it but a day off is definitely a treat! LOL

      2. Haha, yeah I haven’t given anyone anything higher than a 9 so far, so an 8.5 is pretty high indeed.

        Yeah, he sure is! And he said he’s willing to date a girl who’s up to 12 years younger, so here’s to hoping! Lol

        Yes, it’s incredibly heart wrenching… But we have to keep hoping.

        We are as far from religious as can be, so we just celebrate it with good food and candy lol
