Hong Seok-cheon explained, “First of all, you have a manly face. And especially from a foreign perspective, you have these really sexy Asian eyes. The cheek and the chin, these lines themselves are very strong. And your smile. If you don’t have this, you might be a little bit evil. When you laugh, it melts men, women, gays, everybody”.
