On Monday, Dec. 14, Grazia France released their list of "Sexiest Men of 2020". This list only has twelve people, making it rather exclusive as only specially selected celebrities make the top rankings. Among the twelve men who earned Grazia France's praise, BTS member Jungkook managed to snag a spot.
Jungkook was ranked at number 7. Grazia France mentions that Jungkook is a member of the most popular South Korean group on the planet, and mentioned that he was able to set himself apart from his comrades by being named as People Magazine's "Sexiest International Man", making him the first celebrity to win the honorary title.
Back in Nov., People Magazine announced the results of their "Sexiest Men Alive" poll, which was launched in October. The poll had numerous categories, including "Sexiest International Man", where Jungkook was nominated alongside Dan Levy, Matthew Rhys, Paul Mescal, and Keith Urban.
When they announced the winners of each category, fans were happy to hear that Jungkook had won his category, thus earning the title of "2020 Sexiest International Man". This is the first time People Magazine has unveiled the category, making Jungkook People Magazine's first-ever "Sexiest International Man".
This is Jungkook's first time to be included in Grazia France and People Magazine's "Sexiest" lists. However, Jungkook has been nominated and included in numerous other rankings. Back in 2018, Flare Magazine, a Canada-based online fashion magazine, previously included Jungkook in their "2018 Sexiest Men Alive" list, alongside fellow BTS member Jungkook.
That same year, Jungkook was also nominated in Starmometer's "100 Sexiest Men in The World". Fans were able to vote for their favorite celebrity on Facebook, Twitter, and Sarmometer's official website. After the voting time, it was announced that Jungkook had won the top spot, beating out 99 other male celebrities.
Jungkook was once again nominated for Starmometer's "100 Sexiest Men in the World" in 2019. Though he did not win the top spot at the time, he was able to reach the top 40 alongside fellow BTS members Jin, V, and Jimin. At the time, numerous K-pop stars made the list, such as EXO members Sehun and Kai, Lee Seunggi, and GOT7 member Jackson. Korean actors were also included on the said list, such as Ji Chang Wook, Park Bo Gum, and Nam Joo Hyuk.
BTS as a whole was previously nominated for the "Sexiest Chart Topper" category in People's Magazine "Sexiest Man Alive" polls. The group was up against Harry Styles, Roddy Ricch, Bad Bunny, and The Weeknd. Though they received numerous votes, BTS did not snag the award. The "Sexiest Chart Topper" title was ultimately given to the former One Direction member, Harry Styles.
In the aforementioned list, Jungkook took third place. Jin ranked in fourth place, Jimin in second place, and V in the first place.
