EXO-Ls were ecstatic in May 2018 when VOGUE magazine revealed that EXO’s Baekhyun would be teaming up with Privé Alliance to launch his very own brand: Privé by BBH.

Apink’s Namjoo launched her very own fashion and lifestyle brand, Sugar Please, in February 2019. Her comfortable yet cute collection of hoodies, dresses, two-piece looks, and more quickly became a hit with international fans and fellow idol friends. Plus, Namjoo also sold jewelry, art, and even food under the brand.
Sugar Please later collaborated with cosmetics brand Pure Theory, with Namjoo serving as the creative director for a makeup series embodying her experience with personal styling. The Sugar Please website is currently closed to customers, but fans are hoping it will open again soon one day.
G-Dragon has always been known for his creativity and artistic nature, so it came as little surprise when he opened an art exhibition in 2015—”Peaceminusone: Beyond the Stage”—with over 200 works of art. In October the following year, the name popped up again in the form of G-Dragon’s very own fashion brand, Peaceminusone.
Peaceminusone has since opened physical stores and pop-ups around the world, from Seoul to London to Miami. Today, the high-end brand includes everything from $15 USD stickers to stunning padded jackets worth almost $500 USD.
5. Donghae (Super Junior)
Along with his brother Donghwa, Super Junior’s Donghae revealed his fashion brand TEMPUS STUDIO in August 2018. The family business defines itself as a streetwear brand, showing off a bright and trendy style.
One thing TEMPUS does amazingly is graphic t-shirts, with an extensive collection of unique printed tees retailing for around $40 USD. Other popular items available right now include sportswear and co-ord loungewear sets.
Here Are The Top 6 Female Stars With “Perfect Faces” As Chosen By Plastic Surgeons
“Best face” lists have been around for as long as anyone can remember and these lists vary from time to time. On a previous episode of TMI News, plastic surgeons gathered to vote on the 6 female stars they believe have “perfect faces” so let’s take a look!
1. Yoona (Girls’ Generation)
Starting off our list is the original girl group visual, Yoona. Even before her debut, the Girls’ Generation member turned heads with her perfect visuals and proportions. She became one of South Korea’s top beauties with her big doe eyes and her perfect face shape. While she has been in the industry for 14 years, her visuals are still talked about to this day and it doesn’t look like it’ll stop anytime soon.
2. Jennie (BLACKPINK)
Next up on this list is BLACKPINK member, Jennie. While Jennie exudes a much different beauty from Yoona, the BLACKPINK member has also become one of the nation’s hottest “it” girls because of her look. Her cat-like eyes and adorable cheeks became the very look that many women came to envy. Plastic surgeons throughout the nation admitted that women all across the country often bring a photo of Jennie as their plastic surgery inspiration.
3. Irene (Red Velvet)
Coming in hot at number 3 is none other than Irene from Red Velvet. This list would not be complete without this beautiful girl group member. Irene made headlines way before her debut for her massive eyes and perfect facial proportions. Her natural beauty shocked the nation well before her Red Velvet fame, as numerous pre-debut photos have made their rounds online. Similarly to Jennie, Irene is also another popular inspiration for many women’s plastic surgery endeavors.
Suzy is a no-brainer when it comes to “perfect faces.” Following Yoona’s footsteps, Suzy became one of South Korea’s most beautiful women not too long after her debut. From the get go, the former girl group member garnered heavy attention for her innocent, but stunning look. Her girl-next-door vibes were so strong, that she earned the title of “Nation’s First Love” almost instantaneously. Suzy’s visuals are acknowledged not just by plastic surgeons, but by her fellow celebrity peers who frequently rave about her looks.
5. Oh Yeon Seo
Actress Oh Yeon Seo makes it onto this highly coveted list at number 5. While her K-Pop idol days happened decades ago, her perfectly symmetrical face is what got her a spot onto this list. Plastic surgeons acknowledged that the actress’s facial symmetry, as well as her perfectly spaced-out facial features, make her one of South Korea’s “perfect faces.” It wasn’t too hard for the actress to rise in popularity due to the stunning visuals she possesses, making it almost impossible to ignore her on the screen.
6. Jang Wonyoung
Last, but most definitely not least is the maknae of this list, Jang Wonyoung. This now former member of IZ*ONE frequently makes headlines not just because of her perfect visuals, but also for her perfect body proportions. While her perfection is shocking all on its own, the girl group member is only 16-years-old, making her visuals even more unbelievable. Jang Wonyoung made a huge splash onto the K-Pop scene after appearing on Produce 48. Out of the almost 100 female trainees, Jang Wonyoung was voted #1 thanks to her visuals so it’s no surprise that this young idol made this list.
