What Is Typical Visual Taste of 5 Biggest Companies In K-Pop At The Moment?

What Is Typical Visual Taste of 5 Biggest Companies In K-Pop At The Moment?

A lot of K-Pop agencies have a certain look that they like, which is why some idols in the same agency have a striking resemblance to each other.

For instance, back in the day, the common belief was that SM Entertainment selected idols with double-eyelids who looked as if they would have been in a fairy-tale. Some of the idols who exemplify this type of visual would be TaeYong (NCT), ChanYeol (EXO), SiWon (Super Junior), and etc. YG would be more inclined to select idols without double-eyelids and who had a lot of hip-hop swagger such as G-Dragon(BIGBANG), Bobby (iKON), and etc.

Of course, it's not a set rule for these agencies, but fans have always noticed that each K-Pop entertainment agency had a type of visual that they were more drawn to.

You can check them out below!

JYP Entertainment

Former Wonder Girls member Ahn SoHee and ITZY's YeJi are the classic visuals that most people are familiar with when it comes to JYP style visuals. It's not easy to pinpoint the exact elements, but starting with obvious ones such as their facial features, there's a certain girl crush vibe to them, and in this case, mono-lids. Hyunjin of Stray Kids is also a perfect example.

Ahn So Hee

SM Entertainment

Ah yes, the classic SM Entertainment male visuals. Jaejoong and NCT TaeYong not only seem like different versions of each other suited for different time periods, but it really does show that SM Entertainment likes to select unreal comic-like idols. Many South Koreans consider this type of visual as one of a prince inside a fairy-tale. Both of them have such unrealistic visuals like 3D characters that whether you meet them for the first time or many times after, they still stunt everyone's eyes with their gorgeously perfect face.


YG Entertainment

YG artists are famous for their swag, unique figures and such luxury vibe that make them stand out among others. Sometimes their styles are so "YG-like" that people feel misunderstanding, turns out they are just YG artists. Like this sunbae-hobae duo, you can already see so much swagger dripping from both G-Dragon and Mino. In fact, you can see so much of each other in the two of them. For female idols, who could perform the YG vibe better than former 2NE1 CL, BLACKPINK Jennie and Lisa?


Big Hit Entertainment

While it's only been in recent times that Big Hit Entertainment has become an agency that has risen in the K-Pop scene, fans can already notice that they have perhaps the trendiest and freshest visual direction. Their visuals are examples of the perfect combination between purity, unreality and fairy look, just like BTS V and TXT Yeonjun.


Cube Entertainment

Girls who look amazing bad girls in red lipstick? Yes, that's a definite requirement for Cube Entertainment. Powerful, confident and strong women are the typical styles of Cube's artists' styles. They are not only loved by fanboys but also lots of fangirls are their hard-core fans, especially HyunA and (G)I-DLE Soojin. Although HyunA is now not an idol under Cube but her visual will always stay iconic.
