In any KPOP group, there is usually one specific member who is denoted as the 'visual' of the group. As the name suggests, the 'visual' is the physically most attractive member with the best looks. To list a few examples, there is T.O.P. of Big Bang, Sandara of 2NE1 (above), Minho of SHINee, Suzy of Miss A, L of Infinite and the list goes on. These beautiful individuals are usually the ones who represent the group in commercial films etc. However, as I was scrolling through my newsfeed on facebook on one typical night, I chanced upon this rather interesting post:
Though it is ordinary for us typical kpoppers to pinpoint to specific individuals in a group as members, I am kind of stunned that it never occurred to me of the possibility that all members in a group be visuals. Upon looking at this list, I definitely do very much agree that the members of KPOP groups which are numbered 1, 2 and 4 on the list above are all visuals. Let's take a look at these groups one by one.

I'm admittedly not a big fan of EXO, yet it really doesn't require a genius to know of the brilliant visual assets that all 12 members in both EXO-K and EXO-M have. And honestly, all 12 of them are really cute, please excuse me and my tiny area for confessions. Perhaps because they promote in Korea, EXO-K seems to have more recognized endorsements than EXO-M (correct me if I'm wrong). Though having just debuted last year, EXO-K has already landed many endorsement deals with many well-known brands, including The Face Shop, Samsung Ativ Smart PC and IVY Club, not to mention that all 6 of them look really cute and adorable in their promotional pictures. Since the English language is currently really limiting me in expressing their cute yet somewhat pretty looks, here's some of their CF pictures.

And here's treating you to EXO-M eyecandy too.

Yoona is the designated visual of the group. And though it was really obvious that she was the visual in the past, the rest of the GG members are increasingly stepping up as the group matures. Now, I think that it is already an accepted unspoken fact that all 9 members of Girls' Generation are really beautiful, need I say more. Pulling of practically any concept with their looks since 2007 and reigning as CF queen as a group for the year 2012, that's Girls Generation for you. Apart from the above group picture, here's some promotional pictures for all 9 members. Warning: Major eyecandy ahead, please do not faint.

In celebration of Taetiseo's comeback this year and the fact that 2 writers from kpopranter are fans of Taeyeon and Tiffany respectively, here's a final picture of the trio!

Research tells me that Bora is the visual of Sistar. But honestly, without this prior knowledge, it would have been relatively tough for me to pick out the supposed visual of the group because all 4 of them are capable of being the visual, not to mention that they all have really nice bodies. They have recently landed an endorsement deal with Ocean World and who knows how many fanboys out there are having trouble keeping their cool! Check it out below!
