Khottie of the Week: A Case For Black and White

Posted by Stephanie on April 10, 2016

Khottie of the Week

I have an idea. A hypothosis even. Here it is. I believe that I can prove that Khotties look even better in black and white. Would you care to take a look at my evidence?

Let’s kick it off with the photo which started this thought process. Woo Bin man, Woo. Bin.

Exhibit #2 Jay Park. Nice sleeve Mr.

Exhibit 3: This week’s Musical Monday, Yong Hwa. Can’t help but notice they photoshopped out the big earring holes from his lobes.

Exhibit 4: T.O.P, I’m not sure what he’s doing here, but in black and white it looks fun and alluring. top 2

Exhibit 5: T.O.P’s partner in crime thinks his profile is most especially striking in the black and white tones.

Exhibit 6: Here’s Junho. Not sure who he is or where he’s from but he’s in black and white, looks slightly age appropriate, and is in black and white.


Exhibit 7: Three Words. So. Ji. Sub

Exhibit 8: Song Joong Ki. I’ve seen this shot in color and I’ve seen this shot in black and white. Black and white wins.

Exhibit 9: Taemin is heightened to art film in black and white.

Exhibit 10: Gong Yoo. Dark and shadows, smoke and mirrors.

Exhibit 11: Lee Dong Wook. Angsty shower scenes just look angstier without color. lee dong wook

Exhibit 12: Sung Hoon, the shadows really invite you in for a closer look, don’t they?

Have I proven my point yet? No? Yeah, you’re right, better be safe than sorry.

Exhibit 13: JB & Jackson!

Now, these guys are only here as examples. They are not, I repeat NOT Khotties. They are handsome young men who are not quite old enough to be considered as a khottie. jb jackson

Exhibit 14: Cho Si Won. Look at that face! That’s a face made for black and white. siwon

And finally, my last exhibit, what I believe will, without further doubt, prove my case, Won Bin.

    One comment and one question. Junho is from 2PM. He’s quite a talented singer. The question is what’s the age cut off for Khottie? Cause Jackson and JB are 22, I’m just sayin’.

      Which by the way is the same age as Taemin. Although to be fair Taemin will be 23 in 3 months.

        Aimee, how is it that Taemin seems older than Jackson? They so don’t seem the same age!

        • Reply Aimee April 11, 2016 at 10:53 am

          Molly, probably because Taemin debuted so much younger than Jackson. Also Jackson has that silly personality.

        • Reply Stephanie April 12, 2016 at 1:12 pm

          See? I thought Taemin was at least 26!

      Thanks for the info! Khottie age cut-off is 24. Othewise people give me side-eyes for being a big perv

        I was not calling you pervy 🙂 . I had really forgotten the cut-off. I have to confess the reason I know Taemins age is because he’s a few weeks younger than my son. That’s why I have such a complex about them when they are so young.

        • Reply Stephanie April 22, 2016 at 7:11 pm

          LAUGH. No, I didn’t think you were calling me a perv, but I have been called a perv in the past, for someone who was 24! (Taeyang back on the old site) So I made the cutoff.

    Well, black and white really brings out their beauty, doesn’t it? Thanks for all this lovely eye candy. 🙂 And I love how you went out on a limb and posted a pic of Jackson and JB. LOL

    No Min Woo posts a lot of black and white photos on his Instagram account. And he generally looks happy there, which is a good look for him.

      Why do I not follow him? That’s just wrong.
