Khottie of the Week: Shownu and His Right to Bare Arms

Posted by KpopontheDL on July 2, 2016

Khottie of the Week/ Music


Hello everyone!  This week we are back to Kpop idols with Shownu!  Shownu is the leader, vocal, and main dancer for the group Monsta X.

People like to talk about Shownu’s arms.  It’s easy to see why.  The coordi-unnie never puts sleeves on the poor guy.


And recently, she’s been leaving the backs off his shirts too!  He might catch a cold, but its hard to argue with her good taste.


If you’ve not seen this performance with Shownu in this shirt, you’ve been failing at the internet.  Just saying…


And if you’re into backs like I am, you will want to watch all the permutations of costumes for this promotion.  Trust me.

I felt obligated to add this picture with him in a sweater, looking adorable, to make up for all the sleeveless ones in the rest of the post.  

Nice arms and buff backs aside, the best thing about Shownu is that he is such a sweet, chill guy.  The fanbase calls him the Papa Bear, because he totally is.

Everybody wants to cuddle him, even the group members.

Prior to his debut with Monsta X, Shownu can be spotted as Lee Hyori’s backup dancer during her Bad Girls promotions.


He is also a lovely singer.  During auditions on their reality show, No.Mercy, K.Will couldn’t help being just a little impressed.


When you’re naturally sweet looking, it can be difficult to look tough, but he occasionally manages it.



However, I think suits are a better look on him.


And of course, sleeveless.


Until next week!  Enjoy the weekend!

    Those shots of him in his backup dancer days were very,very nice. So – I’m hoping he’s at least 21.

      He’s 24!

        Yep, to the consternation of many *ahem*KpopontheDL*ahem* Khottie has a strict age minimum of 24. Why 24? Shrug. Seems less pervy that way.

      Out of curiosity, I double checked. He was 21 when he was Lee Hyori’s backup dancer.

    As someone who’s just wasting time jumping from one khottie post to another, Lee Hyori has some admirable arms as well!

      I need to cover a few more ladies! I’ll put her on the list.
