Khottie of the Week: Chae Hyungwon

Khottie of the Week

Birthdays not only remind you that you are a year older (and hopefully a year wiser) but more importantly that it’s the people you have in your life that matter most. This year I was reminded over and over how many amazing people there are in my life and how lucky I am to call them friend and family. So as a thank you to all those amazing people, I put together this small present.

You might be wondering why I would choose someone like Hyungwon as a present. And I would tell you that there are so many reasons as to why I would make that choice. He’s like the perfect present, somewhat vague and non-descript on the surface but the more you unwrap the more in love you fall. Monsta X was a group that I was always somewhat aware of but because I was obsessed with BigBang and BTS for quite a long time I never paid much attention (except to Hero, I could watch that video over and over and over). From the beginning, Shownu was the only MX member I could identify quickly and as a result, he defaulted to bais. I was happy with that status until a few months ago when I discovered the awesome that is the sexy beanpole.

Meet Hyungwon.

He’s beautiful, but to me always seemed lacking emotion (or anything) in his expressions. SaraG says it comes from his days of modeling.

I admired him as a member of Monsta X.

But then I met H.ONE. It’s his DJing stage name and with it comes a whole different persona (or maybe I just was ready to see what he’d been trying to show all along). This is not the best video but it’s a great glimpse of H.ONE in action.

After meeting H.ONE I was intrigued and desperate to know more.

Turns out he is a goofy idiot.


Who has the most amazing lips.

And is the tallest member of Monsta X. 

Totally a sexy beanpole. 

Who happens to be absolutely amazing with children (DO NOT watch this show if you don’t want to fall in love). 

Did I say sexy beanpole? (HIs comment after this show was “I didn’t mean to show my underwear.”)

Who has a beautiful smile and is full of expressive emotions. 

Part of me wants to keep him all to myself but that wouldn’t be fair to all the amazing people in my life. 

Or to him, because everyone should know. 

Thank you for an awesome birthday!!!

    It’s a shame that wordpress won’t let you add images to the comments, otherwise I could spam this post with the hundreds of Hyungwon meme gifs. Instead I will just have to encourage everyone to search “CHAE HYUNGWON THE LIVING MEME” on youtube.
