Kim Jaejoong, #1. “Beautiful Man” is Decided in 0.1 Second
Kim Jaejoong is #1. Going beyond Korea, he becomes the beautiful man of Asia!
Truly this is news that delights—the news of JYJ’s Kim Jaejoong as the Beautiful Male Star of Asia. Not only that, as it was not by Korean fans but rather towards the netizens of China, the meaning of this result is even more extraordinary.
In the present society in which looks is a competitive asset, what factors were at work to make Kim Jaejoong #1? In fact, this generation picks as conditions of a beautiful man the sharply-raised nose, suitably pouty lips, small face, attractive eyes, black and defined eyebrows and such. When these conditions are substantially fulfilled, we call him a beautiful man.
Whether one is beautiful or not is decided in 0.1 second?
Commonly, we look at celebrities and say “how is he so good-looking like that” or “really that is an attractive face.” Just like this, our evaluation as to whether one is beautiful does not take very long. According to experts, for a person to differentiate the beautiful from the rest takes only 0.1 second. This is due to the spindle of the brain which is in charge of only the recognition of faces. The spindle, unlike for recognition of objects, when recognizing faces recognizes the relationships between the eyes, nose, and the mouth at once. Because of this it recognizes beauty in the short duration of time of 0.1 second. This can be interpreted to mean that our brain already knows the conditions of beauty as a reflex.
If so, then what is the reason behind why the Chinese netizens have come to see Kim Jaejoong as the #1 Beautiful Man? The news of Kim Jaejoong’s #1 was introduced through the Japanese newspaper “Record China” on the 17th. This medium revealed that as a result of a research of about four months in 7 major portal sites such as sina.com that operates a Chinese-version Twitter and mini blogs, JYJ’s Kim Jaejoong took #1. The survey took place under the heading of “Year 2011 Top 10 of Asia’s Beautiful Male Stars.” Following Kim Jaejoong’s #1 was the popular actor of Taiwan, Ming Dao. 3rd was China’s young actor Xiao Von Von. 4th Jerry Yan of the Taiwanese version of “Boys Over Flowers.” 5th was taken by the Korean actor Jang Geun Suk from You are Beautiful. Aside from this, Song Seunghun and Park Yoochun and such were included so that one could feel again the popularity of the Korean Wave stars.
The Reason that the Netizens of China Picked Him to be #1?
Just as the Chinese netizens picked Kim Jaejoong to be #1 for Beautiul Man, what kind of a face is thought to be beautiful in only 0.1 second? Surgeons who specialize in plastic surgery say that a condition of a beautiful person is first a face that is not too triangular or too angled but rather one that is the closest to the mean and maintaining the neutrality in the most precise way, the facial structure that makes a person who sees it feel a sense of stability. Further, the right and left sides of the face must be precisely symmetrical so that the balance of the facial features is well-met. The distance between the eye, nose, and mouth must have the golden proportions of 1.618:1. Furthermore, the biggest factor in creating an image is the clear and straightly-carved nose which gives off a sophisticated impression and makes the face look small and so it is said to be one of the factors that a beautiful person must have.
What is the Attractiveness of the Most Beautiful Man of Asia?
Kim Jaejoong, who has taken the place as the most beautiful man out of the whole of Asia, is evaluated to have verbatim the conditions of a beautiful man as proffered by surgeons who specialize in plastic surgery. Kim Jaejoong has an exterior that is like a sculpture and has eyes that are filled with moodiness—he is the structure of a beautiful man that is enough to capture the female heart. However, the reason that we must focus on Kim Jaejoong is somewhere else. Behind the perfect exterior, we need to see his professional spirit—he started out as a singer and has become an actor, and went further and is carrying a substantial load of the Korean Wave by advancing to the Japanese stage with his superb skills in Japanese. Kim Jaejoong has gone through 2 years of life as a trainee and debuted on December of 2003 as TVXQ. With his great skills equipped with explosive singing ability and powerful dance, he is a skills-driven singer who has participated in a variety of drama OSTs other than the regular albums of TVXQ. Furthermore, Kim Jaejoong has dignifiedly taken on the lead role in the Korea and Japan’s collaborative drama Postman From Heaven in 2009 and expanded his activities into Japan and acted as the pioneer of the Korean wave. Other than this, Kim Jaejoong, through a variety of drama activities, have successfully walked both roads– of an artist and an actor. Currently he is showing impassioned acting as Cha Muwon in the SBS Wed-Thursday drama Protect the Boss.
Even before the news of Kim Jaejoong as #1, would not the reason that he is truly beautiful be that underneath his sculpture-like face, he has the fighting spirit and tenacity which work ceaselessly towards change?
