They are members of BTS, a South Korean boy band, which has been garnering international fans and buzz since their debut in 2013. Their musical messages range from young romance angst to enjoying life in the moment to criticism of societal norms set for millennials. They've even broken record by being the first Asian act to rightly earn a Billboard Music Award for top social artist. Although their initial concept was more the hip hop, bad boy image, they've deviated from that several times into more aesthetic or sultry styles. It seems, to me, that their fanbase, ARMYs, is more attracted to their cute image, with the whole doe eyes, member pairings, and colorful, fluffy hairstyles kind of thing.
Needless to say, I believe they are talented musically but would throw up 🤢 just thinking about kissing them. I can not find any one of these boys even the faintest bit physically attractive. I can understand the mentality of a teen girl who might say, awww, they're so friggin squishy, holding each other's hands, like husband and wife. Same makeup and everything. Surely, they can't all have the same freaking eyebrows naturally.
Makeup is to enhance an individual's own features, which is why there's millions of cosmetic brands. It's not used to create an exact replica of the person right next to you. And what's with the whole opening your mouth 👄 like that while taking pics?
To me, they were all unsatisfied with their appearances before becoming famous. Heck, the skinniest member of the group even stated that he needed to diet even though he is already underweight.
I'm using BTS as an example because they are currently the most talked about K-pop group internationally. However, this applies to ALL the K-pop groups that feel the need to act cute in photos to please their fandoms. At least, most people can tell One Direction apart due to their eyebrows (thick or thin), and hair, unlike these groups. I only like BTS for their music, that's it.

They're really talented dancers
... But the amount of makeup they wear puts drag queens to shame, and that's with all Kpop groups.
I do think you have the misconception that they choose their style. You have to remember that everything they do is decided by the company that trained them for years and then created them. They don't get a say in what they wear, what they sing, and even what they look like. A lot of the singers are forced to lose weight even if they're already slim and even sometimes have to get plastic surgery.3
