What about putting the name (and group name) under each photo? And also which k-dramas each one has been in? This would be helpful for people who don’t know them all yet.
You’re still on time to edit your posts - after a while you cannot anymore.

Cha Eun Woo from Astro

I realized that I’ve only been posting male idols (except for IU), but that’s because the actresses that have made a memorable impression on me and the actresses I like aren’t part of a Kpop group. The actors/idols I’m posting are ones that I can remember; they are not necessarily my ‘favorite’ actors.

Dramas he’s acted in:

Byun Baek Hyun from EXO

I started rewatching Scarlet Heart (maybe not the best thing for my emotional health), and found out that Prince Eun is actually from EXO.
