It’s that time of the year when TC Candler drops their Top 100 Most Handsome Faces of 2023 and Keung To from Hong Kong boy group Mirror has done it again, landing a spot on the coveted list for the second year in a row. This time, he’s climbed two spots from number 5 last year to make it into the top 3 just behind Hollywood stars Timothee Chalamet and Henry Cavill in first and second.
The 24-year-old Cantopop idol has outmanoeuvred seasoned contenders like BTS’ V and stars from different parts of the world be it K-ent, C-ent, etc. Keung To has literally become one of the top stars in Hong Kong after he won big in the ViuTV reality talent show Good Night Show – King Maker. Out of his 12 fellow Mirror members, AK Anson Kong as well as A Business Proposal stars Anson Lo and Edan Lui also made the list.
While not everyone may be familiar with him with some even questioning how he managed to rank so high as the topic trended on Weibo hot search, it’s certainly a feat for the stars from Hong Kong. Other K-Pop stars in the top 10 include Japanese idol NI-KI from ENHYPEN in 4th, Bang Chan from Stray Kids in 7th and BTS V in 10th. Meanwhile, Zhang Zhehan who has focused on his music career outside of China after he was cancelled in his home country comes in strong in 7th. Chinese stars like Xiao Zhan and Wang Yibo rank in 30th and 95th respectively.
