TC Candler and The Independent Critics unveiled its annual list of Most Beautiful Faces. For the year 2016, many K-Pop idols joined the list in both the male and female category. 

After School member Nana ranks highest among all the K-Pop stars at number 3. She has been listed as a hall of famer, with 2016 being her fourth year on the list. According to Soompi, Nana topped the 2014 list and defended her title in 2015. When she first appeared on the list in 2013, she surprised many by placing second even though she was only a "new entry" at the time.

Red Velvet's Irene is in seventh place, followed by TWICE's Tzuyu in eighth. Irene and Tzuyu join Nana as the only three K-Pop artists in the top 10. They rank higher than famous international personalities such as Oscar winner Alicia Vikander, "Beauty and the Beast" star Emma Watson and "Game of Thrones" actress Emilia Clarke.

According to Koreaboo, many other K-Pop stars are listed as some of the most beautiful faces of 2016, including Taeyeon (19), Suzy (62), Seulgi (29), Jessica (49), Irene (7), Jennie (22), Yura (35) and Go Ara (45).

Male K-pop artists also dominate the Most Beautiful Faces 2016 list under the male category. Leading the pack is Taeyang at number 2. The BIGBANG makes a big jump in his ranking from last year's 24th place. He even overtakes fan-favorite Siwon, who ranks 12th.

Also listed in the male category are Kris Wu (28), WINNER's Minho (36), Kai (44), Taecyeon (52), BTS' Jungkook (55), BTS' V (60), Lee Min Ho (65), Luhan (69), Jaejoong (73), and Donghae (99).

The Most Beautiful Faces 2016 list is the 27th Annual Independent Critics List released by TC Candler. The list is a result of millions of suggestions submitted by the public and carefully put together by TC Candler to create a list that is "representative of the modern ideal worldwide beauty."
