Rise of the Beastly Boys!!!!

For Asian female singers it’s usually style and dress appearance what separates them.The common or typical desirable Asian female star is slim(petite) with long hair and light skin.Although many argue against this image because defining a “slim body” type for a woman can be quite controversial.Unlike Americans the ideal Asian women posses the “S” shape.Similar to west for admiring women who posses the “hour-glass figure”.Either way both are similar and not every women naturally posses these type of bodies.

For men in Asian media their torso can make or break the difference.Most Asian actors and singers are usually slim to average built.Makes you wonder if there is such thing as larger people in Asia.Although a large sum of the population falls into the”‘average” category some do go above.I notice a sudden increase mostly in K-pop to have much more large men.In height and  weight size to get more attention.Labels like YG, SM,and JYP have specialize trainers and gyms to support the efforts of having better looking pop stars.Hiring special diet nutritionists to make sure their K-pop stars don’t tip the scales the wrong way. In Japan the attitude about health is important but size isn’t an issue.While groups like 2am,2pm,DBSK(some members) bulk up a little  couldn’t help but notice the different body types that are emerging.

This new reasoning for bulking up has some fans turn off and a little turn on.Is there a need for Asian male pop stars to have a 6 or 8 pack abs?Remind you these people are just performers not all-star athletes preparing for the Olympics.The labels don’t seem to care and making sure not only musical do these men make massive waves but physically have the audience craving for their chocolate abs.

Beastly Boys

Beef Cakes,beastly,solid build to big muscles these are the “adonis” of Asian pop.Male K-pop stars like Rain,2pm’s Teacyeon,Big Bang’s Tae Yang,etc.. fit in these category.Males with short torso or stocky built fit perfectly in this category also.Why,because it allows you to bulk up your body size.The ideal shape is men who have a V shape or rectangular.Meaning from the broadness of his shoulder to the narrow division of his torso and length of the waist line.Those who have V shape means their torso is narrow to waist line but shoulders are extremely broad representing  a V shape.A male with a rectangular body means their shoulder and waist line are almost the same length.Having a straight torso that is even with upper and lower body.

Lean and Mean

Like beef cakes those who are lean body can bulk but not as greatly.Mostly possessing a muscular body or semi slim athletic body but still having a much longer torso.This is a common body type for athletes who are tall with natural muscular built. Despite being tall doesn’t give them a large body frame.Like beastly boys their muscle are define greatly but still have the image of an ultra slim body. Most common to have a V shape except the torso is much longer with the waist line more define.The peaks and biceps aren’t as large but extremely muscular for a small frame.

Skinny Mini

Naturally most Asian people even men do not have extremely large body masses.Due to diet and region which can affect a person height.Slim boys are the usually norm specially when it comes to high fashion.Still posses a minor athletic body to very small muscle mass.These guys can still have a six-pack but it isn’t always as define.Men who have rectangular bodies usually are slim built.

Average Joe

The average joe isn’t much but still consider having somewhat of an athletic built.Guys who are average fit in their weight class but not extremely muscular or to slim.The average joe is what most men fit and so do women.Having the right weight for your body frame.Without bulking up or going through hassle of defining your abdominal and biceps.

Cubby Wubby

Some people are just naturally large frame  or will always have a little more baggage on their body .Being chubby in K-pop is a sin if not extremely unattractive.The idea of someone who is over weight or has a large frame size can seem as being lazy.Lacking any natural athletic ability which is totally incorrect.Just because that person is large doesn’t mean their incapable of achieving athleticism.There is a small number of Asian artist and actors who have large frames.As fast food and technology increase this may become the common norm.There is nothing wrong with being bigger as long your health is good.Besides chubby boys make excellent cuddle buddies.
