On June 10, Dutch visual arts team Sluis Painting announced that BTS’s Jin had been shortlisted for the title of “The World’s Most Perfect Male Face”. Today, on June 19, he was crowned the winner! Here’s the analysis on why Jin’s face is literally perfect according to science.
According to Sluis Painting, celebrities from 43 countries underwent a facial analysis in their search for the most perfect male and female faces in the world. The team reported that they used a combination of modern digital face mapping techniques and mathematical analysis based on facial measurements in order to reach their conclusion.
The top 3 finalists in the male category were British actor Henry Cavill, Australian actor Jacob Elordi, and (of course) none other than BTS’s Jin.
Now, Sluis Painting has announced the winners of the “World’s Most Perfect Face” title, and ARMYs aren’t surprised to see that Jin has been crowned #1! But just what makes his face so perfect?
Sluis Painting analyzed the candidates faces according to the Golden Ratio, which determines a person’s beauty and attractiveness based on the measurements of their facial features, their positions, and the distances between them. In their final conclusion, the team determined that Jin has an “almost perfect face scientifically”.
For one, Jin’s face is pretty much perfectly symmetrical and ovular, which is a definite rarity. Sluis Painting went on to say that his ears are the perfect size, fitting squarely into the middle third of his face.
On top of that, his eyes are perfectly spaced—the difference between them is the width of one of his eyes, which the golden ratio says is perfect.
Finally, Sluis Painting pointed out how the edges of his nose (which is also perfectly proportioned) line up exactly with the inner corners of his eyes.
Jin joins American actress Anne Hathaway, who was awarded the “World’s Most Perfect Female Face” title. She beat out German actress Laura Berlin and French-American actress Roxane Mesquida.
Of course, this isn’t the first time Jin’s face has been scientifically proven to be perfect. A Czech doll design team called CzDollic analyzed 18,000 male faces from 58 countries last year, and Jin came out on top for his facial symmetry, oval features, and beautifully curved mouth.
And in 2018, a plastic surgeon said that out of 269 Asian male faces, Jin matched the golden ratio of 1:1.618 perfectly.
