Lee Gikwang has made it to the first place of I-Magazine's Top Male Fashion Face List in Asia. The member of Highlight, formerly known as BEAST, didn't have any idea that he was chosen to be one of the most attractive men in Asia.

The next Mr. Steal-Your-Girl shared on tvN's "Wednesday Food Talk" on March 1 that he's just as surprised as anyone else when he discovered about the list. Lee Gikwang had no idea where he was named as the most handsome Asian male face. "Yes, I didn't know exactly but I found out through social media. Fashion directors and designers from Taiwan and Hong Kong were the ones that created the list. I was quite surprised that they named me on the list," said the singer as quoted by Soompi.

The TV program's host, Shin Dong Yup expressed his compliment to Lee Gikwang and said that the idol's face is indeed the best looking, and it's pretty hard to find such visage with well-defined nose and full lips in Korea. Shin Dong Yup even jokingly wondered what Lee Gikwang eats to have such beautiful face. The Highlight member then stated that he doesn't have any special food preference to keep his skin stay young and radiant. Instead, he admitted that he has sweet treats as well as foods with strong flavors.

According to CastKo, besides Lee Gikwang, other Kpop idols were also named as most beautiful faces of Asia. GOT7's Jackson holds the second place, followed by EXO's Chanyeol in the third place. Gikwang's fellow Highlight member, Yoon Doo Joon was placed in number 37. Meanwhile, actors Lee Dong Wook and Park Bo Gum secured their places in 9th and 19th places respectively.

Lee Gikwang and fellow members of Highlight reportedly have finished filming a new music video and they're ready to drop some cool teaser images for their comeback album "Can You Feel It?". This will be the first time for BEAST members to promote under the new name after their departure from former agency Cube Entertainment.
