On June 10, BTS Jimin was crowned as the No. 1 K-pop idol who looks the best in sunglasses. The poll was held at self-ranking platform IDOLCHAMP, which runs from June 22 to July 6.

BTS Jimin Reigned as "Fashion Icon" Who Looks Best in Sunglasses
In the result announced on Saturday, the member of the global group BTS Jimin topped the list with 38.4% of the vote.
Based on the fandom data gathered on the platform, Jimin was described by fans as an idol with fair skin and a small head. With the touch of sunglasses as a fashionable item, Jimin combines the sophistication of East and West beauty.
Aside from his visual, Jimin is also recognized as a trend-setter idol who can make an item sold out every time he wears something.
An example where he proved his power to influence consumers was when he wore Gentle Monster tin sunglasses at the 2019's "Billboard Music Awards." The idol who performed "BOY WITH LUV" wearing the sunglasses made fans into a frenzy after it was sold out immediately around the world, including the United States, Korea, Germany, Canada, Japan, New Zealand, and Singapore.
The "Stephan Christian LEAN SV" sunglasses that Jimin also flaunted during the "LOVE YOURSELF TOUR in Bangkok" performance were also sold out – solidifying Jimin's modifier "Fashion icon."
On the other hand, BTS just released a new song "Permission to Dance" on July 9, gaining massive attention and support from music fans.
