Who are the most beautiful male entertainers?

Online web portal Goo decided to take on the daunting task of asking their readers which male entertainers are the most ‘beautiful’.  Even though Japan is famous for preferring ‘pretty boys’,  the inspiration came from the trend of top male entertainers being quite ‘strong’ and manly (perhaps due to monster popularity of acts like EXILE), but the resurgence of ‘beautiful men’ seems to be on the rise again.

Who do you think made the ranking? Find out below!

1. GACKT

gackt

Despite netizens trying it with GACKT earlier in the year, it’s very clear that there’s just as many who still appreciate his looks. Goo attributes his tall height, paired with his flawless skin and “mysterious atmosphere” for all the votes he received.

2. HYDE

Processed with MOLDIV

The frontman of L’Arc ~ en ~ Ciel and VAMPS naturally got a lot of votes from women, but also received a lot of attention from male users as well. Many couldn’t help but compliment his beautiful voice along with praising his ageless looks. Every time HYDE is brought up there’s usually a big fuss among netizens, common statements being “Is he really 48 years old?” “You are too beautiful…”

3. Masaki Kyomoto

Masaki Kyomoto is an actor, tarento, and guitarist who is most known for his roles in historical period dramas. Since debuting Masaki has amassed a legion of fans mainly consisting of middle aged women. A few years ago he went viral in certain parts of Asia after a picture of him posing with his son, Johnny’s Jr. member Taiga Kyomoto, hit the net. Despite there being a 34 year age difference many netizens thought Masaki was Taiga’s brother.

      Hyde should be #1.

      • morethansecret 「-」

        Ikr

    • Jin Tegoshi

      Yamapi should be 1st. I also think Miura Ryosukeand Shigeoka Daiki should be on the list.

    • nana

      Hmm, Nino should be on the list somewhere… he’s too pretty.

      • yamakita

        Miya? He’s not aging well…

      • ʕ→ᴥ←ʔ

        Nino… he isn’t really pretty. :x

      • light

        I really like his face but I’m not surprised at all he isn’t on the list. At the same time i don’t agree with the list in general, different tastes lol

      • takki

        Nino’s my fave but he’s not really pretty pretty. Potato nose, black gums, thin lips, messy brows…but combined looks very attractive to me still. Not a conventional “beauty”.

        • light

          I love his potato nose, it’s cute and suits him =) i’ve noticed that his gums look cleaner lately! I wonder if it’s really because of smoke though, he had them for years and he is still young, i read that there are different reasons for them.

        • Midna

          I’ve always wondered what he would look like if he did his brows.

    • disqus_fnwCMQDX7u

      who voted in this?? to many old visual kei guys… they were beautiful 15 years ago maybe!

      • Sawachhi

        and with make up XD

    • yamakita

      I like the fact Okada Masaki is high on the list. I’ve never understood the appeal of Ryosuke Yamada. I’m surprised Fukuyama Masaharu is not on the list because he’s already ranked #1 elsewhere, though I don’t agree.

      • hyuver

        Keyword here is “most beautiful men” not the most best looking men.

        Fukuyama Masaharu is good looking men but certainly far from whatever the “beautiful men” standard is.

      • Mahdyah Rosita

        Because Yamada is beautiful.😂

        • yamakita

          Eye of the beholder…

    • annie

      japanese women and i will never be on the same page when it comes to men lol

      what cracks me up is that i’m not even thinking from a eurocentric point of view but our taste in men really contrast with one another

      • a chicken nugget

        If you asked any other person, woman or man, from any other country, it would be so so so so different. I still can’t figure out their taste.

    • Monique Septia

      yay for yamada and inoo! but personally i find yamapi the most attractive along with sato takeru and masaki suda T.T

    • Nervi Taralin
    • Mahdyah Rosita

      Wooho two from Hey! Say! JUMP and my baby Ryosuke is at 10th? Meanwhile Jun is at 35th.. Eh..I’m still happy to see Yama-chan there.

    • Dashiya

      Lol what a random list.
      Yamapi and Hiro Mizushima should be higher though. or maybe they are more as cool than beautiful?

      No Kamenashi?

      • Summersplash

        Hiro is definite beautiful tho

    • eplizo

      Lmao GACKT stays winning.

      Anyway, Idk about the order of the list, but I generally agree with most of the names being there.

    • An_dromeda

      who the hell voted this??? XD is this a joke??? Hideaki Takizawa yamapi Haruma Miura ae all below the top 3??? top 3 is handsome???

    • Summersplash

      when miura haruma isn’t #1…. You know the list ist invalid

    • morethansecret 「-」

      HYDE and Gackt always wins though, although i much prefer HYDE to be number 1. I agree with this list but i think Takeru Satoh should be in the top 10.

    • Dalooshe

      INVALID af when bae Nagase Tomoya is not included. I don’t have anything else to say.

      • nana

        Agreed!!

      • Kiang Sheryl

        Nagase is not beautiful come on. Say he’s cool, he’s manly yeah sure. But beautiful? I don’t think so

        • Dalooshe

          He is a beautiful creature in addition to his manly, rough and cool features. Besides, he’s an A* entertainer and ranks light years ahead of most johnnies mentioned here which made me think a combination of those two should have included him. Lol obviously I’m biased and agree with some mentioned in the list for all the reasons but Nagase not being mentioned left a yuuuuuge question mark in my head.

          • takki

            If its 2000’s during Mukodono or My Boss My Hero, he’ll be missed on the list. Now he’s all manly, scruffy and delicious.

      • Dashiya

        I think why Nagase Tomoya, Kimura Takuya, Fukuyama Masaharu, Okada Junichi not the list because they are hot and manly but not beautiful.
        Beautiful more to pretty/soft face feature, good skin.

        • Gomen NASAi

    • Anikó Mészáros

      Where is Kimura Takuya? :O

    • Kisha Mane

      Should have Kamenashi Kazuya!

      • Ai Moore

        Yes I agree! I vote for kame!!!!

    • rshina

      Mizushima Hiro? I wonder what he is doing now…
      and Inoo is in the list, I’m glad not only Yamada is in the list

    • Meryem Ben Brahim

      Takki/koichi/yamapi should rank hiiiigher!! Kamenashi is missing!!!
      Visual Kei guys are scary 😭

      • kamben is here

        “Visual Kei guys are scary 😭”

        They stop being ‘scary’ once you look past their make up LOL. Oh and many of them have good voice, so they fit the ‘beautiful’ definition imo ;)

    • ʕ→ᴥ←ʔ

      Ew, Gackt? god can he even move his face anymore for all the ps he’s done? D:

      I would complain about how most of these are old bums, but.. I’d put Sakurai Sho at the top of the list, so… lmao.

    • blah

      goo rankings are always wtf to an extent. This looks like a lot of mature women voted.

      To the folks asking where Kame is, stop. He wasn’t even the most beautiful in his group.

    • light

      That’s a weird list

    • REMISU

      Uh… very interesting list. What was the age range for the voters? But I guess the key is the word “beautiful” which isn’t always synonymous to hot, sexy, or cute.

    • ja-anon

      ja-anon.livejournal.com > arama

    • neko

      I would add kikuchi fuma and kamenashi

    • Midna

      Why is Jun so low???????

    • Midori

      I really don’t understand the taste of my fellow Japanese women! xddd

    • the groupie who

      lmao I just don’t understand this list …

    • kemonomimi03

      this is so wrong. where is kentaro sakaguchi? he’s not even in the list. and jun in 35? this is a joke

      • DoSHachiko

        Check the actual article. Kentaro is in last place with 4 votes for some strange reason.

        • kemonomimi03

          what?! 4?! that really is strange.

    • Queen_Of_The_Yokai537

      IDK I like my men manly and not “pretty” or “beautiful”. There are so many actors and entertainers that I personally would have added to the list. It is funny because personally I really like J-entertainment over K-entertainment, C-entertainment etc. BUT when it comes to men I find that Korea has a wider definition when it comes to what exactly is a good looking man (even China and Taiwan do too). I feel like Japan has a very constricted view of what exactly is a handsome man. It is interesting to me that it does not have more of a broad definition. On a personal note, in dramas or even movies I fall for the random side character that is not one of the two main ones. Usually those have the look I go for. But whatever, every country has different tastes, and what is handsome or attractive to me is not to the another person.

    • Nif

      I miss Okada Junichi! He seems to be approved by male audicion too… And Saito Takumi. He is a definition of a bishonen (with the voice…)

      Agree with Takki and Daigo though.

    • kamben is here

      Kamiki Ryunosuke in this list makes me happt the most :)

    • Arron Hayre

      This list feels so outdated and average, i mean Gackt first place please. Even i feel people like Hongo Kanata shouldn’t really be on here. Where is Sakaguchi Kentaro, Sota fukushi should be higher aswell, he might not be able to act, but one thing he can do is look good.

    • Ai Moore

      Kamenashi kazuya?

    • All I can say is okay

    • Nikki ok

      the only beautiful guy on that list is sota fukushi, he really is handsome, I always try to dislike him because he can’t act and he’s overhyped but I just can’t because of his handsomeness

    • Queen_Of_The_Yokai537

      My picks would be:
      Takayuki Suzuki (MR. JAPAN 13)

    • guest

      Hyde? Maybe 10 years ago, but during the last year end shows he looked like sht.
      And what is Inoo even doing there?

    • Kiki

      No Ueda Tatsuya? And Gackt’s plasticness is scary… definitely not beautiful.

    • cheng xiao’s forehead

      This is like …. a really weird list. You sure this is from 2017??

    • Petia Vladimirova

      Hyde and Gackt definitely! But I don’t see Miyavi here, he looks amazing without make-up.

    • ooo

      The top three LOL

    • Weird list. Like Koike Teppei has that cute type of face more than beautiful, Naohito Fujiki should be higher, Hiro Mizushima should be way higher, and Fukushi Sota&Ryunosuke Kamiki are prettier than the top 8. Where’s Mukai Osamu?
      Kanata Hongo or Inoo are good looking (Inoo is cute, Hongo is more interesting than pretty) but wth are they doing in this type of list tbh.
      Where’s flumpool’s Ryuta.

    • Gee

      Yamapi, Miura Haruma , Sato takeru for me.

      • Kuro Pinku

        Me too ^^

    • mi|kshake

      Agree with Hyde!

    • Miyaka08

      for me it will always be IKUTA TOMA… next is Takumi Saito and even if he is already retired I still find Hamao Kyosuke so downright cute…

    • Egg97

      yes kiyoshi 21 wooooooo, now thats a beatiful man

    • did gackt put breast implunts?

      • Matcha
