We thought wrong.

In no particular order, here are the candidates for the Top Ten Summer Bodies in K-Pop! Now it’s up to you to vote for the idol you think has the best summer body!
Top Ten Hottest Summer Bodies!
Often referred to as the Yoona of Super Junior (for more reasons than one), Choi Siwon’s role in Asia’s biggest boy band is clear. Just look at him! With his sexy trademark eyebrows and that piercing gaze, sometimes we forget how built this man is. Looks like someone wasn’t wearing a smock during art class~

The powerful diva-rapper of the Wonder Girls placed second in MTV K’s poll for sexiest female idol. So naturally, Yubin’s in the running for hottest summer body as well! In addition to her gorgeous looks and toned body, Yubin’s been getting noticed for her impeccable fashion taste as well!

With a sexy R&B vocal color to complement his rock-hard chocolate abs, Big Bang’s Taeyang is every girl’s dream. Who cares if he’s only like 5’5″, 5’6″? Just watch one performance of “I’ll Be There” and your doubts about his sexiness will vanish into thin air!

We thought about passing the baton over to Seohyun or Yoona this time around, but it can’t be helped – Girls’ Generation’s Yuri has got ideal proportions for a beach babe. Plus, she makes for a pretty hot lifeguard!

A first look at the prettiest member of 2PM tells you he’s the most adorable thing alive. And you wouldn’t expect such a muscular build on someone with such a pretty face. But alas, this Olympian creature exists – and he goes by the name of Nichkhun Buck Horvejkul. (In reality, we wish we could nominate all six members for this beauty pageant, but we settled with sending in the Thai Prince as the group’s representative)!

It was a tough decision between After School‘s Gahee and UEE, but K-Pop’s sweetheart nabbed the nomination for hottest summer body — Thanks to her long legs, honey thighs, and impeccable S-line.

Who knew the vocal powerhouse of 2AM was rocking a hot bod as well? Changmin surprised (and delighted) his fans when he collaborated with 8eight‘s equally-as-shockingly-fit Lee Hyun for their project album Homme. Imagine seeing this rugged hunk of muscle at the beach…

Meet the MTV K reader’s choice for Sexiest Female Idol. Ga-In‘s a spunky blend of cute and sexy, giving off a potently curious allure. The petite beauty queen uploaded photos of herself at a pool on her Cyworld, and netizens went crazy over her gorgeous body!

F(x)‘s Victoria, the other half of Khuntoria, K-Pop’s hottest make-believe couple, is best known for her unbelievable flexibility. And it’s no surprise that she’s got a glamorous body with which to pull off those insane stretches.

If you saw TVXQ‘s Changmin our Top Ten Sexiest Male Idols list, you’ll remember that charismatic leader U-Know Yunho was disqualified for his man boobs. This time around, we’re giving him bonus points for his… twin assets. (Yes, we’re shameless, we know.)

While these next two heavy-hitters aren’t really considered young idols anymore, it’s impossible not to mention them in a face-off like this. Especially considering that they have been the reigning King and Queen of all that is sexy in K-Pop for years now. As the saying goes, “Age before beauty,” and these hot icons give K-Pop a good taste of both!
Lee Hyori. Need I say more? This woman is a legend in the world of K-Pop, and her photoshoots always reflect her flawless (not to mention natural) beauty. Praised by netizens for her goddess-like body and honest personality, Hyori could knock out the competition with her clothes on. But we’re picking the hottest summer body this week, so… yeah.

Back in ’09, MTV Iggy reviewed what was to be Rain‘s breakthrough Hollywood film, Ninja Assassin: “Rain went from an adorable bubblegum pop-star to a chiseled leading man who can squeeze grapes in the ridges of his new six-pack.” Can’t say it any better than this! How will his fans survive during the two year drought after he begins his military sentence this summer?!

(I’d also like to give a personal shout out to Calvin Klein for taking their turn with practically every idol group. Marketing strategy for jeans = shirtless idols = ♥)
