As much as we do enjoy the perfect appearances of idols, we all know that they’re more than just visuals. In fact, each one of them bears an intriguing personality, and some of them happen to exude a certain “boyfriendy” aura. Although we can never claim to know them on a personal level, sometimes we spot our faves in situations that give us an idea or two about their potential romantic side.

Based on what we’ve either speculated or witnessed so far, here are seven idols who would be boyfriend goals!

1. GOT7’s Jackson – The protective boyfriend

Thanks to his cheerful character, Jackson will literally brighten up your day and draw a constant smile on your face. But one more thing to admire about him is his chivalrous side. As seen below, you can perfectly feel safe in his presence since he won’t hesitate to speak up for your sake when a situation goes awry.

2. Super Junior’s Choi Siwon – The sweet boyfriend

Having someone like Siwon in your life is a godsend gift. Make no mistake, beneath his rock-hard body lies a very soft person who can make your day by catering to you beyond your expectations. Basically, he’s an “Oppa that can do everything”!

3. Eric Nam – The attentive boyfriend

If you happen to show interest in something that you know nothing about, Eric’s got you covered! Nothing beats sharing a memorable moment with your significant other as he lovingly guides you through your newly-found hobby while being mindful around you. An honorable man, he is!

4. BTOB’s Yook Sungjae – The thoughtful boyfriend

Having a thoughtful boyfriend is highly appreciated, and Sungjae is the ultimate candidate. In this brief clip, you can see how he’s acting as a human confetti shield while Taeyeon is struggling with it during her speech.

5. Henry Lau – The courteous boyfriend

Speaking of manners, Henry is a true gentleman. With his lady feeling uncomfortable because of her short skirt, he instantly offers his blazer to cover her legs, pretending that he doesn’t feel cold at all. The thought of your partner offering his jacket on a chilly day is definitely heartwarming!

6. BTS’s Jimin – The comforting boyfriend

On top of his kind and sweet nature towards everyone, Jimin’s embrace is definitely something to look forward to, especially since he picked koalas as his spirit animal (simply because he loves hugs). So no matter what kind of mood you’re in, a loving squeeze from Jimin is enough to fill your heart!

7. BIGBANG’s Taeyang – The expressive boyfriend

While he is now taken and happily fulfilling his hubby duties, an acknowledgement is in order for Taeyang’s expressive side, which he diligently shows in his music. One of his most memorable musical displays of affection remains his epic hit single “Eyes, Nose, Lips” which moved our hearts to say the least.
