It’s not every day that a guy dancing around on a fake horse makes headlines, but that’s precisely what Psy did with the video for his über-viral 2012 hit “Gangnam Style.” Most of the 2 billion people that watched the music video didn’t pick up on the deeper social commentary and critique of Korea’s middle class, but it’s plain to pretty much anyone who knows where Gangnam is and how to pronounce it. What’s more, it was not an isolated incident. Hiding amid the sequins and leather tap pants, some other popular K-pop groups are coming out with incisive messages of their own.

Barbie is one of the most popular dolls for girls all around the world. Its pretty face and sexy figure has become a standard of beauty for some, if not most, women.

At 30, Park Bom may be the oldest amongst the idols here, but she earned a spot on this list thanks to her ageless beauty. Her big round eyes, pointy nose, full lips and small face give her an unreal yet beautiful doll-like look.
