The Annual Independent Critics or TC Chandler Lists of the 100 Most Beautiful & 100 Most Handsome Faces... did a separate poll for 100 Most Handsome and Beautiful Asians 2018. In this article, I will highlight the ones listed from Japan. Because that is my bias. : ) I welcome other people to do the same for their country of choice.
The people were picked from over 10 billion Social media impressions. Over 300 million likes/reposts, 1.05 million followers on Instagram and Weibo, and 1000 worldwide news articles.
I am including what they were in for the year 2018 unless the last thing they were in is 5 years or older, then I will pick their 2019 work. Adding agency just because I want to.
