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.

For all the winners visit Handsome and Beautiful videos on krcom.

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.

Here is a list of all the nominees

Now on to the Japanese winners.
