From May 17 to the 23, fans on the app Whosfan were asked to vote for which K-Pop idol they think has the best facial expressions out of 10 nominees.
The nominees included five female idols (MAMAMOO‘s Hwasa, BLACKPINK‘s Jennie, Billlie‘s Tsuki, IVE‘s Wonyoung, and Kep1er‘s Kim Dayeon) and five male idols (BTS‘s V, Stray Kids‘ Hyunjin, ATEEZ‘s San, TXT‘s Beomgyu, and ENHYPEN‘s Ni-ki), all of whom are known as phenomenal performers!
The idol who came in first place was a close race, but ATEEZ’s “Stage Genius” San ended up making the top spot with 46.7% of the total votes!
In close second was Hyunjin with 43% of the votes, and in third was Ni-ki with 7.1% of the total.
It’s not new information that San is phenomenal at expressing himself and really embracing a character on-stage, and he has received a lot of well-deserved praise for these talents already.
In the K-Pop age where more idols are using facial expressions to add intrigue and captivation to a performance, the ATEEZ member (and his fellow members, for that matter) has arguably been leading the pack in this trend!
And it seems easy for San, with how naturally his various personas come across on-stage, but that doesn’t mean it deserves to be praised any less.
Here are some fans reactions to the news of him winning top place in this poll!

ATEEZ just released their second Japanese mini-album, BEYOND : ZERO, and released a performance version of the song “ROCKY (Boxers Ver.)” as a treat for fans today, where San (and the other members) really shows off his incredible performance abilities!
