Men’s Health, the world’s largest men’s magazine, appointed 2AM, a popular Korean boy group, as the “Honorary Cool Guy” of the year.
The international men’s magazine has thrown the event every year: designed to award the prize to one of the hottest guys among the cover models of the magazine for the given year. 2AM is the first ‘idol’ members who have been presented with the prize.
The award ceremony will be held at 8:00 a.m. on June 30 at the Millennium Hall of the Central City in southern Seoul in which the 2011 Cool Guy Contest of Men’s Health will also take place.
At the contest, Bang Si Hyuk, 2AM’s music teacher and a proven album producer, is expected to be present as one of the judges.
Fans who heard the news largely responded: “Congrats on acceding to the throne as the hottest guys.” “I’ve thought you were just romantic guys, but the world recognized that you were cool as well.”
Meanwhile, 2AM’s Changmin and Eight’s Lee Hyun are planning to come out with their first album of the project group Homme in July.
