Scientists Finally Explain Why Asians Look So Cute

64787 ratings | 1919031 views
What does it mean to be “cute”? Beauty standards and perceptions of attractiveness vary across cultures, but one thing is clear: being called “cute” is something entirely different. Is there a scientific explanation of why our brains perceive some people as “cute” and others as “beautiful,” “hot,” and so on? We’re about to answer all of them with the help of science! TIMESTAMPS: Why we find babies so cute 1:13 What the EDAR gene is 2:28 What sexual dimorphism is 3:47 How Korean pop music is changing the world 4:35 #jimin #BTS #asianbeauty Preview photo credit: Park Ji-min at Aladdin fansign on September 22, 2017: By Jimson Weed - 170922 알라딘 팬싸, CC BY 4.0 https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/deed.ru, https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?curid=63822530 Animation is created by Bright Side. Music: https://www.youtube.com/audiolibrary/music SUMMARY: - There are other traits in babies that our brain, for whatever reason, finds adorable. They have a disproportionate head-to-body size and short limbs. In fact, if babies were proportioned more like mini-adults, we probably wouldn’t be as inclined to coo at them! - East Asian people tend to hold onto these features into adulthood, a phenomenon called “neoteny.” Studies have found that neotenous faces are often perceived as more social and feminine, whereas non-neotenous faces are seen as more intimidating. - The EDAR gene controls the development of our hair, skin, and teeth. This mutation causes people to have thicker hair shafts, more oil glands (which helps keep skin looking youthful for longer), and less breast tissue in females. - Sexual dimorphism is what makes males and females of the same species look different. So, less sexual dimorphism means men with neotenous faces tend to look more feminine. - The recent surge in the worldwide popularity of Korean pop music (abbreviated as Kpop) with groups like BTS has put this cultural difference in the spotlight. Rather than exhibiting the sort of “macho” features of Western standards of male beauty, sensational Kpop stars like Jimin have smooth faces, slim bodies, and an overall feminine appearance.

Hey guys! What is a cute guy or a cute girl for you? And what's so special about Jimin, guys? :)
Radha Rathod (1 month ago)
He has a great personality, is a versatile dancer and his vocals have improved so much! He takes care of people be it family, BTS, friends or the fandom. Though his smile makes your day, but the fact that he is such a good soul is what I find the cutest about him.

I dont think feminine looking asian men are going to replace masculine looking men anytime soon - just look at the leads of major films involving asian men - those guys aren't feminine. Also - how much plastic surgery do these guys have? It's awful.

Honestly it’s a smooth face and a weird laugh that make someone cute. Jimin is my second favorite but Jungkook is more a feature person for me. His laugh and youngest and strong muscles put together make a ultimate love! *ARMY COME OUT*

Jimin is cute, but he is not just cute. He is BEAUTIFUL. Of course, ALL the men of BTS are beautiful, and it is a masculine beauty. Don't beauty standards also have a lot to do with symmetry? In BTS, Namjoon is my bias, but if I had to rank them by looks (which I don't know that I could do, because I'd change my mind every two seconds depending on the picture or the video I looked at), I'd probably put Jimin first, and Namjoon a very, very close second. I've noticed that Namjoon seems to be more popular with Western women than he is with Asian women...has anyone else noticed that? I truly appreciate the Chris Hemsworth's of the world, but I have ALWAYS had a huge appreciation for beautiful Asian men. And please don't flame me, because this is just my personal opinion, but I've always thought that humans who are of half Asian descent and half Western European descent are the most beautiful humans in general, especially the men. Hmm...I guess it's how the genes mix together?

If someone is cute, the characteristics will be (for me): - likes to joke/laugh - Talk using a baby voice (my crush do that, don't ask me) - and..... Have a cute smile....
