Cha Eunwoo is well-known among K-Pop fans for his handsome visuals. Although he might look cold and unapproachable, he is actually a friendly person in real life. Due to his good looking face, he is named one of the best visuals among Korean idols.

Besides that, his facial features have been compared to a real life anime character. Known in Korean as “ManJjitNam” (만찢남) – the term literally means “a man who comes out straight from a comic book”. It means a good looking guy who appears in romantic comic books, typically targeted to younger female audience.
