Having freckles is not common among Asians in general and Koreans specifically. Moreover, Korean beauty standards mention that ‘spotless skin’ as one of the basic standards. Regardless, these Korean stars look adorable and somehow show whimsical charm with freckles on their face, whether real or faux.
Korean Stars with Freckles

Making the list of Korean stars who look adorable with freckles, it would be best to begin with Kpop freckle king: Stray Kids Felix. Born on September 15, 2020, Felix blessed Kpop fans with his adorable natural freckles on his face.

I told Felix i loved his freckles, but I couldn’t see it clearly because the make up covered it.— JEY 제이 (@SKZ2017) May 6, 2018
And then he wiped off his foundation. I was too shocked and asking why why.
He replied “For you”
