If 2PM is the N*Sync of Thailand, then Taecyeon is Justin Timberlake. Recently, this heartthrob of the Korean boy band world posed shirtless for the cover of Men’s Health Korea, along with an accompanying video.

It’s Taecyeon’s so-called “Spartan abs” that helped give 2PM the nickname “beast idol,” presumably referring to their beast-like demeanor when hitting the gym.

We don’t remember Timberlake and JC looking like this guy back in the day. Maybe they would have if they’d just lifted a few weights. (Those bums.)
