Fourteen K-pop and K-drama celebrities have made it to ‘The 100 Most Beautiful Faces 2013’ on IndependentCritics.com.

A HOST of K-pop singers has been included on “The 100 Most Beautiful Faces 2013” list by US-based film review website IndependentCritics.com.

A total of 14 South Koreans made the list, on which the Oscar-winning French actress Marion Cotillard was named the most beautiful face of the year.

After School’s Nana is second only to French beauty Marion Cotillard.

The South Korean highest on the list was Nana at No. 2, a singer and former model who is best known as a member of girl group After School. Despite being little known in the mainstream US media, she made the highest-ever debut on the list, which has been paying homage to the world’s beauties since 1999.

The next highest Korean on the list was Tae-yeon of Girls’ Generation, who was joined by three other group members, Jessica (No. 20), Sooyoung (No. 66) and Yoona (No. 71).

Teenage heartthrob Suzy of Miss A took the 14th spot. The versatile 19-year-old has been making a splash in the music industry and appearing on the small and big screens since her debut three years ago.
