You know those moments in life where everything just seems to be annoying to you? Don’t worry, you’re not alone. It happens even to the best of us! Whether you’re needing some good death-glare inspo to help you practice mentally taking down your enemies or you just need someone to commiserate with in the depths of your angst, these idols are here for you. (These GIFs also make great replies to those texts for which you have… no words. Just bookmark this page, trust me.)
In no particular order, here are 11 idols with angry stares that are so intimidating, terrifying, or just plain adorable that they could probably kill.
1. BTS’ Suga
BTS’s rapper Suga is just always a whole mood: from his professed love of sleeping to his “done with the world” facial expressions, he’s proven time and time again that he’s just the epitome of relatable. He’s not afraid to let his opinions be known, and his honesty is always appreciated!
2. Red Velvet’s Irene
She’s not called Red Velvet’s “ice princess” for nothing; the combination of Irene’s flawless visuals and candid expressions is definitely intimidating. While she might seem unapproachable at times, Red Velvet’s leader is actually very kind, and she cares deeply for the other members. Cold and sweet… like ice cream cake! (Get the reference?)
3. EXO’s D.O.
While D.O.’s glares may seem to be the result of annoyance or anger, he’s confessed that his terrifying stares are actually caused by his bad vision — his astigmatism means that he has to squint whenever he doesn’t wear his glasses. Fellow EXO member Chanyeol is known to be especially scared of D.O.’s death glare, but maybe he should be more worried about D.O.’s judo skills!
4. BLACKPINK’s Jennie
BLACKPINK is known for their girl crush concepts, and Jennie’s heated stare definitely helps to give her that badass image BLACKPINK slays in their performances and music videos. She’s sweet and silly offstage, but her on-stage persona is powerful and sultry — helped, of course, by her cat-eyed glare. Her duality is unparalleled!
5. MONSTA X’s Joohoney
MONSTA X is another group that’s well-known for their fierce concept choices and fiery on-stage personas. Rapper and vocalist Joohoney is no exception, and his intimidating stares certainly make him seem like a stone-cold star. But Monbebes know better — in real life, Joohoney is like a giant teddy bear!
6. TWICE’s Nayeon
Idols generally do a great job of remaining professional on-camera, but sometimes the face just doesn’t lie! That certainly seems to be the case for TWICE’s Nayeon, who has gifted us with a wealth of expressions that are so cute that they’ve probably caused a few ONCEs to have heart attacks. How can she be so angry and so adorable at the same time?!
7. SEVENTEEN’s Wonwoo
It doesn’t seem possible to give a finger heart scarily, but somehow SEVENTEEN’s Wonwoo has mastered it. He’s got one of the best salty expressions in the business, so much so that he’s been asked to recreate it on variety shows and radio programs time and time again. Death glare or blank stare? The world may never know.
8. ITZY’s Ryujin
ITZY’s Ryujin is another idol with a glare so charismatic it could probably kill. Her fierce looks only add to her intense girl crush persona, and she fits right in with ITZY’s confident group vibe. Anyone on the receiving end of that fiery of a glare would be a goner for sure!
9. SHINee’s Key
From subtle eye-rolls to full-on death stares, Key has gifted us with endless expressions to pad out our stash of reaction GIFs. Whenever you’re feeling frustrated, angry, annoyed, or just simply done with life, take a deep breath and remember that Key has been there too. And at least you’re not the one being targeted by his laser-beam glare!
10. f(x)’s Krystal
f(x)’s maknae Krystal is another star with some brutally honest expressions — you can always count on Krystal to tell it like it is! Her death glares hold nothing back, and her various expressions of distaste are an inspiration for those with even the strongest stares. The power she holds in one look is terrifying!
11. GOT7’s Jackson
This GIF is so legendary that we couldn’t not include it! While Jackson may be GOT7’s comedy king, he has his own fair share of shiver-inducing death glare capabilities as well. Whether you’re looking to let someone know that you’re totally done with them or just ready to throw down, a glare like Jackson’s is sure to knock ’em dead.
