Do you like cats or puppies? I’m not asking you about real cats or puppies. I’m talking about the face type of a person. In Korea, it’s common to classify people’s (usually women’s) faces into cat-faces or puppy-faces based on the shapes and the ratio of eyes, nose, mouth, and facial lines.

Let us explain more about each type with the examples of Korean female actresses and K-pop idols. Why don’t you run to the mirror and check which face type you have?

Cat-face Actresses

It is said that those who have cat-faces have sharp and edgy lines on their faces. Their eyes are narrow and slanted. They also have sharp noses. Due to their clean-cut features, they tend to have a strong, sexy, chick aura. Sometimes they are misunderstood that they are cold and lofty.
