Twitter users wrote about the teen:
“He’s cuter than most girls.”
“Yup, no matter how you look at him, he definitely looks like a girl.”
“This kind of beautiful boy is a momentary sparkle, so he’s very precious.”
While most netizens seem to be responding positively, there are still those who criticize him for “pretending” to be a girl. Luckily, Baku addressed this in a Twitter post. He says his mother told him he’s “fine just the way he is” after he tried to fit in with other boys. Apparently, he was called out as “creepy” when some of them found out that he likes dolls more than soccer.

Soon after, he took his mother’s advice to heart and embraced who he is by changing the way he dresses, speaks, and moves. He also aspires to become a beautician some day, and while he did not win Junon’s Super Boy Contest Grand Prix, his performance surely will show his qualifications.
