Sometimes it's hard to imagine our parents as anything other than 'uncle' or 'aunty'. 

But once upon a time, they were young too. And now, thanks to their children's TikToks, these dads are going viral for their old photos. 

These TikToks mostly follow the same format: clips of dads doing 'uncle' or everyday things, followed by a montage of photos from their heyday. 

With all due respect....WE ARE IN LOVE. 


happy birthday to the old man #sgtiktok

As our parents used to say back then - hubba hubba!


When you want to hop on the trend but dad hates being on social media

This dad, who gives us major TVB vibes, was a huge hit, as this TikTok has amassed almost 7,000 adoring comments. 


Tbh still ham now 👌🏻 #dad

This dad said he was a pretty boy back in the day, and well, he's not wrong. 

We're still not convinced that the photos in this mega-viral TikTok aren't of Nam Joo Hyuk


respectfully, my dad WINS this trend and yes he was a model and pageant king but he was no player bc he has the most compassionate heart#dadchallenge

This dad was not only a model, but according to his daughter, he is one of the most compassionate, loyal, and loving people she knows. Don't you just love when the inside matches the outside? 

Cue a plethora of "not me simping over your dad" comments. 


hope he doesn’t see this

This dad's radiant smile and confident stance set our hearts aflutter.

Responses to these TikToks have ranged from "Why did everyone look like an 80s Hong Kong star", to "he definitely broke hearts", to "this is why I don't want to grow old". 

But what can we say - getting older is just a natural part of life, and these dads have aged gracefully from 'oppa' to 'hunkle'. 

At any rate, Father's Day is coming up, so we can only hope to see more TikToks like these over the weekend 😍
