Why "The beautiful boy is Russian." is wrong? Thx

It shouldn't be

Handsome and beautiful do not mean the same thing. This sentence should be accepted as "The beautiful boy is Russian."

Handsome would be better translated into Romanian by "chipeș "

John Lennon had a song "Beautiful Boy", about his little child. Beautiful should be accepted here

When I translate from Romanian "Baiatul frumos este Rus" to English, how should I guess what to choose handsome or beautiful? Is there some hint?

I think both should be accepted. However, in English, beautiful is usually associated with women and handsome is usually associated with men.
