The Korean newspaper recently named 6 Kpop idols of the 3rd generation who deserve to be on the list of ‘Entertainment Leaders’ – Kpop idols with top entertainment skills.
Recently, the Korean newspaper SPOTV published an article on the topic that 3rd generation idols are ‘mood-makers’ in entertainment shows. They said that currently 3rd generation idols continue to have active activities when appearing on many TV shows. Below is a list of 6 Kpop idols favored by SPOTV to be included in the list of ‘Entertainment Leaders‘ – Kpop idols with top entertainment skills.
Ravi is known for his sense of humour, so he is also popular with the producers. He now has a fortune in shows like ‘Don’t Be Jealous’ (MBS), ‘Give Away the Answers Quiz Show: Today’s Delivery’ (SBS), ‘Idol Dictation Contest’ (tvN)… as well as invitations to many other shows. In 2020, Ravi won ‘Entertainment Idol of the Year‘ at the ‘2020 Brand of the Year Award.’
Kai (EXO) is not only considered a dance genius but also a “top entertainment idol” of Kpop. Accordingly, the male idol is highly appreciated for his innate and natural sense of humor, in addition, he also has an extremely unique and attractive aura whenever he appears on the show. Kai is considered as the golden face of tvN station after attending shows like ‘Devil Wears Jeongnam‘, ‘Idol Dictation Contest‘, ‘Sixth Sense 2‘ and ‘Udo Inn‘. In addition, the male idol also attracted attention with appearances on ‘Knowing Bros’ (JTBC) or ‘I Live Alone’ (MBC).
Mijoo (Former Lovelyz member)
Mijoo is not only very beautiful but also has an interesting personality when participating in variety shows. She can bring laughter thanks to her sense of humor and natural reactions. Among the shows she has participated in, Mijoo attracted the most attention with ‘How Do You Play?’ (MBC) and ‘Sixth Sense’ (tvN). Recently, Mijoo was also awarded ‘Entertainment Idol of the Year‘ at the ‘2021 Brand of the Year Award.’
Boo Seungkwan (SEVENTEEN)
It would be a huge omission if this list did not have the name of Boo Seungkwan (SEVENTEEN). The male idol is appreciated for his friendliness and humor. Recently Seungkwan appeared on 2 tvN shows ‘Racket Boys’ and ‘Idol Dictation Contest’. In addition, the appearance of the male idol as a guest in ‘Amazing Saturday’ and ‘MMTG’ also made Korean netizens excited.
Jangjun (Golden Child)
Although Golden Child has not yet achieved explosive success, member Jangjun of the group is now very popular when appearing on variety shows. Jangjun has participated, as a guest or as a talented host, in many variety shows such as ‘The Shop Next to the Best’ (kakaoTV), ‘Idol Dictation Contest’ (tvN), ‘Dringking’. Guys’ (iHQ)…
Choi Yena (Former member of IZ*ONE)
Last on this list, SPOTV named Choi Yena – a former IZ*ONE member. This is something that can confuse many fans because they don’t understand why Yena is listed in the list of 3rd generation idols because IZ*ONE is considered a 4th generation group and debuted in 2018 (similar to Jangjun’s case as Golden Child debuted in 2017). However, it is possible that because IZ*ONE has disbanded or because they still consider the idol debuting in 2018 as the 3rd generation, this newspaper still includes Yena in the list.
Ever since participating in ‘Produce 48’, Choi Yena has been known for her outstanding personality when bringing a unique fun and humorous atmosphere. After that, Yena’s vivacity and intelligence helped her begin to have the opportunity to participate in many entertainment shows, typically ‘Prison Life of Fools’ (tvN) and ‘Game of Blood’ (MBC). Yena also has her own variety show called ‘Yena’s Animal Detective.’
