Yoon Chae Won is considered the nation’s little sister of Kpop’s new generation as she bears many similarities with IU both in visuals and vocals.
Yoon Chae Won was born in 2003. Because she looks like IU, ever since her first appearance on MBC’s survival show “My Teenage Girls”, Chae Won has received much attention. Her high vocals and stable live singing also helped her receive all 4/4 votes from the judges.
She may look soft and innocent, but Yoon Chae Won said that she loves watching action movies and taking part in games and challenges that require physical strength and precision.
In an interview, the 19-year-old vocalist revealed that Big Bang and Sistar inspired her to follow the dream of becoming an idol. Meanwhile, IU and Taeyeon are her role models among Kpop singers.
Yoon Chae Won is considered by the mentors to have the best vocal range and strongest ability to be in charge of high notes among “My Teenage Girls” trainees.
On the final night, the female idol born in 2003 was the last contestant to win the debut slot in the top 7 with 198,915 votes. Chae Won shared, “Thank you to everyone who supported and loved me. Thank you to my family, especially my mother, for always taking care of me. I promise to work hard in the future.”
Meanwhile, as previously reported, the winning lineup will begin their first activities as CLASSy. They opened an online fan meeting shortly after the finale ended. After that, the show’s contestants will also hold a special concert in April.
After 3 months, under the fair guidance of teachers including Yuri (SNSD), dancer Aiki, So Yeon ((G)I-DLE) and Ock Joo Hyun (Fin.KL), 7 best trainees have been selected to debut as CLASSy.
According to a report from MBC, with the goal of creating a global girl group that has the potential to enter the Billboard charts, CLASSy will be managed by M25 in Korea and Universal Music Japan in Japan. Although there is no specific information about the debut date, the members are actively practicing to prepare for the debut.
