All you need to know about NewJeans: “Monster Rookie” on the raise to a global success 

NewJeans quickly captivates non-fans and the public five months after debut. 

2022 is the year for female K-pop girl groups to thrive, with rookie debuts taking over the social media and establishing astonishing achievements. NewJeans is setting a firm foundation for their successful future with a lively Y2K spirit permeating the scene. 

Debuting at a young age, the members have diverse origins 

NewJeans has a unique debut unlike other HYBE groups. They dropped a MV out of the blue and struck the audience with sound and image. Five members were brand new faces who have never participated in any idol contests in Korea, making the public curious about who they might be. NewJeans is a combination of five girls born in early 2000, including: Hanni, Minji, Danielle, Haerin and Hyein. Hanni and Minji were born in 2004 and the oldest in the group while Hyein was born in 2008 and is still a middle-school student.
