Intense visual competition among 04 liner rookies from IVE, NMIXX and KEP1ER

The visuals of K-pop rookie female idols born in 2004 seem promising.

After the famous 97 Liner squad in K-Pop with 3rd generation gathering, the Korean music industry welcomed a new generation of elites born in 2004. For some reason, a huge number of female idol rookies in Kpop these days belong to 04-line.

The 3 girl groups with the most potential in 2022, IVE – KEP1ER and NMIXX, also have many members with this birth year in the lineup, making the audience compare the 04-liners of the above 3 groups.

Wonyoung – Rei – Liz (IVE)

IVE has 6 members, 3 of whom belong to the 04-line: Wonyoung, Rei and Liz. In particular, Wonyoung, the most controversial female idol at the beginning of 2022, is probably the most famous 04-er among those included in this list. Besides Wonyoung, the other two Rei and Liz also attracted a lot of attention from Kpop fans.

Netizens do not appreciate IVE for their singing talent, but the group’s visuals have always been praised from the very first day. Wonyoung, Rei and Liz have their own beauty, making fans flutter when they appear in the same frame.

Huening Bahiyyih – Seo Youngeun – Ezaki Hikaru (KEP1ER)

Mixed angel Huening Bahiyyih, Seo Youngeun and Japanese member Ezaki Hikaru are also rising 04-ers of Kpop. Thanks to the positive effects from the debut with KEP1ER, Bahiyyih is gradually getting love from the public, proving that she is an idol with a true ability, not one getting famous thanks to her brother.

Contrary to Bahiyyih, who has been praised many times for her enhanced beauty, the other 2 members of KEP1ER, Youngeun and Hikaru, are not very outstanding when standing next to others. In the discussion topics about IVE and KEP1ER, most of the opinions agreed that the Mnet girl group won IVE in all aspects. but visually, the Starship girl group is really one step ahead.

  • NMIXX’s Sullyoon is so pretty. When her teaser was released, she stood out compared to other members. 
  • It’s clear that idols from big companies always have a more attractive aura!  NMIX is so pretty!
  • Kep1er’s 04-line is inferior to the other 2 groups.  However, the other members of Kep1er like Chaehyun, Xiaoting, Mashiro are also very pretty
  • I used to think IVE was the prettiest girl group of the 4th generation until I saw NMIXX!
  • 2004 is such a great year!
