LE SSERAFIM’s Huh Yunjin and her total transformation: from Ariana Grande look-alike to a classy lady-like Kpop idol

Netizens were completely blown away by the stark difference between LE SSERAFIM’s Huh Yunjin in the US and her now. 

As the main vocalist of HYBE Labels’ first girl group LE SSERAFIM, Huh Yunjin quickly drew attention from both domestic and international fans. As a result, old photos of the female idol also became the talk of town, and netizens can’t help but express their shock at Yunjin’s total transformation

Born in 2001, Huh Yunjin made her first public appearance in the Mnet survival show “Produce 48”, as a trainee from Pledis Entertainment. She, along with her senior Lee Kaeun (former After School member), soon gained popularity with their chemistry, and Yunjin was even voted to be the Top 3 visual by other trainees in the program. 


Having moved to New York, USA, since she was 8 month old, Huh Yunjin is a fluent English speaker with various past photos taken in this country. During her time in the US, Yunjin looked super fierce with heavy makeup and highlighted hair. 

With this Asian baby girl kind of style, nobody expected Yunjin to become a Kpop idol. 
Some even compared the female idol to famous pop star Ariana Grande
Huh Yunjin looked like a whole badass in her old photos. 

Upon returning to Korea, Yunjin had her signature mole removed and her style changed to be more sweet and feminine.    

The female idol has gone through a total transformation as shown in “Produce 48”. 

Huh Yunjin in Korea and in the US look like completely different people. It seems that Source Music (subsidiary of HYBE Labels and agency of LE SSERAFIM) knows how to highlight the idol’s best feature, and create the visuals that we get to see today.
