Huening Bahiyyih’s debut caused a controversy, but she is now one of the most outstanding members.
Kep1er is a project girl group formed through Mnet’s survival show “Girls Planet 999”. When the final lineup was decided, Huening Bahiyyih was the member causing the most controversy, especially in Korea, due to mixed reactions to both her visuals and talents. However, at the moment, Huening Bahiyyih is leading Kep1er’s popularity.
During the show and when she first debuted, Huening Bahiyyih’s mixed-race visuals did not receive much love from the Korean public. However, after she dyed her hair blonde, Bahiyyih’s beauty was said to be upgraded, helping her stand out from the group and draw more keen attention.
Huening Bahiyyih was also criticized for lacking talents, and that she only debuted because of her famous brother, TXT’s Huening Kai. In Kep1er’s debut album “First Impact”, Bahiyyih barely got lines. Her screentime was also little. However, after “Queendom 2” and Kep1er’s first comeback with “UP!”, she got more chance to shine.
Huening Bahiyyih is known to have a large international fanbase. Therefore, her individual fancams are often among the most viewed. In Kep1er’s latest comeback, Bahiyyih has the second-most viewed fancams.
In addition, Huening Bahiyyih is also known for her wide connection. As the younger sister of TXT’s Huening Kai and VIVA Huening Lea, the female idol received strong support from her family. Despite being a rookie, Huening Bahiyih is already close with members from other groups, such as LE SSERAFIM Eunchae, Woo!ah! Nana, and LIGHTSUM Nayoung.
Now, Huening Bahiyyih is expected to continue to amplify her current strengths and establish a strong footing in the Kpop industry.
Having experienced various hardships, Huening Bahiyyih managed to prove her talent and passion, while also contributing to her group with her wide connections and numerous international fans.
