Overcoming malicious comments when she first debuted, Huening Bahiyyih is leading Kep1er’s popularity?

Kep1er is a project girl group formed through Mnet’s survival show “Girls Planet 999”.

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.
