Do you recognize the adorable baby girl who got a kiss from Han Hyo Joo a long time ago?
There are many talented child stars who decide to become Kpop idols when they grow up. But in this case, she’s not a child star, but still appeared on TV and even had an enviable “skinship” with Korea’s top actress. And years later, she made her debut as the maknae of the hottest rookie IVE. Isn’t this something arranged by fate?
After IVE’s debut, netizens found and started spreading an old video of Han Hyo Joo kissing a baby girl on the lips on the street. Many fans notice that the little girl looks very similar to IVE’s Leeseo. Turns out fans are right as Leeseo herself has confirmed this in a recent video call fansign.
When this adorable moment was shown on TV, Leeseo was only 3 years old and a total commoner. Leeseo‘s mother held her daughter in her arms and stopped on the street to watch Han Hyo Joo – who was extremely popular at the time thanks to the drama “Dong Yi” – filming a reality show. It was the actress who took the initiative to approach and give Leeseo a kiss because of how cute and pretty baby Leeseo was.
This is such a fateful encounter between two artists who are both currently active in the entertainment industry. Fans wonder how Han Hyo Joo will react when she learns that the baby girl she kissed back then has now become a grown-up, gorgeous female idol.
Leeseo was born in 2007 and is the youngest member of IVE. Rookie girl group IVE officially debuted on December 1 with the single album ELEVEN and the title track of the same name. The group is famous for their all-visual lineup with 2 former IZ*ONE members, Jang Wonyoung and Ahn Yujin.
Unlike Wonyoung and Yujin, who already have their own fandoms, Leeseo is a completely new face. But right after her first teaser images were published, Kpop fans quickly fell in love with her innocent and pure beauty.
Not only possessing beautiful beauty, Leeseo also has stable singing skills and good stage charisma. During the first month of debut, even though the other members constantly caught up in controversies related to their talent and attitude, Leeseo still received many compliments. Leeseo‘s expressive video while performing even went viral and reached millions of views on YouTube.
With a visual that is popular with Koreans and debuted at a very young age, Leeseo indeed has a promising future.
Despite the controversies surrounding the group, IVE is undeniably taking the spotlight during this time and is one of the most successful rookie girl groups of 2021. If the group maintains its form in their first comeback, it is highly likely that Leeseo will also become the group’s new fan-attractor.
