Outstanding beauty is the first factor that recruiters of entertainment companies think of when choosing trainees, who will soon become idols of many people.
Instead of finding new idols through auditions or competitions, many entertainment companies have interesting recruitment methods. A trainee can be recruited right on the street or at their idol’s concert just because of their excellent visuals.
Fans themselves also admit that these unconventional ways always work. The proof is that when looking at a series of the pictures that were taken at school or yearbook photos of these idols, we all have to agree with the selection department’s excellent eyes.
1. Karina (aespa)
With an impressive debut, Karina has made her fans fall in love with the female idol’s beautiful voice and skillful choreography. In addition, her great beauty is also the reason why she is praised so much. Her photos from school days have proven the beauty “in the infancy” of Karina.
It is known that before debuting as a member of aespa, Karina owned a large number of followers on her social network accounts because of her beautiful pictures. That’s the reason why she was noticed by SM and they sent her a casting invitation through her accounts. At first, Karina was quite skeptical so she had to consult her parents to participate in the selection.
Since joining SM, Karina has often been the company’s favorite for collaborating with other idols and received many positive comments. It can be said that Karina is the newest pet of SM Entertainment.
2. Chuu (LOONA)
The group’s name is inspired by the moonlight, so LOONA is considered by fans to possess a lot of outstanding beauty. In which, member Chuu received a lot of attention because of lovely pictures of her when she went to school
Chuu has posted many photos of herself on her SNS while studying at Hanlim Art School. Those bright, radiant photos have attracted the selector. Therefore, she received an invitation to participate in the casting.
3. Ryujin (ITZY)
Right before debuting as an ITZY member, Ryujin had a certain number of fans thanks to participating in YG’s MIXNINE and winning the first prize. With her talent and beautiful appearance, she has made K-pop fans gone crazy.
Ryujin’s innocent and lovely student photos help her gain more love in the eyes of fans. She was noticed by JYP once when she attended GOT7’s fansign.
Ryujin was chosen as the center when ITZY just debuted. Her girl crush vibe is her best charm. Ryujin is the fans’ attractor of the group who has a beautiful face and harmonious lines. Her smile is also a critical point that helps her gain a lot of support from netizens.
4. Kim Min Joo (IZ*ONE)
Kim Min Joo has received a lot of compliments for her gorgeous face since she participated in Produce 48. A lot of people think that she has the beauty of many sunbaenims like Tzuyu (TWICE) and Jennie (BLACKPINK). Kim Min Joo’s visual has been outstanding since her book days, helping her get cast on the street. Looking at Min Joo’s childhood photos, fans are sure that the company really has eyes for people.
Min Joo is considered to have classic and elegant lines but also full of sharpness and charm. She is the sexy symbol of IZ*ONE. Min Joo’s visuals are only getting better and better, not disappointing fans.
