The Hankook Ilbo newspaper chose Yuna, Karina, Jang Won Young and Sullyoon as the female idols with the most outstanding visuals in the 4th generation of Kpop.
On March 22nd, the Hankook Ilbo newspaper published an article about the popularity of 4th generation girl groups in Korea. Hankook Ilbo singles out Yuna (ITZY), Sullyoon (NMIXX), Karina (aespa) and Jang Won Young (IVE) as visual representatives in 4th-generation girl groups and even calls it a visual battle.
According to Hankook Ilbo, ITZY’s Yuna is improving her position in the global market as the typical idol of the 4th generation. The 2003-born female singer recently attracted attention when participating in a series of year-end music events. Yuna’s beauty is often compared to an actress by the public. The female singer also has an admirable body with a height of 1.72m, a well-proportioned and perfect figure.
Hankook Ilbo said that Yuna‘s attractive point is her sexy and toned body thanks to many years of training as an athlete. Yuna‘s ideal image is perfected through regular practice. In particular, besides the advantage of appearance, ITZY’s maknae also has a good voice, beautiful and sharp choreography, as well as attractive performance skills.
NMIXX’s Sullyoon is currently covering Korean social networks and mass media as she constantly becomes the topic of discussion on famous Korean forums. According to Hankook Ilbo, the 2004-born female singer looks as if she came out of a comic book.
With only the teaser released before her debut, Sullyoon received many compliments for the beauty that resembles all the prettiest features of TWICE’s Tzuyu and Sana. The female singer has firmly consolidated her position in activities with the group NMIXX since her debut. “Sullyoon’s face is small enough to be covered with one hand, and she has a long neck that lights up the future,” wrote the Hankook Ilbo.
Karina is the center of aespa. When aespa hit the music industry with the debut song Black Mamba in 2020, Karina was compared to the beauty created by graphics. Her face with perfect proportions and clear lines made her famous among netizens.
SM Entertainment has sent many messages to Karina in hopes of recruiting her, showing that Karina’s visuals have stood out even before she debuted with aespa.
Jang Won Young appeared in the music industry as the center of the group IZ*ONE. Previously, the female singer won first place in the fierce competition of Mnet’s Produce 48 program. Being a middle school student at the time IZ*ONE was active, Jang Won Young attracted attention with her height, perfect body and sweet and luxurious face.
The height of over 1.7m gives Jang Won Young an advantage in wearing any outfit and fashion style. Recently, the female singer re-debuted with the group IVE, whose debut song Eleven still holds high ranks on Korean music sites.
