The idols who are the essence of their groups

Knets pointed out Kpop idols that represent their groups’ nature, but there are still controversies surounding SNSD, Red Velvet and (G)I-DLE’s representatives.

Recently, Knet had an interesting discussion related to Kpop idols that they themselves represent the nature of the group they belong to.  In a more understandable way, just by looking at this idol, we can see a part of the concept and vibe of a group. 

In order to satisfy many of the above criteria, normally these idols will take the center position, but sometimes they are simply the ‘fan-attraction’ members in the group or the person who is most remembered by the public when talking about the groups. 

Recently, the topic with the request ‘Let’s write down which members are the essence of their groups!’ has received many comments from Knets.  Let’s take a look at the names that Knets mentioned in the article related to this topic.

Besides the names that received a lot of agreement, there are also a few other groups that cause Knets to debate who is the member that represents the nature of the group and is most popular to the public.

SNSD: TAEYEON or YOONA?

Knets could not come to a decision whether to choose Taeyeon or YoonA as the idol that represents the nature of SNSD.  YoonA is the center and famous visual of SNSD.  Meanwhile, Taeyeon has an influence with the public in terms of visuals, talent and being a famous leader.  In addition, according to Gallup surveys in Korea about public awareness, Taeyeon also ranked highest in SNSD.

RED VELVET: IRENE or SEULGI?

Similarly, Knet is also very confused about whether to choose Irene or Seulgi.  Irene is the leader and number one ‘fan attraction’ of Red Velvet.  However, to represent the talented and musical nature of the group, many Knet still remember Seulgi because she is considered one of the all-rounders of 3rd generation. Some comments that Irene can only represent the visual of the group, not the essence of the group.

(G)I-DLE: SOYEON or SOOJIN?

For international fans, perhaps referring to (G)I-DLE, they will immediately think of talented leader Soyeon – who is the soul of the group.  However, with Knets, Soojin’s influence is not inferior to the leader.  Soojin may not be all-rounder like Soyeon, but attracts fans the most in (G)I-DLE. 

Are you satisfied with the names that Knet has pointed out above?  And who will you choose to represent the essence of SNSD, RED VELVET and (G)I-DLE?  Please share your opinion.
