Ever heard of “the face completes the fashion”? If you fit this description, we’re pretty sure you could wear a garbage bag and still manage to make it look like this season’s Gucci. Korean netizens have been fawning over expensive-looking idols, and in particular, these 4 girl group members that look as precious as princesses.
1. Lia of ITZY
Lia’s known for her adorable eye-smile and charisma on stage. But did you know she was rich pre-debut?
A famous anecdote from her pre-debut ask.fm was that upon being asked which school she wanted to go to, Lia was weighing her options between going to college in the U.S or the U.K. As studying abroad is considered a huge privilege with large monetary costs, Lia not having to worry about tuition fees speaks volumes.
She was attending a collegiate international school in Jeju island prior to starting life as a trainee.
Who knew she would end up choosing between SM Entertainment and JYP Entertainment instead?
2. Minnie from (G)I-DLE
While various rumors about just how rich Minnie’s family is has been swirling on the internet, only one of them is confirmed.
Her uncle is Nat Yontararak, one of Thailand’s most celebrated musicians.
She also attended the Wattana Wittaya Academy before moving to Korea to pursue her dreams. As one of Thailand’s first boarding schools for girls, it runs on an international curriculum.
From the high tuition fees, it is inferred than Minnie comes from an above-average family at the very least.
3. Mina from TWICE
Mina’s pedigreed family background is a famous one. Her father Akira Myoui, is a top surgeon at one of Osaka’s best hospitals.
This financial leeway let her pursue her dreams of being a ballerina as well as sent her to a prestigious all-girls prep school in Japan.
Eventually, she was casted in the streets and entered JYP Entertainment as a trainee. Looks like it was written in the stars for her to become famous.
4. Jennie from BLACKPINK
Jennie put it best when she sang the line “if we’re going to talk about my popularity, I’m not going to do it – my mouth will only hurt” in “Pretty Savage”. Her family fortune and expensive looks are always the talk of town.
Although it has never been officially confirmed what her parents actually do for a living despite many rumors and speculations, there’s no doubt she came from a well-off family.
From being born and bred in Chungdamdong, one of Seoul’s most expensive districts, to being sent off to New Zealand for studies on a whim.
Jennie was also seen in a Porsche, her family’s personal car, and carrying multiple vintage Chanel items she claims were from her mom’s closet. A rich princess indeed!
Despite all of their comfortable upbringings, being a K-Pop idols is unbearably harsh during training. Hats off to these girls for making their mark in the world by their own blood, sweat and tears!
