The Advent of New 94 Line: Hyeri, Youngji and Seulgi Takes Center Stage in Kpop World


I think many of you may know well about Kpop's '94 line'. Who are they? Yes, they are popular Kpop idol stars who were born in 1994 such as Miss A's Suzy, f(x)'s Sulli and Krystal, and Kara's former member Kang Jiyoung. The girls, who show off heir close friendship even offstage, are the representative female stars who are leading Kpop industry.

However, recently, Kpop world's new 94 line members, who are also born in 1994 but have been regarded as being less popular than the original 94 line members, are performing brilliant job, catching eyes of people. They are Girl's Day's Hyeri, Kara's Youngji, and Red Velvet's Seulgi.


Girl's Day's Hyeri
On MBC's 'A Real Man', which is about popular stars who virtually joined army, Hyeri caught eyes of people by showing off her charm. Have you watched her 'Aegyo Video'? Well, all the people completely fell for her at her coquettish charm.

Hyeri has become the most wanted and sought after young Kpop star in show business, while her towering success has attracted lucrative advertising deals. She gets more than 95,000 dollars per advertisement appearance, and it is expected that she will be the next Suzy, a top female Kpop idol star who earns over 9.5 million dollars for a year.


Hyeri is absolutely contributing to the soaring popularity of Girl's Day. The girl group, who made big hits with its songs such as 'Expect' and 'Something', is continuing to make rapid strides.


Kara's Youngji
Another member of Kpop world's new 94 line is Kara's Youngji. The female idol, who became Kara's member by auditioning MBC Music's 'Kara Project - The Beginning' aired last July, is now distinguishing herself from other young Kpop idols.

Actually, Youngji heard many significant concerns voiced by people because it was uncertain if she could fill the vacancy of Nicole and Kang Jiyoung, who have left Kara in early 2014. However, by appearing on SBS' 'Roommate 2', she succeeded in removing people's concerns.

Youngji always tried to be affectionate towards her big senior Bae Jongok, a famous Korean actress who debuted in 1985, and covered Girls' Generation's 'The Boys' in front of the girl group's Yoona and Sunny, while Yoona said it's Daebak(gorgeous).

Youngji, who usually laughs her head off, never tries to play innocent around people. She is certainly adding vitamin to 8th-year Kpop idol group Kara.


Red Velvet's Seulgi
Sm entertainment's rookie girl group Red Velvet debuted last August. It has been about 5 years since the company's girl group f(x) debuted in 2009, and every move of the new girl group drew people's attention.

Well, among the 4 members of Red Velvet, Seulgi, who was also born in 1994, received great attention from people even before she debuted. As you may know, Super Junior's Kyuhyun commented about her on MBC's 'Radio Star', saying, "Seulgi is charming. Hey, Seulgi, keep up the good work. I'll cheer for you. By the way, don't be too famous."

Through her debut song 'Happiness', Seulgi showed off her cute charm, leaving a favorable impression on people. And in October, she successfully completed her transformation by showing off her mature charm through Red Velvet's new song 'Be Natural'.

Seulgi is a key person to take over great popularity of her senior idol stars such as Girls' Generation and f(x).
