Each generation of K-Pop is bound to have a few idols that stand out to the public as the visuals of the generation. We had S.E.S‘s Eugene for the first generation, Girls’ Generation‘s YoonA for the second, BLACKPINK‘s Jisoo and TWICE‘s Tzuyu for the third generation and more! This does not mean that the other idols aren’t gorgeous, it just means that these are the few that have seen public popularity and acknowledgement as a visual representative of the group. While nicknames like “goddess” used to be popular to refer to these visuals, the 4th generation of visuals are so individually unique that the public has gifted them with vastly different nicknames.
As generations shift, the current generation of fans love faces with a little bit more character and uniqueness to them. As a result, these 4th generation girl group visuals all have different nicknames from the Korean public. Read on to find out what they are.
1. “Queenka” Yuna (ITZY)
Whew, we haven’t heard the term “Queenka” in awhile! Queenka stands for “Queen Card” in Korean, meaning the Queen bee! It’s used to refer to the most popular girl in school. Yuna’s a perfect fit for the high teen genre, making this a great nickname for her.
2. “Princess” Wonyoung (IVE)
Wonyoung’s delicate and feminine visuals make her the perfect princess. Her girly styling and flowing locks also contribute to the image.
3. “Fairy” Sullyoon (NMIXX)
A new one on the list, Sullyoon has only just debuted so fans are debuting between the nicknames “fairy”, “angel” or “pixie”.
4. “CG” Karina (aespa)
She was famed to look better than her AI counterpart! With golden proportions and a symmetrical face, she definitely looks to good to be real.
5. “SIMS” Yoon (STAYC)
A pun on her last name “Shim” and the computer game SIMS, she gained the nickname for looking so pretty that she looked graphic.
Did you know about all of these nicknames? It’s amazing how all of them are so beautiful, yet look so unique.
