6 Outgoing Idols Who Actually Used To Be Shy

It’s hard to believe they were ever shy!

It’s hard to imagine that any idol would actually be shy especially when they perform in front of thousands of people at concerts. But there are actually a number of outgoing idols who used to be very shy!


1. Girls’ Generation’s Taeyeon

It’s strange to think that Taeyeon was ever shy but during her trainee days, she was such an introvert that other members wondered if she was even in the room. Now, Taeyeon has opened up a lot. She’s done numerous solo albums, isn’t afraid to speak her mind, and she has even told other idols not to be shy!


2. SHINee’s Minho

While many people know that Taemin is super shy, people often forget that Minho was the same when the group first debuted. He was a very shy and quiet person. Somewhere along the way he started to show his outgoing nature and is now known for his extraordinary charisma!


3. Highlight’s Doojoon

While Doojoon is a social butterfly, it wasn’t always like that. He used to be an extremely shy guy who had a hard time around strangers. He even admitted that he was shy with strangers in an interview about the drama Let’s Eat. Doojoon hides his shyness very well; so much so, that it’s hard to imagine that he was ever shy to begin with!


4. EXO’s D.O.

D.O. is known for his quiet personality and he has even described himself as being shy amongst strangers. His fellow EXO members once unanimously voted that he was the shyest member. Since he has started acting, however, he’s broken out of his shell a lot. He has many friends in the business and seems much more comfortable in front of the camera.


5. GOT7’s Mark

While Mark is still known for his introverted personality, in recent years he has become much more open. Fans have noticed that he is a lot more outgoing on camera and shows more of his fun personality. Maybe it has something to do with GOT7’s huge rise in popularity.


6. Apink’s Naeun

When she first debuted, Naeun dreaded fanservice because she was so shy. People would also mistake her as cold and unapproachable due to her introverted personality. But as time has gone on Naeun has become more open and is a now complete pro at fanservice.
