Boy group DONGKIZ recently rebranded and changed their name to DKZ. This came with the newfound fame of member Jaechan after he starred in Semantic Error, a BL web drama. Along with the rebranding, they also gained three new members. Fans welcome Sehyun, Minkyu, and Giseok! The profile photos of the new members were revealed by their agency and swiftly started gaining attention. After a deep dive, past pictures of the members surfaced, and fans just had to ask — why did they seem to look better in real life?
Sehyun is only 22 years old this year. Before his debut, he made rounds on social media for being handsome. With flower boy looks, he gave off an ulzzang vibe.
His past photos showed off his high nose bridge and almond-shaped eyes.
He even greeted fans through video! From the video, fans began buzzing that his profile photo didn’t do him justice.

Minkyu is 21 years old. He confuses fans with how much he looks like different idols from different angles. In his profile photo, he reminded one of Kim Wooseok.
In an old selfie, he looked like SEVENTEEN‘s Mingyu.
In other photos, he reminded one of VICTON‘s Byungchan…
…and even ASTRO‘s Cha Eunwoo!
Nothing much is known about Giseok apart from his age. He is 18 this year.
While fans could not locate his pre-debut photos, they did spot him in his cameo role on Semantic Error.
After comparing their profile photos and past photos, fans began to question the skills of DKZ’s hair and makeup team.
- “Anyway, I’m looking forward to Minkyu…he seems like he will become more handsome after taking care of himself by monitoring how he looks on camera.”
- “1. looks like Kim Jaehwan.”
- “I don’t know about the others, but how they chose the profile photo for the 1st guy was too much, LOL.”
- “I think what’s more fatal is the camera lends and angle rather than their makeup. Whatever it is, the company did them dirty.”
- “Wow, how did they take such profile photos…anyway, even if you say their selfies are edited, their profile photos are too much.”
- “I like it that they look similar in image. Please come out with a good song.”
- “No, but their profile photos look like they downgraded to taking them at an ID photo booth at the subway station. LOL”
- “Minkyu reminds me a little of SEVENTEEN’s Mingyu.
It is hard to tell what the new members will look like on stage with such photos. DKZ will be making a comeback soon in April.
