Former Idol Lea Navvab Huening Makes Her K-Pop Comeback In GOT7 Youngjae’s New “SUGAR” MV

Did you recognize her?

If you watched GOT7 Youngjae‘s new MV for the title track of his 2nd mini-album, SUGAR, you might have noticed a familiar face…

Famous siblings TXT‘s Hueningkai and Kep1er‘s Huening Bahiyyih weren’t always the only K-Pop idols in the family!

Their older sister Lea Navvab Huening actually spent three years as an active idol. She made her debut in 2017 as a member of the girl group VIVA.

Unfortunately, the group appeared to disband in 2019 without a formal statement.


Since then, Lea has been a supportive sibling to Bahiyyih and Hueningkai as they made their debuts.

She also gained a dedicated following on social media, notably 2.6m followers on TikTok. Lea always stays up-to-date on trends and frequently posts dance challenge submissions, especially whenever one of her siblings’ groups has a comeback.

With Lea’s dance skills and charisma, fans are constantly wondering if she will ever make a comeback to K-Pop.

While she may not be an active K-Pop idol right now, she has been keeping busy.

Currently, she is under the MODEL DIRECTORS agency. So, she frequently models in photoshoots.

Yet, she also works in video products, both in front and behind the camera. Lea is multitalented!

Now, she has officially made a comeback in GOT7 Youngjae’s new MV…

If you look close enough at the models sitting with Youngjae, you can spot Lea! In fact, she sat next to him in several shots.

Don’t believe us? She was also credited at the end as “Lea,” along with the rest of the models/actors.

Lea also confirmed her participation with a couple of posts on Instagram.

She shared some highlights from the MV and its shoot on both her feed and Instagram Stories…

Additionally, she revealed some behind-the-scenes shots. Clearly, working on it was just as fun as the MV itself!

She teased her followers, asking them if they had been able to spot her in Youngjae’s “SUGAR” MV. Of course, she stands out!

Seeing Lea in a K-Pop MV again has us wanting more! Earlier this year, though, she revealed the hardships of being an idol and revealed whether or not she’d re-debut.

When I was an idol, I couldn’t have my [own] things. I didn’t have my channel; I didn’t have my Instagram; I didn’t have anything for me.
