When it comes to misunderstood K-Pop idols, one person that netizens always talk about is IVE‘s Jang Wonyoung.
Since debuting as part of IZ*ONE in 2018 until now, many have criticized the idol for being cold or just being a pretty face, with netizens focusing on the young star negatively.
Yet, the reality couldn’t be further from the truth. Whenever Jang Wonyoung gets on stage, she performs 100% and showcases her talent, alongside her visuals in every performance.
She also has the sweetest personality, whether it’s ensuring that she helps staff so they don’t have to do more work or helping her members if they might have forgotten which song they’re singing.
Recently, the idol has been praised for her true professionalism when it comes to balancing all of her schedules. At only 17 years old, many wouldn’t be surprised if everything Jang Wonyoung has to do becomes overwhelming… yet, the young idol is showcasing that she has a strong work ethic.
IVE recently traveled to Japan for their schedules. During their time in Japan, the group had many schedules and met with fans during their time there.

They also gained attention for their flawless visuals and charisma during a recent Japanese television appearance. In particular, Jang Wonyoung and the rest of IVE shined with their presence and made a huge impact on Japanese audiences.
After some time in Japan, some of the members returned to Korea on August 12 after a busy schedule. Despite their activities and flight, the members looked radiant, and netizens probably expected them to return home and have some time to relax.
Yet, they couldn’t have been more wrong. Alongside her activities in IVE, Jang Wonyoung is also the MC for Music Bank, alongside ENHYPEN‘s Sunghoon.
Due to her Japanese schedule, Jang Wonyoung wasn’t present at last week’s show. Even though she was probably tired, the idol headed straight from the airport and arrived for the Music Bank recording, greeting fans and the media.
The idol appeared hours later on live television with the largest smile on her face and showcasing a true idol image, despite the busy schedule and traveling she’s done.
After the show finished, netizens couldn’t stop praising Jang Wonyoung for her professionalism. Many pointed out that within the space of a few hours, the idol had arrived back from Japan, done rehearsals for the show, and then put on her MC hat without showing any weakness.
