When it comes to the past few years, it seems like K-Pop has been dominated by fourth-generation girl groups. In particular, two groups that have always stood out are IVE (who debuted in 2021) and LE SSERAFIM (who debuted in 2022.)
Between the two groups, the members have always been praised for their talent, visuals, and stage presence whenever they’re performing. IVE has always wowed with their elegance and ability to capture an audience’s attention…
While LE SSERAFIM might have only debuted earlier in the year but has wowed with powerful performances and intricate choreography.
Upon the news that IVE and LE SSERAFIM will be doing a special stage for the MAMA Awards with Kep1er, NMIXX, and NewJeans, netizens couldn’t believe their luck that members of the two groups had a special appearance together.
[#2022MAMA] COLLABORATION SPOILER
— MAMA AWARDS (@MnetMAMA) November 16, 2022
On November 16, the members of IVE and LE SSERAFIM’s Sakura and Kazuha appeared in Japan for the “Kōhaku Uta Gassen” press conference.
During the press conference, the idols’ visuals and personalities shone even amongst the large number of stars, including group JO1. As soon as the event started, the members of IVE and LE SSERAFIM stood out.
Also, although IVE’s Ahn Yujin isn’t native Japanese, the idol truly captured the hearts of viewers when sharing her excitement about being part of the huge event. Even without saying anything, the other members looked flawless.
Of course, when Sakura spoke, her visuals shone as she was able to speak her native language again, as she shared her excitement and how the other three members had schedules. Even though Kazuha didn’t say anything, her modelesque visuals were undeniable.
When the pictures were released, Korean netizens couldn’t get over the visuals seen on one screen. Despite being surrounded by so many idols from both Korea and Japan, the members’ visuals truly stood out. Many even joked that they could’ve been in the same group, especially after Kazuha was spotted wearing white like IVE.
- They’re crazy… Babies are all pretty in their unique way…ㅠ It really makes no sense…
- I thought Kazuha was a member of IVEㅋㅋㅋㅋDid Sakura and Kazuha coordinate as black and white?
- All girl group members are pretty but Wonyoungie is really ㅎㅎㅎ I don’t think even anime can be drawn that pretty
- My bias in IVE is Yujin and Kazuha in LE SSERAFIM. They’re both so natural, youthful, fresh, and pretty
- Yujin is so prettyㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ I hope IVE and LE SSERAFIM all perform well at Kōhaku Uta Gassen!!!
With only a few weeks until the awards and a few months until the Japan event, it has raised anticipation to see the stage explode with visuals when the two groups join forces.
