… to veteran Korean rapper Jessi jamming to “Hype Boy” and “Attention,” NewJeans’ music had an undeniable hold on the industry and still does over half a year later.

A legendary first-generation K-Pop idol and actress recently took part in the trend and blew netizens away with her performance. 

S.E.S was one of K-Pop’s first girl groups, and they were formed under SM Entertainment. The group debuted as SM Entertainment’s first girl group in 1997 after the massive success of the company’s first boy group, H.O.T.

S.E.S’s Eugene quickly rose as a representative visual of K-Pop’s first generation alongside fellow legends such as Fin.K.L‘s Lee Hyori and Baby V.O.X‘s Kan Miyoun.

Eugene was, and still is, known for her beauty and continues to stun netizens with her talent and unaging visuals.

Eugene recently hosted a fan meeting on February 25 (KST) and delighted fans by joining the “Hype Boy” dance challenge.

The cover took netizens back to the 90s as they questioned if time had actually passed since S.E.S ruled the stage with Eugene’s impressive skills.

Her cover quickly went viral on a popular Korean online community board, where netizens shared their impressed reactions to the OG idol group member.

  • Daebak… This makes my heart race. LOL.”
  • “Wow, how is this even possible? It’s a dream come true.”
  • “Whoa… She’s adorable. How lovely!”
  • “My goodness. She still has her moves and expressiveness… She hasn’t changed at all since her S.E.S days. This is one of the best Hype Boy covers I’ve seen thus far. CRAZY good.”
  • “Makes sense she used to be a part of SM Entertainment. She’s really good! Haha. She’s even better than NewJeans.”
