“The UNIT” contestant becomes a hot topic for breaking girl group stereotypes with her androgynous visuals

H.U.B’s Hyosun is breaking boundaries and creating some buzz with her new girl crush look on KBS’s idol rebooting show The Unit.

Hyosun, who is just out of high school at the young age of 19, captured the hearts of many viewers with her androgynous appearance and powerful performance.


Even the judges on The Unit couldn’t help but be in awe of Hyosun’s powerful figure, fashion choice, and dance moves.

“Just by looking at your silhouette only, I thought a fitness trainer entered the room.”

— Hwang Chi Yeol

Viewers were especially happy that Hyosun was able to showcase her talent and garner attention after she was eliminated early on in Produce 101‘s first season.

Androgyny has become an important factor of generation Y and, like f(x)’s Amber, Hyosun is on her way to proving that being pretty and cute is not the only way to succeed in the industry as a female idol.
