Seoyu, the charismatic leader of the duo, brings a wealth of experience to the table. Born on December 17, 1990, she has always showcased an unyielding passion for the industry, with favorite artists such as BoA, HyunA, Chungha, and Sunmi playing a pivotal role in shaping her artistic flair. Notably proficient in English and a valedictorian of her class, she promises to be a force to reckon with in the industry.
On the other hand, the duo’s maknae, Yeseo, intertwines her love for music with her academic pursuits, majoring in Political Science and Diplomacy. Born on September 24, 1992, Yeseo is a testament to the fact that it’s never too late to follow your dreams, having bravely battled depression in 2021 and now standing on the cusp of her debut. Her story inspires and resonates with many, further endearing her to the fans.
Fans are eager for the release, hailing the duo as a much-needed breath of fresh air in the industry. Their refreshing take on the idol persona, coupled with their mature experiences, provides a stark contrast to the otherwise youth-centric industry, painting a broader picture of diversity in the K-Pop scene.
