This Boy Group is Actually a Girl Group

FFC-Acrush redefines “girl crush”.

FFC-Acrush is one of the hottest idol groups in China, but it’s not just because of their handsome visuals; it’s because every member in this “boy group” is a girl!

Many female idol groups have dabbled in tomboy concepts, including MAMAMOO

Girls’ Generation

 

…and f(x).

With the exception of f(x)’s Amber, the most famous “tomboy” in the K-Pop scene, most female idols don’t keep their androgynous concepts for very long.

 

In fact, boyish girl group concepts can be a hard sell. Former girl group Global Icon debuted with a tomboy concept that gained a small, dedicated following, but wasn’t well-received overall.

To appeal to a wider audience, they tried switching to a more feminine concept before eventually disbanding.

FFC-Acrush, on the other hand, has gained a large following for their on-going masculine concept.

 

Unlike most other girl groups, FFC-Acrush’s gender-bending concept isn’t just for a particular song or performance. It’s the entire basis for their group!

FFC-Acrush has been rocking their androgyny for a solid year now. The members sport men’s pants and shirts instead of the usual girl group tops and dresses.

陆柯燃 (Lu Ke Ran)

 

All the members have very short hair, styled in a typically masculine way.

彭兮辰 (Peng Xi Chen)

 

Their boyish looks have a lot to do with the way their stylists do their makeup.

林凡 (Lin Fan)

 

Their eyebrows are thick, their eye makeup is gender-neutral, and they do not wear brightly colored lipstick.

安俊浠 (An Jun Xi)

 

These girls easily pass for flower boys, and redefine the meaning of “girl crush”!

閔俊千 (Min Jun Qian)

 

When it comes to their crossdressing concept, FFC-Acrush goes the extra mile.

 

Not only do the members look like men…

…they also have boyish vocals!

While many typical girl groups have high, feminine voices, FFC-Acrush’s voices are much lower when they sing in songs like “Action”.

 

Their powerful, hip-hop choreography is also something you’d expect to see in a boy group’s video.
