Lovelyz Kei‘s rendition of this adorable song has become a go-to aegyo performance for other idols.
Since “Gwiyomi” by Hari became a hit song made popular by BTOB‘s Ilhoon and Girls’ Generation‘s Yoona on MBC‘s Weekly Idol, another song has stepped in to take its place.
Although the song “Oppaya” or “Sweetheart” by acoustic duo SEENROOT was released almost two years ago, the tune recently gained more popularity when idols began showing off their aegyo with it.
A popular BJ on Afreeca TV, showed her aegyo with SEENROOT’s song, and the song became the latest craze overnight.
Since Kei showed her adorable charm and facial expressions with the song, Weekly Idol and other variety programs have been asking other idols to show aegyo with the song as well.
It is common for Kpop idols to show cute displays of affection, which is often expressed through a cute/baby voice, facial expressions, and gestures, in order to express their love and affection for their fans.
Idols such as WINNER‘s Mino, members of EXID, Oh My Girl, Highlight, Apink and many more, accepted the challenge and displayed their cuteness for their fans.
