Celebrity – Back again, Yujin and Wonyoung IVE became a conversation among netizens.
This time, netizens are wondering whether behind the scenes there is a rivalry or feud between the two IVE members.
Both on YouTube and online community forums, the topic of rivalry arose between two IVE members, Wonyoung and Yujin.
As two former IZONE members, Wonyoung and Yujin recently became permanent members of group IVE with Yujin as the leader.
According to netizens’ posts, Wonyoung IVE’s recent comments made in a video from their official YouTube channel raised several questions.
IVE’s Wonyoung said, “At first, I thought, (Yujin) unnie was the leader?” and it was interpreted by another YouTube channel that Wonyoung didn’t think of Yujin as someone with leadership potential.
With additional footage of Wonyoung allegedly “glaring” at Yujin in the past, the video uploader compiles a brief moment of the two IVE members sharing uncertain moments as interpreted by the creators.
Especially since Wonyoung has taken the center position during his IZONE days, the potential shift in dynamics between them since IVE’s debut seems to have created room for controversial reading.
However, IVE fans defended the two and withheld the accusations. They explained that IVE’s Wonyoung always “takes good care of Yujin” as a dongsaeng.
The only reason why IVE’s Wonyoung made that comment is because they are both part of the ‘maknae line’ in IZONE, and anyone would find it strange to see a fellow young member suddenly become a leader.
Other fans also shared screenshots of their Bubble conversation with fans, how IVE’s Wonyoung expressed his disbelief towards Yujin officially becoming an adult.
Regarding this fact, Yujin IVE also shared on Bubble, “Wonyoung kept saying how he couldn’t believe I was twenty years old. He said it felt like a hidden camera joke. But doesn’t unnie usually say that [kepada dongsaeng mereka]? thought that I was a babyㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ.”
On the other hand, On January 23, 2022, IVE successfully won their 11th first place music show trophy on SBS “Inkigayo” for their debut single, ELEVEN.
On January 17, 2022, Cosmopolitan Korea announced that IVE is their cover girl for the February 2022 issue.
The cover and pictorial photos were shared online today. In addition, part of the IVE interview with the publication was also shared online.
Previously, on January 14, 2022, KPop Radar announced IVE as “Artist of the Month” because the music video for ELEVEN has been viewed more than 50 million times.***
