K-Pop groups usually have members who all range in different ages, some groups have smaller age gaps between the members than others. There’s always a maknae of the group or the youngest member in terms of age.
There are some groups who have members who actually look younger than the maknaes and may get confused as the maknae. Here are 10 idols who look like the maknaes of their group, but actually aren’t.
1. Nako (IZ*ONE)
Many might confuse Nako as the maknae due to her adorable height and features.
The actual maknae of IZ*ONE is Wonyoung, who doesn’t look like it because of her tall and mature appearance.
2. Woozi (SEVENTEEN)
Similar to Nako, Woozi looks like the youngest member due to his cute appearance.
However, Dino is actually the youngest member of SEVENTEEN.
3. Xiumin (EXO)
Xiumin is actually the oldest member of EXO but definitely doesn’t look like it with his cute features, such as his cheeks.
The youngest member of EXO is actually Sehun, but he doesn’t look like it because of his mature and sharp features.
