After 2PM‘s Taecyeon found out this little piece of information about JYP Entertainment‘s new girl group, ITZY, he was in complete shock.
On February 24, Taecyeon shared an image of ITZY’s dancing and wrote, “The leader of this group is 12 younger than me lolololololol.”

While Taecyeon was born on December 27, 1988 (30 years in American age), ITZY’s leader, Yeji, was born on May 26, 2000 (18 years in American age), which gives them a 12 year gap indeed!
The other members of ITZY are all younger than Yeji with Lia being born on July 21, 2000 (18 years old), Ryujin on April 17, 2001 (17 years old), Chaeryeong on June 5, 2001 (17 years old) and the maknae Yuna on December 9, 2003 (15 years old).
And although Taecyeon is 15 years older than ITZY’s maknae, Yuna, Taecyeon’s visuals are still as stunning as ever.
Fans have also been mentioning that he will forever remain the best in their hearts and praising him for being the best senior.
