We all remember when Jessi dropped her song “Ssenunni”, or 쎈언니 literally meaning a “strong sis”. Since then, this term “ssenunni” – or “unnie” (언니) in general – has become somewhat of a title for female stars who pull off the “girl crush” concept well and for those who are charismatic AF! Here are 8 K-Pop female idols whose glances will, regardless of their actual ages, make you blurt out “That’s my unnie.”
1. Red Velvet’s Seulgi
Fans know Red Velvet‘s Seulgi is actually only a softie bear disguised as a savage K-Pop idol, but that doesn’t change the fact that most of the time, especially on stage, Seulgi looks like she could kick some serious butt.
2. ITZY’s Yeji
ITZY‘s Yeji is a rising star in the list of K-Pop’s fiercest looking female idols. With her unique face and some of the most powerful dance moves the industry has seen, Yeji is definitely an unnie – and a super hot one at that.
3. MAMAMOO’s Hwasa
MAMAMOO‘s Hwasa has the cutest personality, well known from her appearance on I Live Alone and other TV shows, but she usually looks like a tigress who is ready to hunt. Most fans would agree that Hwasa is the type of unnie they’d want when they’re out to grab drinks.
4. EXID’s LE
EXID‘s LE has such a unique voice that fans could never forget. And it is with this voice, fans agreed, that LE would “unnie” her way into their hearts. Even when LE is being cute, there is something savagely charismatic about her!
HyunA, though her actual personality has proven to be wholesomely UWU, has long been on the list of K-Pop’s most charismatic idols. Since her debut days, HyunA has been a queen of her iconic sassy attitude and no-f*cks-given kind of vibe. It is this very energy that makes her one of the fiercest unnies out there to ever exist.
6. Cosmic Girls’ Seola
Cosmic Girls‘ Seola is actually better known to be the “cute one” from the group. With her charming visuals, fans wouldn’t expect otherwise from Seola. But when on stage, Seola’s aura goes from softie to baddie in a split second. Seola would likely be the type of unnie who would smile while unmercifully kicking ass.
7. Dreamcatcher’s Siyeon
Dreamcatcher‘s Siyeon is already famous for her super charismatic, almost intimidating visual. She looks like she’d breathe fire – and this level of spicy is what makes her 200% unnie material. Fans don’t dare argue; they definitely want this unnie on their side.
8. And Queen Jessi Herself
What more is there to say? Jessi is the very epitome of “unnie” and a strong one at that. And fans are most definitely in love with the way Jessi looks like she wouldn’t spare a single soul that messes with her and her squad. If there’s a ssenunni throne for the baddest but bestest unnie, Jessi would already be sitting on it.
