7 K-Pop Maknaes That Are The Epitome Of Duality

As K-pop artists, idols go through a range of concepts and personas that may or may not coincide with their actual personalities away from the spotlight.

Some idols show a greater parity in terms of character on and off stage. On the other hand, others are completely different based on the situation they’re placed in, and sometimes this duality could vividly be spotted in the same environment without a change of scene.

In this feature, K-pop idol maknaes are put under the microscope to see which of them are the epitome of duality. Care to find out? Let’s go!

1. VICTON’s Subin

As VICTON’s maknae, Subin is both babied and picked on by his members with equal affection. Although he stated that he likes being considered cool rather than cute, the personality he usually portrays tends to be more adorable. But that doesn’t mean he can’t switch in a jiffy once his idol persona takes over!

2. ITZY’s Yuna

Since ITZY’s debut, Yuna has adopted a bubbly personality as the group’s maknae. It’s impossible to see Yuna’s infectious smile without instantly smiling in return. And yet, there is a serious side of her that shows off a completely different vibe while keeping her charms intact.

3. SHINee’s Taemin

As SHINee’s youngest, Taemin’s reputation goes from being an evil maknae toward his members to being a little ball of mush. As a performer, his aura oscillates from being a breathtaking artist to a goofy individual behind the scenes.

4. MAMAMOO’s Hwasa

Hwasa is the queen of duality on so many levels, which renders her the perfect candidate for this feature. When she’s not being an idol, the singer is relatable in so many ways being her innocent and goofy self. Once “Action!” is called, her sassy self rises and gives us a sexy version that we are never ready for but always welcoming.

5. GOT7’s Yugyeom

When you think about Yugyeom from afar, he doesn’t strike you as the type who would exhibit duality in his behavior. But if you look closely, you’ll notice that he can be both sides of a coin that read “badass” and “derp” which he effortlessly rocks at the same time.


Lisa is perhaps one of the most famous youngest idols in terms of duality. When performing, she is a fireball ready to burn everything in her surroundings. The second she retires from the stage, a fluffball greets us instead who is simply cuteness overload.

7. BTS’s Jungkook

The golden maknae is known for many talents, but perhaps his most entertaining one is the speed with which he rapidly changes from a cute bunny to someone with a gaze that’s sharp enough to kill—after all, it does take breaths away.
