IVE’s Eldest Member Gets Called Gaeul ‘Sunbae’

For this comeback, IVE Gaeul transformed her two-toned long hair into a blonde bob, and she is currently garnering attention for this change. 

DIVEs (IVE fandom) on the platform Nate shared their opinion, saying that the blonde member’s lines and parts were also the killing part of the song.

“Twice, thrice – Don’t ask me again You know what my strength is? It’s that I’m honest.”

They also shared that they are seeing the eldest member in a new light and calling her Gaeul-sunbae (Korean work for a senior at school and university).

IVE eldest member Gaeul gains attention for shot blonde hair and singing parts in their comeback song “After LIKE”.

Many of the comments are praising her part and how she delivered it perfectly.

“For real, as soon as this part came out, I focusedㅋㅋㅋ it was so good. Gaeul’s voice fits those lyrics perfectly. I also got a heart attack from this part but seems like a lot of people didㅋㅋㅋ”

Many are liking her short blonde hair. It was a shame for them that Gaeul’s screentime and parts were limited as they wanted to see more of the idol. They think they have found another hidden gem in IVE as Gaeul really stood out.
