Ruka, one of the first female Japanese idols to debut under YG Entertainment, has been captivating audiences with her incredible dancing skills and charming dimples. Officially introduced on February 9, 2023, Ruka has already made a name for herself in the music industry as a member of the Japanese girl group Shibu3 project.

With a background in hip-hop dancing, Ruka has been perfecting her craft since the tender age of six. Her dedication to dance is evident not only in her impressive performances but also in her daily life, as she often practices in her dorm during her free time. Ruka's exceptional understanding of dance and her years of experience have earned her high praise from her dance instructor, LEEJUNG, and even YG Entertainment's former CEO.

In addition to her dancing prowess, Ruka is a multilingual talent, fluent in Japanese, Korean, and English. She joined YG Entertainment in 2018 after a successful audition with DJ Khaled's "Top Off," featuring JAY Z, Future, and Beyoncé. Prior to joining YG, Ruka was under PLATINUM PRODUCTION between 2017 and 2018.

Ruka's passion for dance is matched by her dedication to maintaining a healthy lifestyle. She enjoys doing pilates regularly and has incorporated drinking milk into her daily morning routine. Ruka's talents extend beyond dancing, as she starred in Ueda Atsumi's music video for "Happy Halloween!"


Pharita, who was officially introduced as the sixth member on February 2, 2023, has quickly made a name for herself as a talented and captivating performer. As the third Thai idol to debut under YG Entertainment, Pharita is following in the footsteps of BLACKPINK's Lisa and fellow group member Chikita.

A former child model, Pharita has been in the spotlight from a young age. She attended Ruamrudee International School and won first place and the grand prize at Inter Model Thailand. Known for her photogenic appearance, YG Entertainment's former CEO even remarked that she looks like she stepped straight out of a Disney movie.

Pharita's close friendship with BLACKPINK's Lisa has undoubtedly influenced her career, as Lisa serves as her role model and the person she aspires to be like. Pharita's audition for YG Entertainment in July 2020 saw her perform BLACKPINK's "How You Like That," and she was chosen from among 1,226 applicants.

Now fluent in both Thai and English, Pharita has a unique charm that makes her increasingly intriguing to her fans. She's a huge fan of anime and loves visiting the zoo, with giraffes and birds being her favorite animals. Despite her growing fame, Pharita remains down-to-earth and genuine, even sharing that she feels awkward or nervous around cameras.

Pharita's morning routine reflects her dedication to self-care, as she ties her hair up, washes her face, and applies moisturizer, Vaseline, and eye cream. One of the significant changes she experienced when moving to South Korea was adjusting to dorm life.


Asa, who was officially introduced as the fourth member of her group on January 26, 2023, is a multi-talented artist hailing from Japan. As one of the first Japanese females to debut under YG Entertainment, she joins fellow member Ruka in breaking new ground for the company.

Born in Japan, Asa has been passionate about performing arts since her childhood. Before her debut, she gained experience in musical theater and even participated in the LADYBIRD Green Musical in 2017. Asa's talent was evident from an early age, as she first auditioned for YG Entertainment at just 12 years old with the song "Weekend Warrior."

Asa's mother, a fan of Block B's music, likely influenced her daughter's love for K-Pop. Asa performed Block B's "Very Very Good" at a dance school in Japan when she was only 7 years old. Her dedication to her craft is evident in her approach to learning new dances, as she asks numerous questions to ensure she fully understands the choreography. Leejung, their dance trainer, often praises Asa for her ability to quickly pick up new routines.

With a strong foundation in dance since Year 2, Asa has also developed other hobbies, such as cooking and skipping rope. She is a true linguist, speaking Japanese, Korean, and a bit of English. In fact, her Korean language skills are so impressive that she often jokes about being a "native speaker."


Ahyeon, who was officially introduced as the second member of her group on January 16, 2023, has been capturing the attention of fans with her striking resemblance to BLACKPINK's Jennie and her exceptional talents. Born in Toegye-dong, Chuncheon-si, Gangwon-do, South Korea, Ahyeon is a versatile performer, described by YG's Yang Hyunsuk as a "warrior with many weapons."

Ahyeon's journey in the entertainment industry began at a young age, as she attended Ara Dance Academy and later became a musical singer. Her dedication to her craft is evident in the wide range of songs she has performed for evaluations, including "Team" by Iggy Azalea, "Monster" by Justin Bieber and Shawn Mendes, "Body Language" by Kid Ink, and "Black Widow" by Iggy Azalea.

Currently attending Daeryong Middle School in Chuncheon-si, South Korea, Ahyeon is set to join Hanlim Arts High School in 2023. Her school friend Kaeun speaks highly of Ahyeon, praising her positivity, punctuality, and academic performance.

Ahyeon is not only talented in performance but also in languages. Fluent in Korean, English (which she began learning at 5 years old), and Chinese (which she started learning at 7 years old), Ahyeon's linguistic abilities are truly impressive. Fans have also noted her resemblance to LE SSERAFIM's Yunjin, former member Garam, and FIFTY FIFTY's Aran.

Having passed JYP Entertainment's and Banana Culture's auditions, Ahyeon ultimately chose to train at YG Entertainment, where she has been honing her skills for four years since her acceptance in 2018. With a brother by her side and a mindset focused on having fun without regrets, Ahyeon is undoubtedly a rising star in the K-Pop world.


Rora, who was officially unveiled as the fifth member of her group on January 30, 2023, has been making waves in the K-Pop world with her incredible talents and unwavering determination. Born in Gangneun-si, Ganwon-do, South Korea, Rora began her career as a child model and later joined the kid girl group U.SSO Girl under the name U.ha.

Rora's Chinese name is 李茶仁 (Li Charen), and she is an accomplished linguist, speaking English, Korean, and some Chinese. Her love for music is evident in her ability to play the piano, and she also participated in The 12th Yulgok Student Music Festival.

Rora's dedication to her craft can be seen in her daily routine, where she independently spends two hours on a bus after school to get to YG Entertainment. According to their dance trainer, Leejung, Rora has shown the most improvement since she started training, a testament to her hard work and commitment.

In addition to her performance skills, Rora showcased her culinary talents on the Korean cooking show Man vs Child Korea in 2018. She also has a soft spot for cats and has a penchant for black, white, and light purple colors.

Rora's first performance video, posted by YG Entertainment on January 29, 2023, quickly gained popularity, amassing 9.7 million views within a week. As an only child, Rora has worked hard to shine bright and be authentic in her performances.


Chiquita, who was officially introduced as the third member of her group on January 23, 2023, has been making a name for herself in the K-Pop world with her unique charm and exceptional talents. Hailing from Nakhon Ratchasima, Thailand, Chiquita, also known by her nickname Canny, is a multilingual artist, fluent in Thai, Korean, and English.

Chiquita's passion for performing arts is evident in her background, as she was a member of the cover group RedRose before joining her current group. She attended Sarasas Witaed Nakhonratchasima School in Nakhon Ratchasima province, further honing her skills and preparing for her future career in the entertainment industry.

As the second Thai idol under YG Entertainment after BLACKPINK's Lisa, along with fellow member Pharita, Chiquita is part of a new generation of Thai artists making waves in the K-Pop scene. She also has a strong family connection to the industry, as she is the younger sister of Copper Dechawat from The Star Idol and 789 TRAINEE.

In addition to her performance skills, Chiquita has a love for smoked quail eggs, showcasing her unique taste and personality. With her strong background in performance and her undeniable talent, Chiquita is a rising star in the K-Pop world, representing Thailand and captivating audiences around the globe.


Haram, who made history as the first member of BABYMONSTER to be unveiled, has been capturing the hearts of K-Pop fans with her incredible talent and endearing personality. With a background as a kids model, Haram has been in the entertainment industry from a young age, showcasing her natural charisma and strong work ethic.

Joining YG Entertainment in 2017, Haram has spent years honing her skills and preparing for her debut as a K-Pop star. She draws inspiration from her role model, BLACKPINK's Rosé, and strives to emulate her success and impact in the industry.

In addition to her impressive performance skills, Haram is a loving older sister to her younger brother, demonstrating her caring and nurturing nature. With her strong background in modeling and her undeniable skills as a performer, Haram is a rising star in the K-Pop world, poised to make a lasting impact on the global music scene.
