Recognized by ONCEs around the world as part of the group’s maknae line, also known as the “School Meal Club” alongside members Dahyun and Tzuyu, Chaeyoung, she shared her thoughts on her style.
“Even though I’m (one of) the youngest in TWICE and have a cute image because I debuted at a young age, I think I suit a strong image like this as well,” she said.
On breaking K-Pop stereotypes
Wanting to freely express herself, she also revealed her wish to break the unspoken rules for idols.
“Just as Kristen Stewart wore Converse shoes with her dress at the Cannes Film Festival, I also want to become someone who breaks the unspoken rules,” Chaeyoung expressed.
Sharing candidly the toxicity of stereotypes in the K-Pop scene, she then courageously bared her side by saying, “Some people think of idols as just pretty and cute people with lots of aegyo, but I want to expand that image. This image, that image, they can all be considered idols, and I think that can be expressed in different ways.”
