The fourth generation of K-pop could have easily been dominated by “Big 4” groups, especially when it feels like HYBE and its subsidiaries were almost working in overtime to produce big groups like Enhypen, Le Sserafim, and NewJeans. However, Starship Entertainment put the kibosh to all of that with K-pop girl group IVE, who enjoy fantastic popularity and far surpassed one million copies sold of their first full studio album. IVE originally debuted on December 1, 2021 with the single album Eleven and the same-named debut song, “Eleven.” It’s been a while since then, so to learn exactly how old the IVE members are now and also back at debut, here is the current age and birthday for Gaeul, Yujin, Rei, Wonyoung, Liz, and Leeseo.
How Old Are They: Age and Birthday for IVE Members Gaeul, Yujin, Rei, Wonyoung, Liz, & Leeseo
- Gaeul is 21 years old and was born on September 24, 2002.
- Yujin is 20 years old and was born on September 1, 2003.
- Rei is 19 years old and was born on February 3, 2004.
- Wonyoung is 19 years old and was born on August 31, 2004.
- Liz is 19 years old and was born on November 21, 2004.
- Leeseo is 16 years old and was born on February 21, 2007.
Looking back then at the time that IVE debuted in December 2021, they were the following ages: Gaeul was 19, Yujin was 18, Rei was 17, Wonyoung was 17, Liz was 17, and Leeseo was 14. As we regularly note around here, age 14 is often the youngest age that anyone will debut in K-pop, as seen with Jiyoung in KARA, Dahyun in Rocket Punch, and Hyein in NewJeans, among other examples. That makes Leeseo the maknae, meaning she is the youngest member of IVE.
Meanwhile, Gaeul is the oldest member of the group, but it’s the next oldest member, Yujin, who is the leader of IVE. It probably has to do with the fact that members Yujin and Wonyoung had already previously debuted as part of the limited-time group Iz*One that had been created by the reality survival competition Produce 48. Iz*One were hugely popular for the time they were active between October 29, 2018 and April 29, 2021, and when that group debuted, Yujin was age 15 and Wonyoung was age 14.
