When other K-pop groups zig, SM Entertainment’s Red Velvet zags. The girl group is regularly referred to as “concept queens” because they can’t be pigeonholed into one particular sound or visual. The group enjoys just doing a little of everything, and even if someone doesn’t love their entire discography, they would almost certainly enjoy some of it. Red Velvet debuted on August 4, 2014 with the single “Happiness” as four members, but they added Yeri as a fifth member for the release of their first mini-album, Ice Cream Cake, which was released on March 17, 2015. That was quite a while ago though, so to learn how old the Red Velvet members are now, here is the age and birthday for Irene, Seulgi, Wendy, Joy, and Yeri.
Age and Birthday for Red Velvet Members Irene, Seulgi, Wendy, Joy, and Yeri: How Old Explained
- Irene is 32 years old and was born on March 29, 1991.
- Seulgi is 29 years old and was born on February 10, 1994.
- Wendy is 29 years old and was born on February 21, 1994.
- Joy is 27 years old and was born on September 3, 1996.
- Yeri is 24 years old and was born on March 5, 1999.
In turn, when the original four Red Velvet members debuted back in 2014, they were the following ages: Irene was 23, Seulgi was 20, Wendy was 20, and Joy was 17. Meanwhile, when Yeri debuted in March 2015, she was 16. When Yeri joined the group, she became the maknae, meaning she is the youngest member. And incidentally, although she was not part of Red Velvet for “Happiness,” she still appeared in the beginning of its music video as a trainee!
Irene is the oldest member of the group and also its leader. She is often hailed as the most famous visual of third-generation K-pop girl groups, akin to how Karina from Aespa and Wonyoung from IVE are renowned for their visuals among fourth-generation girl groups.
