It can be genuinely difficult to keep up with how many new K-pop groups debut each year, so some companies shrewdly choose to let the fans watch their trainees on their lengthy journey to debut. Such was the case with C-JeS Studios and “Made in Cjes,” or “M.I.C,” its public-facing trainee program that let the trainees garner a fandom years before they had even debuted. Now, the boys in M.I.C. are WHIB (a combination of “white” and “black”), and they are here to take over. WHIB debuted on November 8, 2023 with the single album Cut-Out and dual singles “DIZZY” and “BANG!” To learn exactly how old each of the WHIB members are, here is the current age and birthday for Haseung, Jinbeom, Jayder, UGeon, Leejeong, Jaeha, Inhong, and Wonjun.
How Old the WHIB Members Are Explained: Current Age & Birthday
- Haseung is 24 years old and was born on July 16, 1999.
- Jinbeom is 21 years old and was born on April 16, 2002.
- Jayder is 20 years old and was born on December 31, 2002.
- UGeon is 20 years old and was born on May 26, 2003.

- Wonjun is 18 years old and was born on October 26, 2005.
All the members of WHIB except for Wonjun were originally known as M.I.C. trainees, and they had trained under their normal names: Haseung was Taewoo, Jayder was Junmin, UGeon was Seungyong, and Jaeha was Jaehyon. The M.I.C. trainees’ birthdays had been revealed during their long training period, but Wonjun’s birthday was not confirmed for the public until WHIB opened a Weverse.
Wonjun is the maknae of WHIB. Haseung is the oldest member by about three years, and age 24 is a rather late age to debut by the standards of K-pop. Although, this does happen on occasion, as seen with BM and J.seph in KARD. This being said, it is actually Jayder who is the leader of WHIB. Also, by incredible coincidence, two members of WHIB were born on the exact same day as two members of HYBE group Katseye.
