Spotlight On Lapillus: The Group's Maknae, Haeun, And How She Danced Her Way To Being An Idol

The youngest member of LAPILLUS may be cute and all, but the moment she takes on the stage, she transforms into a powerful, irresistible performer

The shoot location was filled with squeals of delight when LAPILLUSmaknae, Haeun, started working her poses in front of the camera for this Metro.Style cover shoot. At 13 (she will turn 14 this November), the K-pop idol has already mastered her angles, effortlessly switching from cute to fierce. No wonder people at the shoot were instantly smitten!

Age is truly just a number for this new-idol-on-the-block. As one of the youngest K-pop stars in the Korean entertainment scene, Haeun still has a whole lot of things to discover about herself, and she’s discovering them alongside her growth as an artist. Sweet and funny, she offers comfort and laughter to her LAPILLUS eonnies. When she starts to perform onstage, however, she transforms with her powerful presence.
