In many traditions, people believe your name determines your success in life—and if the name “Joohyun” is anything to go by, that may be true! These five girl group idols born with the name are such stars, they’ll convince you “Joohyun” is a name reserved only for people with talent.
1. Irene (Red Velvet)
While Irene’s stage name came from the Greek goddess of peace, her real name is Bae Joo Hyun. Best known to many as Red Velvet’s leader, visual, and center, Irene is also part of all three performance lines in the group: main rapper, lead dancer, and vocalist.
2. Seohyun (Girls’ Generation)
Born Seo Joo Hyun, Girls’ Generation’s Seohyun has been a force to be reckoned with for the past 14 years. These days, she’s killing it as an actress, but she was originally known as the star girl group’s talented lead vocalist, earning a spot in vocal subunit Girls’ Generation – TTS.
3. Juhyeon (LIGHTSUM)
One of the newest idols on the block with this name is Juhyeon from LIGHTSUM, born Lee Joo Hyun. Once one of Cube Entertainment’s most famous trainees thanks to her time on The Unit, Juhyeon is both the main dance and lead vocalist of her group, juggling both with her leader position.
4. Juhyun (BlingBling)
BlingBling’s Juhyun (born Cha Joo Hyun) is another talented rookie to look out for right now. Yet another leader sharing this name, Juhyun shines on stage as BlingBling’s main rapper—and she’s also part of the vocal line.
5. Sihyun (SPICA)
Last but not least, there’s SPICA’s Sihyun. Though her legal name is now Park Si Hyun, she was formerly known as Park Joo Hyun. With 11 years of training under her belt before debuting in 2012, it’s no surprise this main rapper is so skilled.
