A successful K-Pop group is made up of many elements but two are absolutely essential — a leader and a maknae. We already covered the top 10 K-Pop leaders so it’s the maknae’s turn this time!
MTV K’s dictionary definition of a maknae is “the youngest member in a group.” They’re expected to have perfect skin (being the youngest and all), lots of aegyo and a lovable personality. There are those who fit that mold and then there are the rebels. You know who I’m talking about.
Vote for your favorite maknae in the poll at MTVK!
