You must probably already know about her by now, seeing how popular she has gotten, but why not look together at some of the reasons why Jang Wonyoung deserves her title as the rising IT GIRL of K-pop? Here is everything you need to know about Wonyoung and her brilliant career.

Who is Jang Wonyoung and why do we love her?

1. Her talent

Jang Wonyoung first appeared as the youngest contestant in the famous Korean survival shows Produce48, and people could already tell she was born to shine. The then 13-year-old trainee immediately stole people’s hearts with her unique charms and talent and never took a break. 

She is consistently praised for her incredible singing and dancing skills and stage presence. She has already proved it by ranking first place at the show's end, allowing her to later debut as a member of the girl group IZ*ONE in October 2018. 

She eventually re-debuted in December 2021 as a member of IVE, where she is now shining at her brightest. Her fans are absolutely in love with her beautiful voice and skillful dance moves and always let her know they are here for the long run through their passion and firm support.

2. Her lovely personality

Her impressive skills can also be found as one of the loveliest personalities in the industry. With her bubbly and positive attitude, IVE Wonyoung never fails to brighten up her fans' world and put a smile on everyone's face. 

She is also widely praised by brands she worked with, such as the famous Korean cosmetics brand Innisfree, who greatly appreciate her genuine personality and the image the idol reflects. That being said, how could we not fall for her?

3. Her stunning visuals and sense of style

She is talented, kind, and vibrant. This must probably be it. Wrong! How could we talk about Jang Wonyoung without mentioning her gorgeous looks? She sure has the brains, but not only. 

Our rising star is also known for her natural beauty and incredible sense of fashion. With her natural charms and confidence, no wonder why she’s been one of the hottest demands in the advertising industry! 

4. Her hard-working attitude

Being the center of one’s group and consistently put under the spotlight could easily go to one’s head and have them quickly feel a little too comfortable, but none of that for our lovely Wonyoung! The young idol doesn’t just rest on her laurels but is consistently improving herself and her work. 

She is constantly pouring everything into her art, and her fans can feel it through each of her content. Her determined mind and energetic behavior clearly mark her motivation and passion for what she does; we love seeing them.


Jang Wonyoung is undoubtedly one of the most popular K-idols of the moment; it all just makes sense. From her incredible talent to how her personality shines, there is nothing she lacks. She is young, kind, and pretty and has a bright future ahead of her. 

We will anticipate seeing more as she advances toward a great career. You are off to a great start Jang Won Young; we’ll keep rooting for you!
