[NEWS] f(x) Krystal, “SHINee’s Taemin is an one year older oppa”!

The debut of idol groups is getting faster and faster.

The recently debuted ‘Monster Amateurs’ (TL Note: They're basically calling f(x) new artists who has swiped out the music industry~) f(x) (Victoria, Krystal, Amber, Sulli, Luna) has one member born in the 1980’s while the rest were born in the 90’s. The maknae (youngest) Krystal was born in 1994 and is 16 years old (Korean age).

2NE1’s Minji and 4 Minute’s Kwon Sohyun were both born in 1994. Not too long ago, ‘High School Singers’ were in the limelight, but now it’s the ‘Junior High Singers’ turn, they go to school in the morning and in the afternoon they participate in their broadcast schedules.

One music industry official said, “When 5 member boy group, SHINee, first debuted the maknae, Taemin, was born in 1993 and was a Junior High student” also “I thought he was really young, but now he has become a full-grown oppa.”

This official said, “To Krystal, Taemin is an oppa” and the official also expressed surprise at the music industry’s debut age which is getting younger and younger.

f(x) has started full activities after their debut showcase on September 2nd. f(x) is gaining a lot of popularity with their title song ‘LA chA TA’.
