Compilation Of Girl Idols’ Age At The Time Of Their Debut 2021 Edition

If you’ve followed the K-Pop scene for a while, then you know that many idols debut at a very young age. Some debut as young as 14 or 15 years old. Though the normal debut age is around 17 to 20 years old.

These days, it is starting to become more common to debut at a later age, many idols have debuted when they were in their early to mid-20s. There isn’t a set criterion for their age, so let’s explore an updated version of girl idols’ age at the time of their debuts!

 

HyunA is best known for her position as the main dancer and the main rapper of the, now disbanded, girl group 4Minute. However, she had already debuted before 4minute was formed. HyunA first debuted with the Wonder Girls, then left to debut with 4minute.

This list definitely shows that there is no set debut age in K-Pop, it all depends on skill level and the company’s situation. Obviously being younger when debuting leaves the opportunity to have a long career, but it doesn’t mean anyone who’s a little older can’t make it! It just goes to show that you should never give up on your dream because you never know when a new door could open!

 

Did you know the age of all these idols? Was there someone you wished you could have seen on this list?
