How Old Are the IVE Members?

E is one of the most popular groups in the fourth generation of K-pop, alongside groups like NewJeans and Le Sserafim. If you are wondering how old the individual members of IVE are, here are the birthdays and ages of Gaeul, Yujin, Rei, Wonyoung, Liz, and Leeseo.

How Old Explained: Age & Birthday for Each of the IVE Members

  • Gaeul was born on September 24, 2002, and is 21 years old.
  • Yujin was born on September 1, 2003, and is 20 years old.
  • Rei was born on February 3, 2004, and is 20 years old.
  • Wonyoung was born on August 31, 2004, and is 19 years old.
  • Liz was born on November 21, 2004, and is 19 years old.
  • Leeseo was born on February 21, 2007, and is 17 years old.

With this information, at the time that IVE debuted back in December 2021, we can see that their ages were as follows: Gaeul was 19, Yujin was 18, Rei was 17, Wonyoung was 17, Liz was 17, and Leeseo was 14. Leeseo is clearly the maknae (“youngest person in the group”) of IVE, as it’s awfully rare for an idol to debut in a K-pop group any younger than age 14. There are several notable idols who debuted at age 14, though, including Jiyoung in KARA in 2008, Yeojin in Loona in 2017, and Hyein in NewJeans in 2022.

Although Gaeul is the oldest member of IVE, she is not the leader of the group. Yujin is the leader. Yujin and Wonyoung already enjoyed popularity in K-pop prior to the debut of IVE because they were both members of the limited-time group Iz*One, which was created through the Mnet reality competition show Produce 48. Iz*One was active between October 29, 2018, and April 29, 2021, so at the time of that group’s debut, Yujin was 15 years old, and Wonyoung herself was 14 years old.

Who Is the Youngest Member of IVE?

The youngest member of IVE is Leeso, who, born on February 21, 2007, is 17 years old. She joined the group at the surprisingly young age of 14 and was the last member of the group to be revealed (Starship Entertainment revealed one a day).

Who Is the Oldest Member of IVE?

Gaeul was born on September 24, 2002, and so, at 21 years old, is the oldest member of IVE. She was the second member of the group to be revealed. Unlike Yujin and Wonyoung, IVE is the first K-Pop group Gaeul has been a member of.

And that’s everything you need to know about how old the members of IVE are.
