With new groups and artists breaking into the Korean music industry every year, it seems as though the average age of idols may be getting younger.
However, there are some idols that just seem to look young despite their age and experience in the industry. A few idols gained attention when they debuted for looking many years than their actual age. 2NE1‘s Sandara Park and EXO‘s Xiumin are both well-known for their very young appearance, despite being one of the oldest members of their respective groups.
