Red Velvet is a South Korean girl group formed by S.M. Entertainment. The group debuted on August 1, 2014, with their digital single “Happiness” and with four members: Irene, Seulgi, Wendy and Joy. In March 2015, fifth member Yeri was added to the group. (Wikipedia)
Upon hearing that SM was releasing another girl group next to f(x), I was shocked and at the same time, very excited. I was very fond of SM Artists, actually – an SMBaby. To think that their name, Red Velvet, was also super interesting for me. Especially when they have released teaser photos for this group I was like, “OMG they all look alike why”. However, I have grown to get familiar with their faces and besides, SM thought of a vey interesting concept to help fans remember their faces. SM assigned a color to each of the members and the members have died the ends of their hair with that color.
As Wikipedia said, Yeri has joined the group only later – it shocked me but I have also found her charms interesting.
They are a group with striking visuals and great vocals. Check out the members’ profiles below! Photo credits to the owners.
