[★TRENDING] Media specialist reveals the truth behind the popularity of Hani and Choa

EXID‘s Hani and AOA‘s Choa are two idols who have recently risen into popularity in somewhat unorthodox ways. 

The following are excerpts originally written by Jung Hee Seo of X Sports News translated by Koreaboo.

Hani gained her fame overnight through the “Up & Down” fancam craze and Choa’s popularity within her group took place as soon as she went through a drastic hair change.

It’s not enough, however, to just catch the eye of the crowd. Hani and Choa have a certain attribute that turned interested bystanders into loyal fans regardless of their gender.
