FFC-Acrush is one of the hottest idol groups in China, but it’s not just because of their handsome visuals; it’s because every member in this “boy group” is a girl!
Many female idol groups have dabbled in tomboy concepts, including MAMAMOO…
With the exception of f(x)’s Amber, the most famous “tomboy” in the K-Pop scene, most female idols don’t keep their androgynous concepts for very long.
In fact, boyish girl group concepts can be a hard sell. Former girl group Global Icon debuted with a tomboy concept that gained a small, dedicated following, but wasn’t well-received overall.
To appeal to a wider audience, they tried switching to a more feminine concept before eventually disbanding.
FFC-Acrush, on the other hand, has gained a large following for their on-going masculine concept.
Unlike most other girl groups, FFC-Acrush’s gender-bending concept isn’t just for a particular song or performance. It’s the entire basis for their group!
FFC-Acrush has been rocking their androgyny for a solid year now. The members sport men’s pants and shirts instead of the usual girl group tops and dresses.
All the members have very short hair, styled in a typically masculine way.
Their boyish looks have a lot to do with the way their stylists do their makeup.
Their eyebrows are thick, their eye makeup is gender-neutral, and they do not wear brightly colored lipstick.
These girls easily pass for flower boys, and redefine the meaning of “girl crush”!
When it comes to their crossdressing concept, FFC-Acrush goes the extra mile.
Not only do the members look like men…
…they also have boyish vocals!
While many typical girl groups have high, feminine voices, FFC-Acrush’s voices are much lower when they sing in songs like “Action”.
Their powerful, hip-hop choreography is also something you’d expect to see in a boy group’s video.
