Compilation of Girl Group Leaders Nicknamed by Their Habits & Looks

Though calling someone names can be an act of bullying, we call names of our best friends, family members. One of the reasons why we call others names is because we feel more intimate by doing so. 

Fans also like to call their idols by their nicknames because they feel closer to them by doing so. Also, it proves that they have a great interest in them. Some names were based purely on the looks while other names are based on their habits or an incident. However it was made, we tend to nod our head in understanding when we hear their names. 

So, are you ready to see what are some nicknames of girl group leaders of K-Pop!?

K-Pop Idol Groups: 10 Leaders and the Oldest Members

Follow the leader or the oldest member?

The usual stance is that the oldest member be the leader. This idea comes from the Korean culture’s way of thinking that you should respect your elder. Although this works out for most, we can’t guarantee that leadership comes with age. That’s why some of our favorite K-Pop groups have leaders who are no the oldest members.
