Red Velvet member Irene is beautiful and a great performing artist. But there's probably one thing that you didn't know about the K-Pop idol.
Among her list of many talents, she is able to endure the hottest weather at ease.
This recent fact has been a hot topic among both the South Korean media and netizens on various online communities. Red Velvet recently appeared on an interview with SBS Power FM, where the members talked about the current horrendous summer weather of South Korea.
YeRi revealed that she literally vomited recently because she couldn't take the heat. However, the members stated they discovered Irene completely indifferent to the heat as she was inside her house without the A/C on.
Irene's ability to handle the hottest weather has earned her the nickname 'Dafrican Daughter'.
But why 'Dafrica?' It's because Irene is from Daegu, South Korea. Dafrica is a play on the words Daegu and Africa.
