Everything you need to know about the 6th member of Red Velvet
We love boybands, but there’s nothing hotter than a music group conformed of girls, and if they’re South Korean, it definitely means perfection. This is the case for Red Velvet, a South Korean girl group formed by SM Entertainment in 2014. Have you ever stopped to think about how productive the early 2010s were in musical terms? Red Velvet is definitely proof of that, especially when several bands from the time no longer exist.
The band members are: Irene, Seulgi, Wendy, Joy, and Yeri, but is there a 6th member no one knows about? The group is known for their original concept of “red” & “velvet” which abstracts their two different musical styles in one term that means another thing. These girls are pure poetry. Red Velvet has released two studio albums as a band, one mini album, and the other eight singles.
Red Velvet’s most recent release was “The ReVe Festival: Finale”, which debuted at number one on the Gaon Album Chart. If you’re a fan of K-pop or just looking for some new music to listen to, be sure to check out Red Velvet! Honestly, K-pop is always quality guaranteed for the public. However, it’s also important to give special recognition to bands confirmed by feminine figures.
Is there a 6th member?
As we first mentioned, there are five members in Red Velvet! Although there’s a lot of conspiracy on the internet about the possibility of Red Velvet having an unshown 6th member. But honestly, if they do as a band, how can we know? And why would they? The truth is that if we consider producers and all the human resources needed for a band like that to succeed we’ll find more than the 6th member.
Till now, Red Velvet’s official members are five: Irene, Seulgi, Wendy, Joy, and Yeri, but what are their roles? All bands have a leader, and in this case Irene gets the role, as you might be imagining, she’s also a solo singer. Irene has released numerous singles and albums on her own as a solo artist. This happens a lot in several bands, which makes fans conspire and fear for the band’s separation.
Nonetheless, have in mind that all band members have the right to create their own material independently. Each band member probably views being part of a band as a project but not as a whole. Even BTS members have their solo projects and that doesn’t stop them from being a strong boy band. There are currently no plans for Red Velvet to sum or rest any members.
Red Velvet members
By now, we’ve clarified there’s no 6th member in Red Velvet and that Irene is undoubtedly the leader, but what about the rest? Well, know that this band is made up of multifaceted artists. Seulgi for example is known for being Red Velvet’s main dancer as well as an actress. In fact, she made her acting debut in the musical School Oz, but she decided to follow a Red path instead.
Wendy is part of the vocal line of the band, as well as a songwriter, which is vital in all bands. A number of Red Velvet’s biggest hits belong to her, such as “Rookie” & “Red Flavor”. On the other hand, Joy is one of the main vocalists in Red Velvet as well as an actress, which gives the group a lot of presence and enhances their performance. Joy also starred in the drama series The Liar & His Lover.
Last but not least, Yeri forms part of the rap line for Red Velvet and one of her main contributions to the band resides in the collaborations she gets with other K-Pop groups. SM Station & SBS’s Inkigayo show are good examples of these collaborations.
