Newjeans members were the following ages at the time of their debut: Minji was 18, Danielle was 17, Hanni was 17, Haerin was 16, and Hyein was 14. Hyein debuted at the young age of 14 and she is the maknae (youngest) in NewJeans. It’s not uncommon for Kpop idols to debut at the tender age of 14, for example, Kaedan debuted in Fantasy Boys at the age of 14 and Leeseo is the maknae in IVE and she also debuted when she was 14 years old.
Minji became a trainee from a young age and is the oldest member of NewJeans but she did not become the leader since the group has no official positions. Though, it’s often seen that the second oldest usually becomes the leader. For example, Chaewon is the leader of the group Le Sserafim even though Sakura is the oldest member of the group. This pattern is often noted in groups debuting after the second-generation K-pop groups. Taeyeon from SNSD and Leeteuk from Super Junior are both second-generation K-pop idol groups and both are the oldest and leaders of their respective groups.
