All About EXID’s Hyerin: Profile, Hairstyle, and Much More!

Seo Hye-rin’s Tattoos


On May 20th, EXID was spotted performing at Dankook University’s Festival event where they performed several of their past hits including “Up & Down,” “Ah Yeah,” and “Hot Pink,” as well as “Every Night.” During the event, fans noticed something new about Hyerin, other than her new hairstyle for the group’s comeback. It is said that Hyerin has a tattoo saying “mind over matter” after fans spotted it underneath her right arm. Upon closer look, it is revealed to read ‘heart/matter’ or ‘heart over matter,’ an altered proverb from ‘mind over matter.’

Seo Hye-rin’s Hairstyle Change from Short to Long

Celebrities often use their hairstyle as a way of communicating with their fans about upcoming changes in their career and lives. Often times a dramatic hairstyle is a way for them to transition into a new stage in their lives and distance themselves from the past. Because of this, many celebrities rarely break away from their signature hair. But this doesn’t apply to Hyerin, who often changes her hairstyle, in fact, the most out of all the EXID members.

Hyerin often surprises her fans by showing off her dramatic transformations in every comeback. Many netizens commented about how often she changes her hairstyle but that it still suits her well. She looks good with every hairstyle, but fans also expect she would promote more often with a natural long hair instead of bleaching her hair all the time. Though basically, there are many idols who often change their hair for every comeback they make, it doesn’t change the fact that it would damage the hair.

A lot of people think that it’s probably not her decision to always change her look dramatically. Because it depends on the concept the company is going for, hairstyles can either stay the same or change. That’s also why a lot of female idols cut their hair short because dying their hair causes damage to it so they have to cover it up with another hair color, and nobody wants to damage their hair.

It is said that Hyerin likes her hair in comfortable ponytails and funny bows when she has it long. In addition, she is characterized as the most experimental out of all the other members because it has already been dyed several times in different colors.
