Who’s in NewJeans? Every NewJeans member and their ages

All you need to know about HYBE’s new girl group.

On July 22, 2022, HYBE finally unveiled a new girl group. NewJeans is a quintet and the first act run by the company’s independent label ADOR (All Doors One Room) and put together by CEO and head producer Min Hee-Jin. Their concept, members, and name were all kept secret prior to the release of “Attention,” the group’s first single. There weren’t even any teasers. And that was all part of the strategy.

With NewJeans (뉴진스), ADOR bet on the revival of the early 2000s. The group’s style and sound strongly resemble what was popular back then, which is sure to please the more nostalgic pop and R&B fans. Their debut EP, which officially marks the date of their debut, comes out on August 1, 2022.

The five girls are all teenagers born between 2004 and 2008. They are: Danielle, Haerin, Hanni, Hyein, and Minji. If you want to know more about who is who, as well as their ages and their home towns, keep reading.
