While K-Pop is filled with plenty of young talent, there are some who defied the average debut age of 18 to 20 years and entered the industry "late" in the game.  Of course they were still young at the time, but not by K-Pop standards!

Today's idols may be fresh faces, and practically came out of the womb overflowing with K-Pop talent, but others took their raw talent and turned it into a shining gem after countless years of training. Check out some of the admirable idols in the list below who remind you it's never too late to chase your dreams!

    Other than the poor math Jung Ah "re-debut" in 2009 with After School, she actually originally debut in a group called Kis FIVE in 2005 so she would have been 22 at the time, so much for research!
