DIA's Jung Chae Yeon was asked about her newfound popularity on the June 15 airing of 'Weekly Idol.' 

When MC Heechul asked her, "Do you feel your popularity these days?" Jung Chae Yeon answered shyly, "A little..." MC Defconn also threw a question at Chae Yeon, asking her, "You became known before the other members so what are you future aspirations?" Chae Yeon gave the usual textbook answer, replying, "Since I became known first, I hope that DIA as a whole will do better rather than just myself.

At Chae Yeon's hackneyed response, Heechul quipped, "That's what typical rookie idols say when they're trying to be nice," bringing laughter with his quick wit and his ability to push his guests to the point of discomfort.

Can I ask why is she popular, what is special about her?

Lary_kpop Nekochan_chan Thursday, June 16, 2016

She is beautiful. Basically that xD She is a decent performer, singer and dancer... But the popularity is based on her looks, I think.

Well she is in IOI :)

Funny how people say "Who is she? She's not even popular" LOL guys you're not the ones who get to label someone as popular or not. :) Applies to other idols and groups, too~ Apparently she's popular in Korea, well idk then let it be. :D You don't get to call people nugu or not just based from what you know, seriously~ If you don't know someone, try checking them out in Google, it's easier to search them than typing "who is she anyway." :D

What did she do to receive this immense popularity??? I don't know who she is lol :o

sototallyrandom ly3330 Wednesday, June 15, 2016

She became a lot more famous because of the attention the public gave her in Produce 101 :)

misskkot ly3330 Wednesday, June 15, 2016

you should watch produce 101

Well, of course the never ending ' Suzy look alike ' and the 'next Suzy' thing seems to work pretty well nowadays.

ly3330 sototallyrandom Thursday, June 16, 2016

ohhhhh I see ! I neever watched I only know the people who actually made it in IOI ! :)

ly3330 Paraphernalia Thursday, June 16, 2016

Suzy ??? Bae Suzy???? She looks nothing like Suzy tho..... LOL

Paraphernalia ly3330 Friday, June 17, 2016

Yup, I do not know if it is another media play but they keep dragging Suzy's name. Couldn't blame them though 'cause the most fastest way to recognize new idol is to compare them to the likes of Suzy or Yoona.

@KREVICE hey are you smoking pot

SugarFree Wednesday, June 15, 2016

The other members must hate her already.

CrazyBeautiful SugarFree Wednesday, June 15, 2016

why would they hate her - her and cathy literally put them back on the map with their pd101 popularity.

SugarFree CrazyBeautiful Wednesday, June 15, 2016

They're not really on the map though. Chaeyeon is, but they aren't. Heck, IOI got more cheers than DIA did at their own showcase.

NgohiongPuso SugarFree Wednesday, June 15, 2016

I don't the other members are as twisted as you are...

SugarFree NgohiongPuso Wednesday, June 15, 2016

You're right, they simply looked THRILLED to have their hoobaes show up on stage at their own showcase
