As much as fans want to deny it, some idols are becoming adults in Korea next year! In Korea, "turning of age" or becoming adults is a bit different than in the states or other countries. In fact, in Korean culture, from the moment you are born, you are considered 1-year-old. When you reach age 19, you are legally considered an adult in Korea, which is essentially akin to the 18-year-old adulthood status in the US. Here are some idols who will officially be an adult in 2021!
