6 Female K-Pop idols to turn to when you need a boost of confidence


In recent years, K-Pop has grown to become a global cultural phenomenon in every sense of the word. With its rising popularity, the artists that make up the Korean music scene are inspiring young and aspiring artists worldwide to chase their dreams. In addition, K-Pop idols are also highly influential role models for the next generation of the world. 

Here are 6 female K-Pop idols/soloists that you can turn to when you need a boost of confidence!


2021 was truly the year of LOVELYZ's Mijoo, where she gained love, support, and popularity from all over the world. However, she has been iconic ever since her debut, and it is about time that the world catches up. If you need inspiration on how to be unapologetically you, Mijoo would be your perfect guide.


It is no surprise that Jessi would be on this list. She is the very representation of confidence, rebellion against the norm, self-love, and boss behavior. Jessi is the older sister figure that a lot of the younger generation, both in Korea and overseas, look up to. 

Red Velvet Joy

Joy is so confident in her own skin and talent that there is nothing in the world that could shake her conviction. She does not care about what the world thinks of her and instead creates her own world. Without a doubt, she is the role model we need and deserve.

(G)I-DLE Shuhua

Shuhua has always been assertive and outspoken in calling out the wrongs that often surround the K-Pop industry, such as toxic fan culture, hate comments, and more. Shuhua has shown time and time again that no one gets to treat her or anyone around her with disrespect. Her confidence is both inspirational and infectious. 


The OG queen of K-Pop, HyunA's musical journey, and evolution are one for the K-Pop history books. From fearlessly trying new things to finding her own signature style, HyunA is nothing short of a legend. All this was possible because she believed in herself and her vision beyond anything else with confidence. She's truly someone to look up to.


Finally, this list wouldn't be complete without the K-Pop group that revolutionized K-Pop in more ways than one, MAMAMOO. To pick one member from the group to represent confidence would be a disservice to the absolute unit that the group is as a whole when it comes to the trait. MAMAMOO's discography will convince you that you rule the world, and that is exactly what one needs sometimes. 

  1. Shuhua
  2. (Mijoo) Lee Mi Joo
  3. (Jessica H.o.) Jessi
  5. Joy
  6. HyunA

I'm going to try to write this with a translator because I don't know English. I've been in K-pop for years, (when I was finishing the second generation) I was very adolescent back then and my obsession with being thin like the idols I saw completely consumed me, I stopped eating and tried to follow the diets they said. Also seeing how they admired them for that did not help me and also came from a complicated family context (It would be hypocritical to say that my eating disorder is all the fault of K-pop, but I do think it helped to enhance certain thoughts that I had in mind) to the point of being very skinny and weakened, I had a very bad time. But I can say that the mental click I needed to seek help I found in Mamamoo, especially in Hwasa. Seeing her so queen, so she mistress of herself gave me confidence to begin to accept my defects. Over time I was able to treat myself, I am still in treatment but I am already at a healthy weight and much happier. I don't follow K-pop as much as I used to but I will always carry Mamamoo in my heart, because they were very important to me. And today seeing the four members in this top makes me proud because I really believe in their power and their confidence, I have experienced it.

I love how honest and natural mamamoo is that you can feel and see in their music that they are really confident and empowered women.
