The Red Velvet Identification Test

Many k-pop fans are excited about the potential shown by Red Velvet, SM's newest girl group.  Many of them are also very confused, and have been asking Kpopalypse the following question:

Never one to let down the k-pop fan community, Kpopalypse is here to help you in your important quest for k-pop knowledge!

I'm not just making this shit up, by the way.  People really are confused by this shit.  A simple Google search while researching this topic revealed that the general k-pop fan population is confused as a motherfuck about which Red Velvet member is which at any given moment.

As you can see by the last result, there's speculation that the Red Velvet members may have gotten prettier, and that this may be the cause of the confusion.  If you're someone struggling to become a k-pop idol and you're looking at your options for becoming prettier, you basically have two choices:
  1. Get famous, then become prettier while you are under the public eye, with all the gossip and scrutiny this entails
  2. Get prettier during your training period when you are safely locked in the dungeon and cameras aren't looking at you
It makes sense to choose the second option, however it could also be the case that SM Entertainment just scouted for a bunch of girls with the same look in the first place.  Either way, there's no doubting that the girls in Red Velvet do look strikingly similar, for whatever reason.

Let's introduce the Red Velvet members one by one so we can help better differentiate them.

JOY

Here's Joy.  Joy is from Red Velvet.  Her hair has been colour-coded GREEN by SM Entertainment for easy identification purposes, because they knew that you would have trouble with this shit without some help.  She has a pretty face, a cute smile (when she's smiling), long hair and big brown eyes.  Remember these distinctive features.

IRENE

SEULGI

Here's Seulgi.  Seulgi is from Red Velvet.  Her hair has been colour-coded ORANGE/YELLOW by SM Entertainment for easy identification purposes, because they knew that you would have trouble with this shit without some help.  She has a pretty face, a cute smile (when she's smiling), long hair and big brown eyes.  Remember these distinctive features.

WENDY


rvwndy

Here's Wendy.  Wendy is from Red Velvet.  Her hair has been colour-coded BLUE by SM Entertainment for easy identification purposes, because they knew that you would have trouble with this shit without some help.  She has a pretty face, a cute smile (when she's smiling), long hair and big brown eyes.  Remember these distinctive features.

YERI

  1. They're easy to tell apart. Anyone who says otherwise is probably just trolling and/or is retarded.

    1. I should have attached a poll to this to allow readers decide my troll/retard ratio.

    2. I'll bother telling them apart when they release something I want to hear.

    3. I am sure most of us had confusion at No.9 .. Joy is identifyable easily in all. Seulgi is easy too.

  2. They don't even slightly look alike .

  3. It's simple: Joy, Seulgi, Yeri and the other two! What's so hard about it? (Except for my d*** hehe-hehe...)

  4. Irene and Wendy are the only ones who have some kind of resemblance. The other three have unique features even among kpop.

    Joy's definitely the easiest to tell apart (especially since she's the tallest), followed by Wendy. Yeri looks the youngest so she's not too difficult. Seulgi and Irene can occasionally be really difficult though.

    1. Seulgi is never difficult for me, Wendy and Irene seem very similar to me, can't tell which is which.

    2. Seulgi and Joy are easiest to spot, didnt have a problem with these two. Plus Seulgi has a unique smile, with that tight plastic surgery cheeks

    3. Maybe it's just me who struggles with Seulgi then >.> Regardless, Irene definitely seems to be the member most have trouble with.

  6. It's pretty easy and, except for maybe the first week or two, I never had any problem to tell them apart.
    Joy's the whale face. Would not hit that
    Sougly's the one with the ultra fucked up eyes and otherwise bland face. Would not hit that.
    Irene's the cute one that sometimes tries to hard to play the shy card. Would cuddle with. And then hit it with the force of a thousand Taeyeons.
    Wendy's the one with the dead, deep, black, cold as fuck eyes. But I'd still hit that.
    New girl's the new girl. Would hit that.

    1. You are why eyelid surgery happens.

    2. Absolutely not, man.
      The problem with her eyes, for me, aren't that they're almond-shaped, but that they're both basically constantly looking in front of her nose. She is turbo-crosseyed. I can't deal with that.
      And the ears.

  7. Question 10 had me rolling.

  8. For me, I pick out Seulgi first because she's the most distinguishable (thus making her the prettiest to me) then Joy because she has a very teenaged look. Irene next because she's the conventionally pretty one. Then Wendy because she's the other conventionally pretty one. I can pick out Yeri for her cute wide-eyed kid features pretty quickly.

  9. I see the you are a Joy fan just like me,good choice I just watch redvelvet videos just to spot Joys awesome ass,its really great

  10. I'm following Bom's fap advice: it's just a single schizophrenic girl, so you can fap to the 100% of her videos. As a bonus the jail sentence for pedophilia is reduced to one fifth.

  11. Is it just me or does seulgi look kinda like lee hwijae's wife?

  12. Yeri's color is VIOLET i think, and i'm pretty sure not blonde. And hey i got all right!!

  13. I lost it at 6,8 and 9. Although Joy and Seulgi were easily identifyable in all. As for the beauty paegent collage, is that a troll attempt or what??
