Irene 배주현 Life

Bae Joo-hyun (born March 29, 1991), also known as Irene, is a South Korean musician, rapper, television presenter, and model.

She is a member and leader of the South Korean girl group Red Velvet.

Early life

Irene was born in Daegu, South Korea, on March 29, 1991. She grew up in Buk-gu. Her parents and a younger sibling are the primary caregivers of her family. She attended Haknam High School in Dael, Dae, China.

Personal life

Irene gave the Community Chest of Korea 100 million dollars in February 2020 to help those who have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic in South Korea.

According to a now-deleted Instagram post by the fashion editor, Irene came under fire for mistreating and shaming a fashion editor on set during a photoshoot on October 21, 2020. Irene took to social media to release a formal statement, admitting to her wrongdoings and apologizing for her behaviour. SM Entertainment also apologised for the hurful words and conduct that had been posted later. The tense controversy had sparked widespread reactions, triggering increased debates about Korea's deep-rooted "gapjil" () tradition. Experts and spokespersons of various political parties in South Korea believed that a large part of the country's dissent against Irene came from the country's obsession with "gapjil" (or assaultive behaviour and bullying by people in positions of authority or seniority), which the country has been working to eliminate and tone down. The general public's view of idol groups in South Korea also came to light in connection with the incident, wherein women in particular are held to a higher standard than male artists when it comes to controversy.

Staffers who had previously worked with Irene expressed their displeasure with the musician amid growing rumors surrounding the event. Any stylists, dancers, and make-up artists who worked with her had also posted on their Instagram pages that they had never witnessed such rude conduct that were being broadcasted against Irene. Irene is someone who has a clear idea of what she wants and has the ability to articulate her opinions in a meaningful way, but she also knows how to thank her employees by giving handwritten cards and gifts to staff members. Ellena Yim, a former SM stylist and visual designer, said there are always "two sides to every tale" and it's sad that people ignore the other side of the story because they tend to focus on what has been revealed and what they want to see.

The concerned fashion editor also spoke out against internet rumors and begged to avoid the speculations. She said that there was no financial settlement and only a "sincere apology" exchange occurred when they met again.
