Wearing a white off-shoulder dress, Irene is indeed the embodiment of a Greek goddess. Although she’s only wearing light makeup, it is enough to accentuate her perfect facial features and porcelain skin. She completed the look by adding a piece of jewelry to her long, wavy hair.

Following the episode, an internet user took to the online forum Nate Pann to write an article with the title, “Irene’s look is not losing even among the 4th-generation.”

In the photos, Irene is standing beside young girl groups including BABYMONSTER and STAYC. These teams are mostly comprised of young members with 15 and 19-year-old maknae members, respectively.

Although Irene is already 33 years old, she exudes a youthful and vibrant appearance you would think she’s also in her 20s — once again proving why she’s called the “Original Visuals.”
