The idols who are the eldest in their groups are often in charge of leading their members and being the one they go to when they have problems. For most of them, this is not a huge jump from their own family unit as they’re either born the eldest or in the middle.

For these two idols, however, they’re actually the maknaes of their families! Check them out below!

1. BLACKPINK’s Jisoo

Jisoo is BLACKPINK‘s eldest member as she was born on January 3, 1995, a year older than Jennie who is a 1996-liner.
