Gonna need some ice for those burns when these maknaes are done with you!

The maknae of a K-pop group is the youngest member, often doted upon by their elders and generally known to be the cute and innocent ones.

But some maknaes appear to have not received the memo because there are some idols out there who can throw shade with the best of them, all of which is directed to their elders!

Without further ado, here are 13 of K-pop's sassiest maknaes (in no particular order)!

13. VIXX's Hyuk

The rest of VIXX say Hyuk used to be respectful and cute, but he's now the scary one of the group!

12. SHINee's Taemin

Taemin is probably the most doted on member in K-pop because the rest of SHINee let him get away with anything!

11. EXO's Sehun

Sehun doesn't say too much, usually letting his facial expressions do all the judging. But when he does speak up, watch out!

10. f(x)'s Krystal

Seeing as how she's considered to be the "ice princess" of K-pop, it's no surprise that Krystal can be quite the savage maknae when the time calls for it!

9. WANNA ONE's Guanlin

In Wanna One's short time together, Guanlin has shown himself to be quite the savage maknae!




8. MAMAMOO's Hwasa

Given how close MAMAMOO are, it's no surprise that Hwasa likes to throw her confidence and attitude around her members like it's nothing!

7. GOT7's Yugyeom

Yugyeom doesn't really look like the maknae, which explains why he is always full of confidence and quips whenever he's around his other members!

6. Red Velvet's Yeri

Yeri may be a late addition to Red Velvet, but she quickly established herself as someone who can give and take sass with the best of them (just ask Joy)!

5. BTS' Jungkook

He may be the golden maknae, but even Jungkook's own members say that he doesn't really act like one!

4. TWICE's Tzuyu

Talk about the definition of "looks can be deceiving!" Tzuyu isn't 100% confident in her Korean, which makes her sassy remarks even more savage!

3. BIGBANG's Seungri

Seungri is by far the most outgoing and talkative member compared to the rest of his BIGBANG, which makes him a gold mine for brutal "savage maknae" moments!

2. Girls' Generation's Seohyun

Ever since their debut days, Seohyun has always been the most honest and respectful member in the group. But when push comes to shove, she's able to unleash the most savage of burns!

1. Super Junior's Kyuhyun

Considering that Urban Dictionary uses Kyuhyun as the literal definition for "Evil Maknae," you know that a savage moment will almost certainly happen whenever he speaks (or interacts) with his Super Junior members! 


There are WAY too many savage Kyuhyun moments over the years, but we're particularly fond of that time when he talked about his fellow members' flaws:
