Liz’s real name is Kim Jiwon, born in Jeju Island


In addition, International fans also often ask whether she’s foreign or half-Korean. I don’t know how it became a meme, but there’s this joke about Liz being a German (German Liz) 


International fans are calling her ‘Liz German’ as a joke, right? They keep saying she’s German…ㅋㅋㅋㅋ Our Jiwon is a Tangerine Princess who has a tangerine farm…!

She was born in Nohyung-dong, Jeju City. I guess they call her that because she has distinctive facial features and Western-ish looksㅋㅋㅋㅋ

It seems like the reason she’s often misunderstood as a foreign member is because she has distinctive facial features and Western-ish looks + her name is Lizㅋㅋ


-Wow, I thought she was half-Korean until nowㅋㅋㅋ

-The other members all have Korean names, so I also initially thought she was a foreigner because her stage name is Lizㅋㅋ 

-Kim Jiwon was born in Jeju City, Nohyeong-dong, at the Jeju Future Obstetrics and Gynecology Clinic.

-Oh, I’ve heard about the meme made by international fans, saying that Liz’s real name is Elizabeth Helga Müllerㅋㅋ

-Wow, I also thought IVE had two foreign members…

-She kinda reminds me of Jeon Somi, so I thought maybe one of her parents is a foreignerㅋㅋㅋ

-She’s sooo prettyㅋㅋ

-Liz is gorgeous.

-Why Germany out of all places, though?ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

-In her graduation photo, she looks Korean, but when she dyes her hair, she really looks half-Korean… So beautiful~~

-The stage name ‘Liz’ suits her really well…

-I think she looks like she’s from Uzbekistan.

-I think it’s because she looks like she’s of German descent…

-How can her graduation photo look like that? She’s so beautiful.

-The German Liz meme started because of her outfit in the “Eleven” music video; it looked like traditional German attire.
