Why is ILLIT Moka Popular in China?

Korean netizens commented that in China, idols with more cute visuals are considered popular. Additionally, their current styling suits Chinese netizens’ taste, following the rise of douyin and coquette-themed brands such as Flower Knows. Additionally, it appears Moka has the type of face Chinese people like.

Chinese beauty standards idealize oval or egg-shaped faces with narrow jaws, as well as large, doe-like eyes with a high nose bridge. Moka has all of these features, so it isn’t surprising that she is so well-loved in the country!

However, others believe her fame isn’t fully unrivaled, as Wonhee and Minju’s sales are also rather high. Therefore, people believe these three rankings can be easily interchanged in the future.
