Who is your APRIL bias?

Latest Korean Comeback:

Who is your APRIL bias? Do you know more facts about them? Feel free to comment below. It can help new fans find more info about them. 🙂

  • ojioji

    chaewon is a lead vocalist and jinsol is a main vocalist and visual

  • Eileen Nguyen

    Naeun is not a sub vocal she is a vocal

  • Rema

    @disqus_G3RDvSngPG:disqus
    In Korea they say ‘Sub-Vocalist’ to the vocalists that are not Lead or Main vocalists.
    In Korea they usually call them ‘sub-vocalists’ not ‘vocalists’!

  • kosmic

    jinsoul is a main vocalist along side with chaewon

  • Ake

    My bias is Yenal <3

  • Leila Soriano

    Rachel is the lead rapper ^ ^

  • theo

    Rachel can do an impression of spongebobs laugh!

  • Blink Love Blackpink

    Yena is not the main Dancer it Rachel the member say so in their video

  • KProfiles

    Thank you for the info. 🙂

  • KProfiles

    Thank you for the comment! 🙂

  • Leila Soriano

    Can I see the video please? Ever since Hyunjoo left, Yena has been the main dancer.

  • ShoRyuu

    They should select a leader to represent the group. Unless they do like Blackpink which they think all of them are considered to be leaders

  • Leila Soriano

    Can you change the pictures to their most recent comeback?

    Also, I believe that Yena is the main dancer. In most dance breaks in their song, she can be found in the center + the person who said that Rachel is the main dancer doesn’t really specify where the video is and I can’t seem to find where they say that Rachel is the main dancer.

  • Rizumu

    Please change their photos to the recent comeback.

  • KProfiles

    Please give us the comeback/photoshoot name or send us a link to the requested photos, as it happened before to update the pictures for a profile, then the one requesting to complain that it wasn’t the photoshoot he/she was asking for. =/

  • HighDee 에이프릴 ❤️

    Rachel is the same height and weight as Yena. Both said so many times in their V Live broadcasts

    And Chaewon is not a rapper, its a joke that fans make. But she can rap LOL

  • KProfiles

    @disqus_NRqKnL7NFc:disqus

  • Christian Kyle Patuasic

    Woah!!! Thanks bro! I guess my eyes aren’t deceiving me…

  • Rizumu

    Naeun has an Instagram account. https://www.instagram.com/betterlee_0824/?hl=en

  • Rose Royal

    Wait, what concept did somin leave because of? Why didn’t she like it?

  • Chaewon <3

  • Isabelle

    I might be totally wrong but I think Naeun is more than a sub vocal. She usually gets challenging singing parts(like her part in April story) and sometimes gets the chorus(the blue bird). Plus she obviously gets more parts than Rachel and Yena who are sub vocals and more challenging parts than Chaekyung, who is a lead vocal. I think that Naeun could be a lead vocal, or at last a vocalist.(sorry for any mistakes English isn’t my first language)

  • mianhemianhe

    naeun stars in ‘A-Teen’ by playlist global as kim hana or ‘kimha’

  • EunAura

    Naeun plays Kim Hana in the web drama “A-Teen”

  • Lily Perez

    On asc Chaewon introduced herself as April’s soulful voice and Yena introduced herself as “cute girl Yena”

  • Lily Perez

    -Yena saved Chaewon on her phone as “Mongshil” (a Korean book character) because she cut her hair (her hair after the haircut is similar to the character’s)

    -Chaekyung calls herself princess

  • Arnest Lim

  • KProfiles

    @binnieswaist:disqus Thanks a lot for the info, it’s much appreciated! 🙂

  • Lily Perez

    What other Chaekyung do you know?

  • moslace

    Jinsol introduced herself as the lead vocal of the group on this year’s masked singer though, and that’s coming straight from the horse’s mouth. I’ve always known her to be the lead rather than the main vocal since following them almost 2 years ago now, while Chaekyung and Naeun are sub vocals.

  • KProfiles

    @disqus_Sm5wRXf4af:disqus Thanks a lot for the update and for providing the source, it’s much appreciated! 🙂

  • Lily Perez

    I think Chaekyung is still a lead vocal tho

  • Eliza Gevorgyan

    So is Naeun, originally she WAS just a vocalist, but in 2017, it was announced that she would be a lead vocalist. Up to date, she’s a lead vocalist.

  • Lily Perez

    Honestly I don’t see the problem with a group with 3 lead vocals and 1 main vocal🤔 the fact that Jinsol is a lead vocal doesn’t cancel the Naeun and Chaekyung’s part as lead vocals

  • Lily Perez

    I think that although Jinsol turned out to be a lead vocal, Chaekyung and Naeun are still lead vocals as well. They always got significant lead vocal roles like the bridge, prechorus and chorus
    Chaekyung is also inarguably the 3rd vocal and she even did a high note in their mr.chu cover (that was orginially done by Namjoo, the *lead vocal* of Apink)

  • Green_Beans

    Just me or does Jinsol and Jeno look similar??

  • moslace

    I’m fine with what ever positions they have, as long as the information is accurate or confirmed.

  • Lily Perez

    Yeah me too, but I think it’s more accurate to put Chaekyung and Naeun as lead vocals as well

  • Lily Perez

    Not to be pushy or obsessive but please put the lead vocalist positions back in Chaekyung’s and Naeun’s position

    I understand it was confirmed that Jinsol is a lead vocal but what I don’t understand is why it cancels the other girls’ lead vocal position😅

  • Wayne Bowker

    I love April’s new song Oh! My Mistake ❤️ Jinsol is my favorite in the group and is for me the prettiest & most talented member. She has the most sex appeal and looks amazing in that black top & checkerboard skirt 😍 Jinsol you are one very beautiful girl 😘

  • Hae Yeo Reum

    Hey! Jinsol in “Oh! My Mistake” is a Main Vocalist, aren’t she?

  • Gamble

    [REMINDER] April Jinsol may say she is a lead vocalist till now because that is her position before, as you can see she is already a “Main Vocalist” along with April Chaewon. April Yena is the “Main Dancer” and April Rachel is the “Lead Dancer”.

    Thank you admin for updating.

  • moslace

    Anyone who is not a main or a lead vocalist is called a sub vocalist. All of them are ‘vocalists’.

  • Fineapple PizzA

    it says here naeun had a cameo appearance in GOT7 MV stop stop it? with other sixteen participants… can I see her there… I try to analyze the whole MV but I can’t find her please send a link or a screenshot/picture where she is…

  • Alexis-Reenae Schurter

    Rachel loves listening to Disney songs, but doesn’t have a favorite. I got it from this video at around seven minutes in.
    https://youtu.be/Sdbu1Q1_yf4

  • marie

    Chae won has hyperhidrosis, which means she sweats a lot. She mentioned it on A Song For You season 5 episode 7 (https://youtu.be/wldeYgDL7YE)

  • m i n e l l e

    Rachel’s last name isn’t Song/송 it’s Sung (성)

  • Lily Perez

    How is there no lead dancer tho

  • Lily Perez

    that’s… Kinda gross
    She’s 17 bro

  • Lily Perez

    I think Chaewon should be a sub rapper
    she rapped in Muah and she showed she’s a hella good rapper when she covered DduDuDduDu and Heart Attack

  • moslace

    will look for more info on that

  • ChuuPenguin

    I thought I was the only one

  • orbitkaeun

    and also with moonbin from astro

  • Finn Jay

    Jinsol is a Main Vocalist; She is the sweetest and clingy meber of the group.

    Chaewon can rap (Her Official Position is: Main Vocalist, Rapper)

    Chaekyung is the Mother of the Group

    Rachel is so flexible; She smiles a lot; She easily get too serious at nonsense things; She likes bunny and rabbit; She can cook

    Yena is the most attentive and responsible member of the group; She can do an impression of a bullfrog

    Naeun is the loudest and hyper member of the group; She can do many impressions

  • Sofia

    Chaekyung is a vocal queen but I’m surprised how naeun isn’t the most popular member (according to that poll) her visuals get complimented a lot so I’d expect her to be first but I’m not complaining, haha.

  • Sofia
  • Lily Perez

    Because Chaekyung was on Produce 101 and I’m pretty sure most April stans know the group because of her, I know I do

  • Jenny

    Well during April’s debut era somin(leader) and chaewon was main vocalist and jinsol was lead vocalist hyunjoo and yena was main dancer and naeun was sub vocalist.but after somin left the group and followed by hyunjoo(.since then April dont have any leader they confirmed it in some radio show) and when chaekyung and rachel added to the group chaewon,naeun ,yena,jinsol position remained the same in additional yena was given the position main rapper and the new members chaekyung as sub vocalist and rachel as lead dancer and lead rapper.i get it that you guys get confused that jinsol is main vocalist but lead and naeun and chaekyung as lead vocalist instead of sub.well April debuted pretty young and they are developing their skills one by one .so it is hard to give them the correct position. hope this helped

  • Kkuraaaa
