The girl group comprises five talented members: Wonhee, Minju, Iroha, Moka, and Yunah. Each brings their own unique style and personality to the group.

Before their official debut, ILLIT had started making waves in the fashion industry. They had been featured in the luxury fashion house Acne Studios SS24 global campaign.

With such a promising start, ILLIT is well on their way to becoming one of the most successful K-pop girl groups of all time.
