Among the many virtual people in Korea, Rozy is one of the most popular virtual influencers. She gained popularity after dancing on the subway and in public places in a commercial for a bank. Many people did not realize she was an AI-based virtual human until they found out.
She is especially popular with Generation Z because she is interactive on social networks. She became an ambassador for many brands and was invited to many parties. She also visits famous places like a cool restaurant and makes people feel that she is their coolest friend.
She also recently released her debut single, “Who am I,” in which she talks about her identity and asks people to find true themselves.
K-pop singers are loved by fans worldwide, and YuA has been said to be a perfect idol figure. She is the result of what people want for K-pop stars, and she meets people’s expectations without fail.
No rumors and no scandals and she can literally sing for 24 hours and smile without getting tired. Legendary writers and a choreographer have collaborated for her song and choreography.
It was possible because she was born from the womb of a global entertainment corporation. She is known for an AI with human emotions.
Bang Si Hyuk, who is known as the founder of “Hybe Entertainment” and producer of BTS, has also invested in the creation and growth of YuA.
Reah Kim was developed by LG Electronics and first debuted at CES 2021 with the introduction of new technology from LG.

She studied industrial design and now works for Lotte as a designer, but she is also an influencer. She posts a lot of pictures of herself, including what she does in her free time, workout, her favorite dessert, food, and so on.
Lotte decided to give birth to her because the keyword “metaverse” has become popular and important to interact with younger generations.
