Olivia Hye (Hangul : 올리비아 혜; Japanese : オリビアヘ, Oribia he) is the 12th member in the group LOONA.

Olivia Hye is the second youngest in LOONA, the maknae of yyxy and was revealed March 17, 2018. Her solo single "Olivia Hye" was released on March 30, 2018.

In the group she is represented by a wolf, the fruit blood plum and the color silver. Her second color is Black.[11] In yyxy, she's represented by the emotion “Anger”.

Names[]

  • Following the trends of full names like Kim Lip and Go Won, Olivia Hye is also a full name. However, it differs from the other two as it follows western naming order conventions where 'Olivia' is the given name and 'Hye' is the surname.
  • “Olivia” is a common English name from the origin of the 13th century meaning “olive” or “olive tree/branch”.[12]
  • “Hye” is taken from the first hangul of her given name, which is pronounced roughly as "hae" and means intelligent.
  • Olivia Hye prefers to use her real name [Hye-ju] more than her stage name, as seen on LOONA TV. However, she prefers Chuu to call her by her stage name. Chuu, in turn, would correct herself when talking about her, even when she isn't around her.
  • Her stage name was originally supposed to contain dam (담). The three options for her were to choose between Adam (아담), Jidam (지담) and Gotham (고담), however she liked none of the choices, she thinks it's Budam (부담, Burdensome).

Nicknames[]

  • Olivia Hye nicknamed herself "Olivia Colombia Don't Raise Up Don't Put Down Hye" (올리비아 콜롬비아 올리지 말고 내리지 말고 올리비아 혜) for the first time in LOONA TV #326 to make a pun. She introduced herself with it several times afterwards (in the show IDOL ROOM for example).
  • Yves nicknames her Marceline, as the Adventure Time character considering her dark image.
    • The voice actor's name of the character is Olivia Olson.
    • This was changed from Olive, because she dislike the name when other members of yyxy often mispronounce her stage name.
  • The other nickname she coined herself was Squidward. She used his personality to describe her MBTI (ISTP), especially compared to Choerry, Chuu (ENFP) and Jihan of Weeekly (ENFP), who are all loud and bubbly ENFP's, in which she calls them Spongebob's.
  • In 2021, HeeJin nicknamed her Malavia Hye on Frequency of The Moon #26 because Olivia Hye admits that Mala Tang (Sichuan-style spicy chilli soup) is her soul soup.

Charms[]

  • She is the second youngest in LOONA, but the third tallest after Yves and JinSoul.
  • Her hands are relatively large.
  • While Heejin and YeoJin also have deep voices for females, Olivia Hye has the deepest voice, especially in terms of singing.

Personality[]

  • She is known for having a mysterious personality.[citation needed]
  • She is later known for valuing productivity and efficiency. According to Yves and JinSoul, she has very efficient and smart practices after just mentally practicing beforehand. This also applies to her shopping habit. By doing the research and reading product reviews beforehand, she can buy quickly in store or online.[13]
  • Unlike Go Won, she is very handy with tools. She can split a watermelon open with spoons. But when she eats one by herself, she would cradle it, and just eat with a spoon. Choerry nicknamed her Watermelon Ph D. for that reason.
    • Unlike Go Won, she also has great social awareness.
    • She is quite competitive. Because of her physical mastery, she often tells people to do things properly, especially targeted at Yves.
  • She is also the strongest member in LOONA, defeating all members in hand slapping, arm wrestling and punch game, even though Chuu is a Taekwondo black belt.[6] She also has the strongest hand grip according to YeoJin.[14] She can carry Chuu on her back while carrying Go Won in front of her. She also was the only one that managed to repeatedly bang on a an Oriental drum for Paint The Town (LOONA TV #774)
  • She doesn't like cuteness, but is cute despite her dark image.
  • Despite liking to hug other members, she dislikes receiving hugs and kisses.
  • She is eloquent, but doesn't speak much.
  • She dislikes having to repeat herself multiple times.
  • She is also almost fearless, yet boring, when it comes to mystery box segments, often just reaching in and guess the items correctly in an instant.
  • She isn't interested in cosmetics like Chuu and Go Won.
  • According to Kim Lip, she is bad at lip syncing. When filming a lip sync video, she sang live and sang so loudly that others lost focus, so she is banned from singing live in group practices, especially in dance practices or MV filming.
  • She also has a tsundere-like personality, coolly leaving notes of encouragements on other members' bags, and often is the one planning surprise birthdays (except when Chuu plans one for Yves).

Relationships[]

  • Her older sister works part time in a café, and her mother revealed that she is well paid and doesn't work on weekends.[15]
    • Her sister is four years older (1997).[16]
  • Her role model is HyunA and she would like to try her Bubble Pop! album's concept one day.
