Being maknae of the group means that you are the youngest member. However, there are some Kpop idols who are not the youngest, but they are called as the fake maknae for their cuteness and adorability. Here are the top 10 cutest FAKE maknae in Kpop boy groups.
Kpop Boy Groups Cutest Fake Maknae
Hanbin is a Vietnamese member of TEMPEST. Born in Yên Bái City, Vietnam, on January 19, 1998, Hanbin is not the real maknae of TEMPEST (real maknae: Taerae, born May 9, 2002).

Stray Kids Felix
Lee Felix (September 15, 2000) is the cutest FAKE maknae of Stray Kids, and he often acts like he is the real. His primary love language seems to be physical touch, as he likes to cuddle with other Stray Kids members. The real maknae of Stray Kids is Jeongin (I.N.), born on February 8, 2001.
People who don’t know ATEEZ well will believe that Choi San (born July 10, 1999) is the group’s maknae. San becomes the cutest fake maknae for his innocent face, shy dimples, shiny eyes, and cute voice. However, the real maknae of ATEEZ is Jongho, who was born on October 12, 2000
TREASURE Choi Hyunsuk
Hyunsuk really knows how to be the cutest maknae, especially when he is baby-talking. The cuteness overload! It is hard to believe that Choi Hyunsuk (born April 21, 1999) is actually the oldest member of TREASURE and Junghwan (February 18, 2005) is the real maknae of the group.

Another oldest member of the Kpop boy group who often acts as the cutest fake maknae is TXT Yeonjun. Despite his age (born September 13, 1999), Yeonjun quickly makes everyone believe that he is the youngest member of TXT only by his innocence. Huening Kai (born August 14, 2002) is the real diamond maknae of TXT.
Though the appearance of Xiumin (born March 26, 1990) makes him look like the youngest member of EXO, he is actually the oldest. His chubby face and charming grin might be two other reasons people believe he is the cutest fake maknae of the group. However, the real maknae of EXO is no different than attractive Sehun, born on April 12, 1994.
The list of cutest fake maknae of Kpop boy groups won’t be complete without the hyung of BTS. Kim Seokjin, who has just released “The Astronaut,” often acts as if he is the group’s maknae. In fact, Jin (born December 4, 1992) will be the first member of BTS that enlist in military service this year. The real youngest member of BTS is the golden maknae Jeon Jungkook (born September 1, 1997)
Kim Myungjun, more popular as MJ, loves to joke a lot that he is called “the happy virus.” Not only that, but MJ (born March 5, 1994) is also known as the cutest fake maknae of ASTRO. In fact, the real maknae of the group is Sanha (born March 21, 2000).
Wen Junhui or SEVENTEEN Jun (born June 10, 1996) is a Chinese cutest fake maknae that loves spicy food. Despite his age, he still looks and acts like the youngest SEVENTEEN member. Meanwhile, the real maknae is Dino (born February 11, 1999), who is three years younger than Jun.
Last but not least, the cutest fake maknae of Kpop boy groups is CRAVITY Hyeongjun (born November 30, 2002). He is such a clingy baby that people will believe he is the group’s youngest member. However, the real maknae of CRAVITY is Seongmin, born on August 1, 2003.
