You’ve most likely seen her face if you frequently visit the children’s clothing section of huge brands like Zara, Abercrombie and Disney, among many others. Or if you are a fan of Blackpink or follow The Black Label record label, you’ll know that Ella has been signed for almost two years now.

Yes, she is destined for K-pop stardom


It was announced in July 2018 that The Black Label’s Teddy had signed Ella. “She has a special voice that is completely capable for being a singer, as well,” Teddy said. She already has 3.8 million followers on Instagram and we can only imagine how this will grow more as she continues to conquer catwalks, print ads, and the K-pop world very soon. Not only that, but Ella is also said to have the face of a young Song Hye-kyo. Some argue, though, that she is more like Jennie of Blackpink.
