K-Pop groups typically have a youngest member who is fondly called a maknae. You may think that these maknaes won’t hold much say in the group because of their young age, but the opposite is more true. In actuality, the older members excessively love and pamper them to the point that fans call them “maknae on top”. The hyungs may appear to be “beneath” them, but they wouldn’t have it any other way!
