The members truly created buzz for their incredible outfits on every stage, but Joy suddenly went viral when a non-K-pop fan who watched Red Velvet come back stage for "Inkigayo" can't help but be amazed over the idol's visual.

As the netizen don't know her name, Joy gained the nickname "K-pop Girl in the Rainbow Dress." and eventually, it spread throughout the K-pop community.

When Joy saw her photo, she was shocked and exclaimed, "Oh my, what's with that armpit?" drawing laughter.

The idol then suddenly talked about her pose exposing her flawless armpit saying, "But do you know what? If you raise your armpit, the picture comes out much better."

JaeJae, who was flustered by what she heard, asked Joy, "Why are you saying that all of a sudden?"

Joy then jokingly responded, "I think that kind of charm comes out of my armpits. Pheromones," adding, "One of the ways to appeal is to pretend to tie your hair and (raise your armpit)."
