People noted that in photo shoots or album jackets, Winter is often overshadowed by her members, such as Ningning and Karina, who have sharper features.

This led people to theorize that she was still awkward posing in front of the camera but felt totally confident when performing.
Not only does Winter have a good voice, but she also possesses confident expression, beautiful dance lines, and neat and clean moves. Winter's charm and talent are the reasons why she is attaining such popularity.
Many were also surprised because Winter in this hairstyle bore an uncanny resemblance to a fellow SM Entertainment artist, Red Velvet member Irene! Following the event, a series of pictures comparing Winter with Irene was shared on several online community forums, attracting attention from internet users.
Some comments left by internet users include, "Winter looks like Irene during their 'Bad Boy' era," "It's amazing. With short hair, she looks like Taeyeon. With long hair, she looks like Irene. Winter is the member with the most 'SM genes' in aespa," and "In the past, I thought Winter was a copy of Taeyeon, but now I feel like she could pass off as Irene's sister."
