And there are some clues about the secret of LOOΠΔ's new unit in the music video for 'Egoist'
- Olivia Hye (2018)
- She is represented by a wolf. Her official color is silver. Her fruit is a blood plum.
- Her zodiac sign is Scorpio.
- Following the trends of full names like Kim Lip and Go Won, Olivia Hye is also a full name. However, it differs from the other two as it follows western naming order conventions where 'Olivia' is the given name and 'Hye' is the surname.
- The surname 'Hye' is taken from the first hangul of her given name. It is pronounced roughly as "hae".
- Olivia Hye prefers to use her real name more than her stage name, as seen on LOONA TV.
- Her stage name was originally supposed to contain dam (담). The three options for her were to choose between Adam (아담), Jidam (지담) and Gotham (고담), however she liked none of the choices. (This was however a joke as seen on Loona TV)
- Her role model is HyunA and she would like to try her Bubble Pop! album's concept one day.
- She was an athletic representative when she was in elementary school.
- She attends Sungshin Girl's High School in Seoul along with Choerry. They are in the same year group. At first her classmates did not know she was also a member of LOOΠΔ because she was pre-debut and could not reveal it yet. Until her teaser images were released, she pretended not to know who Choerry is and kept her identity a secret.
- She is not afraid of heights.
- She is the second youngest in LOONA, but the third tallest after Yves and JinSoul.
- She is the maknae in the sub-unit LOOΠΔ yyxy.
- She likes to play League of Legends as Miss Fortune.
