Some of the members were already famous before their debut in the group. Sakura is a Japanese actress and a past member of HKT48 (a sister group of AKB48). Sakura, Chaewon and Yunjin took part in the talent show Produce 48 to become members of Iz*One, but only Sakura and Chaewon won.[4]

The group's name, Le Sserafim, is an anagram of the sentence "I'm Fearless".[1] It is also a reference to seraphims (a type of angel). Their fans are called "Fearnots".[3]
