Many K-Pop idols naturally formed friendships with other idols outside of their groups, from seeing each other on various variety shows or even from before they debuted. But with their busy schedules, it’s not often that they get to see these friends. So when they do get together, it’s only good vibes in sight. Here are some of our favorite friendships and their interactions!
1. ATEEZ’s Wooyoung and Stray Kids’ Changbin
Wooyoung and Changbin were friends before Mnet‘s Kingdom, but their friendship really bloomed while competing with and against each other on the show. While Wooyoung got close to other Stray Kids members like Felix, he has a special place in his heart for Changbin.
2. ASTRO’s JinJin and PENTAGON’s Kino
These two recently wrapped up their podcast UNBOXING W/ JINJIN & KINO on DIVE Studios, where they revealed their friendship first began in middle school. Their good chemistry is clear just from watching their back and forth during their podcast!
3. WayV’s Lucas and (G)I-DLE’s Yuqi

6. BLACKPINK’s Lisa and WayV’s Ten
These two dancing machines took the world by storm when Ten posted a video of them dancing to WayV’s song “Kick Back.” At the time, Lisa was the dance mentor for Youth With You, a Chinese idol competition show, and told the contestants that she learned the dance from her close friend so she could teach it to them.
