Earlier this month, Mnet‘s competition program Queendom 2 aired its final episode—announcing WJSN as the second season’s winners, as well as LOONA and VIVIZ as the second and third place winners. The program, even amid some controversies, received a tremendous amount of support from K-Pop and girl group fans from Korea and around the world.
In an exclusive interview with Koreaboo, VIVIZ members EUNHA, SINB, and UMJI looked back on a memorable interaction with a new hoobae-friend on Queendom 2!
When asked for a behind-the-scenes stories from the program, SINB revealed a surprise VIVIZ received from the program’s maknae: Kep1er‘s Yeseo.
While VIVIZ debuted a month after Kep1er did, members EUNHA, SINB, and UMJI are considered sunbae (senior) idols to Yeseo. That being said, according to SINB, “love was all around” on the program regardless of seniority!
Yeseo of Kep1er gifted us with a bunch of snacks, along with a note. Love was all around on Queendom 2.
And it seems the friendship continued well into the program and following the grand finale of it, too. On June 11, Kep1er’s Yeseo tweeted a picture of herself embraced in EUNHA’s arms…
…along with a picture of VIVIZ’s album, autographed by the members!
퀸덤 파이널 무대 끝나구.. 은하선배님이랑..💗😭

I got to take a picture with EUNHA sunbae-nim after the final performance on Queendom 2. She even autographed the album I bought…! I was so touched.

Based on Yeseo’s genuine excitement and VIVIZ’s adorable sneak peek into the behind-the-scenes of Queendom 2, both girl groups’ fans look forward to this beautiful sunbae-hoobae friendship lasting a long time!
