From their pre-debut project to their upcoming September comeback, LOONA has become one of the biggest new groups worldwide. And it’s not just K-Pop fans who are obsessed—even fellow idols stan LOONA. Just take a look at this long list of self-confessed Orbits.
Star soloist Sunmi is known to be one of LOONA’s biggest fans. No wonder she was super excited to see Heejin, Kim Lip, Choerry, Yves, and Olivia Hye covering her song, “Full Moon”, on M Countdown.
In one live broadcast, Sunmi told fans, “LOONA is the best!“. She also shared a letter Yves sent to her on Instagram.
2. Renjun (NCT)
While hosting his radio show earlier this year, NCT‘s Renjun played LOONA’s “So What”, describing it as “very explosive” and “very fierce“. He also said he likes the MV and choreography, which add to the appeal of the song.
And that wasn’t the last time he played their songs. Last month, he played LOONA – Odd Eye Circle‘s “Girl Front”, and this month, he played “Butterfly”.

Several Dreamnote members are all big LOONA fans. In a live broadcast back in March, Eunjo told fans that one of her favorite songs of the moment was “So What”.
