In The Soop is a reality program created by HYBE that features a K-Pop idol group taking a special vacation to a villa located somewhere in a forest. It gives the group a chance to bond and experience things they normally wouldn’t because of their busy schedules.
The Wooga Squad (BTS‘s V, Park Seo Joon, Park Hyung Sik, Choi Woo Shik, and Peakboy) are currently starring in a spin-off program, In The Soop: Friendcation, and fans are loving the content coming from the show!

2. BLACKPINK’s LISA, (G)I-DLE’s Minnie, and TWICE’s Jihyo and Mina
This star-studded group have displayed their close friendship again and again. Fans were surprised when “The Female ’97 line” showed up to attend each others’ concerts (TWICE and (G)I-DLE) in Seoul! Fans may even enjoy seeing Jihyo‘s extroverted pal Kim Sejeong being an addition to this lineup as well!
3. The “Padding Friendship” Line
This group of friends consists of Ha Sungwoon, BTS‘s Jimin, HOTSHOT‘s Timoteo (also known as Moonkyu), EXO‘s Kai, non-celebrity Jung Kwon Ho, and SHINee‘s Taemin. The name of the group comes from the self-designed padded coats that Taemin gave each of his friends! This friend group has had plenty of icon moments throughout the years and fans are always excited to get more content. Most recently, Sungwoon and Jimin put their friendship to the test during a hilarious radio segment.
4. ’97 Line Squad
What is arguably the most iconic K-Pop friendship line, the ’97 liner squad consists of BTS’s JUngkook, GOT7’s BamBam and Yugyeom, ASTRO‘s Cha Eunwoo, SEVENTEEN‘s The8, DK, and Mingyu, and NCT‘s Jaehyun. According to Yugyeom, he and Jungkook were first friends before they decided to begin collecting other 97 liners and the rest is history!
