7 Of The Most Iconic Friendships In K-Pop
Nothing beats seeing K-Pop idols interacting with each other and being besties!
Here’s a look at just some of the most iconic friendships in K-Pop!
1. BTS’s V and Jimin
BTS’s ’95-line is super iconic! V and Jimin are totally inseparable. They often joke around together, but they’re no strangers to deep conversations. These two are so close that they even dedicated a duet called “Friends” to their friendship!
2. The Padding Squad
The Padding Squad is simply legendary! This iconic squad consists of SHINee‘s Taemin, EXO‘s Kai, BTS’s Jimin, Wanna One‘s Ha Sungwoon, VIXX‘s Ravi, EXO‘s Kai, BTS‘s Jimin, HOTSHOT‘s Timoteo, and non-celebrity Jung Kwon Ho.
This group gets its name from their matching padded jackets. Taemin always wanted to have a group of friends who wore matching jackets, so he made custom jackets for his besties. Thus, the Padding Squad was born!
3. BLACKPINK and Red Velvet
BLACKPINK and Red Velvet’s members get along exceptionally well! The members of these two groups were often spotted hanging out with each other at award shows, like in the following photo of Red Velvet’s Seulgi and BLACKPINK’s Jisoo.
The two groups support each other on social media. Here’s a photo of Red Velvet’s Yeri commenting on BLACKPINK Rosé‘s Instagram live.
They also have lots of sweet behind-the-scenes interactions, like this hug between Red Velvet’s Irene and BLACKPINK’s Jennie.
4. GOT7’s BamBam and BLACKPINK’s Lisa
These 2 are totally friendship goals! BamBam and Lisa were in the same dance crew as kids, and they’ve been friends ever since! Lisa was one of the first people to listen to BamBam’s recent solo album, and BamBam had Lisa’s back when netizens posted racist, hurtful comments about her. We think it’s safe to say that these two will be friends for life!
5. NCT’s Taeyong and Doyoung
These two NCT members are bestie goals! Taeyong and Doyoung are absolutely hilarious together, and they plan on being friends forever. Taeyong even told Doyoung that he wants to go to the nursing home with Doyoung when they’re older!
6. ’97 line
The ’97 line is full of K-Pop icons! This group consists of BTS’s Jungkook, GOT7’s Yugyeom and BamBam, SEVENTEEN‘s Mingyu, The8 and DK, ASTRO‘s Cha Eunwoo, and NCT‘s Jaehyun. This group of friends started when Jungkook and Yugyeom decided to make a big group chat for all the male idols born in 1997. To this day, they still hang out and give each other thoughtful gifts!
7. TWICE and Somi
TWICE and Somi are definitely squad goals! Somi and the TWICE members are always showing their love for one another. Somi even incorporated some of TWICE’s most iconic choreography into one of her own performances, and the TWICE members cheered her on from backstage.
