In between photos, the pair sat down to answer questions in what was termed a Chemistry Workshop. To start out they played a round of the balance game to see if their tastes matched up. Here are 6 times the pair showed off their adorable friendship during the game:

1. Dogs or Cats?

The first question the pair got was a simple one; to choose between dogs or cats. Both chose dogs which might suggest some chemistry until Hyewon decided to call out something fishy.

“Dogs!” | 엘르 코리아_ELLE KOREA/YouTube 

You said ‘cats!’ before,” she exclaimed while Yuri tried to dodge her suspicions.

Almost immediately, Yuri gave in and admitted she just wanted to share an answer with Hyewon, which is why her answer shifted.

2. “Can you live without me?”

The next question was a bit harder, asking the pair if they’d rather “[live] without a phone for a year vs [live] without friends.” This is where the pair’s harmony ended. Hyewon opted to give up her phone while Yuri confidently said she’d give up her friends.

“Living without friends.” “Living without a ph… phone.” | 엘르 코리아_ELLE KOREA/YouTube 

Hyewon quickly turned to Yuri and asked “can you live without me?” which prompted some giggles.

Yuri smartly replied that while she could contact Hyewon from her phone that, “No, I absolutely cannot live without you.”

“I can talk to you from my phone! No, I absolutely cannot live without you.” | 엘르 코리아_ELLE KOREA/YouTube 

3. Unnie or Hyung?

When asked if they’d prefer to use, “Unnie or Hyung” the pair again were at odds with Hyewon answering Unnie while Yuri said Hyung.

The editors of the video had to clarify that what happened next wasn’t a screenshot, but the pair staring at each other in disbelief.

Yuri then explained her choice by sharing that because she can’t usually use the title of “Hyung”, it would be a “unique and cool experience.”

“But where would I go and call someone Hyung? It’s a unique and cool experience.” | 엘르 코리아_ELLE KOREA/YouTube 

4. “…crossing the line.”

When asked “What’s tastier- Rice with yogurt vs. Sushi with ketchup?” the pair was initially stunned by the combination of foods before both picking the sushi.

“Sushi with ketchup!” | 엘르 코리아_ELLE KOREA/YouTube 

Yuri explained that rice with yogurt is “kind of…crossing the line.”

“Rice with yogurt is…” “Yeah, I think that’s kind of… crossing the line.” | 엘르 코리아_ELLE KOREA/YouTube 

She then shared that while the pair don’t each sushi, the combo with ketchup was definitely more palatable than the yogurt to which Hyewon agreed.

“Both of us don’t eat sushi… But we would rather have sushi with ketchup.” | 엘르 코리아_ELLE KOREA/YouTube 

5. Read-zoned?

In what may have been the most revealing question of the interview, the girls were asked “What’s more annoying- Read-zoned on Kakao Talk vs. Answering with initials only?” The first sign of trouble for Hyewon might’ve been when Yuri said she was “so sure about this one.”

“I’m so sure about this one.” | 엘르 코리아_ELLE KOREA/YouTube 

While both picked being read-zoned, Yuri had experience to backup her answer. She quickly turned to Hyewon and asked “so why do you read-zone me?”

“Being read-zoned!” “So why do you read-zone me?” | 엘르 코리아_ELLE KOREA/YouTube 

Hyewon sweetly shared that she planned to reply the following day which patched up the pair’s very brief disagreement.

“I was going to reply the next day.” “Oh, really?” “Yes.” | 엘르 코리아_ELLE KOREA/YouTube 

6. Cherry Jubilee

The final balance game question showed two sets of Baskin Robbins ice cream combos for the girls to pick from. While both girls picked the pink colored set of scoops, in explaining her choice, Hyewon dropped a bombshell on Yuri.

“2!” “I knew it…!” | 엘르 코리아_ELLE KOREA/YouTube 

But they both have a trap,” she said before sharing the danger of the Cherry Jubilee flavor. Upon hearing this attack on Cherry Jubilee ice cream, Yuri’s face fell.

“But they both have a trap. Cherry Jubilee and Shooting Star…!” “Huh?” | 엘르 코리아_ELLE KOREA/YouTube 

Yuri revealed Cherry Jubilee was the reason she chose those scoops. The girls figured out a solution when they realized that this mismatch of tastes means they can “share without fighting.” “How nice!”

“I chose 2 for Cherry Jubilee.” [They can share without fighting] “How nice!” | 엘르 코리아_ELLE KOREA/YouTube 
We’re so glad to see these two continue their sweet (if not a bit chaotic) friendship. To see the full interview check out the link below:
