The members of aespa have had MYs more entertained than ever with their shenanigans on Synk Road. Synk Road may be their first reality show, but it has already proven iconic in its chaos.

If there’s one thing that’s certainly been made clear, it’s that the members have a truly chaotic sibling bond! Yet, netizens’ attention was also drawn by another potential friendship, and that is one between Giselle and D.O.

In the past, Giselle made it known that she was a big fan of the EXO main vocalist. When he released his solo album, Empathy, she happily recommended it.

Fans noted that, at least until the end of 2021, Giselle still referred to D.O. as sunbaenim, the formal honorific.

But in a new clip from Synk Road that is gaining attention, Giselle no longer referred to him so formally. Instead, she referred used the much more familiar term oppa.

Her use of the term left many netizens surprised…

But more than anything, it left them feeling touched; not only was the clip itself cute, but the idea that D.O. has been providing support to his juniors in SM Entertainment is also extremely heartwarming!

While it’s impossible to know how close they are as friends, fans have been loving the “interaction.”

They certainly can’t be blamed for hoping to see more!
