On December 30, 2022, YG Entertainment had fans excited after they revealed the first glimpse of their upcoming girl group BABYMONSTER.
After TREASURE, they will be the first group to debut and the first girl group from the company since BLACKPINK.
Anticipation was further increased after YG released footage of the members of BABYMONSTER, along with some of the YG artists talking about the group and what netizens can expect.
One of the members that gained attention is Lee Dain.
The young trainee has already had a taste of the idol life after she was part of the kid’s group U.SSO Girl.
It also means there are videos of the young star showcasing her talent.
Yet, aside from gaining attention for her visuals and talent before debuting, netizens have discovered that Dain has an unexpected connection to a member of NewJeans.
Like BABYMONSTER is expected to do in 2023, NewJeans took the world by storm after their surprise debut in 2022. With their fresh concept and unreal talent on stage, they were a group that truly made an impact.
Considering that Dain made her start in U.SSO Girl, it isn’t surprising that the member with a connection to the idol is NewJeans’ maknae Hyein.
After news of Dain’s debut with BABYMONSTER, netizens quickly found images of the two young idols together.
For fans who have followed U.SSO Girl, many would’ve found it impossible to imagine two of the members debuting in groups under the biggest K-Pop labels.
There are also clips of the two young idols interacting and releasing content as part of their group.
With BABYMONSTER set to debut soon, netizens are hoping that it won’t be long before Dain and Hyein get to interact on music shows. There is no doubt that both groups will also soar to new heights in 2023.
