Since last year, it seems like a week hasn’t gone by without a new K-Drama gaining popularity worldwide. In particular, one K-Drama that has taken the world by storm is Business Proposal, and one of the main reasons was lead actress Kim Sejeong (known as Kim Se Jeong), who plays the lead character Shin Ha Ri.
Although Kim Sejeong has taken over the hearts of netizens as Shin Ha Ri, many are surprised to realize that she is also an idol, gaining fame during Mnet’s Produce 101 and a member of the girl group I.O.I, before releasing her own solo tracks.
Well, if anyone had forgotten about that, they were definitely reminded after her recent Instagram post. On April 9, Kim Sejeong shocked fans after she not only showcased her new, shorter hairstyle (which looks amazing)…
But the fact that she was hanging out with none other than TWICE member Jihyo. The two looked like they were on an adorable date enjoying the spring weather and showcasing their undeniable visuals in the Instagram posts.
They also seemed to be having some fun in a restaurant as they took a cute selfie in front of a mirror. With the caption, “Jyo and Jeju,” it seems like the talented duo went on a cute Jeju date with each other.
When the images were posted, netizens couldn’t get over the adorable friendship between the two and shared how sweet it was that they went on a “date” despite their busy schedules.
However, it isn’t the first time the duo’s friendship has gained attention from netizens. Kim Sejeong revealed that the two became friends after they ended up using the same waiting room one day. After Jihyo got Kim Sejeong’s number, the two decided to be friends.
Once they became friends, it seemed like the relationship was undeniable. Whether it was Jihyo sending Kim Sejeong a coffee truck when she was filming…

Or that Kim Sejeong covered the group’s track “Alcohol-Free,” which got the appreciation from Park Jin Young.
And the fact Kim Sejeong, Jihyo, and member Mina went on a fishing trip with each other last year.
