Before debuting with CLASS:y, Riwon used to work as a child actress in the web series My YouTube Diary. She also featured in multiple ad films and participated as a cast member on Tooniverse. On the other hand, Hyein was also a well-known face in her predebut era. She starred in The Girl’s Double Life web drama and the TV show Tok! Tok! Boni! Hani! as well.

Some of the recently surfaced pictures show that the two idols often hung out together and were pretty close, even as little kids.

The two also worked together during the pageant of Miss Intercontinental Japan 2019.

Some hawk-eyed fans also noticed that last year Hyein interacted with Riwon’s Instagram post from her personal account. In the comment section, Hyein and Riwon were joking around with fellow child-actress Ahn Seung Bi.


  • Seung Bi: “Our pretty Riwon…You can do everything!! Love you, pretty girl.
  • Riwon: “As expected…Our ever-supportive aunt is the best.”
  • Hyein: “Aunt’s love seems to be overflowing.”

In all probability, the duo is still very close, given how Riwon made sure to post a dance cover of NewJeans’ “Hype Boy” on CLASS:y’s social media accounts.

Fans are now hoping that they can see these two interact on screen as idols in the near future.
