ITZY‘s Yeji and aespa‘s Karina are two talented idols who always captivate fans with their charisma and talent.
So understandably, fans were ecstatic when Karina first confirmed that the two were good friends in December 2021, showing off a series of stunning photos.
Fans are excited for any interaction between the two friends, like when they went viral for their interactions behind the scenes of the 2021 Mnet Asian Music Awards (also referred to as MAMA).
