ITZY kicked off their first world tour CHECKMATE in Seoul, attended by fans, family, and fellow K-Pop idols.
There was one special guest in particular who touched Lia‘s heart so deeply that she cried.
When it was Lia’s turn to speak, she couldn’t voice her thoughts just yet. She’d begun to cry, wiping away her tears. There was an understandable reason behind them.
Lia revealed, “Um… So, my mom’s in the audience,” before wiping away more tears.
Making Lia laugh, Yuna responded, “No! I don’t want to talk about my mom!” There was a funny reason why Yuna tried to stop her from bringing up the topic.
While the members gathered to comfort her, Lia explained, “We always end up emotional when we talk about family, that’s why.”
As Lia wiped the rest of her tears, Yuna fully supported her by making everyone laugh once more. She pointed out how often their seniors cried at their concerts as well.
It’s okay to cry, though! Right, MIDZY? I’ve seen other sunbae-nims all cry at their concerts!
Watch Lia get emotional at seeing her mom in the audience and Yuna being the funniest source of support.
