On the 26th of January, ITZY‘s Ryujin took to VLIVE to talk with fans.
Along with song covers and chatting with fans, Ryujin took the opportunity to demonstrate her knowledge of current TikTok trends.
She proved that she was up to date with not only K-Pop trends. As she demonstrated both by effortlessly pulling off Kep1er‘s “Wa Da Da” challenge.
As well as the iconic hand choreography of IVE‘s “ELEVEN.”
But Ryujin also proved that she was up to date with non-K-Pop trends.
She also showed off her “Kiss My A** Goodbye” challenge for fans.
The challenge is to the audio of Meghan Trainor‘s song “Title.”
The artist herself has a video of her doing the challenge, which is the original video under the main sound on the TikTok app.
Available EVERYWHERE tomorrow 🥳 #Title
And in her VLIVE, Ryujin said that she and Chaeryeong learned the challenge together, and she wanted to upload the video.
But since JYP Entertainment runs ITZY’s TikTok and the artists mostly use the platform to promote their own songs, that isn’t really an option.
Still, Ryujin managed to find a way to share her cover with fans. Sending them a video of her doing the challenge on her Bubble (an app that lets idols message fans).

Some fans joked about Ryujin sending a video that didn’t include Chaeryeong.
ryujin said on her previous vlive that she and chaerlia did the kiss my ass goodbye challenge and she will upload it if she has a chance but girlie just straight up sent her solo kiss my ass goodbye tiktok on bbl 😭😭 ryujin be like “btch move i’ll do it myself”

But they found it more entertaining that Ryujin didn’t even bother to upload it on TikTok at all, simply choosing the most convenient platform that allowed her creative freedom.
Of course, they also focused on her visuals in the video.
deeply in love with shin ryujin pic.twitter.com/gS2FC8BPIG

And of course, some fans were focused on how if she had been able to upload it on a popular video platform, like TikTok or even Instagram Reels and YouTube Shorts, the video would have easily gone viral.
Tiktok, IG reels and YTShorts will be whipped for Ryujin if she posted it there pic.twitter.com/ac6ZRXwrDt

And clearly all her fans are hoping that the idol gets the chance to publish as many TikTok challenge videos as she wants on the official app.
