IVE debuted at the end of 2021 with two former members of IZ*ONE, Wonyoung and Yujin. LE SSERAFIM debuted in the spring of 2022, also with two former members of IZ*ONE, Sakura and Chaewon.
Fans couldn’t wait to see interactions between the former fellow group members and were only able to witness crumbs until more recently.

Wonyoung was the beloved maknae of IZ*ONE, and as such, was cherished by her unnies. She developed a close friendship with Chaewon through their sub-unit, 3Won, which also included former IZ*ONE member Hyewon.
Multiple former IZ*ONE members’ promotions have overlapped this past year, leading to many heartwarming interactions and mini-reunions as the former members seem to gravitate toward each other.

At the recent 37th Golden Disc Awards in Thailand, 2/3 of 3Won were able to reunite when LE SSERAFIM and IVE were seated next to each other in the audience.
Fans quickly spotted Chaewon and Wonyoung’s sweet interactions, taking them back to their days together in IZ*ONE.
The two were spotted holding hands and frequently talking to each other in the crowd, happy to be seated together.
