LE SSERAFIM Eunchae’s Awkward Meeting With IVE’s Leeseo And Liz Turns Into A Fanmeeting
When it came to Leeseo, Eunchae brought up something that both of them could relate to on a personal level. Both of them are the youngest members of their respective groups and are very close in age, Eunchae being a 2006 liner and Leeseo a 2007 liner. As the maknaes of their groups, the two singers quickly bonded over shared difficulties of their position in the group.
Eunchae mentioned that she recently watched an IVE vlog where Leeseo was reluctant to get her hair styled in pigtails for her High School Entrance Ceremony and found it relatable. Leeseo responded by saying that she dislikes wearing pigtails when she is by herself.
Eunchae immediately agreed and shared her disdain over the fact that maknaes are often given that hairstyle because of their childlike public image. When Liz joined in, saying that maknaes suit the hairstyle a lot, the younger duo immediately paired up in playful protest. Leeseo responded that the unnies never have to do pigtails, and Eunchae agreed that they all get to keep their hair pretty and straight.
