Other unforgettable moments happened away from the main stage, like Stray Kids Bang Chan‘s cute friendship moment with Felix and NCT Doyoung‘s gentlemanly behavior towards aespa’s Ningning.

Hawkeye fans also spotted a cute interaction between NCT’s leader Taeyong and his fellow member Yuta. After the group was interviewed on the event’s red carpet, Yuta cutely turned back to ask for Taeyong’s hand before continuing to walk forward. Taeyong shyly accepted, which drove NCTzens, NCT’s official fandom, wild!

Some fans pointed out that this was becoming a habit for Yuta, who had also asked Taeyong to hold hands at other events.

Taeyong playfully shoved Yuta’s hand away from himself eventually. Still, as the group leader, it’s hard to imagine he will be able to resist accepting Yuta’s hand again in the future!
