Even though their friendship wasn’t well known until just recently, they actually met half a year ago thanks to SEVENTEEN’s Mingyu!

That’s when Jungwoo came. He, uh- He was invited by Mingyu hyung, I think. He showed up by himself though, that’s some courage! He came alone and said hello to everyone. So we played futsal together. He was good at it! He’s good… Sometimes we played on the same team, sometimes he was on the opposite team.

Fans speculate that Jungwoo and Mingyu became close after they and SF9‘s Rowoon did a photoshoot together for Dispatch — all the way back in 2018!

Seungkwan and Jungwoo are totally friendship goals; Seungkwan said in his livestream that he monitored Jungwoo and STRAY KIDS’ Lee Know during their MCing activities and texted them afterward!

K-Pop hairstylist Park Naeju even mentioned in a recent YouTube video that Jungwoo went to Bit&Boot salon early before his schedule since he had plans with Seungkwan that evening!

Their friendship is so cute, and fans can’t wait to see them interact more in the future!
