K-Pop’s most iconic friendship group has recently met up again, and this time they were joined by Stray Kids‘ Bang Chan.
The ’97-liners is a group of male idol friends that had its start with BTS‘s Jungkook and GOT7‘s Yugyeom. Being the social butterfly that he is, Jungkook put together a “line-up” that now famously consists of Yugyeom, GOT7’s BamBam, SEVENTEEN‘s Mingyu, ASTRO‘s Cha Eunwoo, and NCT‘s Jaehyun.
These besties are known to regularly hang out together (or at least, as much as their schedules allow), and fans found evidence of their latest outing in Seoul. This time they were there with fellow ’97-liner Bang Chan.
It’s no surprise that Bang Chan is close with the established group. Not only because he’s the same age, but also because Bang Chan himself is one of the friendliest idols in the industry.

He’s close with seemingly everyone in JYP Entertainment, as well as many idols from other companies such as (G)I-DLE‘s Minnie. Recently, he claimed to have had plenty of fun working with NCT DREAM‘s Jeno and Jaemin as MCs for KCON 2022 and is now also on his way to becoming besties with ENHYPEN‘s Jake.

And as it turns out, he’s besties with Jungkook, Jaehyun, and Cha Eunwoo as well! The four of them went out to eat at a particularly nice beef restaurant.
They left behind their autographs, which were then uploaded to Instagram by the owner.
The owner wrote the sweetest caption on their post, thanking the idols for their visit and expressing support for them, proving that the ’97-liners clearly made a good impression!
As busy as the ’97-liner friends all are, fans are happy that they’re taking time to wind down and hang out with each other. Hopefully, fans will see it happen again!
