When it comes to some of the most iconic friendships in K-Pop, one of the most popular is between TXT‘s Yeonjun, Stray Kids‘ Changbin, and ATEEZ‘s Wooyoung. The trio have been friends since before they debuted and have always treated fans to some epic interactions.
Recently, one interaction between TXT’s Yeonjun and Stray Kids’ Changbin gained a lot of attention, and it happened on the music show Inkigayo.
Yeonjun has recently become one of the new MCs for SBS’s Inkigayo, and Stray Kids were promoting their track “Maniac” when he had his first show. Yeonjun interviewed the group during the show, and netizens instantly fell in love with the flirting between Yeonjun and Changbin.
However, another thing fans noticed was the height difference. It is known that TXT’s Yeonjun is basically a giant, along with the rest of the group, and fans instantly noticed the seemingly large height difference.
During a recent live broadcast, Changbin and member I.N chatted about the interview. Although Yeonjun wasn’t mentioned directly, the Stray Kids member spoke about his “MC friend” and explained that their height difference isn’t that obvious, blaming the camera.
Usually, our height difference isn’t to that extent, it’s the camera’s fault.
Changbin then explained that it was the angles of the camera that impacted the way the duo was shown. He then added that the comments about how Changbin should drink milk to grow shouldn’t be sent to him.
The camera is to blamed, and I know that friend’s height is a bit over 2m, and I’m a bit smaller than 2m, so that’s why. There’s no need for comments like, ‘Because you didn’t drink enough milk…’ You got the wrong person!
Changbin then became very passionate about the topic, addressing the fact that the height difference was not realistic and was all down to the perception made by the camera. I.N couldn’t hide his laughter seeing his hyung shouting in the car.
Perspective, the perspective! Because he was standing in front! And on top of that, he’s a tall guy!
When the video was shared, netizens couldn’t get over just how close the two idols are because Changbin could speak about the interaction so openly. Many even pointed out that fan wars were unnecessary when idols loved each other this much.
Yet, Changbin wasn’t the only member to address how shook they were at the height difference.
While holding his Chan’s Room live broadcast, Bang Chan couldn’t help remembering their recent Inkigayo appearance. When Bang Chan saw how tall Yeonjun was in person, he couldn’t believe his eyes. Using his hand to demonstrate how tall, Bang Chan said, “If you see the MC, Yeonjun seems like he’s three meters tall.”
It seems like everyone has fallen in love with the friendship between Changbin and Yeonjun, and it isn’t hard to see why. Hopefully, there will be a lot more in the future, and including fellow bestie ATEEZ’s Wooyoung!
