Soloist Somi is currently signed under YG Entertainment‘s The Black Label, but before the idol debuted as a soloist, she was a trainee under JYP Entertainment. Because of the time Somi spent in JYP Entertainment, she has close friendships with TWICE and Stray Kids‘ Bang Chan.
Stray Kids’ Bang Chan has shown his friendship with Somi through some of his Chan’s Room live broadcasts, like when he reacted to “Dumb Dumb” and congratulated her. Bang Chan explained that when they were both trainees, he “saw her all the time as a kid. It’s been almost 7 or 8 years. We’ve known each other for 8 years.”
The two have also had several adorable interactions at awards shows.

And in one of Somi’s live broadcasts, Somi not only exposed her adorable nickname for her friend but suggested that she should react to Stray Kids videos as thanks to Bang Chan always supporting hers.
