BLACKPINK‘s Jisoo has many celebrity friends. Being one of the top models, actresses, and singers around, she has socialized and met with countless people.
Only a select few, however, have made it into her personal circle. One of them who is repeatedly seen with her on Instagram, YouTube, and the like is a woman named Soojin. She was recently featured in the former’s YouTube vlog filmed in Los Angeles.
Who is Soojin?
For those who are unaware, Soojin is a freelance model and former K-Pop idol. She has worked with brands such as Saint Laurent…
…La Mer, and more.
Long-time K-pop fans may also recognize her as a member of the K-Pop girl group GLAM. She was active under the stage name Trinity before leaving the group in December 2012.
GLAM was the first girl group under BigHit Entertainment (now known as HYBE).
When did they meet?
Though it isn’t clear how the two met, their trail of photographs suggest that they’ve been friends at least since 2018.
