Momo and Sana arrived at the dorm as trainees on the same day, and Jihyo met them when she came back to the dorm after a practice session at the agency. Momo and Sana were the first Japanese people Jihyo had ever met.


When Jihyo told Momo and Sana that she was the same age as them, they were stunned. Jihyo said they both looked at each other and said, “What?!”

Momo explained that they were surprised that Jihyo was the same age as them because she jokingly told them that she was a celebrity when they first met. They couldn’t tell that Jihyo was joking, so they were surprised that she was the same age as them and already a celebrity.

Although their first meeting was a little awkward, Momo, Sana, and Jihyo are super close now!

Mina was intimidated by Jihyo at first. Like Momo and Sana, she didn’t realize Jihyo was the same age as her because Jihyo seemed so charismatic. One day, Mina had to walk past Jihyo, but she was so intimidated by her that she waited for Jihyo to pass her instead.

Although Mina was a little scared of Jihyo at first, she’s not anymore! The two have been roommates since their debut, and they have gotten very close.
