Check out the 10 famous K-Pop idol best friends that make us envious of all the love!
1. EXO’s Kai x SHINee’s TaeMin
The main male SM Friendship pairing is EXO’s Kai and SHINee’s TaeMin. The two had grown tremendously close during their trainee days under SM. After TaeMin debuted first as SHINee, Kai continually cheered for him as TaeMin did the same when Kai debuted as EXO. Now that they’re both K-Pop stars, the strength between the two boys continues to grow stronger.
2. SNSD’s TaeYeon x SNSD’s Tiffany
If Kai and TaeMin are the male SM BFFs, Tiffany and TaeYeon has got to be the girl part. The two who met as they trained to debut under the same group developed a deep friendship that balanced each other perfectly. Tiffany, who is a bubbly, happy-go-lucky girl, and TaeYeon, who is more reserved and introverted, bring out the best sides of each other to form TaeNy.
3. INFINITE’s DongWoo x EXO’s Xiumin
This unlikely pair’s friendship started not so long ago, but their history runs a lot deeper. Although DongWoo and Xiumin met after their debut, the pair had gone to the same high school. After finding out that they were alumni, the two quickly hit it off and were seen hanging out together on various occasions.
4. INFINITE’s WooHyun x SHINee’s Key
Another Woollim x SM BFF couple is WooHyun and Key. The two began hanging out under the 91-line friends group, but found that they meshed along quite well. Since their meeting the two have grown closer, sharing each others struggles and joy throughout each promotion.
5. TWICE’s ChaeYoung x I.O.I’s SoMi
A legendary BFF couple born out of JYP, ChaeYoung and SoMi are famous for being inseparable way before their debut. The two grew close as they relied on each other during their trainee days (even getting randomly interviewed on the streets while they were on the way to practice!). Although they’re 2 years apart, SoMi’s energetic personality and ChaeYoung’s low-key style meshed perfectly. Even as ChaeYoung debuted as TWICE and SoMi was eliminated from SIXTEEN, the two have continued to cheer each other on. Now that SoMi has debuted as I.O.I, the two were able to reunite and hang out even more!
6. BIG BANG’s SeungRi x HaRa
This unlikely pair started since before the two’s trainee days. SeungRi and Hara had first met at a dance academy in GwangJu with the same dream of becoming a K-Pop star. The two had gone their separate ways for a while as SeungRi was accepted into YG and Hara into JYP/DSP. However, after the debut of BIG BANG and KARA, the two were able to reunite and share even more experiences as artists.
7. SNSD’s Tiffany x SISTAR’s BoRa
Tiffany’s best friend in SNSD may be TaeYeon, but Tiffany’s got another soul mate in the industry. BoRa and Tiffany are well known to have become close when their promotional periods overlapped. As they shared waiting rooms and met along the halls, the two became instantly close with their bubbly charms and energetic personalities.
8. JYJ’s XIA x Super Junior’s EunHyuk
One of K-Pop’s oldest best friendships belong to none other than JYJ’s XIA Junsu and Super Junior’s EunHyuk. The two have known each other since they were in elementary school, sharing the dream of becoming an idol. The two had promised each other to never smoke and never drink, so that they can become admirable artists. To this day, the pair keep their oaths together. Even when XIA had left SM Entertainment, EunHyuk never let it dwindle their friendship as he continues to go support XIA’s concerts and musicals whenever he can.
9. UP10TION’s Xiao x SEVENTEEN’s SeungKwan
Another blossoming friendship between our favorite idols are Xiao and SeungKwan. The two had met while promoting at overlapping periods, and quickly grew to a loving friendship. Xiao’s playfully adorable side matched well with SeungKwan’s dorky humor, garnering much love and attention from boths HONEY10s and CARATs.
10. BTS’s V x Park BoGum
I guess good looking people hang out with other good looking people, but this is just cuteness overload! V and Park BoGum met while Park BoGum was the MC for a music show program. V’s 4D personality and Park BoGum’s playfully dandy qualities combine to create one of the best looking K-Pop friendships around! Fans have constantly seen the two joking around together behind the stage, as well as continually supporting each others’ works through SNS.
