While some friendships and lasting bonds have been formed when celebrities and idols began mingling and hanging out with each other after they ran into each other during shows and awards, some were also friends to begin with before becoming the stars that they are today.
These friendships, one could argue, may actually be deeper than most.
Below are some K-Pop idols and celebrities who were friends before they became famous.
Hwasa (Mamamoo) & WheeIn (Mamamoo)
These two idols have been best friends ever since middle school. Stories have it that Hwasa approached WheeIn after seeing the former appeared on TV Chosun’s ‘Idol Party’.
Zico (Block B) & Park Kyung (Block B)
The two used to make sure to get each other’s backs during school attendance when one of them didn’t feel like going to school. Park Kyung even saved up $100 per month for a year to give Zico a nice present.
V (BTS) & Jang MoonBok
According to the stories, these two met back in high school when they decided to strike a conversation after running into each other inside a restroom.
