4. Stray Kids’ Seungmin & Day6
Seungmin is a big fan of Day6, and this has led to many hilarious moments.
On one occasion, Day6 appeared on the show We K-Pop, which is a show where Seungmin is an MC. Seungmin, unfortunately, had an overseas schedule when Day6 appeared, so he couldn’t be there. This caused Day6 member Wonpil to give a message to Seungmin.
5. Key (SHINee) & BoA
Key grew up being a big of BoA, as he even joined her official fan club when he was younger.
Since I was young, I was a fan [of BoA’s]. It was to the extent that I joined the official fanclub.
