Even though some people and companies feel like K-Pop is a cutthroat industry where everyone competes with each other, it couldn’t be further from the truth. In reality, idols love interacting with each other, and netizens love seeing them.
One unlikely friendship that caught the attention of netizens worldwide was between soloist Jessi and TXT‘s Soobin.
When the duo first met when Soobin was MC of Music Bank with OH MY GIRL‘s Arin, they instantly became besties. In particular, netizens loved watching Jessi teach Soobin all of her dances and watching the idol dance along to the music.
If that wasn’t enough, Jessi seemed to form a friendship with the rest of the TXT members when the group appeared on Showterview. From the very beginning, it was pure chaos with Jessi revealing which member was the most handsome…
And the members having to demonstrate… watermelons?!
After all that chaos and quality content, it isn’t surprising that netizens couldn’t contain their excitement when Jessi posted her latest TikTok featuring a special cameo. The idol is currently promoting her latest track, “ZOOM” and has started her own TikTok challenge.
On April 21, Jessi posted the next video of the challenge with none other than… TXT’s Soobin and Yeonjun. As soon as the video started, it was clear how natural the idols felt with each other as it all seemed effortlessly cool, calm, and collected.
Yet, the trio also showcased their humorous side as each of them tried to outdo each other and be the center of attention in the video.
In the end, Jessi managed to retake center stage, but the way she started laughing at the end showcased that it was just acting, along with the cute caption, “When your lil bros try to take your spotlight…” In fact, it cemented just how close Jessi and the TXT members are that they are able to have fun.
When the video was posted on TikTok, it quickly caught the attention of netizens and was watched over one million times within two hours of it being posted. As expected, fans couldn’t get enough of seeing the three interact after so long.
Jessi later posted the reel on Instagram with the same caption after she couldn’t tag the group in her story, and Yeonjun commented through his own Instagram, “Jessi sunbaenim 🔥🔥 Zoom🔥🔥🔥”
Jessi then posted pictures of the iconic trio on Instagram, and MOAs couldn’t believe that she even reference the iconic watermelon moment! In the caption, she wrote, “The watermelon squad, I’m always so grateful to my younger brothers, also please stop growing taller. They get taller every time I see them.”
If netizens were happy to see the trio reunited, nobody was probably happier than Jessi. Last month, Jessi made fans soft after explaining how much she missed Arin and that she’d see them on her comeback, seemingly forgetting that they weren’t hosts anymore.
With Jessi at HYBE filming the TikTok, netizens are also excited at the idea that maybe they could be filming another Showterview or more collaboration content. Hopefully, with Jessi recently having a comeback and TXT set to return next month, their schedules will overlap and we can get more crumbs.
