In an interview with bnt, Ladies’ Code‘s Ashley revealed that she is close friends with BLACKPINK‘s Rosé and KARD‘s BM.
Ashley explained that she had a connection with the two friends because they were both expats just like her.
Ashley had spent her childhood in New York and moved to Korea to debut as a singer. Rosé is also known to have been raised in Melbourne, Australia and BM in Los Angeles, California.
Ashley apparently first met Rosé at a church where the two idols instantly developed a connection.
“When I first came to Korea, I went to church and the person who sat next to me was Rosé. After chatting with her for a while, we had a connection and ended up even going to a café afterwards.” ㅡ Ashley
It’s only understandable that idols with a similar background would be close with each other. BLACKPINK’s Lisa is also known to be close with GOT7‘s BamBam, CLC‘s Sorn and 2PM‘s Nichkhun, who are all from Thailand.
Fans hope these friendships will become long-lasting friendships that could help the artists at times when they are homesick. Here’s to more beautiful idol friendships!
