Friendships between K-Pop idols are something fans always look forward to. Seeing your favorite stars interact with each other and become close just fills a special spot in your heart—especially when the queens of K-Pop are involved. Some expected and some out of the blue, here are some of the best friendships that the third generation’s “Big 3” girl groups share.
1. Joy (Red Velvet) & Sana (TWICE)
Red Velvet’s Joy and TWICE’s Sana have been caught all over each other on numerous occasions. Be it the at music shows or award shows, they never fail to make fans smile with their cute interactions.
One fan favorite is the time Joy and fellow member Irene seemingly complimented Sana’s new hair color at the end of The Fact Music Awards.

Another sweet moment came at the 2018 Music Bank Half Year Special when both stars spent some time interacting with fans as they giggled and held hands with each other. They even walked off the stage with their hands locked.

2. Seulgi (Red Velvet) & Jisoo (BLACKPINK)
One of the most prevalent friendships between these three groups is the bond between Red Velvet’s Seulgi and BLACKPINK‘s Jisoo. Their love for each other was made public to fans when Joy exposed Seulgi and Jisoo’s lunch date during an interview.
One of their most iconic interactions was the funny story Jisoo recently shared on live broadcast.

3. Jennie (BLACKPINK) & Nayeon (TWICE)
The unexpected but much-loved friendship between TWICE’s Nayeon and BLACKPINK’s Jennie was revealed to the public a long time ago when their selfie with Jisoo surface online. The best part was that the selfie was taken pre-debut, meaning Jennie, Nayeon, and Jisoo have been besties since their trainee days.
Since then, fans have caught many other instances where Nayeon and Jennie cutely showed the heartwarming bond they share with each other. For example, everyone loves the time Jennie kept Nayeon entertained while she was performing on stage.

4. Nayeon (TWICE) & Yeri (Red Velvet) & Rosé (BLACKPINK)
Seems like Nayeon is TWICE’s social butterfly, because the joint friendship between Nayeon, Red Velvet’s Yeri and BLACKPINK’s Rosé has fans of all three groups begging for interactions of them together. This lovely friendship triangle has taken many forms, from Nayeon accompanying Yeri when she visited a birthday event ReVeluvs organized…

… to Yeri being an avid viewer of Rosé’s Instagram lives…
… to Rosé using Nayeon’s phone to take gorgeous mirror selfies.
These three are clearly all close with each other, and the internet can’t wait to crash once all three show up in the same frame.
5. Irene (Red Velvet) & Jennie (BLACKPINK)
And last but definitely not least, one of the most hyped friendships among K-Pop fans has to be “Jenrene”. It all started in a hair salon when Jennie shyly approached Irene, and the rest is history. Although both stars said they rarely get to meet up because of their busy schedules, fans have been treated the multiple interactions between them. Whenever their promotions coincide, they always show each other plenty of love.

And they love to send each other gifts too.
Their precious hug on Instagram may be one of their best interactions to date.
