Networking is an important factor these days for idols. There are certain idols who just seem to be friends with everyone, including very important people in the industry.

Some of the idols acquire these connections through their label, some of them are personal friends, and some just seem to have popped up randomly. 

Media outlet Dispatch and JD Visual Dive recently reviewed some of the most well connected idols in the industry. Check them out below!

Big Bang's G-Dragon

G-Dragon has a lot of friends in the K-pop industry such as Jo Kwon, Jun.K, Jay Park, Shin Se Kyung, Yoon Eun Hye, etc, but he's also friends with a lot of foreign artists, as well! He's got connections to Will Smith, Missy Elliott, Flo Rida, Justin Bieber, Mizuhara Kiko, and most recently, Hungarian model Barbara Palvin. He also has many friends in the fashion-industry such as Lee Soo Hyuk.

2NE1's CL

CL is also friends with a lot of K-poppers such as Sohee, Nicole, Mir, Hyoyeon, and Min, but she's got her own collection of international friends such as Kanye West, Will.I.Am, and, most famously, designer Jeremy Scott.

Out of everyone on this list, BoA's been in this industry for the longest, and she's got friends where most people had no clue about. She's famously close with Lee Hyori and Kahi, but she's also friends with actors such as Yoo Hae Jin, Lee Jun Ki, Jang Hyuk, and Shin Se Kyung. In terms of foreign stars, she's got connections to divas like Avril LavigneBritney Spears, and Koda Kumi.

KARA's Nicole

Of course, Nicole's most famous connections is her 91-line, including SHINee's Key, MBLAQ's Mir, 2AM's Jinwoon, and many others. But she's also friends with others like Hwangbo, Jaejoong, Yunho, Park Myung Soo, and even movie director Kang Jae Kyu. Internationally, she's got connections with AKB48's Maeda Atsuko

Super Junior's Siwon

Siwon has connections all over the world, across various industries and platforms. He's good friends with singers such as Nichkhun and Sangchu, but he's also really close with actors such as Jung Woo Sung, and Song Seung Hun.
