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!

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
