While you're waiting
patiently for the Lunar New Year special '2019 Idol Star Athletics Championship' coming up in February, you can build up your anticipation with these fun stories via fans who personally went to the recording back on January 7!
According to IZ*ONE fans, member Miyawaki Sakura's cuteness captured not only WIZ*ONE's hearts, but also the hearts of fans from other fandoms!
Some time during the 'ISAC' recording, one Seventeen fanclub handed out hotdogs as snacks to their fandom. IZ*ONE happened to be sitting right in front of the Seventeen fans' designated seats, and according to fan accounts, Miyawaki Sakura's "eyes and body turned around immediately toward the hotdogs".
Another Seventeen fan's fan account read, "A staff said to us kekekeke who wants hotdogs~~~ and Sakura-san also raised her hand >.<"
In the end, a Seventeen fan who happened to be sitting right behind Sakura offered her a bite of her hotdog! Later on, the fan wrote via her SNS, "Sakura-san had a bite of mine TT".
You can watch Miyawaki Sakura (and also Choi Ye Na) nom-ing on bites of Seventeen fans' hotdogs, below:
Seeing this, the Seventeen fanclub eventually handed out hotdogs to the entirety of IZ*ONE! From across the stadium, IZ*ONE fans also noted that Miyawaki Sakura raised her hand enthusiastically once again when asked if anyone wanted cola, as such below:
Fans reacted with comments like, "OMG so cute TT", "Seventeen fans and IZ*ONE fans got along well thanks to the famous hotdog incident kekekeke", "Wow she must have really wanted that hotdog kekekeke", "I'm so jealous Seventeen fans got to sit behind IZ*ONE TT", and more!
Can't wait to see IZ*ONE's first ever appearance on MBC's '2019 Idol Star Athletics Championship'!
