As an experienced group on Mnet's 'Kingdom', BTOB showed their friendship and affection towards their junior group Stray Kids, especially after being paired for the show's second round. Stray Kids, who covered BTOB's "I'll Be Your Man", showed a charismatic side to themselves while delivering a heartfelt story in the performance. Meanwhile, BTOB covered Stray Kids' "Back Door", transforming the heavy dance number into a musical-like vocal-oriented song.
After the episode, Eunkwang took to his Instagram and left an adorable message in the captions: "Why aren't you coming in? But, above all, thank you to our friends SKZ who made our 'I'll Be Your Man' so cool, and I love you<3".
Seeing this post, netizens left positive comments supporting their friendship. Some comments include:
"I'm a Melody, and now I'm a Stray Kids fan. They look fierce on stage but off-stage they are like little lambs who submit to BTOB"
"I love their friendship"
"BTO-Kids all the way!"
"Can't wait to see more of Bang Chan and Peniel's chemistry, too"
"Their chemistry was the BEST"
"Aw Eunkwang is like a proud father"
