Artists in the K-pop music industry are bound to share friendships with one another even though they do not belong to the same group. Especially artists born in the same year are bound to get close as they share similar experiences and hardships in becoming a singer and surviving in the competitive, cut-throat industry.
The netizen who created the post uploaded another social media post from another netizen who shared the photo of the singers' signatures and wrote, "How can this be!!! I. So I went to a restaurant that my uncle owns, and he said the two of them came to eat...are they close???" The creator of the post explained, "It's nice to see the two 98 liners. Jungwoo and Seungkwan are close, and it's unexpected."
