This cute conversation quickly garnered the attention of fans as many were envious of Rei as she became a successful fan who got to meet her favorite idol and even talk to her.
Netizens commented, "She's the most successful fan. She came to Korea to be a celebrity because of her bias, she successfully debut and goes to the same hair shop as her bias and now she keeps in contact with her. This is like a fantasy not realistic," "She even as the photo card for their latest album," "Heol, they been keeping contact...so cute," "I'm so envious of her life being able to send a fan art directly to her favorite artist. I want to live that life too, Rei had the ability and the visual to do that, that's why she debuted and she now is friends with her bias. I'm so envious," "Joy seems to take good care of her juniors," and "Rei is so cute, but Joy seems to sound cuter on Kakaotalk, lol, the messenger seems like she's talking with her younger cousin."
